A long time Travailian, chef Kale Thome recently started Minnesota BBQ Co. featuring smoked meats, classic sides, and all the fixins. As he works with the Travail team to open a new location in NE Minneapolis, he's smoking and cooking out of Travail and catering special events. Follow along as this new project cooks and sizzles like a fine slab of smoked brisket. 



Kale's serving up smoked ribs, brisket sandwiches, smoked duck, half chicken, apple bacon sausage, slaw, baked beans, house made pickles, and a sweet and savory sauce to top it all off. Look for that great crusty bark on his brisket and watch the meat fall off the rib bones. This Kansas boy knows his stuff, and is helping put Minnesota on the barbecue map!
