I’m an enormous fan of actually dumb stadium meals, however generally Icarus flies too near the solar. That’s the case with the Kansas Metropolis Royals. On Monday, the group unveiled its newest sandwich, which is extra like a stoner’s fever dream than an precise meals merchandise folks ought to take pleasure in.
Conceptually, I perceive the concept right here. It’s that mix of salty, smoke and candy that makes BBQ interesting usually, however that is simply means an excessive amount of. The problem is that now we have a salty vs. candy arms race enjoying out between the buns, and the pork is caught within the center with no escape.
I’ve extraordinarily sturdy emotions about pulled pork. Residing for 15 years in North Carolina will try this. In my e book there’s just one actual sauce that must be placed on pulled pork and that’s vinegar based mostly and barely spicy. Anything masks the smoke and energy that goes into pit roasting a complete hog for 15 hours. Throwing molasses based mostly sauce on pork is like placing ketchup on a steak — a sin.
That mentioned, there’s a place for normal BBQ sauce — particularly if the pork is missing in pure taste, so I’ll enable it. It’s right here that the sandwich goes off the rails. Somebody clearly mentioned “let’s put peanut butter cups in it,” which tilted the stability too candy, so to rectify that they went and added bacon to infuse extra salt into the equation. The result’s an absolute mess of a meal that shouldn’t be consumed by anybody.
In case you’d eat this factor then extra energy to you. I can not fathom placing this abomination wherever close to my face. Simply because you are able to do one thing doesn’t imply it’s best to.
