Barbecue is often heralded as the best combination of meat and fire since jerky candles. Eat a variety of fire-formed meats with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of slow-simmered barbecue fare at Red Hot & Blue in Winston-Salem.
Red Hot & Blue draws from many corners of the Southern map to bring together a mix of classic barbecue and traditional Southern cuisine served amid an array of handpicked blues memorabilia. Red Hot & Blue cooks top-quality meats atop a smoky bed of hickory logs on which relatively low temperatures and long cooking times infuse eats with succulence. The meaty mélange encompasses three ways to order ribs: wet, slathered with Mojo mild barbecue sauce; dry, rubbed with a blend of Memphis-style spices; or sweet, dripping with a more sugary sauce and a never-ending stream of compliments about your outfit ($21.99/full slab; $14.99/half slab).
Strata of pulled pork and onion-ring straws balance on the half-pound beef patty of the All-In burger, smothered in cheddar cheese and mild barbecue sauce ($8.99). Sides and appetizers tiptoe the Mason-Dixon Line with deep-fried hush puppies ($1.99), catfish fingers ($6.99), and a golden-fried onion-ring loaf ($5.99), and slices of pecan pie ($4.99) treat taste buds to an authentic taste of the South and its ice-cream-filled volcanoes.
