The Best Way To Celebrate National Pulled Pork Day

National Pulled Pork Day lands on Saturday, October 12. Since our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks serves hand-pulled pork as one of our specialties, it seemed like a perfect holiday for us to take notice of. We actually feature our hickory-smoked pulled pork in a few different ways here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. First a few fun facts to intrigue you, then on to the delicious stuff!  



DID YOU KNOW...

  • Pulled pork is an American dish that originated in the southern United States. 
  • The United States is the world's largest exporter of pork. 
  • Iowa is the top producer of pork in the United States. (That's where we've got another Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive, IA, a suburb of Des Moines!) 
  • Pork is the most widely consumed meat in the world! It's followed in popularity by chicken and then beef. (We hickory-smoke all three of those marvelous meats!) 
  • Pork has more protein than chicken and is high in zinc, iron, and B-vitamins. 
  • Studies show that pork of today has become leaner since the 1950s. 


Pulled Pork at The Boot
Wobbly Boots BBQ slow-smokes our pork over hickory for about 16 hours. Once it is at it's most flavorful best, we hand-pull and trim it for your dining pleasure. You can order it alone as your main meal or enjoy it as the main ingredient in many of our other dishes. 

Smoked Meat Plates
These BBQ plates come with your choice of any of our hickory-smoked meats as one jumbo serving, a double-meat combo, or a trio of slow-smoked meats.

Smoked Meats on a Bun
This time you can order your pulled pork (as well as any of our other meats) in a 5-oz or 8-oz serving on a locally-baked Kaiser roll. We serve our BBQ wet (meaning sauced) but feel free to ask for the sauce on the side of you prefer to add your own.

Crusty Cuban
House-pulled pork, pit ham, pickles, house mustard, and Swiss cheese pressed to a crispy perfection.




The Big Salad
Add your choice of a delicious meat topping to a large bowl of mixed greens topped with tomatoes, red onion, cheddar-jack cheese, and Provel cheese. (We also offer The Small Salad for anyone that's a little less hungry.)

Loaded Baker
A huge baked potato stuffed with pork, beef, ham, or turkey and topped with cheddar-jack cheese, crumbled bacon, green onions, and BBQ sauce.

BBQ Pork Nachos
Corn tortilla chips covered with spicy queso cheese sauce, pulled pork, baked beans, cheddar-jack cheese, tomatoes, and onions, served with a side of jalapenos and available as a full or half-order.




Wrangler Wrap
A wheat tortilla stuffed with three of our signature items - pulled pork, baked beans, and creamy coleslaw.

Southern Style Pork
A pulled pork sandwich with a Carolina twist. We top that delicious hickory-smoked meat with our creamy coleslaw!

Beale Street Burger
Our tribute to the South! This burger is topped with pulled pork and creamy coleslaw.





Well, there you have it. All kinds of mouthwatering ways to enjoy savory hickory-smoked pulled pork at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant. Come in on National Pulled Pork Day, or any other day for that matter, and give it a try. Once you do, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse's pulled pork if very likely to become your absolute favorite!

Burnt Ends - From Scraps to a Delicious Delicacy!

A customer favorite off the menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach is our flavorful burnt ends. Did you know that this delicious dish was originally discovered by accident? Pitmasters were only trying to create the perfect brisket but a second equally amazing food was invented. 

Our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks found our own way to perfect burnt ends but its origin story comes from another place famous for BBQ right here in Missouri - Kansas City.



From Trash to Treasure
The fantastic menu item that people love today actually came from the end pieces of brisket that got cut off because they were too charred and fatty to be served. Once cut off, these pieces used to get thrown away, used for scraps in stews, or sometimes snacked on by the chefs.

As customers were waiting in line they would notice these ends begin piling up as the brisket was cut, and some would grab a few to pop in their mouths while they waited for their order. One Kansas City BBQ restaurant, Arthur Bryant's, began setting their burnt ends out on the counter as a free snack that patrons were encouraged to enjoy.

