Got any Qs on barbeques? You’re in the right place!

Barbeque: the art of cooking food for a long time. Perhaps the one thing that we can truly call American food, the slow cooked meats have been the main course at all sorts of parties ranging from tailgates to graduations. Although I can’t deny the beauty of home cooked barbecue, where does one go when they don’t have a full day to stand in front of the grill? In Arlington Heights, it’s Big Ange’s and Porky’s. Big Ange’s, which serves quality “que” from 11-7, which apart from the classic brisket and ribs, is best known for its specialty sandwiches. Porky’s is another great take out option on the south side of Arlington Heights that similarly serves great food. A little further away (and a little more expensive) is the famous Chicago Culinary Kitchen. Some aspects of the menu remain the same at CCK such as the brisket, pulled pork, and ribs, but they are mainly known for their fluctuating menu items including, but not limited to bacon wrapped rib tips, different hamburger concoctions, and so much more. Don’t expect to find a lot of vegetables at these restaurants, but the taste and flavor is worth the increase in cholesterol level in your body.
