Why do we love smoked brisket above many other types of meat?  Is it because of its resonant, beefy flavor, its exterior as shiny as black patent leather, its speckles of fat moistening every mouthful, while leaving stains on the eater’s shirt?  Yes. the very nature of brisket is to be delicious.  Yet, there is more to it at Sharpshooter’s Pit and Grill.  We love brisket because cooking it is a spiritual path, a quest that, as a wise man once said, begins with a single log.

The steps to insure perfection are threefold.  The seeker of brisket truth must first embrace mental discipline, immersing himself in the craft of tending the smoker temperature and minding the meat.  Second, the seeker must practice physical discipline, just like our very own pit master Joe D., to be capable of wielding and slicing a twelve-pound brisket after having mothered that brisket the precious 12-14 hours.

To complete a brisket of this professional quality it’s all about low and slow, for a perfect period of time with routine observation.  When the interior temperature has reached that perfect level, it’s pulled from the smoker, wrapped and allowed to rest for at least 45 minutes before serving.

Sharpshooter’s Pit and Grill in St. Louis prides itself on serving the most delicious brisket in the St. Louis area. To insure the quality and taste of our brisket, each is trimmed by hand and generously seasoned with our homemade house brisket rub.  After sitting for 24 hours we then take it to the smoker to start the journey of lean juicy brisket, ready for a plate or sandwich.

This is a real labor of love!

Things That Make Sharpshooter a Great St Louis BBQ Stop http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/things-that-make-sharpshooter-a-great-st-louis-bbq-stop.html http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/things-that-make-sharpshooter-a-great-st-louis-bbq-stop.html Missouri barbecue is a thing of beauty.  Sure, I’m from Missouri and perhaps a little biased, but my home state doesn’t always get the credit it deserves on the smoked meat front.  When Missouri barbecue is mentioned, most people think of places like Memphis.  Well, right here in St. Louis, Missouri at Sharpshooter Pit and Grill we serve championship BBQ every day.

Pork is King

By and large, pork is the one true king at Sharpshooter Pit and Grill.  The cuts of meat may differ by venue, but there’s one thing we can agree on: Pork makes the best barbecue.  Pork shoulder is perhaps the most common now.  Our Pit and Grill pork shoulder is slow-cooked, up to 14 hours smothered in our secret rub.  After a cooling period, our chefs shred the pork meat to prepare our award winning sandwiches for our loyal customers.

Sharpshooter barbecue is what many aficionados would call true blue barbecue.  None of that slap it on a hot grill with a thick layer of sauce stuff – this barbecue is a whole-day love affair.

This means the meat is cooked low and slow, the fat slowly liquefying while basting the meat, and smoke flavor gradually permeating the outer layer, thus creating the “Smoke Ring”.  It’s a labor of love and pit masters tend to their BBQ with care.  Undercook the pork and it will be chewy.  Overcook it and the meat becomes stringy.  The magic is in-between – juicy and flavorful, and easily falling off the bone.

A quintessential element of Sharpshooters Championship BBQ is is the perfect amount of wood smoking.  Our woods of choice are apple and cherry, which deliver a milder, sweeter flavor than other wood.  No matter how it’s done, the basic requirement is smoldering wood kicking up fragrant smoke and infusing the meat in the process.  It will form a reddish ring near the exterior of the meat, which, again, creates the “Smoke Ring”.  It gives the slow-cooked meat a smoky flavor, complementing the flavor of the meat without overpowering it.

Come by Sharpshooter Pit and Grill for the award-winning BBQ that is slow-smoked to “PERFECTION”.

Sharpshooters Is a Great Place to Eat Barbecue http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/sharpshooters-is-a-great-place-to-eat-barbecue.html http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/sharpshooters-is-a-great-place-to-eat-barbecue.html BBQ Ribs St Louis

Barbecue is HOT!  It’s on TV constantly, BBQ festivals are sprouting up all over Missouri like wild flowers and people are lining up for a taste of America’s only continuous indigenous cuisine.  But as popular as it is to talk about and watch on TV, the best part is eating it!

BBQ Associations all over the Midwest have been collecting reviews on their local BBQ joints for years.  These reviews are being submitted by judges with a true love for what is known as traditional American BBQ.

Right here in St. Louis at Sharpshooter’s Pit and Grill located at 8101 Gravois we have been serving up award-winning BBQ for years.  We recommend anyone who loves barbecue to come early and come often because we smoke fresh daily and close when we sell out.

All taste is subjective.  While hundreds of reviews can help collectively guide you in your quest for the perfect plate of ‘que, you will have to make the ultimate decision for yourself. 

If you like ABC barbecue and you don’t like XYZ, then you should obviously eat at ABC often and stay out of XYZ, regardless of what any judge or reviewer might say.

We’re confident that after all is said and done you will agree with the thousands of happy customers that have judged the BBQ at Sharpshooter’s Pit and Grill in St. Louis at 8101 Gravois to be award-winning delicious.

Our menu is fresh daily including the smoked baked beans we can’t keep in stock.  Each piece of meat is pampered and smoked to perfection by our long-time Pitmaster, Joe D.

Everything fresh, every day, cared for over 12-14 hours like a new mother caring for her baby.  If you think Smoked Meat and BBQ, think Sharpshooter’s Pit and Grill!