In 1972, a now-famous article appeared in Playboy magazine written by Kansas City native Calvin Trillin. He praised and bragged about the burnt ends, even going so far as to say "I dream about those burnt ends!" It didn't take long for the restaurant to realize that this "throw-away meat" deserved its own spot on the menu. Even though they were already a popular treat, pitmasters went to work perfecting the way this "new" dish would be prepared.


Burnt Ends at the Boot
If you've tried the amazing burnt ends we serve here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, then you know exactly what we're talking about when we say they are a memorable dish that is simply irresistible. Believe it or not, they are considered a Kansas City food and most restaurants outside of that area don't even bother to put them on the menu. (Those other places don't know what they're missing!)

That's not the case here at the Boot! We proudly serve burnt ends whenever we can. (They get eaten up quickly, but we always make more!) In our opinion, if you're striving to serve the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, this is a must-have menu item.

The process begins with our slow-smoked brisket tips. These get double-rubbed and double-smoked in a beer and BBQ sauce for the ultimate in flavor sensations! You're left with a tender, flavorful, one-of-a-kind taste.


We highly suggest giving burnt ends a try the next time you dine at our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. They are available as a sandwich or served on a plate next to one of our homestyle side dishes. It's definitely a meal you will fondly remember after just one bite, just like you'd expect from Wobbly Boots BBQ!

Join Us at Lake of the Ozarks WingFest 2019

When you're searching for the best wings at the Lake of the Ozarks, our flavorful, tender, hickory-smoked Wobbly Wings are a great place to start. In our humble opinion (and that of just about every person that has given them a try) the wings at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach are the tastiest, most enjoyable wings you're ever going to sink your teeth into! 

Of course, if you're the type of person that likes to compare a few different wings all at once, you're in luck! You can join us, along with many other lake area restaurants, for the 2019 Annual Lake of the Ozarks WingFest.


2019 WingFest Details
This year's tastiest of events, the 2019 Lake of the Ozarks WingFest, will take place on Wednesday, September 25 from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Regalia Hotel & Conference Center in Lake Ozark.  

Tickets can be purchased in advance at any Central Bank of the Lake of the Ozarks location for just $10 or at the door for $12. Plan to show up good and hungry because, with that ticket, you get 2 straight hours ALL THE WINGS YOU CAN EAT! (While they last, that is. This is a VERY popular event, for obvious reasons!) 

Your ticket also comes with one free drink plus there will be a cash bar available. They plan to keep you entertained in addition to well-fed because the wonderful Cindy Lawhorn will be performing at WingFest again this year. All of the proceeds raised from ticket sales will be used to benefit local charities.  



Why Wobbly Wings Are The Best
Once you taste the award-winning, hickory-smoked Wobbly Wings served at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, you're going to have a tough time finding wings you like better! We have a very special way of creating that irresistible wing, plus 6 different ways to serve them that offer delicious variety. 

First, we coat juicy, jumbo chicken wings in our house dry rub. Next, they are slow-roasted in our hickory pit for the perfect amount of time to ensure the most mouthwatering meat possible. After that, you may order them:

  • Plain - No sauce needed, just that hickory-smoked goodness. 
  • BBQ - Our house recipe sauce. A great addition to anything!
  • Original - A mustard-based sauce like no other. Try it, you'll be hooked!
  • Chipotle Buffalo - Our version of traditional buffalo.
  • Teriyaki - Sweet and delicious!
  • Trashed - Our smoked wings deep-fried before serving. 


We hope to see many of you at the 2019 Lake of the Ozarks WingFest later this month. It's always a wonderful night out full of fun and great food benefitting some terrific local organizations. You don't have to wait until WingFest to get your wing cravings satisfied though. Come on in to our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant any day of the week and order up a plateful. It will be a good warm-up for all the wings you'll be eating at the WingFest!
