They showed one flash of a Jack Stack bag but that was it. They sould have at least cover a couple more places or have stayed strictly with the cookoffs. Then again how else do you produce a show for free.

Bryant's is the Alpha and Omega of KC 'que. Although there may be other high points, every discussion must start and end with Arthur.

I saw a show recently on Food Network (something with Bobby Flay) where they featured Jack Stack's beans. Normally, seeing some food made is enough to make me not want to eat it ever again. Not so with those beans. To cook their beans, they put them in the bottom of their smokers, so they catch all the meat drippings, then mix in a good helping of burnt ends before serving.

I almost got a hard on from watching that segment.

Yeah, burnt ends or crumbled top brisket (the dried out stuff) really make beans da bomb while you eat 'em instead of just after.

You want some killer beans at home? Try this simple recipe: Get one of those 40 oz cans of beans, place them in a casserole dish. Fry 6 strips of bacon smothered in brown sugar for a few minutes until the brown sugar starts to bubble. Break the bacon into bits and sprinkle on top of the beans and then bake in the oven at 350 for about 45 mins. Yummy, yum, yum....

Agreed!

I buy a case of rubs every spring since I don't live in KC. Every trip back to KC I try to hit Jack Stacks at least once or twice, and try and throw in a trip to Bryant's as well, but Jack Stacks BBQ is the best in my book. Usually bring back a couple hot and fire sauces as well.

Yeah, Gates may have them on ribs or something, I don't know, but give me the average menu item at Jack Stack, as well as the baked beans, over anywhere else.

Best BBQ in KC is a Poor Russ sandwich and a side of beans at Jack Stacks. Bryants is good though.

Here's a freebie, and I did this last weekend and they are a dead ringer. Here's the recipie to Jack Stack Beans. No joke.

1 32 oz can pork and beans
1 cup Jack Stack Original BBQ Sauce
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Water
4 TBSP Brown Sugar (Heaping)
1 TSP liquid smoke
1 Cup Chopped Beef Brisket (or Burnt Ends)

Proper way is to combine and put in a pan under meat in smoker once meat has reached a safe temp, and let cook until thick, or meat is done. Using hickory of course. I put this under a pork shoulder and brisket and JEEZ, perfection.

Jack Stack says to combine in a 4 qt sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook for 20 minutes until beans have a thick soupy consistency. (this way doesn't add the meat flavor so it won't be as good)

You can all thank me later, trust me, these are fantastic.

As many of you know... I live in Austin (my handle was really confusing when I lived in Spain).. and that means zero chance of decent BBQ. So in my continual effort to "make do".. I am looking for either a recipe for a great BBQ sauce or a way to "convert" a nationally available sauce into a decent one. I am a huge Jack Stack guy .. so something that ends up like their original sauce would be perfect. Although I will try damn near anything.

Any ideas, recipes, etc?

If you are ever in Topeka, go to Boss Hawgs BBQ. Its near 29th and Oakley, and I think its as good as Gates. (Not Bryants)

I'd never go back to these places: Rib Crib (good if you like to gnaw on your ribs for a few hours), Haywards (gone waaaayyyy down hill), Famous Daves (Good if you like Ketchup-flavored BBQ Sauce).

I don't like the new Bryants near Nebraska Furniture Mart/Cabelas as well either. The fries don't taste the same to me, and they charge for anything extra.

I am not a big fan of Stubbs, I've never tried Emeril's or Sweet Baby Ray's... of the others I agree with you for the most part.. but actually don't mind Kraft of all things. What I am looking for is a baseline that I can use to make a better sauce than I can find here.

I've tried this too over the years, and after many different "experiments", I would highly recommend just ordering this stuff off of the website to get the real thing......that's what I'll be doing this year. Also, their new Steak Rub is pretty decent if applied moderately.

Agree with you on Boss Hawgs...good stuff. I've been eating at Hayward's pretty consistently for the past 20 years or so, and while there definitely was a drop in quality, it seems like they've rebounded quite a bit in the past several months. I think old management is back or something.

Hot and Original are mustard based, South Carolina Style.
Sweet and Smoke and Spicy are tomato/molasses based, KC style.

All four are VERY worthy. Never thought I'd get into Mustard Style, being raised on KC style, but the Hot is perhaps my favorite out there.

The restaurant is closed but he's still bottling his sauce(regular and spicy),in fact a place called Keith's BBQ over in Elwood,KS is using it.Personally,it's the best I've ever had,we served it last year at the 37 Forever party and Pink liked it so well I got her a few bottles for home.

I tried the recipie listed in the thread starter below:

I ended up cutting back on the salt, adding extra vinegar and spice. I also simmered it on the stove for an hour or so. I think it turned out pretty good, but I never record exact amounts, so I won't be able to reproduce it. You might want to give the main recipie a try, then modify to your taste.

I don't understand the fascination with this place. I know I'll never go back.That can be a problem at Gates. Multiple locations, some locations do it better than others. Ask for your beef sandwich LEAN and they'll give you a leaner cut. Turkey and Ribs are very good. Give it a second chance, and try something other than beef.

