Jack Stack Burnt Ends Review
Jack Stack Burnt Ends are available at Costco in a 2-pack that includes sauce and burnt ends. Each pack weighs in at a pound for the meat and sauce for a total of 2 pounds of smoky barbecue goodness. There are 3 servings in each cryovac pack. The 2-pack gives the consumer flexibility. Serve one pack at a time, or use both of them to feed a larger group.
A 5-ounce serving of burnt ends and sauce is 210 calories. This includes 8 grams of total fat. Almost half of the fat is saturated. There are 14 grams of carbohydrates from the sauce and 20 grams of protein. A serving is a perfect size for a hearty sandwich.
At our house we usually use a pack right away and freeze the other pack for those times when the barbecue cravings hit us hard. There are easy heating instructions on the package. I have heated the burnt ends in the oven, in a skillet on top of the stove, and in the microwave. Can you tell that I don’t always follow package instructions? Using the microwave is an easy and quick way to heat the burnt ends, but I prefer the skillet or the oven to crisp them a bit. Jack Stack has a wonderful sauce, but sometimes I want some sweet heat. I add some pineapple habanero sauce and stir it in before I heat the burnt ends. I just love that extra spicy kick and burst of flavor from the pineapple habanero. I highly recommend this convenient food from the barbecue specialists at Kansas City’s own Jack Stack Barbecue. These burnt ends work well as a sandwich filling!
In choosing bread for the sandwich, I like a tortilla wrap or a bun that can stand up to the job of corralling that meat and sauce. In my opinion, bread is not usually durable enough to make a burnt end sandwich, since by the time I am halfway through eating the sandwich, the bread is disintegrating. Buns that work for burnt end sandwiches include hamburger, brioche, pretzel, Kaiser, hoagie, and ciabatta. Most of the time, I prefer a simple burnt end sandwich of smoky meat, sauce, and a fresh bun. However, sometimes I get a wild hair, and I just have to dress that sandwich up!
Add what pleases you to your burnt end sandwich! Pickles and slivered sweet onions are tasty and simple additions. Fried pickles or fried okra are interesting, too. Get a little crunch by adding sweet potato fries or chips inside the bun with the meat. Fried onion straws or onion rings can also add flavor and crunch. You can eat your coleslaw beside your burnt end sandwich, or you can pile it on top of the meat before you close the sandwich. There are many variations on a burnt end sandwich, so jazz it up to suit your unique taste. Jack Stack Burnt Ends are an easy way to make a tasty, smoky barbecue sandwich at home. I highly recommend buying these tender meaty chunks. They are sold in the deli section of some Costco warehouses.
