Big Daddy's BBQ MSP-still available?

I was just wondering if anyone knows if Big Daddy's BBQ is still available on Saturdays, or if the operation has shut down until better weather arrives.

Thank you.

  1. I wasn't in the area yesterday, but last weekend they were available - just selling inside.

    1. Drove by his place on Dale and University during the snowstorm on Saturday. The smokers were fired up in the parking lot.

      1. Finally made it out to try Big Daddy's BBQ...and I have to say I was very pleased. We got a half order of the pork ribs and a half order of the beef ribs and it was at least 4 lbs of food (3 lbs of it beef ribs, by the way). The pork ribs were definitely the best I've had in MSP. Thanks fellow Chowhounders, for all of your fine tips.

        1. I'm on their mailing list, and they sent a message that they will be closed on Sat. Feb 2nd, but will be open again on February 9th.

          1. Not only is Big D's open on Saturdays, now it's also open on Fridays (as I sit here at work, eating the most delicious ribs I've found in the TC's).

            Just like my Saint Louis-style (which is close to Memphis-style) I grew up with, even down to the two pieces of white sandwich bread!

            This is the down-home stuff transplants here are looking for. Not Ruldoph's (sp?). Not Lee's & Dee's - MUCH better than Lee's & Dee's.

            Fabulous. I'm very very happy.
