Surprise in Minnetonka, MN
 
I had the most pleasant surprise today. I had a meeting this afternoon held at a local sandwich shop. Hams Sandwich Shop at 14200-P Wayzata Blvd,
Minnetonka, Minnesota. I walked in to a delightful smoke aroma. I looked at the menu and saw a Texas Brisket sandwich and figured that would be the best indicator of what the BBQ was like. Heaven, nice smoke ring, pull apart tender with what was described as spicy sauce on the side. The brisket is smoked on site in what I was told was a Traeger pellet smoker, but didn't look like any I've seen. I asked to see it. It was 24"x24"x30"high (estimate) with a black finish. They also have pastrami on the menu which I will try when I go back.

That sure is a great find. So far, I've found nothing noteworthy like that around these parts.

A co-worker of mine HIGHLY recommends "Lone Spur Grill and Bar" in Minnetonka. Any comments or reviews of this Q-joint???

I used to stop at Pastor Hamilton's BBQ in St. Paul once in a while on the way home from work and pick up some goodies. Not bad!

I wasn't aware that Lone Spur was a BBQ place. It's 2 miles north of my place.
As a side note, Lone Spur used to be Lone Star. Some other place has a copyright on the name, so they had to change it. Good selection of beer there.

It started out as the Spiral Cut Ham store with a small sandwich shop in it. The sandwich shop made more money than the hams did, so they put more emphasis on that. I went back for lunch yesterday to try the pastrami (also smoked on site) and was not disappointed. Mrs. Curly loved the brisket sandwich and MIL had the brisket/pastrami sandwich. They talked about how good it was all the way home.

As discussed in another thread, Baker's Ribs is pretty good. Some have reported excessive microwaving there, but at least when I went the brisket and ribs were quite good.

My only experience at Baker's was not a good one. Ribs were over done and cold, brisket was thin and tough. There is a place in Champlain that I've heard was good. I think it is QFanatic.
