Yes, you heard that correctly. According to SMU's newspaper The Daily Campus, Maple & Motor owner/"burger nazi" Jack Perkins' new Design District barbecue spot will feature "a trough-style urinal" that's been "re-imagined as a barbeque [sp] sauce- holding vestibule". As Perkins says, "Fucking genius."
According to the piece, Slow Bone should debut any day now in the old BW's BBQ spot across the street from lunch hotspot Off-Site Kitchen. Service will be "cafeteria-style, serving up brisket, sausage, and the like alongside hot and fresh vegetable side dishes", several of which will be vegetarian-friendly.
Perkins touts a "fast and hot" method for smoking brisket, and while that may be in direct contrast to the low-and-slow philosophy many other pitmasters abide by, it seems to work just fine for Perkins — he emerged victorious in the brisket competition at last November's charitable meatstravaganza, MeatFight.
