John Brown Smokehouse’s burnt ends may be the best barbecue that you’ll ever taste.
Bringing Kansas City barbecue to an industrial neighborhood in Queens, located minutes away by subway from Midtown East, John Brown Smokehouse deserves its motto “Fine BBQ for Exceptional People”.
Kansas City pitmasters are famous for slow-smoking a wide variety of meats. In this tradition, John Brown Smokehouse sometimes offers smoked foie gras on its menu.
This restaurant, named after the Bleeding Kansas abolitionist John Brown, takes barbecue seriously.
The proposed menu:
Burnt Ends: Crusty tips of smoked beef brisket
Smoked Turkey: “…a surprise favorite – moist and smooth-textured” (The Village Voice)
Rib Tips: Short meaty sections of pork ribs
Cole Slaw: Vinegary and refreshing
Baked Beans: Flavored with bits of barbecue
Wash it all down with a traditional Kansas City strawberry soda or a beer.
The final bill for the meal, including tax and tip, will be divided equally among the diners. The estimated cost per diner is $15-20. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks that you order. Cash only. Please bring small bills.
Seating is limited to one table. Please only RSVP “Yes” if you will attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.
