One can always tell when the barbecuexplosion has been through town because of the molasses footprints and carelessly flung bibs that pave the streets. Tiptoe through the sauced streets with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get a barbecue-ribs meal from Hecky’s Barbecue in Evanston (up to a $29.89 total value). The meal includes the following:
- A full slab of baby-back or Hecky’s choice spare ribs (up to a $20.21 value)
- Two choice sides (up to a $3 value each)
- Two drinks (up to a $1.84 value each)
Hecky’s menu oversees the marriage of succulent meat and homemade barbecue sauce, which is crafted from a family creole recipe that assembles sweet, smoky, and spicy flavors. Feasters test the structural integrity of tables and tummies alike by grappling with a full slab of baby-back or Hecky’s choice spare ribs. To offset saucy bites, slabs can be teamed up with a pair of confidants selected from a lineup of classic southern sides, including mac ‘n’ cheese, creamy mashed potatoes, baked beans, corn on the cob, and coleslaw. Guests can then use included water or soda to hydrate their parched pipes or celebratorily pour over the heads of championship basketball players in the vicinity.
Hecky Powell—founder of Hecky's Barbecue—crafts his acclaimed signature barbecue sauce from a Creole family recipe before using it to marinate a surfeit of ribs, chicken, and seafood. Southern flavors abound in side dishes of jambalaya and dessert plates of sweet-potato pound cake, served in the casual dining spot or at parties with catering options. Hecky's ships the homemade barbecue sauce, dry rubs, and spices from its online store, posting recipes so that home cooks can simmer award-winning chili on their own stoves or volcano-mounted cauldrons.