Jack Stack is also very good, it doesn't have the track record of Gates, which has been around since the 1940's. I think the best in the city are Gates, Bryant's and Rosedale. Some guy wrote me about a six page diatribe a few weeks ago, chewing me a new one because he thought Oklahoma Joe's was the best BBQ in the nation, and I didn't see it that way. That's the thing, everybody's got their own opinion about BBQ, so, party on, Wayne!

I'll agree about Haywards, it did seem to go down for a while, but has been pretty darn good the last few times. Of course normally the wife and I just split one of thier sandwiches, haven't tried their ribs or anything like that. That is the wife and I's normal stop for BBQ. Boardroom's sandwhich wasn't to bad either.

I got one of those brisket sandwiches after the Royals home opener at the Gates in Raytown. I was sicker than a dog the entire night. I can't even fathom eating anything with their sauce on it right now.

I've always been an Arthur Bryant's man myself.

I had Haywards for the first time over lunch today and that was pretty dam good.

Still, nothing comes close to Bryant's for me.

Fiorella is Jack Stack. They used to be called Smokestack. But there is a Smokestack just off the southern start of Bruce Watkins Parkway [where it takes over from 71 HWY] that, while not a popular, had been established in the area longer, and who took the trade name back from them for the KC area. Fiorella is the last name of the owner, so they changed their trade name to Fiorella's Jack Stack.

While we're running down memory lane, and referencing Martin City, I miss Keegans.

While I don't agree with you about Gates I am happy to hear someone else appreciates Rosedale, one of my three KC favorites.

1 Bryants
2 Jack stack
3 Rosedale

Fiorella is Jack Stack. They used to be called Smokestack. But there is a Smokestack just off the southern start of Bruce Watkins Parkway [where it takes over from 71 HWY] that, while not a popular, had been established in the area longer, and who took the trade name back from them for the KC area. Fiorella is the last name of the owner, so they changed their trade name to Fiorella's Jack Stack.

While we're running down memory lane, and referencing Martin City, I miss Keegans.

There is a Smokestack at 89th and Wornall. Ate there today, love the poor russ and the sauce is great.

Rosedale's in my mind is good, but not one of the top. What about Smokin Joe's? I like the burnt end sandwich. For the most fries for your buck, Oklahoma Joe's wins.

Each of the BBQ joints have a "best item." So, depending on what you are jones'n for, you can find a place to go that will always fit the bill!

I don't doubt that, especially if your only "Gates" experience was at Kauffman Stadium. Gates has excellent turkey & chicken, the pork and ribs are wonderful. Some of you have tried the "burnt ends" that I think are fatty and grisly, because it the end piece of a slab of ribs that has been trimmed away.

Gates sauce is terrific, and they make at least three styles, hot, original and sweet and mild. I've gotten subpar meals there on a couple rare occasions, usually it's been a fatty sandwich or less than hot bbq beans. But most of the time it's very fine. You can ask for them to cut your sandwich LEAN if you're worried about it.

You can buy their stuff over the net: http://www.gatesbbq.com/\

Other really good BBQ joints include: Rosedale in KCK, LC's BBQ (couple of locations) some folks like Oklahoma Joe's (Mission, KS and Olathe) and a real sleeper is Boardroom BBQ in Overland Park. It's very good.

I was back in St. Louis a couple of weeks ago, and I noticed that the KC Masterpiece on Lindberg Blvd. had closed--so there may only be one there now.

FWIW, though, the best bbq I've ever had was in St. Louis. The Super Smoker on Watson Road (near Crestwood) is fantastic. Ribs, pulled pork, and chicken are all first rate. They even won the "whole hog" category in the Memphis in May Int'l Competition a couple of years ago. They have the usual variety of sauces, but I prefer the dry rub they use on the ribs to any of the sauces.

I lived in Kansas City for about 20 years and remember a number of their joints very fondly. Nobody else has mentioned it, but I was always a sucker for Jake Edwards (on Main near the Plaza). Nice hole in the wall with a great sauce. Not sure if it's any good today, though.

That location was horrible, due to the divider down Lindbergh. Coming from the south you gotta drive by it, loop onto Olive, go over the overpass, loop back down onto southbound Lindbergh, then there's that tiny entrance to navigate while people are driving around you at 50+.

Nobody else has mentioned it, but I was always a sucker for Jake Edwards (on Main near the Plaza). Nice hole in the wall with a great sauce. Not sure if it's any good today, though.

I work about 2 blocks from that location. They recently moved further south on Wornall. I never ate there because my coworkers said it really sucked.....

Sorry, but that location near Union Station isn't BBQ!! You DO NOT serve BBQ with a sprig of parsly and you do NOT have cloth napkins when eating BBQ.

I usually eat on the patio, no cloth napkins and I don't recall any parsley either. Are you sure you're thinking of Fioreella's at 101 W 22nd street.

Is that due to the size of the serving, or the size of the one being served? :p

You forgot slivered onions, diced garlic and a healthy shaking of Zatarains spice.



NO! Tony's! Not zatarain's! Man, nobody in Louisiana uses that stuff, ya gotta use Tony's!

Based on what I saw a couple of weeks ago, the size of the serving.
