Sides Dishes That Deserve As Much Attention as the Main Dish!

Here at The Barn-B-Que Smokehouse in Lake Ozark, occasionally we get a bit carried away putting our specialty Bloody Marys together. You won't see these over-the-top creations every single day at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant & bar  but if you keep an eye on The Barn-B-Que's Facebook page , you'll have a heads up each time we create a new special. (Or, you could go ahead and stop by in person daily to see what specials we're running that day!)  Since Halloween is this weekend and the name of this delicious drink fits so perfectly with the theme of that holiday, we decided to take a deeper look into the history of this classic cocktail. Here's what we found.  The Bloody Mary Cocktail Basically, a Bloody Mary is made with vodka, tomato juice, and additional spices like Worcestershire sauce, hot sauces, celery salt, and lime juice, to name a few.

The Barn-B-Que Smokehouse makes every effort to serve the very best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks . This requires us to know how to cook up the classics in a way that at least stands up to (but preferably far exceeds) what you've tasted before.  A perfect example of this is our irresistible smoked baby back ribs. All great BBQ joints need to know how to cook up an amazing rib and our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant has definitely figured that one out! What do you already know about this mouthwatering cut of meat? Here are a few details for you about this BBQ staple followed by the many tasty ways we serve 'em up to you here at The Barn-B-Que.   The Infamous Baby Back Rib This type of rib doesn't get its name because it comes from a young pig but rather because of the fact that it's a shorter cut in relation to spare ribs.
