Dining on tangy barbecue was recently voted the best way to overcome cottonmouth, finishing just ahead of drinking water and removing cotton from the mouth. Flood your maw with a river of sauce with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue fare at Memphis Smoke House in Saratoga Springs.
Memphis Smoke House's menu showcases scores of tangy Southern-style barbecue entrees and hearty sides. The kitcheneers spice-rub each pork entree—including the half rack of baby back ribs ($9.95)—for 24 hours before slow smoking the meat to seal in a torrent of tangy taste. The pulled chicken cooks slowly in a seasoned rub over oak, hickory, and apple woods, which imbue the bird with smoky zest and prove that trees have uses beyond housing runaway kites ($9.95). Or break in bibs with the spice-marinated smoked barbecue brisket ($12.95) or smoked sausage dinner ($11.95).
Formerly known as Mr. Ed's Ice Cream Station & Pizza, Memphis Smoke House's menu retains the frozen treats and delectable hot dogs of the former eatery, including the cheddar chili ($1.90) and sauerkraut ($1.60) furters. Patrons tired of sorting through dictionaries to guess their neighbor's network password can freely surf the Internet on the restaurant's complimentary WiFi network.
Memphis Smoke House
After scouring the United States in pursuit of its finest barbecue, Memphis Smoke House's chefs embraced Tennessee's tangy and sweet flavors as their culinary medium. The barbecue aficionados eschew charcoal in favor of oak, hickory-apple, and cherry hardwoods to slow smoke their briskets, chicken, turkey legs, and ribs each day. They rub meats in specialty spices before smoking them, then douse the tenderized morsels in house-made memphis bourbon barbecue sauce. The staff serves each platter with cornbread and authentic Southern-style sides of Cajun hand-cut fries, hush puppies, or mashed-potato molds of Robert E. Lee. In their dining room, cool air wafts through the wall's colorful signs, and classic music resounds across an outdoor seating area beneath a red-and-white tent. Memphis Smoke House can also cater get-togethers ranging in size from 15 people to large events of 300.
