Product Details

There’s a reason Kansas City is the BBQ Capital of the World. We do it best! Here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City, we’ve been teaching folks how to smoke and grill through our Midwest BBQ Institute for 23 years! Our BBQ instructors are literally world champions! No foolin’! With the right tools, ingredients and instruction, YOU can BBQ like a pro, too. In our ‘Bad-Ass BBQ’ Foodie Gift Box we have curated what we know to be some of the best tools, products, and accessories to bring out the inner Bad-Ass BBQ’r in anyone. Choose from our Standard ‘Bad-Ass’ Box or our premium ‘Badder-Ass BBQ’ Foodie Gift Boxes. Here’s what’s included in each:


  • Meat Claws: A simple but revolutionary tool for pulling meats such as pork or chicken.
  • 11″ Grill Tongs: No one can grill or smoke without a pair of high-quality long-handled tongs. Check.
  • High Temp Deluxe Grill Glove: Even though BBQ’rs are ‘bad-ass’ it’s not a good look to sport burned hands or arms. That’s why we included this staple BBQ tool. These Fox Run Heat Resistant Gloves withstand temps of 650°F, and are comfortable!
  • Award Winning BBQ Dude’s Rub: This seasoning mix created by our own ‘BBQ Dude’ Larry Hadley is one of our go-to’s here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City. It’s perfectly balanced and goes on just about anything. Our own Main Dish Laura Laiben uses it on grilled salmon to rave reviews!
