While eating meat hung just above a fire treats diners to a deliciously smoky flavor, eating meat toss directly in the flames treats diners to burnt tongues and breath that smells like lighter fluid. Strike a tender balance with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of smoked barbecue for take-out from The Pitt BBQ in Gretna.
From the foggy confines of their functioning smokehouse, The Pitt BBQ's meat magicians puff through traditional techniques to create platters of sauce-slathered meats. Quiet rumbling stomachs with a special plate, piled to the edges and beyond with a choice of savory pulled pork, brisket, pterodactyl, and more ($7.99). Two sides flank each plate's meaty main-eventers, with picnic classics such as baked beans, potato salad, and mac 'n' cheese quelling appetites alongside their barbecued brethren ($1.49–$1.99 for a small side, if ordered separately). Diners can share barbecued bounty with famished cohorts with an order of pork or brisket by the pound ($9.99) or a raft of individual sandwiches ($5.99).
The Pitt BBQ offers takeout fare tailored for summer happenings including picnics, parades, and Renaissance fairs. Take advantage of the drive-thru service or order at the counter and inhale the rich perfume of smoky goodness while your order is prepared.
