When you travel to certain places, there’s often a particular food or restaurant you “have” to go to. In Kansas City, they are very particular about their barbecue.

There were many places recommended to us, but we checked out Jack Stack and we were not disappointed:

In addition to the delicious sandwich of “burnt ends” (more on that to come) topped with coleslaw and a side of cheesy corn, they also had a special bloody mary on the menu: Jack’s Smokin’ Mary.

Jack's Stack BBQ

A traditional part of KC BBQ, burnt ends are flavorful pieces of meat cut from the point half of a smoked brisket.

MIX:  House-made mix (sold by the bottle!) with UV Sriracha Chili Pepper Vodka

CHASER: None offered

FIXIN’S: Burnt-End Stuffed Olives, Bacon Salt Rim

PRICE: $8

It’s no wonder the Jack Stack mix is sold by the bottle–it’s delicious. Well done, KC. You impressed us so far. We’re big fans.
