Kansas-City Burnt Ends are a traditional part of Midwestern barbeque culture and a delicacy in their own right. The richest, most flavorful beef brisket is slow-cooked to melt-in-your-mouth tenderness and charred with a sweet and smoky spice rub that gets mouths watering. Burgers will seem like small potatoes once you serve up Kansas-City Burnt Ends, especially when accompanied by onion rings or fries.
