Worth the trip : Brisket at Smoque BBQ 3800 N. Pulaski Road 773-545-7427 You could say that Smoque, an Irving Park barbecue restaurant that's one of Chicago's best, all started with a very large Texan. Ten years or so before Smoque was even a dream of chef Barry Sorkin and his partners Mike McDermott, Chris Hendrickson and Al Sherman, Sorkin and a buddy from Texas visited the now-defunct barbecue spot Merle's in Evanston, Ill. Sorkin's buddy asked Merle's if they had brisket.

Norman Reedus never wanted Daryl Dixon, the redneck he plays in AMC's "The Walking Dead," to be a younger version of Daryl's racist brother, Merle. He's definitely showing more sides of Daryl in Season 2 of the hit series, making the fan favorite both tender and tough. He's still a loner, but he's slowly opening up to individuals in the group. He's also become a real hero in the face of the zombie apocalypse. While other members of his group are ready to hang up the search for young Sophia, Daryl remains committed to finding Carol's daughter - most likely because he...

Fans of AMC's “The Walking Dead” were thrilled this summer when the Season 2 trailer hit San Diego Comic-Con and the web. It began with dozens of hungry zombies shuffling after Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), who stumbles just as the flesh eaters are reaching out to lunch on him. Believe it or not, the dramatic scene has been cut from the 90-minute Season 2 premiere ( 8 p.m. Oct. 16, AMC; 3.5 stars ) for less flashy but brilliant-in-their-own-way moments. How many TV shows can dump such a chilling chase yet still send shivers up your spine?

I spent last week catching rides across the Midwest, from Chicago to Columbus to Cleveland to my hometown to Columbus to St. Louis back to Chicago, and no, I'm not ashamed that despite being a cool, sophisticated, cosmopolitan, urbanite, refined Renaissance-ish city-dweller, I love Bob Evans, and I eat there every time I'm back in Ohio. First of all, you must acknowledge something about driving on Midwestern Interstate highways like I-70 or I-55, which is that your only food options are factory-processed meat accompanied by some type of potatoes chits fried in...

Fans of AMC's "The Walking Dead" have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of a major villain from Robert Kirkman's graphic novels. On Sunday, the Governor finally makes his debut, but don't expect a mustache-twirling, cartoonish baddie. "He's quite complex," actor David Morrissey told me outside the press room at San Diego Comic Con in July. "Tough times call for tough decisions and tough people, and he's a tough one. He's building a secure community that has certain rules and he'll enforce them.
