The Original Q-Shack is a barbecue joint that smokes pork butt, chicken, and turkey, and also offers chili-rubbed beef brisket and pork ribs. All of it is smoked in-house over a blend of hickory and mesquite woods.
If that's not enough, Southern Living recommends the desserts. They are "expertly prepared by two serious pastry chefs [and] take this barbecue restaurant to another level," as the magazine said in a write up.
