Don’t burn your bird this Thanksgiving and be the undisputed champion of the holiday by having one of our local talented pitmasters cook for you. They won’t show up to your house but they will give you everything you need to make a memorable meal. It’s time to put an end to Aunt Betty’s Waldorf Salad and whatever that green jello thing is and replace with smoked brisket, turkey, collard greens, mac & cheese, and bourbon pecan pie!
Here are a few offerings from local barbecue joints to make your turkey day pretty awesome.
