It is becoming more and more obvious that ChiTownDiner thinks he is in my will, because he seems intent on trying to kill me. For proof, just look at the list of the restaurants he made me go to yesterday. Now that cousin Johnny is in town, maybe we have a chance to overpower him and take control of the wheel.

Meanwhile, the three of us are headed to Pancake Pantry for an early breakfast with local legend Poverty Pete.

You folks are certainly setting an 'Intense' pace for this trip. I hope you are getting photo evidence of these stops. I get the feeling that every possible food stop in the area will support a visit from one or more Glee-Clubber !  I hope to get a photo of some of those  2 for a Buck Tacos from a Jack-in-the-Box (The closest one to me is in Nashville somewhere).
   Meantime Keep up the good work. The Cavalry is mounting up and getting ready to "Charge" south early in the morning.

CTD:  Your day consisted of more food than I consume in a week.  How you do it, I will never know.  It will be interesting to see if BB and cousin Johnny can approach your intensity.

Oh man, am I jealous of all of you. Once again, I couldn't make it as I have to be in Dallas for a confectionery business event that runs Sunday to Wednesday.
Have a great time - it's already started I can see.

Pogophiles & CajunKing will be lunching at

Martin's BBQ Joint - in Nolensville (SE of Nashville)
7238 Nolensville Rd, Nolensville TN

It may help you to know that Martin's is located just off Nolensville Rd and is partially obscured by a Sonic Drive-in.  What you are looking for behind the Sonic is this:

We opened with Pancake Pantry which was as solid and good as ever....but two surprises...

The almond croissant across the street at Provance was very good. Light, flakey, buttery with a strong almond flavor. We did try any of the French pastries but they looked delicious!

Strong showing at booze & biscuits which is Wendall Smith's restaurant located right behind Wendall Smith's liquor store which is located on Wendell Smith's corner! Biscuits galore....with gravy, with bacon & cheese, with country ham & cheese and with eggs & gravy....really good and a steady traffic stream!

What the write-ups by the "Scouts" and "Pathfinders" are doing to me is taking me back a decade when we started 'recording' our roadfood adventures...instead of making them a post-script to the roadtrips we enjoyed.  While I make no claim to be able to keep up with the number of stops and the variety of the sampling going on right now, I know that the discussions of the weekend will be a real adventure in "Roadfood As It Should Be" !!
 
Keep it up , folks. Your reports are great.   See you all soon, with one eye on the Sunday Morning weather.

Al, I did as you suggested, I called Knockum Hill Bar-B-Q (270-271-2957) at 3:30 this afternoon, but unless a customer ordered ahead of time, they're going to be out of luck with that giant pork chop, including me.  They won't have any more in until next Friday.  Oh, well.  Very small operation.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised.  Still, they have ribs and barbecue.  So I'll be there.

Well, I had a feeling he wasn't just bragging about 'running out' before anyone gets there. I am glad we reserved some for the group. Despite what the big-eaters say, I think sharing those big ones will be the best plan.  I am bringing a Filleting Knife so we won't break 100 plastic knives trying to cut up the chops.

I am considering this a "coffee and doughnuts" sort of opening location. The BBQ stop following will bring out the carnivore in us.

I've got my plans already worked out after I leave Knockum Hill.  I'm going back to Silke's and thoroughly explore this place.  That menu has some items I've never tried anywhere before.

See you all in the morning!  Looking forward to everything.  I got caught up in traffic and didnt make it to Patterson House.  How was it?  After hearing about Rotier's, I went there instead....the HBC was everything it was reported to be!

The bacon old fashioned was almost as delightful as the company (excluding the curmudgeon, of course).

We have arrived at Nashville. This was a near thing, because a delayed flight on the first leg of our trip meant that we almost ended up spending the night in Newark.

And then we discovered after midnight that the hotel had canceled our reservation. I'm a little bitter.

We can't make Silke's without being miserable and crabby all day, and Knockum Hill is uncertain, much as I've wanted to visit there. I'll call Cliff or Al once we know what's up. We would definitely like to join folks in the afternoon, and we will definitely be at the Loveless.

It is a little after 2:00 AM. We are loading up and will be on the road shortly. Looking forward to a very busy and fun day. See you-all in the "Dawn's Early Light".
 
Ralph-  812-972-1100. We should be in Clarksville about 7:30 AM.  I understand about the long and disappointing night making an early wake-up difficult...sure hope you can do the Knock'em Hill stop though. Keep us informed when you get rolling.

It is 6:00AM in Knoxville and I will leave here in about two hours.  I gotta havea cup of coffee with Mamaw Smith in a few minutes.  I will be at the Maxwell house about 10:00AM.
 
Maybe a little BBQ, hot chicken and hot fish for lunch?  PP suggested Jack's BBQ very close to the Ryman Auditorium.

Friday Lunch
 
Pogophiles, My dad & I met up for some Redneck Tacos at Martin's BBQ Joint.
 
http://martinsbbqjoint.com/
 
Martin's BBQ Joint
7238 Nolensville Rd
Nolensville, TN
 
I got a text from pogo as we were about a mile from the place, that said he would be sitting in front of the place.  We arrived and sure enough sitting RIGHT in front of the door sat Pogo in an adirondak chair.
 

 
You could smell the hickory a mile away.  This is going to be good!
 

 
You walk into the place and it hits you, this place has been designed specifically for a BBQ JOINT.   The decor is a mix of pigs and country music (nostalgic items).  The smell of BBQ hits you in the face and wafts over you beckoning you to come in and enjoy.
 
We did just that.
 
pogophiles ordered the bbq chicken redneck taco.
 

 
My dad LOVES brisket... So

 
I ordered the redneck taco pulled pork and a smoked turkey sandwich


 
Ok before you ask
 
Red neck taco:
Johnny Cake, BBQ Meat, Martin's signature White Sauce, Coleslaw
 
The white sauce is not a 'Bama white, it should be called more of a light pink sauce, and it is durn good.
 
The smoked turkey sandwich was tender, moist and just a touch of the white/lite pink sauce

 
Here sits our wonderful host (in the obligatory RFer eating RF picture) Pogophiles

 
Here is one of the indoor smoke pits


 
The outdoor area we sat in got a little smokey, they opened one end up and it sucked the chimney smoke through into the room.

Dad did laundry when we got home cause the dawg was going nuts over our clothes we smelled like when had been to a campfire.  (SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH)
 
Seeing some wonderful looking pies when we ordered I went back and ordered some.  Thinking "What would Buffetbuster do??"
 
I know order both kinds.
 
Chocolate "fudge" Pie

Pecan

 
Neither pie was overly sweet, the pecan was the better of the two, i really wanted to like the chocolate pie, but it was only OK
not really fudgy, more crumbly.  The pecan was just right amount of sweetness.
 
They have a wide variety of old fashioned sodas as you can see in the pie pix
 
Peach Nehi and Sundrop
 
I fell in love as we left the building:

 
Now that is a serious competition and catering pit
 
Pogophiles had to ge back to work so we headed out.
 
BTW:  Chris, dad said to tell you THANK YOU about a million times on the ride back.

We are currently waiting in line at the Pancake Pantry. From there, we're likely to seek hot chicken, though what we desire most is the company of other Glee Club folks. My phone number is 412-580-5644; please call or text to help us meet up.
