Legendary Pulled Chicken Z-Man Sandwich Kit - 8 Pack

Product not eligible for additional discounts or promotions

Joe’s Kansas City BBQ ships its legendary BBQ nationwide on Goldbelly! The Legendary Z-Man Sandwich just might be the best BBQ sandwich you’ll ever try! It starts with a toasted Kaiser roll and a bit of Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que Sauce, then a pile of slow-smoked, pulled chicken is added, then smoked provolone and two crispy onion rings and some more sauce. Named one of Thrillist’s Top Sandwiches to Eat Before You Die, this icon of KC BBQ is now being delivered nationwide!

After participating in their first barbeque competition in 1990, Jeff and Joy Stehney were hooked. Soon, they were winning some of the most prestigious competitions in America. Eventually, they opened Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que in a Kansas City gas station, and the rest is history. The Stehney’s three restaurants have become synonymous with the best bbq in Kansas City. Joe’s KC BBQ was featured on “No Reservations” with Anthony Bourdain, “Man vs Food” with Adam Richman, and “Delicious Destinations” with Andrew Zimmern.

We ordered the spare ribs and brisket and burnt ends for a dinner party and our only regret was not getting two or three packages of the spare ribs. Everything was cooked perfectly and so juicy. We followed the quick and simple heating instructions precisely. This was the best-smoked meat we've ever tasted and now we are anxious to order again for the next party.
