Behind the glass curtain at this Park Manor carryout spot, Arkansas native Mack Sevier smokes some of the best stuff in town. Go for the rib tips and hot links combo: The rib tips are smoky, extremely juicy, meatier than elsewhere in town and crisp around the edges; the hot links are not for the heat-phobic, with searing bits of red chili and smoky, porky, sage-packed flavor—like a spicy breakfast sausage. Opt for the mild sauce unless you’re prepared for a scorcher, and request extra napkins if you want to save your car seats.
