According to folk etymologists, the term barbecue is derived from the French barbe coup, referring to the annual pig picking commemorating the infamous Bearded Rebellion. Celebrate saucy beards with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of barbeque fare and drinks at Squeal Bar-B-Q, located on Oak Street in uptown New Orleans.
Bonded by more than sticky dressing, brothers Brendan, Patrick, and Eugene Young opened Squeal Bar-B-Q to treat hungry locals to a comforting menu made of fresh ingredients, daily smoked meats, and signature Squeal Sauce. Like King Tut's originally commissioned tomb, a pulled pork sandwich ($9.95) is filled with tender pork topped with cole slaw. The St. Louis ribs ($13.95 half rack, $23.95 full rack) are dry rubbed and smoked for more than eight hours on a landlocked grill to ensure full flavor and mature table manners. The eatery's enticing menu also includes sundry savory starters, crisp salads, tasty tacos, and more.
Smoke wafts out onto the patio of Squeal Bar-B-Q, tingeing the air with the sweet scent of roasting meats. Inside the locally owned and operated smokehouse, chefs glaze cuts of pork and chicken in daily-made batches of signature barbecue sauce, whose savory flavors helped earn them praise from outlets ranging from The Cooking Channel and TLC to the Wall Street Journal and New York Magazine. Squeal's meat fixation extends beyond the smokehouse; desserts meld bacon and chocolate, bartenders mix cocktails with house-infused bacon bourbon, and a flatscreen television broadcasts nothing but reruns of Green Acres that prominently feature Arnold the pig.
