Barbecue chefs identify themselves by the signature flavors of their sauces, which they brush onto slabs of meat and hand to police officers during routine traffic stops. Sample handcrafted piquancy with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 12- to 14-pound smoked thanksgiving turkey at Granville’s BBQ (a $60 value).
Granville’s seasoned smokers have been spicing up meat morsels with their signature barbecue dry rub for more than 10 years. Customers should call the restaurant five days in advance to place dibs on their bird, allowing chefs ample time to bait and capture the feathery fowls with a series of birdcalls and contraptions built by Wile E. Coyote. Turkey technicians give poultry a natural spice massage before slow-smoking the meat at a low temperature to ensure tantalizing tenderness. Customers can pick up birds and bring them home for a Thanksgiving Day celebration or as inspiration for handprint-turkey artwork. Though not included in this Groupon, customers can opt to accompany meals with a selection of traditional southern sides, including collard greens ($1.50–$1.75), mac ’n’ cheese ($1.95–$4.95), baked potato salad with brisket ($10/quart), and broccoli cheese casserole ($8/quart).
