Need BBQ suggestions for a friend going to Memphis next week

What's your favorite place (aside from your backyard) to eat BBQ?

My friend (who bought me my smoker as a house warming gift) is going to Memphis next week.
He asked that I do some research to find out what the "best of the best "is in Memphis.
Please name your recomemndations, and whats good there.
Thank you in advance.

The RENDEZVOUS' dry ribs are fantastic!!! Cab driver recommendation that was worth a bigger tip!! Sorry I just looked @ this thread today, maybe next visitor to Memphis can use... :D

As someone who goes to Memphis alot, I would advise your friend to try Silky O'Sullivans ribs. It is on Beale Street, can't miss it. You will probably meet and talk to Silky, too a nice guy. I don't think you can go wrong anywhere down there for BBQ. Rendezvous is killer, too, definately try them while your down there! I try to eat at both places each time I go. They have a killer sausage and cheese appetizer plate. Hope this helps, sorry its late, hopefully they return and can use the info!
