Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue takes its name from the venerable Sam Eagle, the Muppet known for his patriotism and strict sense of duty and honor. He takes all things seriously … and barbecue is certainly one of those things.

Regal Eagle Smokehouse will be the site for “Sam’s Centennial Cook-Off: A Salute to All Cook-Offs but Mostly Barbecue.” Guests will be the beneficiaries of this contest – described as “a competition fit for all patriots and pit masters” – as it brings in a variety of classic backyard barbecue selections from across the country to vie for Sam’s top honor.

Sam’s unmistakable visage will be part of the décor at this new restaurant.

He will also be incorporated into new Regal Eagle Smokehouse merchandise available exclusively at this tasty locale.

It doesn't sound like they are going in the direction of much more than decor, but would it be too much to hope for some sort of Dinner Show inside featuring Sam Eagle and friends.
