Kansas City barbecue, known for its slow-cooking technique, is always served warm. In this style of BBQ, the meat is cooked at a low temperature for an extended period, resulting in tender and flavourful dishes.
Once the meat is fully cooked in the smoker, it's taken out and kept in a warmer at a very low temperature. We do this to maintain the meat's readiness without further cooking it, as keeping it hot for an extended period could affect its quality and overcook it.
So, if your BBQ is warm but not piping hot, it's in line with the slow-cooked and carefully maintained tradition of Kansas City BBQ, where preserving the meat's quality is paramount.
The pink colour you're seeing in your meat is not an indication of it being raw; it's actually a "smoke ring." This pink ring is a desirable and sought-after characteristic in smoked meats and is a sign of a perfectly executed smoking process.
During smoking, a chemical reaction occurs between the smoke and the meat's surface, creating this beautiful pink ring. It's purely cosmetic and does not reflect the meat's doneness. Rest assured, we take great care to cook our meat to a safe temperature, ensuring it's fully cooked and tender and falling off the bone. Raw meat would have a different texture and tenderness.
So, enjoy that pink smoke ring – it's a sign of a deliciously smoked and perfectly cooked meal, nothing to worry about!
Hank Daddy's Barbecue is not fast food. Selling out of food occasionally can happen due to the unique cooking processes and preparation times required for our dishes. While we strive to provide the best quality and flavour, some items may take hours to smoke or slow-cook to perfection. As a result, we may run out of certain items as the day progresses.
Unfortunately, we cannot quickly prepare more food, meat specifically, on the spot as it would compromise the quality and freshness that we take pride in. Our commitment to excellence means that we prefer to serve freshly prepared dishes, and rushing the cooking process can result in a subpar dining experience.
To ensure you have the best experience and avoid disappointment, we recommend arriving earlier in the day or calling in advance to inquire about our menu availability. This way, we can better accommodate your dining needs and preferences. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to serving you the finest BBQ when you visit us.
