Burn Co. Barbeque

This is the best sandwich I have ever eaten.

I thought I was clever when I took my mom’s meat loaf recipe (hamburger and ground sausage mixed together) and topped it with bacon instead of ketchup.

Burn Co. Barbeque one-upped me.

Burn Co. sells something called the Fatty. The Fatty is bacon wrapped around ground sausage wrapped around ground-up hot links wrapped around more ground sausage wrapped around a smoked sausage. Imagine turducken made out of pig instead of poultry, and you’ve more or less got the idea.

Like turducken, only better.

Now, imagine smoking the whole thing in a Tulsa-made Hasty-Bake, slicing it off, and serving it with a side of hot potato salad made of smoked potatoes, onions, and peppers.

I'm surprised there aren't more.

There’s obviously a reason Burn Co. has a collection of ribbons on its otherwise unassuming walls.

Tucked into a little storefront between a biker bar and a novelty shop on the 11th Street alignment of Route 66, Burn Co. is a lunch-only, Tuesday-through-Saturday operation that obeys Newton’s First Law of Barbecue: the more unobtrusive the exterior, the better the product inside.

Blink and you'll miss it. Which would be a shame, because it's awesome.

Burn Co. opens at 10:30 a.m. and stays open until 2:30 p.m. or until the food runs out — whichever comes first. We got there at 11:30, and they were already out of ribs and sausage-stuffed pork loin.

Service is quick and friendly, and the kitchen is out in the open, so you can watch the employees slice and assemble your sandwiches while you wait. Samples are handed out freely (we tried a bite of brisket, which was divine — and I don’t even particularly like brisket), and the workers all seemed to be enjoying themselves the day we went.

Great place. Highly recommended.
