Smoked BBQ

They’ve been open for several months, but I finally got to try Smoked BBQ for the first time today. It’s located at 203 2nd Avenue North, where the Pizza Baron used to be. It’s a small but cozy, fun place. I’ve heard lots of people rave about it, and now I know why. The brisket was amazing – tenderest, juiciest brisket I have ever had. The mac-and-cheese was awesome, too. Best BBQ in town? I…


The Big Stack

A tasty meal at Borrie’s in Black Eagle! And check out this awesome semi-new piece of art on the wall: Created by Jason Garneau of After Image Metal Art: And he was featured on a KRTV “Montana Made” segment a few months ago:

Running a restaurant is HARD, and I salute Janet (and her predecessors) for making it work for so, so many years. We enjoyed eating there, both as a couple and with friends. I hope someone can come along and revive that spot (as long as it’s not Olive Garden or…


Mmmm…ribeye

Is there anything better than a drive out to the Highwood Bar on a Friday night for a juicy, delicious ribeye steak? I absolutely LOVE the 30-minute drive out there — rolling hills, winding road, Highwood Mountains leading the way. And the steak. OMG, the steak. I am still amazed that SO MANY people in Great Falls don’t know about and/or have never been here for Friday steak night. And although the steak is the…
