Hey guy, do you know what I miss most about Indy? IMO, they have the best barbeque I've ever had. My favorites were Zeb's and Barbeque Heaven (BH is HOT!!). Like BBQ? Ever tried either of those places? I'll bet there are many others, just not that adventurous.

If you like barbeque, you need to go to Kansas City. They have THE best barbeque restaurants IMO.

Yes I have Brian! But then I'm a master chef to my neighbours when it comes to BBQ. I normally stay home and do the real deal myself!

About 6 weeks ago they had a BBQ festival down at the White River State Park downtown and that was perdy darn good for sampling varieties for around the area. We dropped about $200 and brought home a mess. For 4 days of nothing but BBQ, I was in Heaven! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Also if your ever down in NC and or SC way you have got to try Carolina style BBQ. That's some awsome sheet too! (but different) http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

OK now that I'm drooling all over myself... I got the crave!!! Arrggg! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/redface.gif)p

What I like about the Indy bbq places is that they like the sauce. They have great sauce and put alot on. The Memphis bbq turned me off, not enough sauce.

No good bbq in Maryland either.

Texas had excellent bbq, but I lived there too long ago to compare it to Indy.

I make good bbq also. The sauce at Zebs is the best I have had. Their ribs were great.

The only time I was in NC, I couldn't find a bbq place easily. Ate at a steakhouse.

(I bet California has terrible bbq http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif)

By the way, where do you live Greebe?

Your region sounds familiar, but it's been a while. Is that up by Lilly?

I used to work at Reilly Chemicals (Reilly Tar) over by International Harvester (I think).

Just out of curiosity, were you ever involved with the AMUG? (Amiga User Group) If you were, you must have known a friend of mine name of Greg Chaney. Used to work with him. Big geek. Very knowledgable.

I'll make a point of eating in KC during one of my trips west. Used to go by there often going from Chicago to Texas.

6th October 2000, 19:25
I'm on the far northside about a mile south of Carmel. Lilly is just south of downtown (bout 10 miles south of me). I moved here about 5 years ago from NC. Originally from Ohio 120 miles due east (Dayton area).

Haven't been involved with outside computer geeks that much due to my son (he's handicapped, can't do for himself at all).

Would Greg live in Greenwood?

7th October 2000, 08:55
Greebe, your originally from Dayton? Pardon me while I stear this conversation in a different direction for a moment then, do you know of Greater's Ice Cream? Cincinnati and Dayton speciality! The best Ice Cream in the world, especially the Mint Chip! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

Sigh, I miss Cinci. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif I miss Greater's Ice Cream and I miss Cincinnati style chili.

I geuss I'll just have to force my dad to bring me some of both when he comes out for Thanksgiving. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

who is realizing that it's much to early in the day to be thinking about ice cream. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

As a matter of fact, yes, I think he did live in Greenwood.

Miss the golf there also. Used to play at Hoosier Links every weekend and in the city twice a week after work (forgot the name of the course). Very cheap and not hard to get a tee time.

By the way, have you kept up with the CFC thread? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

8th October 2000, 17:41
Oh yeah http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I just might give Greg a call, anything special I should say?

I live in the BBQ capitol of the world! Kansas City! The place that BBQ's so much that there is a giant plume of smoke rising from Arrowhead stadium before every Chiefs games (US Football). The place that has more BBQ resturants than McDonalds. The place that has a BBQ competition every other week in the Summer time.

Hmmmmm...what are my favorites (in case anyone is ever out this way):

Best Beef: KC Masterpiece
Best Pork: Jack Stack
Best Sandwich's and Old Style Ribs: Arthur Bryant's
Best BBQ Beans: Jake's Eat it n' Beat it
Best Bang for the Buck: Hayward's
Best competitions: The American Royal and the Lenaxa BBQ Cook Off

But the best BBQ I have ever had was made by one of my friend's fathers. He took first place in the American Royal (biggest BBQ compeition there is) in BBQ'ed Lamb one year. It used to be called Hog's Breath, but he changed it. This guys should open a resturant it's so good.


8th October 2000, 19:38
Jammy, I had a feeling you were from around there abouts. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

KC Masterpiece, is that like the people who make the sauce commercially? Does it taste the same as the bottled stuff?

