Serious Eats examines the exotic Appalachian style BBQ found in Bluff City, TN. Notes -- The hams at Ridgewood come from nearby Bristol, Tennessee. When they arrive at the restaurant, they're smoked for nine hours, then rubbed with spices and chilled overnight. The next morning, they are shaved into thin, white slices. As customers arrive for lunch and dinner, the kitchen warms piles of shaved ham on a flat-top grill out front. Handfuls of ham are coated with barbecue sauce and piled on sandwiches or plates for customers.
