In the late 1800s, thousands of Texans struck it rich when they tapped into veins of thick, dark, tangy barbecue sauce (as chronicled in the Oscar-winning film There Will Be Sauce). Today's Groupon gives you the chance to taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth: for $7, you get $15 worth of saucy sustenance and drinks at Chatt Smokehouse. Within a casual, frill-free environment, Chatt Smokehouse lavishes taste buds with meaty treats rich in barbecue traditions upheld by the resident pitmaster. Whether grazing on chopped pork, nibbling on a rib sandwich, or being spoon-fed a slaw dog or rib plate by the Queen, customers can summon a potent one-two punch of deliciousness by pairing their smoky protein with a homemade side such as coleslaw or potato salad.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press featured Chatt Smokehouse:
- I got a huge serving of fall-off-the-bone ribs and two side dishes -- coleslaw and potato salad, both made from scratch and very good. I loved the slaw, and the potato salad was near perfection as well. The ribs came "wet," but I queried co-owner William Wright about this and was told that if the customer wants dry ribs, just be sure to ask. No problem. – Anne Braly, Chattanooga Times Free Press
