Barbecue: It’s not just for breakfast anymore.
I first stumbled across the smoke-stoked slogan in a Kansas City Barbeque Society cookbook back in the ’90s, and it has stuck with me like a bad earworm. But thanks to the Doughnut Lounge’s DL39, it’s easier than ever to eat barbecue for breakfast — or brunch, lunch or a late afternoon snack.
It took me a few minutes to crack the code (hey, I’m not a morning person). The DL39 is shorthand for a collaboration doughnut: Call it a savory-and-savory partnership between the trendy Westport doughnut emporium that likes to think outside the box and Q39, a new wave barbecue kingdom in the making that’s known for its competition-style brisket and burnt ends.
The DL39 is a play on the posh eggs Benedict, and I’m pretty much a fan of any Benedict.
