Hit up Back Channel Brewing today, they had Fireman's BBQ food truck out there...wow.

I got the smokehouse pulled pork sandwich (pulled pork, bacon, cheddar cheese, bourbon sauce, crispy onions). The bun was in there somewhere. Quite excellent, highly recommend. The quality and quantity is impressive.

I wonder how the lawsuits between the franchisee and the company played into this. It has been an ugly marriage between them for years.

Went to Lat 14 for our anniversary last night. It’s just east of 169 on Hwy 55 and focused on SE Asian food

Everything we tried was excellent. They also served Lumpia which excites me because an old family friend is Filipino and always used to make it.

There aren’t a lot of unique and non chain places to eat in the west metro but I’d highly recommend trying it out. Just make a reservation as it was packed given it was a Tuesday night

Agreed! Yeah, been there recently for lunch and dinner. Both fabulous and yes, always packed and need reservations. The drinks are good and the fusion of the flavors are good. Her other restaurant in Brooklyn Park is one of our favorites. Highly recommend it!

Yeah, off 252. Lat14 opened in Feb/March and replaced a Perkins. Nice to have a non chain in the area. And the cocktails and bar Are great

I'll have to try Lat14 then. I definitely like Lemongrass. I'll still hit Lemongrass more often, since it's only a few blocks from my house, but given how good the food is there, I'll certainly drop in at Lat14 sometime.

No joke my buddies and I figured out (roughly) how much we spent there one summer...they should have named a booth after us we gave them so much money! The best was there was only 3 people who worked overnights...one loved us, one hated us and one was like a year younger than us and her brother was a friend of ours so we hit on her constantly! And at least once a week we would order a milkshake just to hear the excuse they would give us as since they never wanted to make one late at night :D

My wife and daughter went to the Dells over the weekend and brought home a chocolate dipped Jalapeño pepper.

This thing Can be added to the small list of foods that chocolate doesn’t enhance the taste of. I took one bite and gave it to my wife to eat

Yup. Love the smell of coconut. Love coconut sauce in Thai food. Love me a rich pina colada. But coconut itself? Yuck.
It's a texture thing. Plus ever since I was little, shredded coconut looks like freshly clipped toenail shards. It's a visual I've never shaken. And now, neither will you! Sorry :wink:

Pastrami is underrated. There is a Pastrami Burger at Crossroads Deli in Minnetonka. Burger topped with pastrami. It's amazing.

Visited the Revival location at Keg & Case over the weekend. My god, they have some incredible pastrami. Out of this world good.
It's a life changing sandwich.
He let me have a bite. First time I regretted ordering brisket. The brisket is ridiculously good, but that pastrami... good grief.

It really is.

I wanted the bacon. Vetoed by the Mrs. I gave pulling a childish fit over it a go, she didn't go for it. I knew I picked her for a reason.

I will have that bacon, though. Someday.

Plus the sandwiches are huge!!

Last time I went for lunch I could only eat half of the Pastrami so I brought the other half back for YE so he could try it. You should have seen his eyes light up! Made his day.

He’s working at Mother Mining and we are in the same building so I was a nice guy. For once. 😀

Nothing springs to mind. It's not fine dining, but solid food from my recollection, been a few years. Great spot for groups to gather.

I didn’t have their style of pizza but the St Louis style BBQ was nothing to write home about. It wasn’t awful but when the whole style is entirely dependent on sauce you’re not starting off well

I will say though having it in a jail cell (restaurant was a converted police station) was pretty neat

If you're in St. Louis and craving BBQ, do yourself a favor and drive either 3.5 hours west or 4 hours south. Get serious about it.

Holy f*** this is an awful opinion. Memphis dry rub style is by far the superior for ribs.

Texas rules brisket.

I prefer KC style, even when I make my own. I glaze ribs with sauce for the last 45 minutes of smoking.

I ate at Rendevouz in Memphis and was not impressed at all. They tried to do too much with the rub.

I don't prefer a "style" of BBQ, I prefer good BBQ. Plain and simple. Sometimes I might be in the mood for a certain flavor, I can do that with a rub or a sauce. My bucket list includes Franklin BBQ in Austin TX.

Also, you can get perfectly good BBQ in Minnesota/ND, even up against any other area of the country, it doesn't matter where it is cooked, its the style. I mean, there isn't anything in the air over Texas that makes their brisket better than you can get anywhere else.

One peeve I have with BBQ and I know the reasoning, but you can almost never get burnt ends anywhere north of KC it seems. Yeah, people try and fake them with a roast or whatever, but all of these places that just serve the flat...what are they doing with the point/ends? Keeping them for themselves?

It takes longer to smoke the point and flat together and it’s more work to separate them out mid way through smoking to dick around to get the true burnt ends.

Around here it’s difficult to even find a brisket with the point and flat together to attempt it on a backyard smoker.

Costco has them.

I separate mine before I even put it on the smoker. Works really well and I can still get my burnt ends.

I don't prefer a "style" of BBQ, I prefer good BBQ. Plain and simple. Sometimes I might be in the mood for a certain flavor, I can do that with a rub or a sauce. My bucket list includes Franklin BBQ in Austin TX.

Also, you can get perfectly good BBQ in Minnesota/ND, even up against any other area of the country, it doesn't matter where it is cooked, its the style. I mean, there isn't anything in the air over Texas that makes their brisket better than you can get anywhere else.

One peeve I have with BBQ and I know the reasoning, but you can almost never get burnt ends anywhere north of KC it seems. Yeah, people try and fake them with a roast or whatever, but all of these places that just serve the flat...what are they doing with the point/ends? Keeping them for themselves?
It takes longer to smoke the point and flat together and it’s more work to separate them out mid way through smoking to dick around to get the true burnt ends.

Around here it’s difficult to even find a brisket with the point and flat together to attempt it on a backyard smoker.
Costco has them.

I separate mine before I even put it on the smoker. Works really well and I can still get my burnt ends.
The costco business center usually has a great selection of choice and prime briskets to pick through. I see bbq food trucks there buying them as well.

Don't care what anyone says, we're in Manila today and enjoying BWW and a rare opportunity for me to have a craft beer. We got authentic Spanish and Turkish yesterday, seafood on the bay tonight and Spanish again tomorrow so I don't feel guilty. 😎

Had Fireman's BBQ Food truck today. Had the Texas Steer "Sandwich"
Brisket, Bacon, Holy Smokes Sauce, Crispy Onions, Jalapeno, and Jalapeno Cheese.

I didn't bother trying to eat it as a sandwich. Just grabbed a knife and a fork. Delicious.

Went to Black Sheep on Eat Street last night. All three pizzas were outstanding. Agree with Barstool saying the best of the Cities.

I thought it was very good but not tops.

1. Broadway Richfield Meat Lovers (Richfield only. Hate on this opinion but it has the best overall flavor around.)
2. Ninos Maplewood (order a whole pizza so it's made for you and not ready by the slice)
T3. Big River
T3. Red Wagon
5. Black Sheep
T6. Blaze in SLP when you get a good worker making it. Underrated.
T6. Lola (consistency has been an issue)

Haven't had Young Joni but figure it's like Lola.
