#FiredUpBBQ: Discover Barbecue Without Boundaries at RackShack

Fork-tender flame-grilled pork ribs, succulent pulled pork, savory Texas Hot Links and Crack Fried Chicken. Everything you love about an authentic BBQ feast fresh from the grill and all the BBQ sauce you want...it's fired-up barbecue at Rackshack.


Barbecue is almost like a religion, steeped in tradition with a specific set of rules. There's a certain way in preparing barbecue as well as eating it. Break one of the rules and it's no longer legit barbecue. From Kansas to South Carolina and Texas and the rest of the world, barbecue is a culinary institution that measures authenticity with the quality and cut of the meat, the spices and seasonings to rub the slab, the number of hours in the smoker, and the type of sauce used to baste and glaze the meat. But if you want to have fun with your own rules and enjoy ridiculously good barbecue at your own pace, there's an exciting new place just for you. From the same group that brought you Racks and the best ribs in town comes another innovative dining concept to take your BBQ dining experience to the next level at Rackshack. Ready to experience barbecue without boundaries? Read on and discover fired up barbecue at Rackshack...
