Chefs at Mr. K’s Barbecue patiently smoke their southwestern-style brisket, pork, and chicken, paring juicy servings of meat with classic sides and desserts. One-meat dinner plates ($10) treat taste buds to a complete mealsperience, side-kicking a choice of chopped brisket, pulled chicken, or one of seven other meats with two sides, such as fried okra, Country Fair corn, or mac ‘n’ cheese. Sandwiches border a half pound of barbecue ($7) with bready handles, and barbecue by the pound, including the half rack of ribs ($12), is served simply in dry-rubbed tuxedo.
The smoked Thanksgiving turkey adds the centerpiece to holiday spreads while leaving ovens free to bake potatoes or develop a crush on the microwave. Weighing in at 12–14 pounds, the turkey is smoked for upward of eight hours while soaking in a rich mesquite flavor and donning a lustrous, golden coat.
Mr. K's Barbeque
Charles Kendrick has been cooking since the 1960s, taking his fondness for traditional barbecue flavoring to the kitchen with his latest venture—Mr. K's Barbeque. Mr. K's serves a distinct style of patiently-smoked Tucson barbecue, in a market-style setting, that includes half-pound pork, beef, and chicken sandwiches in a tomato-based sauce and racks of ribs served simply in dry-rubbed tuxedos. The restaurant also offers catering packages that feature one, two, or three meats along with homemade sides.
