The sipper is mostly light blue, except, of course, for Sam’s distinctive brow and eyes.

The top of his head and brow are removable for filling the sipper.

As you approach The American Adventure from the World Showcase, you’re welcomed by a large, lantern-lit archway which leads out onto the pit master patio. At the center, you have the impressive meat smoker, outfitted with a smoke shed and some additions for safety, like a built-in sprinkler system.

Also decorating this space are finishing touches of a western saddle and some large spoke wagon wheels to compliment the classic American theme. Out here, it’s mostly picnic-style wood bench seating, topped with blue umbrellas to provide some shade. At the front of the building, two walk-up bars serve patrons craft beers and twists on Southern classics, like a Tennessee Lemonade.

Each table, inside and out, is set with a roll of paper towels to help you manage the ample sauce servings.

The interior of the restaurant is full of Muppet cameos and references. There are also posters celebrating the different styles of barbecue sauce that guests can enjoy at the restaurant. Knick-knacks adorn the restaurant, including a pig-shaped trophy celebrating the “Appalachian Cook-Off Champion.” (Let’s hope Miss Piggy doesn’t stop by for a bite.) You can see a full video tour here.

There is a unique selection of condiments available as well, including Blue Ribbon Brisket Sauce, Sizzlin’ Pit Dry Rub Coalition Classic Smokehouse Sauce, Sweet Mustard Sauce, and Blue Ridge Vinegar League Vinegar Base Sauce (plus classic ketchup).

The menu includes entrées like Memphis Dry-rub Pork Ribs, Sliced Texas Beef Brisket Sandwich, a BBQ Burger (and the plant-based BBQ Jackfruit Burger), a Power Greens Salad, and more. Plus, it’s home to the amazing S’mores Brownie and Banana Pudding.
