Ron Brooks and his wife, Louella, run a Louisiana barbecue restaurant out of their home in suburban Aurora from Friday through Sunday, where they serve up twelve-hour smoked meats, some of the best sides in town — like a kicked-up creamed corn called maque choux — and a sampling of Cajun specialties, from gumbo to alligator "wings." Enjoy the Brookses' Bayou hospitality or call for catering to have your event brimming with deeply smoky pork ribs and a shortened menu from the home base.
