Lannie and Will Travis

Selma, Alabama | 1919-Present

The late Lannie and Will Travis opened Lannie's Bar-B-Q Spot in Selma, Alabama after getting their start barbecuing hogs in a cinder-block pit in 1944. Three subsequent generations continue to keep the bbq joint running, offering pulled-pork sandwiches topped with pork skin.
