You're a meat and potatoes eater who's watching the belt buckles closely. They say liquid diets work wonders, so swap them tots for some fermented treats and get a fine dose of culinary education to boot with this Adventure. Enjoy a day of barbecue, including a cooking demonstration at an outside pit, a tasting of three bourbons, one draft beer, a full barbecue meal, and live jazz music, all courtesy of Deke's Bar-B-Que.
We'll gather at Deke's on Shurs Lane in Philly, where our carnal purveyors will be waiting to make sure we get our fill of what's on the barbie. On hand will be the Deke's staff—mavens of slow-cooked meats and rich, tangy sauces—who'll take us out back to the cobblestone-laid patio for a 'que tutorial. They'll explain which woods work best to smoke meats and what rubs and coatings help the meat marble over the fire. Though a fire will be burning, be sure to bring warm threads, as spring is still in its infancy.
With our meats cooking over precision fire in the pit, we'll commence a lesson in bourbon. Expert connoisseurs from Deke's will help us identify the hints of floral, vanilla, smoke, and citrus that add to a bourbon's flavor and color through three tastings from the restaurant's top-notch stash. Warm to the core, we'll set down our tasting cups and lick our chops as we graze on the assortment of ribs, chicken, and pulled pork. We'll each have dibs on a draft beer to wash down the eats, and relax as we listen to the sounds of a live jazz guitarist. And because good things should never end, our parting gift will be a jar of Deke's famous rub—just be careful not to gnaw off your hand.
