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 Jamaican barbecue fare at Cutlass Grille in Chesapeake.
Cutlass Grille's chefs invoke a diverse palette of Caribbean flavors to craft a menu of sweet and spicy Jamaican barbecue dishes culled from family recipes. A massive smoker spits out sizzling meats such as beef brisket ($7) and jerk chicken ($5)—both delivered with a fluffy roll to sop up any remaining sauces. Forks and knives play xylophonic reggae tunes on half rack of ribs ($13), and taste buds venture out of their comfort zones to check out the exotic flavors of oxtail ($9) and curried goat ($9). An array of Caribbean sides ($2.50 each) cures stronger cases of island fever, with delectable options that include plantains, rice and peas, and steamed cabbage with veggies.
