Hard to say... costovertebral, costotransverse, sternocostal, costochondral, interchondral... not that the joint is the thang.

Does anyone know of a place that serves ham brownies? They are the ham version of burnt ends and I haven't seen them on a BBQ menu for so long.

Hickory Hut in salina, Guys and Mae's and The Pizza parlor in Topeka, Ok Joe's in KC. Never liked Gates or Bryants or Dickey's too greasy. Famous Dave's is good, but tastes the same where ever you at nation wide

Anyone know if/when that Vermont Street place is reopening? How long does it take to move a couple of chairs and tables around. That sign has been up for months. Who is the dipstick who is in charge of that remodel.

Roy's Pit BBQ in Hutch is awesome. Love OK Joe's in the gas station. In Lawrence, Biemer's is probably best, but their portions are not in line with their prices.

"Isn't that what Hugo Chávez served Sean Penn for dinner?"

A vegetarian would never eat asado. So, no.

Grandaddy's is probably the best in Lawrence in terms of ribs. The ribs are so good you don't really need the sauce but I always pour it on! Great baked beans too. Haven't been to Oklahoma Joe's yet but I intend to journey there :)

Cajun Coyote

INGREDIENTS: 2 cups vegetable oil 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning 2 tablespoons dried Italian-style seasoning 2 tablespoons lemon pepper garlic powder to taste 2lbs of fresh thawed coyote meat - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large shallow dish, mix the oil, Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and lemon pepper. Place the coyote meat in the dish, and turn to coat with the mixture. Cover, and refrigerate for 1/2 hour.
  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Drain coyote, and discard marinade. Place coyote on hot grill and cook for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear.

I spent the summer in the Douglas County Hotel and ended up getting farmed out to Jefferson County for 3 weeks. They served "hamburgers" and "meatloaf" sometimes. I'm not a picky eater but I damn near yakked. I guarantee it wasn't beef, pork, chicken, turkey, or fish. Considering where I was I'm seriously thinking horse or coyote. Then again, the people working there looked straight out of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" so........

"Pass?" - autie

There is just no place that does decent asado around here.

McDonald's but only when The McRib is made.

Pass?

Ronaldo, did you ever accurately determine the internal temperature desired for country style ribs?

Keep waiting for the Sound Off from today's paper to appear online, it would produce some fun comments.

Joint? If it has AC, indoor facilities, and floors that can be cleaned, it ain't a joint.

Grandaddy"s. They sell barbeque and joints. And to think Chad used to be my source. Wow!

My brother in law's is pretty good. But I think autie's is a little better. As long as you don't mind the cook swillin scotch and telling wild stories.

Man, I'm drooling here, more than normal anyway. Not gonna make it through the day without some barbecue.

Dare I say it? I had a good meal at that famous guy's place the last time I was there.

Gates is so hit and miss anymore it isn't worth going to. It is nothing more than a chain. Ollie overextended himself.

Oklahoma Joes. K and M. Rosedale. Hell, LCs is probably the best. It doesn't have some stupid history to battle with. OK Joe's backlash has already begun just because it got nationally famous. I've never had anything less than a fantastic meal there.

Guy & Mae's ribs are fall off he bone great. And the sauce is awesome!!

Within a radius of 100 miles from Lawrence, Jack Stack gets the nod from me. The best in the country is City Market in Luling, Texas.

Much like the question of "what's your favorite Mexican restaurant", my answer would be "anything not in Lawrence". This town is awesome for a lot of reasons; food is not one of them

The joint operating out of the back of the Pool Room is outstanding. Hope they find a more visible spot.

And Grandaddy's "afro-sausages" are crazy good.

'Burg, long time favorite; but you'd also LOVE Leroy's in Pomona...the guy cooked at 'Burg for many years til opening his own place. BBQ is really good, they have a lot more side dishes too. We B Smokin' at the Miami County Airport kicks some major BBQ butt, too! Lot of great places around for Q. BB's Lawnside in KCMO for atmosphere. :)

On the Lawrence BBQ front, it's going to be interesting watching the latest failed venture at the SE corner of 10th and Mass. Some people never learn or the trying the same thing repeatedly but expecting different results. Take your pick. I wonder if the BBQ will taste like fish too. I guess slum lords don't make good restaurant owners.

My own. Guy n Maes. Grandaddys. OK Joes. In that order.

I don''t eat BBQ very often. I haven't had ribs in at least 20 years. I'm more of a burnt end guy. Arthur Bryant's has a good, but interesting sauce. I've only been to their original location in KC.

......."I can smoke meat better than any "Q" joint around. Moist, tender, perfect smoke ring every time. Ask anybody who has ever had it, they prefer mine over everybodies, no joke."

Umm.......well...Uh...Ok. .....please do not elaborate. Your business, not mine.

Just wanted to run this one by you.

http://www.staged.com/video?v=q0eb

Have done some of my own calculations after smoking with a BBQ'r. Wait, I don't smoke. Must have been something about me saying I am....... FLIP!....

Back to the point. I think it may break a collar bone and kill - demolish- at under 300 yards. Is my math off?

Gran-Daddy's Barbeque! I guess it is closed now? Maybe moving again. Love the sauce - a lot of pep.

PhilChiles 1 year, 8 months ago

Here's a fun thing to do. Go to Yelp, and look up the Gates BBQ reviews, starting with the worst. People are just SHOCKED that anyone could be rude to them at a restaurant. Personally, my vote is for Pappy's Place in Springfield, or Biggs if I'm in Lawrence.

Any 1 of the three smokers in my backyard. I can smoke meat better than any "Q" joint around. Moist, tender, perfect smoke ring every time. Ask anybody who has ever had it, they prefer mine over everybodies, no joke.

Oklahoma Joe's for Ribs, Pulled Pork, Fries

Jack Stack for Brisket, Beans, Cole Slaw

Arthur Bryant's for Sausage

In Lawrence, I like Beimer's the best, but their portions are lacking.

The original Smokestack. Loved going out to eat at the Martin City location.

Next would be Arthur Bryant's.

And then there was a place called Keegan's that was in Martin City too. They had awesome burnt ends and tasty brownies.

Phil Minkin 1 year, 8 months ago

Rosedale for ribs, Gates for chicken and Bryants for beef and pork.
