Tasty Tuesday–Beast Craft BBQ: The Krispy Daddy

If you’re tired of hearing about Belleville’s newest BBQ place…well, too bad. I’m really enjoying being able to support them in whatever small way I can, because they have great food and a great commitment to local products and freshness!

Today we’ll be looking at the Krispy Daddy:


Kielbasa, pulled pork, and candied bacon, drizzled with Beast’s signature BBQ sauce, and sandwiched between…two Krispy Kreme donuts?!?

I’ll admit, I was reluctant to try this one. I’m from Belleville, so I’m familiar with “Baseball’s Best Burger,” served at Gateway Grizzlies games, also sandwiched between donuts, and frankly, the idea has always grossed me out. But I was thinking about this new creation, and I figured that the concept isn’t too far off from a Monte Cristo sandwich, which I do like, so it was worth trying.

I’ve had the pulled pork and candied bacon on another sandwich, and I already knew they were good. I hadn’t tried the kielbasa yet, and to be honest, I couldn’t remember if I even liked kielbasa (although I was pretty sure I had tried it at some point before). Well, Beast’s kielbasa is just as good as everything else I’ve tried, and I would totally eat it again!

It took me and all five children to put a dent in this monster sandwich, and even then, we had some pulled pork leftover. Not a bad way to feed a group, though, and they all liked it!

To be honest, I probably won’t order this again, just because the combination of the bacon and the “bun” was a little too sweet for me. I’m just not much for mixing sweet and savory in a main course, I guess. Plus, I really, really love the buns Beast uses, so I missed that part of the sandwich. It was good though, and as always, I look forward to seeing what other unique specials Beast comes up with!
