The grilling and barbecue experts at Famous Dave's are here to answer your questions.
Famous Dave's is practically a household name in the Twin Cities and a byword for good ribs. But how many of you know that when founder Dave Anderson decided to branch out from his Hayward, Wisconsin restaurant, he chose Southwest Minneapolis' Linden Hills neighborhood? That restaurant, humbly housed in a former gas station, was Anderson's stepping stone to greatness. In honor of the nation's 236th birthday this week, we've asked the fine folks at the Southwest Minneapolis Famous Dave's to be this week's Patch Pro. They'll be answering all your questions in the comment stream below about what they do best, grilling and barbecuing. They'll be on hand through Friday, July 13. Ask away!
You don't have to go all the way to Kansas City for a great rack of ribs, or the Bayou for brisket. Here's a behind the scenes look with "Order Up" at some sweet BBQ here in the Twin Cities suburbs.
Wild Boar opened just after St. Patrick's Day and has been dishing out ribs, pulled pork and other foods at a breakneck pace ever since. Using a kitchen not more than three people deep, Chef Dave Donner has crafted a menu of flavors unique to Main Street. Chef Donner takes a personal, creative approach to everything that happens in his kitchen and on the floor. He takes particular pride in the two sauces which give a distinct taste to the Sassy Sow, the most popular sandwich on their menu. While he doesn't give a complete recipe, he's eager to share some of the ingredients that make them so special.
