Barbecue is a distinctly American art form, much like jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Celebrate patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of barbecue fare at the Cockeyed Pig in Gallatin.
The Cockeyed Pig permeates a menu of ribs, brisket, and pulled pork with an outback smoker's timber-tickled flavors, complemented by headline-grabbing Ol' South Fine Swine barbecue sauce. Fire up chompers and high-octane sporks to slash through the Chainsaw's Favorite belief-beggaring feast of St. Louis–style ribs, pulled pork, and Hoot's Texas brisket, coupled with a duo of sides including the customer-favorite potato salad and Mama's style mac 'n' cheese ($20, serves one to two people). Pepe's burrito entree channels a border-bridging tortilla stuffed with sliced brisket into a basket trimmed with ranch house beans ($9.50). Hushpuppies huddle around the catfish dinner's stream-torn centerpiece ($8.95) to form a table decoration fit for a grizzly bear graduation.
Rustic western accents, including antique road signs, vintage records, and old-timey photos, fleck the eatery's interior, interspersed with rough-hewn wooden tables and discarded presidential dentures. Wagon wheels festoon the roof, which shelters a screened-in porch that plays host to a fleet of picnic tables and the giant smoker.
