Brisket Candy™ (Burnt Ends) - 3 1lb. Packs

Kansas City may be the birthplace of burnt ends and Arthur Bryant may be their king, but Tim felt that Texas needed its own version of burnt ends – especially given that Texas is the undisputed Brisket Capital of the World. Like Arthur Bryant, Tim starts his burnt ends by cutting off the top (somewhat fatty) of one of Crossbuck’s Texas-style, low ‘n slow smoked briskets with its crispy, “sugar-cookie” bark.  He cubes this brisket ensuring each order gets plenty of pieces with that crispy crust.

Then, to give them that “Texas Twist,” Tim tosses the cubes in a heavily sugared spice rub and Texas’s own Shiner Bock beer before placing back into the smoker for further flavor enhancement.In the smoker, Tim’s creation transforms into what we affectionately call “Brisket Candy” - the perfect mixture of an intense savory and an intense sweet at the same time…basically, a “flavor explosion” in your mouth.

    The best "Briskey Candy"

    Posted by Henry on Oct 27th 2022

    I had never even heard of burnt ends until my friend sent these to me as a gift. What an absolute treat! I can see why they call them "brisket candy," there is no way these are going to ever qualify as a health food.

    Just Not For Me...

    Posted by Patrick on Oct 25th 2022

    3 Stars - They are a little too fatty for me... although I was informed by the BBQ snobs at the table that they are supposed to be that way. Whatever, I'd opt for the lean brisket or ribs, they were both incredible.

    Better than Kansas City

    Posted by Maureen on Oct 21st 2022

    I'm from Kansas City... the home of Burnt Ends so I was skeptical when a customer of mine sent these to me as a gift. Wow... they did not disappoint and since they come individually packed in smaller portions, I can now freeze them and have them anytime.

    Nice and Sweet

    Posted by Carl on Oct 17th 2022

    There is not a single restaurant near me that offers burnt ends so when I saw these I had to give them a try. They were awesome - nice and sweet with just the right amount of fat in them for me!

    Hit of the Party

    Posted by Ellie on Oct 16th 2022

    Convenient as can be. I had to bring an appetizer to a "Country and Western" themed party and I don't even own boots or a cowboy. Thankfully, this "Texas brisket candy" was the hit of the party.
