There is something so primal about barbecue: cooking meat with wood, that makes you want to lose the utensils. Every time we visit a barbecue joint, expect me to roll up my sleeves, wiggle my fingers and just dive into the abyss of deliciousness.
Barbecue is primal and just an easy going eating ritual. Nothing fancy as barbecue joints are designed like wood sheds with tables, chairs and a cashier. You usually eat your smoked meat on butcher paper or disposable plates. You can even come in your pajamas if you wanted to!
So when we came into one of Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue locations in Kansas City, lo and behold! There were romantic dim lights, black leather booths and table and silverware wrapped in a cloth napkin no less. Gasp!
