Smoke Daddy's Review of The Filling Station | "Show us your pits"

Smoke Daddy's Review of The Filling Station

I can recommend the slaw and sausage (if you like italian spices).  I've heard the chicken wings are good.

MAIN FARE:Filling Station Spread

  • Brisket - Moist. Pulls apart, but is not fully rendered.  Chewy with bitterness from bad smoke (creosote).
  • Burnt Ends - Nice chunks, but super bitter
  • Rib - Tender & moist...  But ruined by creosote
  • Sausage - Heavily laced with italian spice.  Doesn't suffer as much from bad smoke due to short exposure.
  • Pork - Shreds nicely, but it is bitter

OTHER FARE:

Filling Station Interior

  • Beans - Thick sauce. Not too sweet.  Good flavors here until you get to the meaty bits.  Brisket or burnt ends are bitter and ruin the beans too.
  • Slaw - Vinegar-based with sweetness.  Good balance.  Good crunch. Good slaw.
  • Potato Salad - Fairly standard mustard-based with some cumin? Interesting.
  • Mild Sauce - Tastes like Taco Bell taco sauce
  • Medium Sauce - Uses mild sauce as base and adds a little heat
  • Hot Sauce - Uses previous sauce and kicks it up several notches to Insanity Sauce level

ATMOSHPERE:Filling Station Pit

  • Restored gas station on main drag in Lee's Summit
  • Decor seems a bit over-the-top / contrived in an obsessive-compulsive sort of way
  • Nice patio out front
  • Using a Southern Pride oven... poorly
  • Quotable: "There is too much stuff coming OUT of peoples' mouths."
  • Our Thoughts: This joint could be great with a few operational changes
