A Chicago Pork & Whiskey Tour
Ribs, bacon, bourbon and beyond...
Smalls brines their pork in garlic, jalapeno, brown sugar, and Squirt, then smokes it for 12hrs, and serves it with green papaya slaw accompanied by five-spice frites and your choice of Sriracha mayo, bacon mustard, or banana ketchup.
Mixteco Grill’s pork torta is packed with black beans, poblano, red onions marinated in orange juice, chipotle mayonnaise, and habaneros. As Ken Griffey Jr. might say, “It’s like there’s a party in my mouth and everyone’s invited,” but probably not in one take.
