Memphis Barbecue is about pig, either ribs or shoulders. The pork is usually slow grilled in a pit. If ribs are the meat of choice, then the pork is either cooked dry or wet. What that means is that if cooked dry, it will be covered with a dry rub of salt and other spices. There is no sauce added. If it is cooked wet, it will be brushed with sauce before, during, and after grilling.
