Burnt Ends: Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue

In a show of dedication to the local specialty, Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue offers pork, beef and sausage burnt ends. Whichever you choose, you won’t be disappointed, but the traditional beef burnt ends are smoky, juicy and gorgeously charred – the definition of why the dish is a Kansas City barbecue staple.
