The smoke from a wood-fire oven enhances meat with complex flavors and can create a smoke screen so that no one sees you eat an entire roast boar. Pig out with this Groupon.

Pittsburgh Barbecue Company
Though you can grab a sandwich and slaw in mere minutes at the carry-out windows of Pittsburgh Barbecue Company, the meal components are by no means slapped together. The cooking process stretches across 18 aromatic hours, with pit masters slowly cooking Texas-style brisket, North Carolina–style pulled pork, and slabs of ribs over the low heat of cherry- and maple-wood flames. The smoldering logs are what imbue the meats with the majority of their beloved smoky flavors, enhanced by just small splashes of Carolina-style, vinegar-based barbecue sauce or coatings of a 17-ingredient spice rub. To complement meaty main dishes, the staff cooks up homestyle sides such as slaw, baked apples, and mac ‘n’ cheese.