Dad Eating"I had the best day at Sharpshooters with my Dad the other day.  It was a fantastic day, and we'll be back soon!  We started with lunch at the BBQ place.  We both got the rib special, and it was amazing!  The ribs were fall off the bone good, and we were both blown away by the flavor! 

Then, we went to the gun shop to check out the selection.  It's HUGE!  We checked out all of the pistols, rifles, and AR-25's, and then they told us they can order us any gun!

We finished the day at the range, and it is state of the art, man!  We used the lane to squeeze off about 40 rounds at the targets they provided.  It was amazing!  The lanes were clean and well-lit, and shooting was a lot of fun.  All said, this is a great father and son place, and I recommend it to anybody who likes shooting, delicious food, and a great environment.  The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and just fantastic.  We'll be back as often as we can!"

The Best BBQ Restaurant In St Louis' Pulled Pork http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/the-best-bbq-restaurant-in-st-louis-pulled-pork.html http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/the-best-bbq-restaurant-in-st-louis-pulled-pork.html Sharpshooter Pit and Grill St Louis is the area's best barbeque restaurant, but how did it get that way?  It's simple - they put in the time.  They take each item on their menu and create a unique taste that keeps people coming back.  Take the pulled pork, for example. The Pitmaster comes in at 5:30 in the afternoon to start the rubs and smoking process.  From there, the pork butt is placed in the smoker for its 14-16 hour cooking time, giving it a long, slow cooked flavor and tenderness that many smokehouses don't take the time to achieve.  The butt is then judged at 5:30 a.m. by the pitmaster, who carefully monitors the last fe hours of the smoking cycle.

IMG 0089 CopyThose are the simple rules that keep Sharpshooter a step above their competition in the St. Louis barbeque scene.  This attention to detail in every aspect, from preperation to cutting to serving, is the reason that they can keep customers coming back.  So come on in and try a selection from our menu, and experience the best barbeque in St. Louis today!

St Louis' Best Smoked BBQ Brisket http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/st-louis-best-smoked-bbq-brisket.html http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/st-louis-best-smoked-bbq-brisket.html We get a LOT of people asking us about the processes for our barbecue here at Sharpshooter Pit and Grill.  People that come in for our brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken, baked beans, or any of our delicious foods want to know how we get the meat so tender and juicy.  Well, it's not an easy process!

St Louis BBQ BrisketOur Pitmaster starts smoking the next day's meats at 5:30 P.M. or so, using our special, secret house made rub to create the unique flavor that our customers have come to expect.  What's in the rub?  I'm sorry, but it's a trade secret.  If we told you, well, we are on top of a gun range...  However, our slow-smoked brisket gets its rubdown to ensure deliciousness and goes into the oven at approximately 5:30, and starts the process of smoking.

The pitmaster returns at 5:30 the next morning, and starts the rigorous testing to make sure that the brisket is up to our standards.  He checks color, temperature, and texture to see how much longer the brisket will need. Brisket is smoked at Sharpshooter from 12-14 hours, depending on a few factors, including the size of the cut and how much other meat is also being smoked.  The meat is then expertly carved and served as sandwiches or straight on the plate, with any of our delicious sides.

Sharpshooters, St Louis' Newest and Best Indoor Shooting Range http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/sharpshooters-st-louis-newest-and-best-indoor-shooting-range.html http://banggoodbbq.com/blog/entry/sharpshooters-st-louis-newest-and-best-indoor-shooting-range.html Gun store owner Keith Brooks has kicked off a new venture — a shooting range and restaurant — with a bang.

indoor shooting range st louisSharpShooter Indoor Shooting Range and Training Center opened last month, after Brooks spent $2.75 million to build the 20,000-square-foot facility on Gravois Road in Affton. Brooks has operated South Side Jewelry & Loan — which combines jewelry sales, a pawn shop, and firearm sales and loans — at an adjacent building for 21 years. “We make handgun and firearm loans,” he said. “So it was kind of a natural move for us.”

A car wash was torn down to make way for the new shooting range and the restaurant, called SharpShooter Pit & Grill, at 8135 Gravois. There’s also a new causeway connecting his existing store to the new space.

The shooting range, with 20 lanes, has an advanced ventilation system. Costing $750,000, it replaces the air in the building every 60 seconds. SharpShooter Pit & Grill is a 60-seat restaurant serving smoked meat and barbecue.

Brooks financed the project with a loan from Concord Bank. His combined business is expected to generate $3 million in revenue, he said.

Brooks said the jewelry, pawn and gun store is a $1 million business with 18 employees; the pawn shop alone sees 1,500 transactions a month. The gun store has 4,000 square feet of retail space.

Brooks hired 23 employees to staff the new facility, and he projected gross sales of $750,000 at the restaurant, and about $1 million at the shooting range.

The range has two training rooms, and Brooks employs five training instructors led by Larry Bruns, a retired FBI special agent. They are certified to lead professional law enforcement training.

Customers are a blend of professionals, such as security guards and officers, and recreational customers, including first-time shooters.

“One of the biggest growing segments of our customer base is women,” Brooks said. “They are very interested in their personal protection.”
