Zeke's Smokehouses in Montrose and West Hollywood are offering an amaaaazing deal (imagine me waving my arms around like in a Crazy Eddie commercial right now)! For only 9.95 you can choose 2 meats and 2 sides! It doesn't sound too different from your usual Southern "Meat and Three" dish, but the amount of food on the plate is unbelievable. Enough for me and my dog, Spot! (cue the tiger) Come on down and see us!

Some people take their BBQ very seriously. They will throw down with you over dry rub versus mop, grilling versus smoking, Texas versus Tennessee. Zeke's Smokehouse is being kind of ballsy just by offering more than one "regional" BBQ. They focus on Kansas City, Texas, North Carolina and Memphis. Our host for the evening did want to clarify that there are influences from other regions as well, and their "North Carolina" BBQ is actually a combination of North and South Carolina. As sacreligious as it may be, I have to agree as North Carolina BBQ reminds me of bland gravy.
