Barbecuing, like painting, usually entails the use of a brush, a master's touch, and the building anticipation to eat your finished product. Enjoy saucy masterworks with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue and American fare at Bay City Smokehouse.
Bay City Smokehouse's chefs slather slow-roasted meats with signature sauces in a relaxed, Green Bay Packers–themed atmosphere. Hickory smoke envelops succulent ribs with plumes of piquant flavor ($16.95 for a half rack; $19.95 for a full rack), and secret-recipe Sassy Sauce imbues tender beef brisket ($11.95) and pulled pork ($11.25) with zesty spices and Dorothy Parker’s best bon mots. Other classic American fare such as creamy spinach and artichoke dip ($7.95) join the half-pound Ranchero burger ($7.95), which corrals jalapeño poppers, lettuce, and ranch dressing into a kaiser-roll stockade. Darts and a pool table dapple the floor of the lively sports bar, where 20 large televisions beam sports games across the room and vibrant wall murals depict great moments in Packers history, such as the day the color green was invented.
