We like us some Kenny Bowers. This is the mastermind behind many restaurants located in Addison and in Frisco. His Kenny’s Burger joint is the real deal, and we love the meatball at his Italian hook-up.
Back in May, Chef Kenny went on a road trip and brought us back snapshots from Memphis. Little did we know at the time that it was actually a mission to sniff out great barbecue. Now the man is ready to debut his latest restaurant, Kenny’s Smoke House which will be located in Plano, Texas.
The acclaimed chef and his business partners, Mike Hutchinson and Bob Stegall, will open Kenny’s Smoke House at The Shops of Legacy this winter. The 2,700 square foot restaurant will showcase a variety of smoked meats as well as favorites that fans of the popular chef have come to expect.
“I’ve always been a weekend barbecue fan,” notes Bowers. “This is a restaurant concept more than twenty years in the making.” Bowers has not only been barbecuing recreationally for years, but has visited many of the nation’s top destinations for grilling, smoking and barbecuing meats to evaluate techniques and ingredients. The menu will feature pulled pork, brisket, both beef and pork ribs and smoked sausage sourced from Southside Market in Elgin, Texas.
Bowers will slow smoke a variety of meats and seafood daily over hickory. “Hickory is like the Pike Place Blend of smoking woods,” notes Bowers. “It provides an easy, comfortable smoke level and burns to just the right temperature.”
Guests will enjoy the festive mood in the restaurant as strains of blues and jazz create ambience. The warm intimate dining room will feature exposed brick and rich mahogany wainscoting. But like all of Bowers restaurants, guest comfort and experience will take the forefront.
Kenny’s Smoke House will join other restaurants opened by this successful team, including Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill, Kenny’s Burger Joint and Kenny’s Italian Kitchen. Look for the new restaurant to debut December 2012.
