Two kinds of ribs for all kinds of carnivores.

Mission BBQ Bay-B-Back RibsWe earned our chef chops traveling this great land to find the nation’s best BBQ. And that's when we learned why some folks call St. Louis “America’s Top Grilling City,” so we brought their rib recipe back home. But in our opinion, the Baltimore area's Bay-B-Que ribs rank right up there. So which is it? That distinctively tangy tomato-based sauce that made Missouri famous? Or our very own dusted with Old Bay specialty inspired by crab boils on the Eastern Shore? You...

MISSION BBQ Feeds Stars at Sunday In The Country Concert

Sunday In The Country ConcertOn September 16, it was our mission to fuel a great music tradition. That’s when WPOC's annual Sunday in the Country concert series came to Columbia and we put some “tang in their twang.”  This year’s lineup of up-and-coming country stars included Eric Church, Thompson Square, Justin Moore and David Nall — who all enjoyed our pulled pork, smoked turkey, potato mash, and more.  Their performances were perfect and so was the weather, made even better with a whiff of MISSION BBQ in the air.

Check out our Gallery and also check out WPOC's video and pics. We're now looking forward to next year.

We will never forget.

But first comes the celebrity-voiced announcement: “Ladies and Gentlemen, please join us to stand for our national anthem as we do every day in honor of...
