Learn how to make Twin Smokers BBQ’s balanced, creamy coleslaw


From the menu … Twin Smokers BBQ, 300 Marietta St. NW., Atlanta. 404-698-4707. twinsmokersbbq.com

I was recently at Twin Smokers BBQ with another foodie friend and was taken by surprise at how delicious their coleslaw was. As a Southerner I feel like I have had all kinds of coleslaw but this one fell right into the perfect zone of creamy, tangy, sweet, but not overly so. It was so well balanced. However, what prompted me to write is that there was something else, some extra oomph. Whether herb or seasoning blend, it made for some excellent coleslaw. I would love to know what took it that extra step. — Jeffrey Willis, Atlanta

The folks at Twin Smokers BBQ were happy to share the recipe. Was it the green onion that intrigued Willis or the parsley? Maybe it’s the combination of Duke’s mayonnaise with onion and garlic?

Fruity, chilled gazpacho hits the spot at this Atlanta chain

If gazpacho is not firmly planted in your rotation of summer meal staples, it should be.
