Some call it adventure, we call it life

Each year Burnt Finger BBQ tours the country promoting live fire cooking and the barbecue lifestyle.  We make stops at barbecue competitions, festivals, TV shows, radio stations, retail stores, cooking schools, trade shows and many more.  Join us along the way to experience our authentic “Smokey Kansas City” barbecue!
