Smokey D's Ribs and Burnt Ends

Are you interested in the best barbecue in Des Moines area?  You should visit Smokey D's right off 2nd Ave by the Harley Davidson Dealership.  I have enjoyed coming here for quite sometime and have never had any surprises.    I have tried the baby back ribs, sausage, brisket, pulled pork, and burnt ends.   One of favorite choices of meat is the burnt ends.    The burnt ends are chunks of brisket ends that are packed with deep smoke flavor, dry rub, and a unique texture.  Another favorite is the Baby Back Ribs.  Perfectly cooked with a little tug off the bone.  You have many choices in sides and recommend that you step outside the box.   My favorite side by far is the potato casserole and cucumber onion slaw.  The spud sticks, beans, and tater chips are good too.  They do have several locations serving different items so check out their website for a menu near you.  Very good.

The kids meals are served on frisbees.  My kids love the chicken fingers and ribs.

I am a eater of delicious foods and a lover of good BBQ. You will find me many times tending my smoker, camping, riding my bicycle, and hanging with my family.




Encore Pizza in Johnston

I am not really into the chain pizza buffet's like Pizza Hut and Cicci's Pizza. I have found that it tends to be a mini chow festival. Now I have found a great local place for a pizza buffet. Encore Pizza in Johnston has a buffet that includes a nice salad bar with a selection of thin crust pizza for under $10 with a drink. It is a popular place for lunch so I recommend that you try to come early. There was not a time between 11am and 12pm where there was empty pizza pans. Pizza available for our buffet- pepperoni and jalapeño, pepperoni, chicken alfredo with mushrooms, sausage, cheese, and ham with pineapple.
