Q-BBQ's Smoked Corned Beef is hickory smoked for 22 hours, served on a fluffy brioche bun, then topped with homemade sweet cabbage with pears, and loaded with spicy horsey sauce.

According to Q-BBQ owner, Michael LaPidus, "This is the Q-version of the classic Irish dish -- hickory smoked quality corned beef with the complex inventive mouth-watering flavors our fans expect. It won't disappoint. I promise."

So far it has been a big year for Q-BBQ. They will open their highly anticipated 5th store in downtown Oak Park at the end of the month. This comes on the heels of their sold-out week long pop up restaurant at The Willis Tower. Just two months ago they opened their 4th store in Schererville, IN.
