There's a Walt's on Colerain south of Banning Rd and in Harrison on New Haven Rd.

He would prefer Montgomery Inn because it's soft, mushy and is loaded with gloppy sweet sauce. I don't get why local tastes tend toward the juvenile but they do.
Because it tastes good and what people in Cincy are used to/ raised on.

Who says, "I shouldn't eat this because a kid would like it."

It's be like saying--lover of smoked meat--that you have animalistic tastes, all that meat.

I'd say they are crazier 'n' h***

Personally, I think the best smoked meat is beef short ribs. But, to be a real smoker, you have to have the tools. Two chamber smoker, plenty of ballast in the meat chamber, two heat probe thermometers, and a lot of well seasoned oak, maple and apple and a tried and true meat rub you can call your own. My son makes a second career out of it. Once you get hooked on smoked meat, cheese goes in there, fish, every now and then a smoked onion.

If you're eating Montgomery Inn you're eating meat.

I want to taste the meat, transformed, and without a caked on overlay of extraneous ingredients. That's what the smoking process imparts, it magnifies the flavor of the meat and adds new dimensions.

Take the sauce away from a Montgomery Inn rib and I almost guarantee that it's pretty bland - basically roasted pork. Smoking lets you enjoy that same meat without a bunch of sauce, if you wish.

As far as "tastes good", it's all relative. Montgomery Inn tastes good to some people and I really wonder if they have ever tried real BBQ.

If I want sweet I'll get ice cream.

I've only had Montgomery Inn twice, so I'm not defending their ribs. It was good but I've only had ribs a dozen times or so, I usually just order steaks.

Have you ever eaten at Walt's? If so, what's your opinion of their BBQ?

I've had Walt's Ky dozens of times. They are real slow roasted ribs, not boiled like Montgomery Inn. Dryer, more meaty and with really delicious flavor. Eat in the bar. They have some little booths. Great atmosphere.

By the way, for those who do ribs at home, there is a membrane on the bone side of the ribs that really needs to be removed before they are cooked. This is not very tasty and hard to separate from the rib meat between the bones when the ribs are done. Its a little more work, but well worth it.

I've been pretty disappointed with the Walt's on Colerain the last couple times I've eaten there. Had some chicken that was so overcooked as to be almost inedible, although they do serve a nice big baked potato topped with barbecue and cheese which is tasty and a good deal. I like Big Art's on Struble Rd. better than anyplace else in the area..although be warned, it's a dive, small dining room and can get very crowded. The best thing on their menu, better even than the excellent barbecue, is something called Chicken Colerain, an enormous boneless breast, lightly sauteed, served on rice, and smothered with a combination of mushrooms, onions and delicious herbs and spices. Their hours can be a little weird, so check before making the trip.

Dives are usually the best places to get that kind of food.

When BBQ Review first started up, it was in a converted gas station or something on Madison, past Whetsel near the Methodist church. The hours were irregular; you knew it was open when the big pig was rolled out to the curb.

And every once in awhile someone would haul a smoker out on the parking lot of what was once Richie's at Madison and Whetsel. That was some good stuff, too, but very irregular.

From what I've had here, Walts is a zillion trillion times better than Mont Inn. But that doesn't mean I think Walts is all that. I prefer Oklahoma Joes or Authur Bryants in Kansas City or none at all.
