Wondering about opinions on barbecue ribs in the metro. I had Market Barbecue tonight, and it was like pub grub. I think the best I've had came from Big Daddy's on University, Lee's and Dee's on Victor near Selby, and Famous Dave's in Calhoun Square. It's very much an individual preference sort of thing, but I wonder about other people's preference. My amateur diagnosis of the Market BBQ meal was it was cooked too high and short. Barbecue is best done low and slow.

Have you tried Q-fanatic in Champlain? I haven't tried their ribs but everything else I've tried has been great. Pepper vodka BBQ sauce FTW.

I agree. Q's makes exceptionally good BBQ. But I'm not so sure Famous Dave's can be beat (exclusively with the St. Louis style ribs).

Q's has a lunch special with a sandwich, chips and a pop for $7. Cheaper than the Subway two doors down! They are in a strip mall on the border of Anoka and Champlin (169). They have some huge "portable" outdoor smokers. It's the best smelling parking lot in the North Metro!

My favorite is Ted's Cook's 19th Hole on 38th just west of Hiathatha. Their ribs are smoked, never partially boiled like most places. It's no frills, carry out only, and closed on Mondays. Even if you're not nearby, it's well worth the trip.

Received this message from a friend in your area recently on the subject of good BBQ in the Twin Cities.

"Are you still into good barbeque? If so, when you come to St. Paul you absolutely HAVE TO try Pastor Hamilton's BBQ. It's right next to his little storefront church, St. John's Church of God in Christ, at 1150 7th St. It's only open 11A-8P or so Th-Sat, but it's fantastic. I'll pick up a couple bottles of his sauce for you as a preview if you'd like."

Must be good.

Here's another vote for Ted Cook's 19th Hole BBQ. Don't forget to pick up an order of collard greens while you're there too.

That place is pretty good. Been there a handful of times. Super small place, so best to carry out. I would also throw in Baker's Ribs in Eden Prairie. Lot of the other suggestions were also good.
