    For those of you who love Battles, maybe you should eat there a little more often:

    How do you not pay your taxes on items you collect taxes on?

    who exactly are we saving them from?

    Failing to pay your income tax isn't the most sympathetic cause out there.

    Re: Battles

    noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!! A player, coach or a program deemed unnecessary (baseball) but not Battles. But really, you have to be a very bad business person or an idiot to not pay your tax.

    Using pellet smokers is cheating.

    Re: Battles

    In my opinion, Battles has gone downhill since George passed away. Granted I don't live near Ames anymore and only get in a handful of times per year, but I used to eat there once a week in college and remember the portions to be slightly bigger, and the prices a bit lower, and I could always buy a bottle of sauce.

    Also, I thought George sold Battles to someone, but from the story, it appears someone in the family is running things?

    At any rate, I hope something happens and they stay around in some form. Having tried nearly every BBQ joint here in KC, I still prefer Battles sauce. Maybe it's more of a Texas style BBQ thing vs KC. Anyone know?

    Re: Battles

    I'll tell all of you again. Take the short drive over to Boone and go to Jimmy's BBQ. I've always liked it better but it is the same type of food. Give it a try.
