The Daily Pulse:

RIP William Dixson, of Dixson's Barbecue

We sorry to hear of the premature death, in a car wreck, of William Dixson, manager of Dixson's Barbecue, the longtime institution on Magnolia.

We're not sure what it means for the future of one of Knoxville's most authentic barbecue establishments, and perfecter of the Pigburger. (Was he was the only one who knew their rare recipes?) But our thoughts are with his family.

We visited the take-out restaurant a little over five years ago, and wrote a story about one of their best-known dishes.
