View Full Version : BBQ in Iowa?

I am going to be in Iowa on a business trip in August. Are there any BBQ joints worth visiting?

Don't know about 'cue joints, but after reading the Maid-Rite/Loose Meat threads, I would make a point of finding a Maid-Rite while in Iowa. :mrgreen:

Word is that Darren of Smokin Clones recently opened up a place in Des Moines.

Clones place is in Des Moines. I can't remember the name of it. Also, I think Mike at Hawgeyes still cooks at his shop in Ankeny during the summer months, but you may want to double check.

Nope...the Hawgeyes joint closed last year...FARK! Clone & Shad ( A Boy & His BBQ ) opened up this month on the north side of DSM. Where in Iowa are you going to be & when??? If I can help.........
