SPRINGFIELD, MO, just moved here...

ChrissieH | Jan 22, 200501:17 PM     27

So here I am in Springfield, Missouri. I've read the Midwest posts back through several months' worth, and can't find much about food in this city. Okay, none.

Are there any other CH'ers here? Is there any good food?

In particular, the BBQ. I'm sick to death of BBQ brisket that hasn't been smoked long enough and therefore has to be sliced on a machine. If you cook it long enough, you wouldn't be able to do that because it would be so tender, it'd fall apart on a slicing machine. I'm looking for good, tender brisket that has to be very carefully hand-sliced. Is that just not a "Missouri thang"? And if not, as I suspect, what is the most popular local BBQ meat....ribs, pork, what? Obviously I need to switch my BBQ meat preference, 'cause the brisket I've tried thus far stinks.

What else should I try in "Missouri's third-largest city"?
