About half of my formative years were spent roaming the streets of Sedalia, Missouri.  If you’re not familiar with Sedalia it’s a small town of about 21,000 folks about an hour and a half to the East of Kansas City.  Sedalia has a few claims to fame:

1.) During the Great Depression it was judged to be the second most economically damaged city behind Gary, Indiana – not a great claim to be able to make, but a claim none the less.
 
These are all interesting facts, but the two Sedalia claims to fame I particularly remember deal with food – the Guber Burger at the Wheel Inn and the BBQ at Dickie Doo Bar-B-Que! I’ll save the Guber Burger and the Wheel Inn for another post – this post is about one of the Best BBQ Joints in America – Dickie Doo Bar-B-Que!
It was always a special event for us to get in the car and head to Dickie Doo Bar-B-Que when I was a kid.  Over the years some things have changed (it has a much larger and more diverse menu), but the thing I remember the most has stayed the same – Dickie Doo-Bar-B-Que has the best B.B.Q. Beans I’ve ever had – they are amazing and will put a smile on your face!!  The ribs are good as are the other BBQ dishes.  I can’t speak for some of the non-BBQ dishes, because I never get them, but others who have seemed happy.  If you’re ever in Sedalia drop into Dickie Doo’s and enjoy a great meal. Check them out on the internet for more information.  If you’re looking to make some great BBQ Beans of your own visit Pork Barrel BBQ’s website and order some of our Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce and All American Spice Rub!!!
