Edley’s Bar-B-Que smokes all meats fresh daily using local White Oak wood. The meat is smoked low and slow. They smoke only enough meat for the day, so it is a first come first serve kind of place. The result is a flavor of meat that keeps people coming back for more. They also prepare eight to ten Southern-style side dishes made from scratch everyday with recipes derived from mothers, grandmothers, nannies and housekeepers. These side dishes coupled with the fresh, smoked meats will quickly and easily make Edley’s Bar-B-Que the best Bar-B-Que in Nashville.

Ribs. Pork. Chicken. Brisket. Hell, even sausage. All BBQ has the same three basic ingredients: smoke, meat and time. What makes it different is the amount, consideration and attention to each part of that recipe. That, and some really great bbq sauce, too. At Jim ‘N Nick’s, they pride themselves on using the right ingredients, taking their time and honoring the traditions that brought us barbecue.
