FoodWire: Pappy's Smokehouse Going Whole Hog Tomorrow

Pappy's Smokehouse (3106 Olive Street; Web site) celebrates its first birthday tomorrow, and the Midtown barbecue joint is throwing one heckuva party: Owner Mike Emerson informs me that right now two whole hogs are on the smoker, slowly transforming into what more than a few of us consider the best barbecue in town.

It's been quite a first year for Pappy's. Among many honors, it pulled off an unlikely -- but much deserved -- RFT trifecta: Best New Restaurant, Best Barbecue and the #1 spot in my Top Ten Dishes of 2008.

If you still haven't visited Pappy's, what are you waiting for? Read my review from last year and then get moving.
