Burnt LegendThe Story of Kansas City's Burnt Ends

Media

Burnt ends are a part of every Kansas Citian’s DNA — they are iconic, and incredibly tasty. While beloved by many, the true story has remained obscured by a screen of smoke and hidden under the piles of hickory used to stoke the pits. KCPT, Flatland and Recommended Daily joined forces to tell the real story of Burnt ends — one delicious bite at a time.

The Burnt Legend project was released in five weekly webisode installments, with a full feature airing in its entirety on KCPT.  Jason appeared in all five webisodes, the full television version, as well as several advertising pieces leading up to the launch.
