MCI BBQ DO VII --July 20-22, 2012

I know a lot of you have been craving BBQ, so sorry for the late start. Rob has been traveling a lot, so we both will be coordinating the Do this year. Not that it needs much coordination - most of us has attended this event enough times that we can stumble around town from restaurant to restaurant in a meat-induced haze!

-------------------------------------------------------------
Friday, July 20th - 5pm-8:30pm (Happy Hour)

Fiorella's Jack Stack (FreightHouse, Crossroads Art District) 8:30pm
www.jackstackbbq.com
Reservation under: Chris Willers
- This is our traditional kickoff dinner, preceded by an extended happy hour while we wait for people to filter in. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, so just bring an empty stomach!

-------------------------------------------------------------
Saturday, July 21st - 11am until we fall into a food coma

-Oklahoma Joe's (inside the Diamond Shamrock gas station)--Mission Road---This one is on the Kansas side.
www.oklahomajoesbbq.com
- Get here early because this place fills up fast! A favorite is the Z-Man and the onion rings.

Danny Edward's
www.dannyedwardsblvdbbq.com
- Some of us tried this place for the first time last year. We walked away pretty impressed with the brisket.

LC's
- Easily located by the billowing clouds of smoke. The burnt ends are especially good here.

Arthur Bryant's
www.arthurbryantsbbq.com
- Another favorite. Try the sausage, brisket, and/or pulled pork.

Gates BBQ (the Original) on Brooklyn Avenue
www.gatesbbq.com
- "Hi, May I Help You?" - prepare to be yelled at when you walk in. Some people are fans of Gates, but my friends and I walked away several times, unimpressed.

- Foo's Frozen Custard
http://www.foosfabulousfrozencustard...best_2010.html
- It doesn't matter if you're stuffed by now or not. Frozen custard just fills in the cracks!

In between BBQ joints, many of us will be buying Christopher Elbow chocolates, going to Harrah's to try our luck at craps, or visiting one of many museums located in throughout the city.

------------------------------------------------
Sunday, July 22nd

- Vow to work off all those calories you've consumed the previous day! Or not - it's pretty much hopeless. You're on your own this day, and most people head for the airport this morning. If you're going to stay longer to sample more BBQ, keep in mind that Oklahoma Joe's is closed on Sundays.

I'm down for sure this year. I've had things going on the past two years and I haven't been happy about it. My roommate works at Jack Stack if we need to get anything organized there, let me know. Or for that matter, any other help you need.

Chris

Mr. Kipper and I are possible, but not quite to the probable stage. I have a conference the weekend before, so taking 2 Fridays off from work in a row is questionable.

Very as AS is now serving MCI...however a bit steep for those dates (any really in the summer) as AS wants over 1K for the weekend. But will keep an eye on this.

Should include Danny Edward's as a BBQ stop. It is a favorite of us locals.

Hoping to attend

That's right! We went to Danny Edwards last year, not Big T's. First post updated. Thanks!

But Big T's is pretty good too.

Nice place to pick up some BBQ before the Royals game on Sunday.

I've got this on my radar. Hopefully, I'll have the dsicretionary funds to be able to attend this year since I missed the last one.
