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 $12, you get $25 worth of carryout smokehouse fare at Phoebe's Bar-B-Q at the Center City location.

Garnering buzz from blogosphere foodies HollyEats.com and Foodaphilia, Phoebe's Bar-B-Q replicates smokehouse fare from the heart of Oklahoma on its carryout menu of pork, beef, and chicken dishes. An extra-large platter of pork includes seven ribs that, much like booby traps designed to bait T. rexes, are sheathed in juicy meat, along with cornbread and two sides such as potato salad and sneaky spicy greens ($14.49). Incisors slice effortlessly through a 1/3 pound of tender beef brisket crowned with coleslaw and tangy sauce on a kaiser roll ($6.49). A whole rotisserie chicken ($8.49) crackles on a twirling spit before launching lithely into a front aerial flip and landing in steamy to-go containers. Orders can be placed on the phone ahead of time or at the register.

Phoebe's Barbecue

In a city known for its cheesesteaks, it can be difficult to find a beef brisket smoked to Midwestern perfection. Enter Anastasio Botsaris, the chef and owner of Phoebe's Bar-B-Q. Botsaris and his pit crew call forth a wide array of Oklahoma-style barbecue meats from the fires of their kitchen. They stress simplicity above all else, letting their smoked rotisserie chickens and pulled-pork sandwiches speak for themselves. They don't skimp on the sides, either, which include candied yams and collard greens, which are best washed down with a tall pint of barbecue sauce.
