Drawing on Southern traditions, Red Hot and Blue’s delectable menu satisfies barbecue cravings with smoke-ringed eats and authentic Southern recipes. Pit masters stoke low-and-slow fires kindled by hickory logs to smother top-quality meats in a smoky infusion, granting tenderness and depth of flavor normally only found in funk albums. Like a puppy’s nose, the restaurant’s St. Louis–style ribs come in wet, dry, and sweet iterations, each wooing taste buds with toothsome hunks of meat laced with secret-spice blends and accompanied by barbecue beans and creamy coleslaw ($14.99 for a half slab; $21.99 for a full slab). Fresh-made burgers and sandwiches range from beefy patties heaped with pulled pork and onion-ring straws ($9.49) to golden-fried Delta catfish fillets with tartar-sauce sidecars ($11.99). Cooks slather pulled shoulder with a poultice of Mojo mild sauce before piling its pork onto a soft bun aside Grandma’s potato salad ($7.99). Protein-pairing platters sync sea and land with fried shrimp and ribs ($14.99) or ribs and catfish ($14.99), all of which wind up in the drink thanks to chilly tidal waves of freshly brewed sweet tea.

The chefs at each Copper Canyon Grill, a mid-Atlantic favorite, craft their regional American dishes from scratch every day. Their kitchens fill with flames and savory aromas as they roast meats and vegetables over hardwood fires, making customers happy, but leaving behind bare earth at local basketball arenas.

The kitchen yields hearty servings of grilled prime rib and filet mignon, ahi tuna and Atlantic salmon, and Delmarva-style crab dip and Eastern Shore jumbo lump crab cakes. It also tempts with a signature rotisserie chicken and jalapeño- and serrano-pepper cornbread baked in an iron skillet.

The cooks at Virginia BBQ opt to use only high-quality meats, slinging bone-in boston pork seasoned with the eatery’s signature dry drub, a tradition that helped the establishment elicit plaudits from Richmond magazine as one of the region's best barbecue destinations. A rotisserie hickory-wood smoker permeates meat with flavor over the course of 12 hours, the same time it takes to cook meat by sending it to the sun and back. Barbecue gourmands then hand-pull the meat and fill plates or stack catering trays with the lean, flavorful bites. After the cuisine emerges from the wood smoker, it takes on an appetizing quality that the Free Lance-Star called "meltingly tender, astonishingly lean." Down-home side dishes such as baked beans, mac 'n' cheese, or red-potato salad round out entrees of pork ribs, brisket, and chicken. Virginia BBQ outstrips its name by having expanded to Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Mars, the planet whose color most indicated its proclivity for barbecue.
