Someplace I really like to eat: Burger Shoppe Ė Kingfisher
If you havenít had the Burger Shoppe in Kingfisher, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
Itís one of my favorite burger places to eat at in all of Oklahoma and itís a bonus for me that itís just a short drive.
The hamburgers are always fresh and just taste exceptional.
I always go with the Double (why is single even an option?) Onion Bacon Cheeseburger with onion rings or tots.
Iíll be honest, I never get fries at any place unless itís just the only option (however, resident expert Michael Swisher does recommend the Burger Shoppeís fresh-cut curly fries).
Tots and onion rings are just far superior in my opinion.
I have yet to try it, but several Burger Shoppe regulars claim the Ribeye Steak Sandwich is phenomenal and will quickly become the ďgo-toĒ for anyone that gets it (Mr. Swisher agrees with this assessment and recommends one add cheese and - for an extra kick - the coney slaw).
So, if youíre rolling through Kingfisher, check out Burger Shoppe at 116 N. Main St. and you wonít be disappointed.
Someplace to eat if youíre going to the Game of the Week: Greazy Steve's in Pond Creek
Check out Andy Campbellís blog piece from last year on Greasy Steveís to get the inside scoop because it sounds like a winner.
Something to cook at your house this weekend: Smoked Meatloaf
A couple of months ago on Twitter, I saw world-famous BBQíer Moe Cason smoke a Meatloaf and I was really intrigued.
I mean, I love meatloaf!
My wife, my mom and my college roommate Rodneyís mom all made exceptional meatloaf.
I especially love meatloaf sandwiches!
So basically all you do is take your normal meatloaf recipe and just smoke it for 1.5 hours on each side at about 250 in your smoker.
