Back then he only served BBQ on the weekend. I was a member of the 101st Airborne back then. We lived close by for several months and on most Saturdays I would go by and order 2 lbs of BBQ. I have lived in numerous states and countries, and as a Southerner with worldwide BBQ experience, I can say this... More

Small town just a short drive from Hopkinsville KY, this little gem was very busy when we arrived at 11:15. Cars were parked in the driveway and in the grass. The Hickory smoke coming from the pit was very inviting. People were lined up outside and you order as soon as you walk in. Oscar, the 78 year old owner,... More

Knockum Hill BBQ is the very finest southern BBQ, IMHO, anywhere in the south! Seriously fabulous pulled pork cooked perfectly. Large portions. Outdoor eating on picnic tables in addition to indoor tables. A favorite with locals...because it is simply the best BBQ in the world :) Some folks get a plate meal (white bread, of course) but I get a... More

From Clarksville, you'll travel down a few country roads surrounded by farmhouses and cornfields. Knockum Hill BBQ is worth the drive. Very friendly people serve a limited menu of all pork BBQ, traditional sides, slices of bread with every plate, and great sliced pie. They're only open (I'm told) on Fridays and Saturdays. Plenty of outdoor seating if the inside... More

This place is off the beaten path but well worth it. We met our daughter-in-law for lunch in late June 2013. Lots of Ft Campbell military folks present; seems to be a favorite for lunch, so you know its good. We ordered pulled pork and were given a large portion with 2 sides for a great price. The meat was... More
