Family-friendly restaurant known for its Chicago-style ribs.
A delicious-smelling haze wafts across George's parking lot.

There's just one thing missing: smoke. George openly admits that he uses only lump charcoal—no wood—for the following reason: "Logs got worms and insects. I don't want to bring 'em in." —Mike Sula
