"Eating the Jon Russell sandwich was one of the best culinary experiences of my life. The burnt tips were incredibly juicy, cooked to perfection, but what really blew me away was the BBQ sausage. BBQ sausage has never struck me as something I absolutely have to have in my life, but that changed after this meal. The combination of the perfectly tender and crispy beef and the wonderfully smoky sausage was sensational. It's the only thing I've had in Kansas City that I absolutely have to order again. This was my kind of barbecue."
