The folks at Blackwood BBQ operate with a simple but humble goal – to bring people together via tasty eats. They put loads of time and effort into each and every item on the menu, smoking their meats for 14 hours before serving them up in a variety of dishes. It’s not just the barbecue that gets such meticulous treatment, however. Something as seemingly simple as mac ‘n cheese takes hours to prepare here. Foodies throughout Chicago, IL looking to fully immerse themselves in the city’s food scene need to hit up Blackwood ASAP.
The mouth-watering array of meats here cover all the bases of veritable barbecue classics, offerings ranging from beef brisket to pulled pork to spicy pork sausage. You can snag your choice of protein served up on a platter, stuffed into a buttery brioche bun, or slathered in homemade salsa and cradled in a tortilla. Of course, no barbecue meats would be complete without a little sauce, and the spreads here don’t stick to the conventional. There’s a plethora of regional choices to sample. Get some mustard-rich taste from South Carolina, for example, or enjoy the robust flavor of North Carolina sauce. Really, it’s all well worth trying, so why are you even still reading this? Head out to Blackwood BBQ and grab a bite or book their trailer for your next event. Either way, it’ll be a tasty decision.
