The ‘Q’ Smoke Pit
We take the art of smoking and seasoning the finest barbecue very seriously – and very slowly. We only use the finest cuts of meat to ensure the highest quality product. Our Boston butts, ribs and chicken are all perfectly seasoned with our secret blend of herbs and spices, then slow-smoked to perfection. And the best part is that you get to enjoy the hours of serious flavor without the wait! Stop by for a sandwich or take home a pound for dinner. The smoker is scheduled to be at 4805 N. Broadway this week, Sept. 27-28.

Join us Friday, Sept. 27, from 4-7 p.m. for an Apple Stack Cake Show and Tasting. Enjoy free samples and get promotional pricing through Oct. 1 for $6.99 with ValuCard. This celebration of fall is in Food City stores with a bakery/deli.
