A note about serious food allergies

There's a rumor on the Internet that St. Louis consumes more BBQ sauce than any other city in the nation. (And we all know, the Internet is never wrong!) These ground beef loaves use BBQ sauce twice, plus use BBQ seasoning in forming the tasty and moist loaves. We think that sings of the St. Louis-style, like Judy Garland singing in the old MGM musical. (She may still be alive and living in Aruba…. We saw it on the Internet.)
