The sticky sweetness of barbecue sauce helps keep fall-off-the-bone meat morsels intact, much like glue helps keep a model plane from becoming a model plane wreck. Show your appreciation for this appetizingly edible adhesive with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of barbecue fare at Smokey Bones in Lithonia.
The mouthwatering menu at Smokey Bones stars a succulent spread of barbecued bliss, including hand-pulled pork that is hickory smoked for 11 hours each night ($10.99/platter) and a slow-smoked beef brisket that marinates for up to an entire day ($11.99/platter). Begin edible explorations with a sauce-proof map and a slice of skillet cornbread spread with honey-pecan butter ($5.99) before climbing a high-piled plate of smokehouse chicken––a fire-grilled, double chicken breast doused in bourbon-barbecue sauce with melted cheddar-jack cheese, peppered bacon slices, and crispy onion straws ($8.99). Like a forgetful butcher, the stacked baked potato uncovers meat in unlikely places, pilling pulled pork or beef brisket atop a loaded baked potato ($7.79), and baby-back ribs are fire-grilled to order and topped with a choice of brown-sugar glaze, original sauce, or Memphis-style dry rub ($17.99/half-rack, $20.98/whole).
Indecisive appetites can find palate peace by creating their own combo, selecting two ($11.99) or three ($14.69) carnivorous choices, including sliced smoked turkey breast, slow-smoked spiced sausage, chicken wings, and ribs (for an additional fee), and partnering up with any two sides, such as fire-roasted corn, cinnamon apples, or baked beans. Nab today's Groupon for an appetite so saucily fulfilled, ice-cream treats in home freezers will be forced to file lawsuits for gross negligence, and be sure to bring an extra dining shirt in your back pocket.
