Serious BBQ Pork is “Smokin’” Year-Round at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Lake Norman

hfr 3-15-15 2While spring across the Lake Norman region may signal the unofficial start of serious BBQ’n in backyards across Mooresville, Denver and beyond, here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse our “barbie” is smokin’ and always fired up year-round! Our separate, wood-fired smokehouse out back, known by the locals as the largest stand-alone BBQ smokehouse on Lake Norman and for many miles around, can produce as many an 18 pork shoulders on a single nine hour turn. Who said pigs can’t fly?

At HFR we love all things “pork-licious”, but somehow we missed out on celebrating a little extra for National Pork Month and National Pig Day. We even overlooked giving a shout-out to pork during The Year of the Pig on the Chinese calendar.

At Horsefeathers Roadhouse, it is always better late than never! To make up for lost time, our General Manager Donna is quoted as saying: “Let ’em eat pork!”

We have it going on with 4 pork-lovin’ ideas for making the most of your visits to infamous Horsefeathers Roadhouse LKN restaurant:

  • March WAS National Sauce Month: Oops, we were so busy with our Spring Jam last month that we missed this one, too! We’re extra saucy year-round, so how about going a bit “hawg wild” on your next visit to HFR with our smokehouse specialty Hawg Wings, either Kick Starter style or as a full-fledged dinner? Our smoked & grilled pork shanks are slathered in Horsefeathers BBQ sauce – just as sweet, spicy or tangy as you like ’em.
  • Takin’ sauce in a different direction: Have you tried our house-smoked and grilled Baby Back Ribs, glazed with BBQ? You can order either a half or full rack with your full-meal deal, or a Kick Starter Rib Basket with 3 smoked ribs and fries. We’ll keep you supplied with plenty of napkins!
  • Pork-saucin’ above and beyond shanks or ribs: Browse our HFR menu and you’ll find Pulled Pork and BBQ Sauce married nicely in our Kick Starter Horsefeather Chips, Tots, or Fries and also for our sandwich offering of Pork Tacos. Ditto on napkins cause you’ll need an ample supply!
  • Dislike makin’ bacon?: Here at HFR we cook up bacon specially for you and include it seven mouth-watering ways on our menu: On two of our hand-packed burgers (The Outlaw or the Bacon Cheddar); three of our sandwiches (The [Real] Boss Hog, Texas BLT, or Catawba Club), and two of our salads (House Salad or Chef’s Salad).

Delectable “go-withs” to complement any of our 17 pork-licious menu items include fries, chips, beans, slaw, or onion rings. Don’t forget to select a cold one or two from our 24 tap bar room! Whichever your choices for food and drink, we want you to go home smiling so wide that you just might have some ‘splainin’ to do when you get there!

Have you joined the 3,000+ members of our Horsefeathers Roadhouse KickBack Club, an awards program that just keeps on giving to our regular and every day clientele? There’s no time like the present to get started!
