Terrific Tastings: Bountiful BBQ Beef

Sunday, August 1

12-1:15pm (PT), 1-2:15pm (MT), 2-3:15pm (CT), 3-4:15pm (ET)

on Zoom

Texas has brisket, Carolina has pulled pork and St. Louis has ribs, but the crown jewel of the Kansas City BBQ scene is a plate of burnt ends. We’re talking about those wonderful bites of brisket that are caramelized and smokey on the outside and tender on the inside. Basically, they’re meat gold….the dish sells out on a daily basis all around town. That’s because Kansas City BBQ isn’t just the town’s most recognizable culinary offering, it’s an institution that has shaped the entire country’s gastronomical landscape since the 1920s. Today, that tradition has expanded to more than 100 restaurants serving BBQ in the area….Put on that bib and get eating.” – Timeout

Let us deliver a curated collection of delicious Kansas City BBQ beef, sauce (and maybe another goodie) to your doorstep. Then, join a delicious discussion & even more delicious guided tasting for Sunday brunch or Sunday supper (depending on your time zone) with culinary host James Sokol and a special guest – a Head Chef who has spent countless hours on the barbecue pit, working to achieve the delicate balance between heat, smoke and fire that is responsible for creating some of Kansas City’s most famous barbecue.

Some now; some later? The BBQ package arrives fully cooked, vacuum-sealed and flash-frozen to hold in all its flavor and moisture. Feel free to enjoy some of it at our tasting and save the rest to enjoy later.

PLEASE NOTE: Collections are available for order thru Sun, July 18 .

Collections will be shipped the week before the tasting.

Come for the crisps; stay for the fun!

The BBQ Collection:

Sliced BBQ Beef Brisket (1-3/4 lbs.)

Slowly roasted over native hickory for 12 full hours, this juicy premium Brisket is fork-tender and full of rich flavor. Lightly sauced and expertly sliced for serving convenience. Tender, marbled and full of flavor, this brisket is as good on the end of your fork as it is in a bun in your hands.

Beef Burnt Ends (1 lb.)

Beef Burnt Ends are a traditional favorite. Moist, meaty & robust, these bitesize nuggets are double-smoked in massive brick ovens to give them that rich, hickory-infused flavor everybody loves. Premium beef ensures the right combination of smokey exterior and juicy interior.

Chopped BBQ Beef Brisket (1 lb.)

A BBQ tradition from Tomball to Topeka, great chopped beef is a must. Create your own BBQ beef sandwiches with these lightly sauced, tender and juicy, bite-size bits of all-beef brisket.

KC Original BBQ Sauce (18 oz.)

Classic Kansas City sauce with a subtle blending of sweet and tart designed to bring out the full flavor of the wonderfully barbecued meats.

Optional Add-On:

Fire-Kissed Chicken Wings (1 lb.)

“These wings are so out of control, you might want to count your fingers when you’re done.” Yes, they are that good. Huge, perfectly seasoned, and smoked to golden perfection!

Some now; some later? The BBQ package arrives fully cooked, vacuum-sealed and flash-frozen to hold in all its flavor and moisture. Feel free to enjoy some of it at our tasting and save the rest to enjoy later.
