Like phone numbers and ill-considered doctoral theses, barbecue sauce often ends up on a napkin. Dole out savory blots with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of barbecue at Boss Hawg's Barbeque & Catering Co..
The team at Boss Hawg's Barbeque & Catering Co, named "Topeka's Best Barbecue" by The Topeka Capital Journal, have spent 15 years slow-smoking a menu's worth of succulent meats. An appetizer portion of beef-brisket burnt ends ($9.99) preps taste buds for the Southern Pig-N-Slaw combo, a kaiser roll buried under a one-third pound of shredded pork and an avalanche of coleslaw ($10.49). Elizabeth's Favorite smoked-chicken dinner, named for the restaurant's co-founder and current reigning queen of England, square dances around the plate with made-from-scratch steak fries, slaw, corn bread, and fresh honey-butter partners ($10.99), and the half-pound hardwood-smoked Boss burger demands toppings such as bacon, cheese, and all the fixings ($9.49).
Boss Hawg’s Barbeque & Catering Co
The pit masters at Boss Hawg’s Barbeque & Catering Co, voted as having the Best Barbecue by Kansas Best 150 and continually proclaimed as having the Best Barbecue in Topeka by the Topeka Capital-Journal, have slowly smoked succulent meats over native hardwoods and charcoal for more than 15 years. Beginning as a one-woman catering business in the owner’s home kitchen, the eatery has grown into a 50-employee operation that serves more than 150,000 meals each year in a town of just 120,000 residents and only 100 forks. Each day, the cooks prepare picnic-style sides from scratch, boiling fresh potatoes before transforming them into salads and steak fries. To lock in moisture and flavor, the meat in the owner's preferred dish—the Elizabeth’s Favorite barbecued-chicken dinner—is served with its skin on, next to a cool scoop of coleslaw. The American Royal combo, a quarter-rack of ribs and quarter-pound of shredded meat or smoked sausage, comes with corn bread slathered in fresh honey butter and the imperial authority to declare Canada a fiefdom. When not dropping into the dining room for a casual dinner, barbecue lovers can place catering orders or book banquet meals in a private room that accommodates up to 100 guests.
