Friends, I love barbecue. I lived in Kansas City for a lot of my growing up years, and I think it’s in my blood. Good barbecue, though, is not easy to do. It takes special equipment and a lot of know-how. So, sometimes you fake it with the next best thing – like with this Pit Beef Sandwich recipe. The meat is well-seasoned, and the liquid smoke gives it a deliciously smokey flavor. It’s also incredibly easy to make! Just season the meat, and then chill it until you’re ready to cook it. It couldn’t be easier or tastier!
