Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Boardroom Bar B-Q

<<Boardroom Bar-B-Q closed in 2005 -- see the Boardroom page for more info>>

The rib, onion rings, and atmosphere were my favorites during our visit.

MAIN FARE:Boardroom Spread

  • Brisket - Moist & sliced thin. Pulls apart and has mild smoke flavor.  But it is a bit chewy on the finish.
  • Burnt Ends - Smothered in sauce. Tough.
  • Rib - Good flavor & texture.  A little sweetness on the exterior. Very good rib!  Allspice or something similar in the rub... works really well with the rib!
  • Sausage - Tough casing.  Has a different flavor profile/spice mix than most.  Maybe some funk here?  We are told that it is a beef and pork mix from a local company.
  • Pork - Stringy and moist. Mild flavors.


Boardroom Crew

  • Beans - Sweet with creosote/liquid smoke. Not much meat here.
  • Potato Salad - Mustard/mayo mix with celery
  • Slaw - Fairly crunchy, with a creamy sauce
  • Onion Ring - Man, that's good!!!
  • Sauce - Brown sugar sweet, with a very nice spice on the finish.
  • Bib Bob Gibson - Also brown sugar sweet, but with garlic & worcestershire
  • XX - Brown & Bold with strong heat that really grows on you


Boardroom Hot Sauces

  • Helen & Paul were great hosts
  • Super large barbecue sauce collection prominently displayed throughout the restaurant
  • Using a J&R pit
  • All meats pre-sliced and steamed to keep warm.  
    Note: This method is widely used and accepted here in the KC area (too bad).
