A New Rib Joint from the Rockit Guys

The Rockit, Sunda and Underground guys get into the barbecue business next week with Dragon Ranch Moonshine & BBQ. No doubt, you have questions. Let’s break it down:

It’s just good old-fashioned American barbecue...
There’s oak, cherry and hickory-applewood smoke on your ribs. A sizzling cast-iron skillet heats your rigatoni mac and cheese. A caddy delivers all the regional sauces you require—sticky/sweet, mustardy, tangy and... well, Asian.

See, it’s also kind of Asian.
There’s bao with brisket. Roasted duck. Fish sauce aged in bourbon barrels. And a Dragon Egg: a duck egg wrapped in sausage and deep-fried. You knew those chopsticks were on the table for a reason.

There really is a lot of moonshine...
They’ve got the city’s largest white-lightning selection. They’re even partnering with Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks, Michigan, to make their own. (Look for Billy Dec driving the General Lee soon.) But it’s cocktails like the Bushwhacker—think: a chocolate moonshine milkshake—that will curl your toes.

You’re going to make a lot of new friends...
The tables are communal, so make room. While you’re at it, point out the design details to your new sticky-fingered friends—like that glass-bottle collection excavated from the basement that survived the Great Chicago Fire. Now that was a year for barbecue.
