Baldy's is a local BBQ joint only about 15 minutes from my home. Since we don't have a lot of BBQ to choose from here in Minnesota, we decided to give it a try. I don't know what Baldy's background is, but he sure does know BBQ! We've made this place a regular spot on our "rotate through the local joints" tour.

I usually have the full rack - and end up giving a few ribs to my kids. My only nit-pick would be that the ribs aren't as meaty as I would like - but a full rack is more than I can eat (and I'm a big guy!)
My wife usually has a pulled pork sandwich, but she's found a new favorite at Baldy's - "The Sloppy Chick." The menu says it best, "Baldy got this recipe from his cousin Chick who owns Smokin' Chicks BBQ in Columbia, MO. Pork, brisket, chicken, and turkey served wet in a classic bbq sauce on a giant Kaiser bun." Tastes as good as it sounds!
RIBS - 7 Splats
Nicely smoked, had a nice fire-ring, and were fairly meaty

BEANS - 5 Splats
Not much here, but at least I found some meat in 'em!

FRIES - 7 Splats
Double fried and crispy

SAUCES - 7 Splats
Baldy has a good selection from regular to sweet to spicy. Give the Golden a try - I'm usually not a big fan of mustard-based sauce, but I actually use this one every time I visit.

Well worth a visit if you're in the area!
