The fall-apart tender burnt brisket ends at Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue are the restaurant's most popular dish. Folks there cook the brisket for six to eight hours before chopping off the ends and smoking them again for another hour or two. Beef ends are the top sellers, but the menu also allows diners to go turf-and-turf, mixing in helpings with pork or ham. The chefs at Fiorella's Jack Stack make it easy to understand why some barbecue aficionados like their grub to have toured the hickory a second time. The restaurants also appeal to barbecue lovers who prefer cloth napkins to a roll of paper towels: The Freighthouse District location (the youngest of the three) is like a barbecue cathedral -- a perfect spot to drape out-of-towners in luxury and authenticity.
