The man behind Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill, Kenny’s Burger Joint, and Kenny’s Italian Kitchen is opening another eponymous restaurant, but this time it’s all about smoked meats and barbecue. Kenny Bowers, who seems to have his hand in everything, is geared to have Kenny’s Smoke House open in The Shops of Legacy this December. Read the rest of the press release below to get taste of what’s to come.
Kenny Bowers must be smoking something – brisket and pork to be exact! 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.
Park Tavern opened in early August, but the sleek interior of this contemporary gastropub still smells like fresh wood. Last night we sent our photographer, Melisa Oporto, to the restaurant’s VIP Grand Opening event to see what this bar/restaurant/place-you-can-watch-sports-while-eating-bar-food is all about.
The weather looks fantastic this weekend. Texas is going to feel like California, and I couldn’t be any happier about it.
Celebration Farmers Market: In a Pickle and City’s Salsa will be absent this week, but don’t fear! Their products will still be inside the store.

Josh Heddin Farms has purple hulled peas and pinto beans, squash, melons, berries, peppers, onions, and fresh Canton peaches.

As of last night, football season is on again, and with the Rangers poised to win the AL West yet again, it’s good times all around for the local sports enthusiast.
And for those who aren’t into sports, there are always food blogs.
Luckily, we all need food to keep from dying, so in that respect, food and football go hand in greasy, sauce-stained hand. Football, of course, means grilling (honorable mention: chicken wings). This season, we’re starting with some lighter fare: salmon burgers. You’ve got until early February to gorge yourself on burgers, dogs, brats and whatever else your inner fan demands. No need to overdo it.
Oh and do yourself a favor and buy beer for the game on Saturday. Kickoff and the start of beer sales on Sundays are, cruelly, at the same time. Don’t become another statistic. Continue reading "Look What I Made: Salmon Burger Recipe"1 Comment »
