One of our objectives on a short trip to visit our son in KC was to pickup some wood for smokin'. The Woodyard was the recommendation. We got some great pecan, and a fabulous lunch.
The Woodyard is unique, a nearly 60-year-old local business that has been known for its wood and recently went into the restaurant business. The Wednesday lunch special - $6.95 for a smoked half chicken and two sides was an incredible bargain.
We also went with a smoked brisket sandwich. Both were good, the chicken being the better deal.
You order inside the old house, with seating inside and out. We opted for outside to watch Mark turning the ribs and brisket in the huge outdoor smokers which had been going all day.
I know The Woodyard is starting to get a really positive reputation, and we loved it. Plus, I'm going back to Utah with 30 pounds of pecan.
