Burnt Ends

Where to go: Danny Edwards Boulevard BBQ

After taking the briskets off the pit in the morning, Danny Edwards splits them and takes the lean part to slice for sandwiches. Then he takes the tops and cuts off the fat, seasons the meat, and puts it back in the pit. After a time, it’s chopped for the burnt ends. Unlike other barbecue joints, these are not fatty leftovers gussied up to avoid waste, but crisp and tender morsels of goodness.
