Burnt Finger BBQ smokes out the competition

Kansas City teams showed why it’s called the Kansas City Barbecue Society with strong showings at the Smoke on the Water USA Barbecue Championship in North Little Rock, Arkansas, earlier this month.

The contest has the largest purse in the country, with $100,000 in prize money awarded to the competing teams. This year, Kansas City’s Pellet Envy — the 2009 KCBS team of the year — walked away with the grand championship. And Burnt Finger BBQ — the inventors of the Bacon Explosion — were called to the stage for placing in three categories.

Fat City recently caught up with Jason Day of Burnt Finger to talk about the competition on March 19 and 20 and the team’s cookbook.
