Fired Up at Cactus Bob's BBQ

Who can resist mouthwatering, all-American BBQ?  Definitely not Haleigh and I.  While in Johnston, we zeroed in on Cactus Bob's BBQ Corral to feature as a Hot Spot that's literally... well, hot!  Cactus Bob's began as a love of competition style BBQ shared by two best friends, Robert Prince and Craig DeDecker.  For two years, the BBQ connoisseurs perfected their rubs, sauces, and recipes. Cactus Bob's opened in June of 2005 and has been serving up delicious, homemade BBQ ever since.

Enjoy the feeling of your tongue being on fire?  Cactus Bob's offers the popular Showdown Challenge.  For a $6 challenge fee, you attempt to eat a brisket or pork sandwich smothered with "showdown" sauce... in 10 minutes or less without taking a drink. Winners go down in BBQ history, get featured on the "Wall of Dangerous Eating Desperadoes," and receive a free Cactus Bob's t-shirt.

Haleigh and I went halfsies on The Big Pig (succulent sliced pork shoulder) and The Longhorn (tender Texas-style beef brisket) sandwiches. Plus, we gobbled up fries and slaw on the side.

Next time you get a hankering for BBQ, we highly recommend you head straight for Cactus Bob's located at 5955 Merle Hay Road in Johnston, Iowa.  To find out more about the restaurant's story, mouthwatering menu, and catering options check out the Cactus Bob's BBQ Corral website and give them a "like" on Facebook.
