Is it heresy to suggest that the best thing in a barbecue restaurant isn’t a cut of meat? That might be the case at Sweet Cheeks Q in the Fenway, where they serve the biscuits in a bucket because they know you’re going to want more than one. Having said that, the meats are good too (go with the ribs) and Sweet Cheeks should be in your pre-Sox rotation.
