- Driftwood's smokers are set to smoke.
Any competitive barbecue team worth its rub will tell you the same thing: Barbecue just tastes better in a parking lot. The fact that the sun is shining and beer is being quaffed is irrelevant. You'll have to forgo the suds, but Kansas City's newest food truck is hoping the old axiom holds true. Driftwood BBQ
opened last Thursday in the parking lot of the State Line Shopping Center at 103rd and State Line.
The food truck is run by Allison and Brian Bloch. Brian, the pitmaster, is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu with stints in the kitchens at Le Fou Frog, Cafe Provence and Cupini's. Driftwood serves three hickory-smoked main dishes: a brisket sandwich ($7) with honey-lime coleslaw and dill pickles; barbecue ribs ($7) mopped with a hickory molasses sauce; and smoked Italian sausage ($4) with slaw, relish, onion and mustard. Fries are available either BBQ-rubbed ($3) or topped with bacon and blue cheese aioli ($4). Soda is a dollar, which means a barbecue lunch will set you back just under $10 if you split a plate of fries with someone.
