Barbecue: Como Smoke and Fire

Como Smoke and Fire prides itself on maintaining a sense of place, promising to serve ‘cue that reflects central Missouri. Try the thick-cut pork steak, cooked on the restaurant’s wood-fired grill, or the smoked pulled pork with spicy barbecue sauce. Must-try sides include beer-battered onion rings, baked beans and mac ‘n’ cheese. (Photo courtesy Como Smoke and Fire)
