Food News and Specials: Early December Edition Part 1

We've asked area restaurants to tell us about their upcoming Christmas and Holiday events and specials. Here's what's happening at Mr. P's Mountain Smokehouse and Shelby's Kitchen Therapy.

From Shelby:

We’ll be at the underground food bazaar with all kinds of spicy and bacon-y goodies like cranberry chipotle relish, homemade chipotle mustard, spiked bacon jam and of course Mr. P’s sauces:  house, sweet and roasted red pepper and garlic. 

We’ll also have boxes of edible gifts like bacon turtles with homemade caramel, bacon brittle, spicy cinnamon peanut brittle.  There are more treats in the works, we’ll keep our Facebook page updated with the offerings.  Everything will also be available at the restaurant through the month of December. 

We will be open on Christmas Eve only for catering order pick ups, so if you haven’t ordered your smoked turkey, beef tenderloin, or smoked salmon, now is the time!  Other good pre-order items are any gluten-free desserts or sides you might want.  We’ll be closed Christmas Day. 

Our featured sandwich for December is the ultimate grilled pork & cheese; grilled Texas toast stuffed with pulled pork, smoked provolone, sharp cheddar and topped with spiked bacon jam, served with your choice of sandwich sides for $10.
