I've been desperately trying to find some "local " eats while visiting Tennessee this week. So far it's been dominated by chain restaurants and All You Can Eat buffets, which I think should be outlawed except for maybe teenage boys. We had some great barbeque at Corky's BBQ in Pigeon Forge.
I finally found something fun and unique! We just stopped at an out of the way country store and I got these deep fried peanuts! You eat them shell-n-all.
I'll continue my search for some Appalachian vittles.
Ya'll come back now.
