Going to St. Louis at the end of April for three days. Anyone have suggestions for some real good Saint Louis Bar B Que?

    I'll have to recommend a new spot across the river, about 12 miles away from the Arch being 17th St BBQ in O'Fallon/ They just opened this new location and their Q is top notch. All apple wood smoked. They have been winners in Memphis a number of times. My fav is the super sampler...about $20 of finger lickin' goodness that I can barely finish. http://www.17thstreetbarbecue.com/#
    Here's a review: http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/ente...
    The new address is: 1711 W. Highway 50, O'Fallon

    Hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sundays

    Information: 618-622-1717

      Pennie's BBQ on Reavis Barracks is the best place I have found, big thick pork steaks dripping in sauce. with a couple of sides. They butcher their own meat so nothing is on the skimpy side. Always are packed but worth the wait.

          Flaming Pig in Clayton. Yeah I know, incongruous having BBQ in Clayton, but this place is awesome. East of World News on Forsyth.

            I assume you're referring to Lampert's Plush Pig http://www.plushpigbbq.com/. Haven't been, but have heard good things.

              My bad. You are correct. The guy who owns it is passionate about his BBQ. He was talking about making a decent corned beef last time I was there.

                You were probably flashing back to the late, not lamented, Flaming Pit, a St. Louis restaurant of yesteryear.

                  Whatever happened to the Flaming Pits? I had forgotten about them. The onl y thing I remember is they made kicker martinis.

                    The one on Chippewa (or was it Hampton) closed approximately 8 years ago. They had some very good steaks.
