Though charcoal drawing was once the dominant artistic medium in America, precious few masterworks survived the realization that those early portraits could be crumpled up and used to smoke delicious stacks of ribs. Honor forgotten artists with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Southern barbecue fare at Red Hot and Blue. Choose from the following locations: Fairfax City, Herndon, or Kingstowne.

Drawing on Southern traditions, Red Hot and Blue’s delectable menu satisfies barbecue cravings with smoke-ringed eats and authentic Southern recipes. Pit masters stoke low-and-slow fires kindled by hickory logs to smother top-quality meats in a smoky infusion, granting tenderness and depth of flavor normally only found in funk albums. Like a puppy’s nose, the restaurant’s St. Louis–style ribs come in wet, dry, and sweet iterations, each wooing taste buds with toothsome hunks of meat laced with secret-spice blends and accompanied by barbecue beans and creamy coleslaw ($14.99 for a half slab; $21.99 for a full slab). Fresh-made burgers and sandwiches range from beefy patties heaped with pulled pork and onion-ring straws ($9.49) to golden-fried Delta catfish fillets with tartar-sauce sidecars ($11.99). Cooks slather pulled shoulder with a poultice of Mojo mild sauce before piling its pork onto a soft bun aside Grandma’s potato salad ($7.99). Protein-pairing platters sync sea and land with fried shrimp and ribs ($14.99) or ribs and catfish ($14.99), all of which wind up in the drink thanks to chilly tidal waves of freshly brewed sweet tea.
