Burnt Ends Dinner

One of the foods that I wanted to eat while back in Kansas City was Burnt Ends. However, I didn’t just want them from any old place. I wanted the best burnt ends.

Tonight I took my sister and brother-in-law out to dinner at Smokehouse BBQ on North Oak Trafficway in Gladstone, Missouri. I have great memories of meals eaten there in the past.

Here is a snap of the menu choice for my meal. I of course got the Burnt End Platter. I will shorten the description a bit.

Mouth watering chunks of beef brisket served with two sides, Texas toast and pickles.

My two sides were BBQ beans and coleslaw.

Doesn’t this look delicious? The plate of food looks really good, except it would have been nice if they would have wiped down the edge of the plate. However, I was not going to let a little bit of splatter get in the way of the delicious burnt ends.

The BBQ beans also brought back some good memories. One of my friends would always stop and pick up a large container of beans before any picnic we had for holidays like 4th of July or Memorial Day.

The burnt ends were so delicious. I really like the different textures of the burnt ends from almost burnt to a bit fatty. Of course the BBQ sauce also adds to the wonderful flavor of the beef.

For those of you who do not know what burn ends are, they come from the point end of a brisket. This part of the brisket is usually fattier and also cooks a bit faster than the rest. In fact, a good burnt end should have a bit of char.

Yum, the burnt ends were so good. I had been looking forward to these for the entire trip. I am still remembering the taste and texture as I sit here typing.

The meal also brought back some memories of my previous job, which is now 24 years in the past, when I worked in the food packing industry. However, that is another story so I won’t share them now.

Now to get some sleep before my trip home tomorrow.

Have you enjoyed the best BBQ in the country at Smokehouse BBQ?
