Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip 'n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of barbecue fare and drinks at Bad to the Bone Bar-BQ in Slidell.
Bad to the Bone Bar-BQ sates saucy appetites with ample portions of Texas-style slow cooked, wood-smoked barbecue. Saddle up next to a table and spur taste buds with a savory three-rib plate ($10), with meaty bones slathered in homemade sauce and smoked for more than six hours, until full of robust, caramelized flavor. Anchor lighter appetites with a Bar-BQ sandwich ($4), featuring an incisor-enthralling portion of pulled pork on a butter-toasted bun. For insatiable stomachs and those collecting material for a new line of meat tuxedos, Bad to the Bone Bar-BQ offers a combination plate ($10), where carnivores can choose a half-pound of sausage, pork, ham, or brisket in any combination. Pork butts and briskets stargaze in a smoker for 14 hours, ensuring tender, juicy meat that nearly falls off the bone and into a saucy abyss of barbecue bliss.
Bad to the Bone Bar-BQ understands that meat can get lonely, so accompaning some of their meals is a security blanket of peach cobbler, potato salad, coleslaw, and baked beans to keep monsters under the bed or inconveniently in the icebox.
