According to folk etymologists, the term barbecue is derived from the French barbe coup, referring to the annual pig picking commemorating the infamous Bearded Rebellion. Honor facial-hair history in a similar way with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of food and drinks at Bad Brad's Bar-B-Q. This Groupon is only valid for redemption at Bad Brad's location in Yukon and in Stillwater.
Bad Brad's cavalcade of choice meats are slow cooked for hours in large smokers, harnessing the power of wood and flame with a smoldering vigor comparable to that of a young Orson Welles. All meat is trimmed or hand-cut to order, and side items are made fresh each day. Swathed in spices and 'cued-up for a carnivore's dilemma, the menu's bountiful, belt-buckle-busting meat list includes smoked beef brisket, pork tenderloin, polish sausage, hot links, turkey, ham, bologna, pork ribs, and chicken. Wedge your choice of smoked meat between two halves of a golden bun with the burly Trail Boss sandwich ($7.29) or his lankier Ranch Hand ($6.29), both topped with barbecue sauce and served alongside hand-cut home fries. If you prefer your meat liberated from the doughy confines of a breadshirt, opt for a plate dinner, such as the Sidekick ($7.39) with a smaller portion of one meat, or the three-meat threat of the Deluxe Plate ($10.39). All plate dinners are served with sliced bread and choice of two sides: home fries, cowboy beans, fried okra, coleslaw, baked beans, potato salad, corn on the cob, or green beans. Long-distance marathon eaters can supplement any meal with a la carte side items such as beer-battered onion rings ($4.29), cornbread ($1.69), or a single smoked-sausage hotdog ($2.79).
Dressed to the hilt with antiques, western memorabilia, and the somber busts of beasts that did not go gently into that good night, Bad Brad's Bar-B-Q offers a charmingly rustic atmosphere for smoky savoring. Should you choose to embark upon sauce-fueled stampedes within the privacy of your own floating saloon, today's Groupon is valid for carryout as well as dine-in service.
