Porky'sInspired by trips to America, Joy and Simon Brigg have brought a taste of what they tried on their travels - in diners, drive-ins and dives - to Camden. Barbecue is at the heart of Porky's. Memphis does it best, apparently, and Porky's aims to recreate the rich flavours of Memphis BBQ. That means pulled pork that's been cooked low and slow (for over 16 hours) in the smokers they have imported from Oklahoma. Burgers - 6oz homemade 100 per cent British beef pattie with lettuce, tomato and onion in a sesame bun - can be pimped to become a porky burger when they're topped with pulled pork, crispy bacon and jack cheese. Meaty ribs and rib tips, homemade BBQ sauce, juicy burgers, whole smoked chickens are also on offer. Best washed down with a cold American or local craft beer while listening to classic Tennessee tunes.
