A new place to enjoy true southern BBQ has opened up in the tri cities, however it comes with a twist, a food truck.
“The main thing that sets us apart from other BBQ restaurants is that we always do things the slow way and original way,” said KC Biscuits and BBQ’s owner, Charlotte Williams. She continued by saying “we don’t use any electric, ‘hurry up and get it done’ types of technology, we do it the low and slow way it’s been done since the beginning of barbeque.” Originally, they wanted to start this business as a sit down brick and mortar type establishment, however after having the opportunity of running one themselves, they knew that this simply wasn’t for them. This encouraged them to start looking into the idea of getting a food truck or trailer. That way they could go to the highest number of customers, instead of limiting the amount of people who could come to their business.
Charlotte continues by saying that she recognized that in the pacific northwest, we don’t have many places where you can get a quality buttermilk biscuit like you can in the south. Their biscuits are made with flour from the south, which completely changes the flavor to give it true authenticity. Charlotte explains that they tried following the recipe with normal local flour, however, something just felt like it was missing. This is when they started to import flour directly from the south, and everything changed for the better. As for the barbeque side of the business, they saw many others make similar styles, but as she stated earlier, it was the “quick way” of making barbeque instead of the Texas style barbeque they take pride in.
