The best way to do your Super Bowl party this year is to go Kansas City-style and include burnt ends. I didn’t know this growing up but burnt ends are a Kansas City thing. I was someplace else as a kid and asked for burnt ends and they were like, what are you talking about?
Burnt ends come from the brisket. They are more expensive than many of your other barbecue items. You should be able to oder them anywhere in Kansas City and this, my friends, is the best appetizer for your Super Bowl party.
While your friends on the west coast may put out some guacamole and your friends out east may put out crab dip, here in the midwest you should put out burnt ends.
(I am writing this article hoping Mrs. Arrowhead Pride will see it and plan burnt ends for Super Bowl Sunday)
