So our weekend consisted of a road trip down to Springfield, MO but our friends suggested that we stop by St. Louis on the way for some BBQ at Pappy's Smokehouse. We ordered a half slab of ribs with slaw and fried corn on the cob as well as beef brisket and pulled pork with fried corn on the cob and sweet potato fries. Yes, it was just the two of us and, yes, we ate every last bite. I say with full confidence and complete passion that this is THE best BBQ that Mark and I have ever eaten in our entire lives. We reminisce about this day by saying to each other, "Remember that one time we had Pappy's?" This is pork so good that you don't need sauce. We arrived when the place opened on a Thursday and by the time we got our food (maybe 5 min) there was a line to the back of the restaurant. By the time we finished our food and left there was a line wrapping outside the restaurant. Our original plan was to stop by for lunch on our way home but things didn't work out as planned and we were so disappointed that we decided not to talk about it on the way home.
If you ever find yourself near St. Louis, MO you MUST go to Pappy's Smokehouse!