8th October 2000, 19:42
How many are into wings, Buffalo Wings? Ever had Chiefs from Greenville SC?

8th October 2000, 20:21
KC Masterpiece is a GREAT place to eat. Their barbeque beef is the best. Their service is even better. You don't go through your meal with your beverage empty once. No napkins here, folks. Try towels. Yes, linen like you use to dry off with. I used to eat there all the time when I lived there. I plan on going back soon http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif


8th October 2000, 20:27
BTW, Jammrock, whereabouts in KC do you live? I used to live in OP for a while then moved closer to the school in KC, MO. I believe the address in KC, MO was on 95th street at a complex called "Bannister Gardens".


8th October 2000, 21:30
Joel nuke this thread I am sloobering all over my keyboard. Its not fair! AAHAHAHAH
Rack and a half with some wings please!

BTW I wrote the best song called: Chicken Wings in my past life!

Has anyone had wings in Buffalo?

Tell him I said HI and see how he's doing. Tell him I recommend he be a regular on the MURC forums. I'm sure he's got opinions that matter. Tell him it's the year 2000 and it's time to throw away his Amiga 500.

Tell him I miss the guys at Reilly

Brian, I would have, but by the time you posted it was 11pm here. I give him a call tonight. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Me wife is a Wing fanatic and has taste tested wings from abroad. Claims I make the best (pick a kind, any kind!). Just if you ask for nuclear, you better be ready for just that! I can't handle them nowdays http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif, but will make some special for her from my normal batch. Beer, blue cheese dressing (either homemade or T.

As a matter of fact, I was referring to Skyline, but apparently you don't appreciate the finer things in life. j/k http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif (that obviously isn't true anyway since you appreciate the excelence Greater's, drool, I could go for a Greater's Chocolate Mint soda about now http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif )

They aren't the only Cinci style chili though. There was one other good one, Empress. They were a much smaller chain but they made some damn fine chili. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif The spicy side of Cinci chili, good stuff. Makeing chili from flavor packets was pretty good stuff too. I think Kroger made those. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

Did you ever eat at the Montgomery inn? They had some mighty fine BBQ. Not the same as KC, or SC or anything else I'm sure, but very good nonetheless. Sort of a sweeter BBQ with are strong honey taste to it. I've got a bottle of the stuff at home that my dad brought me this summer. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif I think I may have to put some of that to use tonight.


9th October 2000, 13:05
Ian, If one grewup on it (we have Skyline Chili stores here in Indy now) then that's just about the only way one could tolerate that ick!!!. Whom in there right mind would put cinnamon in chili is sick! ack!

Sorry http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

My fathers favorite thing to make was chili, (and BBQ and Pizza and... well as he called it "Good Grungy Food" http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif he had it down to a science and if you had tried it, you would think the same.

They had a Montgomery Inn here but it went out of business. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif That's a real shame too it's very good. But Indy has an already established base of many fine non sweet Rib joints that have satisfied the masses for eons. It was located in a bueatiful location overlooking a Lake on the NE corner of town just off Allisonville Rd.

Still it was a shame they had to go, varity is always good for the soul. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

There was a good deli in Indy I used to like to eat at. I don't remember it's name, but it was a large cafeteria style kosher deli. Probably not many of them. Great corned beef and cabbage. Don't get any corned beef and cabbage lately either.

LOL! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif It's a good thing you don't know about the other important ingredient then. No I'm not joking either, there is something else but you'll just think I'm even crazier if I tell you what it is. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif (not that you don't think I'm crazy already http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif )

Heh, well, we can always agree on Greater's anyway. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Just Drooling, umm Passing by....LOL

A good friend of mine for the past 20 or so years has the best BBQ place in Albuquerque. He has meat smoking down to a science. His current blend is Oak, Hickory, Pecan and Apple wood. His homemade sauce is served on the side and has original and Habanero versions.
His Baby backs are the best I've had. He has created his own "Rub" for the ribbs and other meats which is applied before smoking.

When customers ask what wood he uses for smoking he tells them Hollywood, Dagwood and Peckerwood http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif
