Lord of the Ring
A Serious BBQ Joint in Castleberry Hill

Sometimes, the best way to evaluate a good barbecue spot is to use the points system:

Plenty of flat-screens for watching Falcons away games: +2

Some sort of chipotle-dusted pig-ear situation: +2

Martinis made from boiled-peanut juice: +... 102

Cross the threshold into Smoke Ring, a gargantuan new meat palace gearing up to deploy its exhaustive wheelhouse of barbecued experiments upon your being, hoping to soft-open Saturday in Castleberry Hill.

This could be a restaurant or it could be the experimenting grounds of some sort of mad butcher. Doesn’t matter. Step inside. Let your eyes adjust to the floor-to-ceiling wood. Let your nose adjust to the smell of smoked-brisket burritos and spicy pork rinds. Let your ears adjust to the blues or Southern rock band playing on stage.

They’re hoping to be open with a limited menu for the Flux art fiasco in Castleberry Hill this weekend. But after that, when things are in full swing... well, you get the idea: casual lunches and dinners over pulled-pork sandwiches, bacon-wrapped Kobe beef hot dogs and rye whiskey.

Oh, and about that Boiled-Peanut Martini. Yeah, you’ll need to try that. It’s vodka mixed with boiled-peanut juice mixed with your face.

That last part’s crucial.
