Barbecue and politics have one thing in common: both can be messy. And nowhere is barbecue more famous or politics more strange than in Memphis, Tennessee.Pete Pigg is the owner of a popular Beale Street restaurant, the Pigg Pen, where customers ogle the Pigglette waitresses and toss gnawed-on pork bones into strategically placed buckets. Thanks to a quirk in the citys election laws, Pigg has managed to get himself elected mayor by campaigning in quilt-patched overalls and using schmaltzy slogans like Nobody knows how to cut pork like Mr. Pigg.But Mayor Pigg is no rube. Hes now firmly in control of city hall and up to something sleazy. When he announces plans to build the World Barbecue Hall of Fame in Memphis, it sounds good, but something unsavory lies just below the surface.Even con artists trolling for taxpayer dollars, an adult filmmaker intent on making Memphis the porn capital of the East, a serial arsonist known as the Ghetto Blazer, and a nefarious Kansas City entrepreneur who made his fortune on Rip-A-Chunk beef jerky may be no match for Mayor Piggs wheeling and dealing.Its up to an unlikely crew consisting of a cynical public relations man, a famous actress whos smarter than the roles she plays, a feisty young lawyer, an Elvis tribute artist, and a crossbow-toting hermit to expose the truth.As the story moves past Memphis landmarks such as Beale Street, Graceland, and Mud Island, the motley group of heroes gets a glimpse into the greed and corruption all too rampant in government.
