Barbecue, along with cowboy hats made from genuine bald eagle and being number one in sports nobody else plays, has become a hallmark of American culture. Enjoy authentic American eats with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue fare at Pig-N-Whistle in Bartlett.
Pig-N-Whistle slathers savory barbecue sauce onto every slice of pork, chicken, and turkey on its menu and hickory-smokes them inside an on-site smoker. Cheer up lonely taste buds with a chopped barbecue-shoulder sandwich nestled in a toasted bun, topped with barbecue sauce, and holding hands with cole slaw ($3.99). The full slab of ribs for one ($16.99) silences the stomach's growls and snarky TV recaps and is served with two sides, such as fried okra or barbecue baked beans. Finish the feast with Pig-N-Whistle's signature hot cobbler with ice cream, whose mingling of gooey warmth and freezing cold creates a mist thick enough to hide its eater from the searching eyes of implacable mall survey-takers.
