Kansas City freelance writer Ardie A. Davis misses the years when the late Arthur Bryant presided at his famous “grease house,” birthplace of the original true burnt ends. Mr. Bryant’s burnt end scraps from brisket trimmings were free. Davis, raised in Oklahoma City, has called Kansas City home for more than 40 years. He has authored or co-authored 11 books about barbecue and pens monthly columns for the KC BullSheet and National Barbecue News. His Kansas City Star Chow Town barbecue blog appears online on Thursdays. Davis’ most recent books are America’s Best BBQ, Revised, with Chef Paul Kirk, and Barbecue Lovers Kansas City Style.
