Any time is the right for barbecue, but this weekend is particularly opportune. Q in the Lou returns, bringing live music and a mountain of barbecue to Soldiers Memorial downtown (Fourteenth and Chestnut streets; www.qinthelou.com). This year's pitmasters include Mike Emerson (Pappy's) and Mike Johnson (Sugarfire Smoke House), Brad and Brook Orrison (the Shed in Ocean City, Mississippi), Carey Bringle of Nashville's Pig Leg Porker and Big Moe Cason from Des Moines' Ponderosa BBQ Company. They'll be serving it up from 4 to 10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday (September 23 to 25). All you have to do is show up (admission is free) and buy the one (or six) that smell the best. There's also a VIP option ($75) that lets you skip lines and gets you an open bar, barbecue sample and entrance to the VIP lounge. Locash, Pretty Little Empire and Cracker all perform throughout the festival.
