Famous Dave's ensures the secret to burnt ends is safe

The secret is safe.

Pitmasters guard their secrets like the Knights Templar, only giving them up when faced with death or a human of great moral conviction (a penitent man, for example). So I'll admit that I was a bit worried for Kansas City pitmasters when I saw that Famous Dave's was promising to reveal the secret to burnt ends. I envisioned a squirrelly executive infiltrating the smoky underbelly of KC just to ferret away a multigenerational spice rub or time-honed wood mix. Then I remembered, this is Famous Dave's we're talking about...

While I'll agree with Famous Dave's that burnt ends aren't widely available nationwide, I'll suggest that these burnt ends won't be divulging a great pitmaster secret. True burnt ends aren't finished in a cast-iron skillet with carmelized Sweet & Zesty sauce. True burnt ends get a second pass through the smoker, where the rendered-down fat often provides all the flavor one needs.
