What is a Burnt End?
The name sounds like an overcooked mistake, but this savory dish is anything but that! Burnt ends are actually the incredibly flavorful pieces of meat cut from the point half of a smoked brisket.
Brisket at Wobbly Boots BBQ spends a large amount of time in the smoker to give it the amazing flavor that it's well-known for. The pointy tips end up cooking faster than the center, and they dry up looking charred and burnt, thus the name. They may not be the prettiest food, but they are definitely one of the most mouthwatering meats you will ever have the pleasure of putting into your mouth!
A long time ago, most cooks would throw away the burnt ends or use them to flavor other dishes. A few kitchens even gave them away from free. Eventually, some wise chef realized what a culinary treat these burnt ends could be. The extra cooking time allows for an extremely intense, delicious smoky flavor.
Here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, our burnt ends are double-smoked, double-rubbed, and seared. Every enticing beef chunk is carved right from the brisket point, and then we serve them up with our award-winning house recipe beer BBQ sauce. Due to the extra cooking time, burnt ends are always served wet (with sauce,) never dry.
A Rare(ish) Treat
While burnt ends are now an everyday menu item at the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may miss out if you're too slow to order them. There are only so many ends to serve on each brisket we smoke, so once a batch is gone, you'll have to wait until we smoke another brisket to get more. (Don't worry, we sell a LOT of brisket, so we're making burnt ends quite often!)
Our Southern Comfort Food offers Burnt Ends served on a plate alongside one of our amazing side dishes. You can also find them on our Down Home Sandwiches menu under a healthy serving of cole slaw between a bun, also served with one of our delicious side dishes.
Come on in to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse soon and give these unbelievable burnt ends a try. Even the pickiest BBQ fan will fall in love with a plate full of these! Just one more reason that when you're craving BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, the Boot is the only place to go.
