Tasty Tuesday–Beast Craft BBQ: The Jive Turkey

Finally, a turkey sandwich from Beast!

The “Jive Turkey Sammich” is another culinary masterpiece, and my new favorite from Beast, beating out the Big Chicken Club by a small margin. Smoked turkey, fried kale, tomatoes, marinated cucumbers, cheese, smokey mayo, and pickles. Now, I normally really hate kale, but I have to say, when it’s fried and covered in mayo, I don’t mind it so much. The combination of tomatoes and cucumbers gave it a nice, fresh taste. And the bun…have I mentioned the buns that Beast uses? I don’t know exactly what it is that makes them so good. They’re substantial, which is a huge deal when the sandwiches are this loaded, but the taste is also great. There’s something unique about it, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s definitely one of the best buns I’ve ever had, though!


Ryan tried the smoked turkey plate, and he said it’s fantastic…better than Hick’s, which was his previous favorite local BBQ turkey. I can attest to the fact the turkey is moist and has a fantastic flavor. I’m hoping that this becomes a regular attraction at Beast, and, as always, I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with next!
