Query: Getting good meat/bbq delivered to Buffalo Grove

waky | Jan 29, 200807:55 PM     6

Preamble: I haven't been to Chicago in 3 decades, and if I ask the person I'm sending this to, they'll insist on not getting anything (and they're the only Chi-towners I know).

So....
I've been looking to spend up to $100 to get some meals/food delivered to a couple who can't get around easily right now (surgeries for both).
Vegetable, fruit, sweet platters are all out of the question - we're talking about big time beef eaters. They've already gotten deli trays, so I was hoping for something special, like BBQ meats or specialty meats (like venison/buffalo).

Ideally, a place that delivers and has gift certificates would be best, so that the choice of what to get is up to the recipients.
The location to be delivered to is Buffalo Grove (/Arlington Heights), which may be far for some places.

I've done some searching (esp. on metromix), and Smoque BBQ looks promising (if they'll deliver). Most other well-rated BBQ joints either do not serve beef/brisket or don't seem to offer catering.

If anyone knows of other good places that are either local to Buffalo Grove or cater, including online caterers, please do mention them.

Many thanks
