Catrina, Jessica, me and Bee. I promised this would be the title photo for this post even though it has nothing to do with burgers.
For one day only, I joined Squeal Street BBQ as they competed in Best Memphis Burger Festival at Minglewood Hall in Midtown. I have always admired the way these guys operated and wanted to be a part of them, if only for a day. Today I got my wish. Here are some photos.
Squeal Street promised they’d take good care of me, and they did.
One of many good Talley pics I would take today.

I didn’t realize Flying Saucer’s managers had volunteered to help with the chalk art.
No idea what was happening here.
