    Lone Star BBQ and Grill, St. Peter

    A couple of years ago this place opened in town and has been growing in popularity. They've won several local (southern MN) awards including best bbq restaurant, and best appetizer (cowboy tots) amongst others. The cowboy tots themselves are worth a trip. They consist of pulled pork wrapped in mash potatoes, deep fried (I believe) with an incredible aioli sauce. I love getting the platter which is kind of a taste it all, ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and hotlink or bratwurst. My wife loves the coleslaw here and apparently the secret is pineapple. St. Peter is pretty small, so when you're close to downtown on any given day you can smell that delicious smoke they've got going 6 days a week. This place is what inspired me to try and start smoking my own ribs, which in turn led me to amazingribs.com. Tom and Mary (both of whom you are almost certain to meet if you eat here) are a great addition to our town. http://lonestarbbqgrill.com/

    We have the Lone Star (franchise) experience here and I must say that it is way below par. As usual franchise's try to recreate an experience that has it's base in a soul proprietor, if the franchisee does not understand their product you get a less than perfect experience.


      We live just 50 miles south of St Peter MN. Didn't know they were there. Can't wait to try them out!


        PitmasterCowboy, this Lone Star is not a franchise. From what I've read on their website and from talking to them Tom and Mary used to build custom bbq pits and as a marketing method went on the competition circuit. Which is where they mastered the art of bbq.


          An update on Lone Star; after some staffing issues they closed the restaurant portion and are currently only doing to-go meats and catering events. Personally I hope they reopen completely.

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

          Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

          3 burner gas grill

          The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
