Red Beard Barbecue, located at the SEK Stockyard Diner, in Gas, is open Fridays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Owners Hiram Raby, left, and Austin Honaker are planning to launch a food truck this spring.

In the few months since their slow rollout, the guys at Red Beard Barbecue have put together what must be the most ambitious, locally sourced, well-made menu in southeast Kansas.

Pulled pork with ancho barbecue sauce and homemade pickles. Fry-bread tacos with smoked chicken and house chorizo. A beef and broccoli bowl with prime brisket au jus, kimchi, and fried rice. Beer-battered chicken breast with sweet chili mayo. Beef-fat fries. Orange-Agave-glazed brussels sprouts. The “Ode to Joe” — a token of deference to a favorite sandwich at the legendary barbecue joint Joe’s Kansas City — composed of smoked prime brisket, Swiss cheese, fried onion strings, and house barbecue sauce. Pulled pork tacos with brie bacon bechamel, fig marmalade, and toasted pine nuts. A Korean tofu dish — for the vegan in your life. Mac ‘n’ cheese. Breakfast burritos. Angus burgers. Popcorn chicken. Creme brûlée.

And nothing on the menu is more than $10 (though you do have the option to purchase smoked meat by the pound or take home a full slab of ribs).
