I forgot to enter this last night, due to various reasons, but hit up Smokey’s in East Bethel (technically Wyoming?). 1/3 rack of ribs, fresh…good God, they are as excellent as I remember them. Dry rub, they do serve sauce on the side, but meh on that.

I was having a convo with a fellow patron, they had asked to borrow my menu when I was done (we were sitting on the rail), I mentioned I only hit this place once, maybe twice a year. They asked where I was coming from. And it was a jaw-drop reaction. Apparently, word got to the bartender:

“Did you like everything? I heard you’re from out of town….?”

Me: “Um……….yeah, I suppose. Minnetonka.”

“HOLY SH*. Really?”

Me: Yeah, the food’s worth it. It’s only about 45 minutes, no biggie.

They honestly were astounded that people drive that long for good food.

So what would they say when us from the Apple Valley stop by? We went once last summer, and had we been smart also would have had dinner there yesterday. :mrgreen:

Probably a good thing however as we saved room to pig out on D Spot wings today. 🤤
