bBQ, folk & soul
Every morning, before the sun comes up, our pitmasters are busy firing up the smoker to serve you the freshest, tastiest meats. We smoke our ribs all day to ensure you get them straight off the pit. We believe in buying locally. Our menu is smoked in Ole Hickory Pits, built in Saint Genevieve, and smoked with a combination of wild cherry and hickory sourced from Terry, "the woodman", from Perryville, Missouri. The cherry gives a subtle sweetness and gorgeous color to the meat, balanced with a touch of hickory for that rounded, uniquely smoky finish. We take inspiration from across the United States, but like to dance to the beat of our own drum, infusing different smoking techniques from X, Y and Z. Our focus is, and always will be, rustic American cuisine.
Our kitchen cooks from scratch. Try our legendary Burnt Ends, a smoking recipe developed by Corey, Pitmaster of Grillas Team and winner of KC Royal 2003. Our Tri-Tip Steak is an Argentinian technique, simply marinated and rubbed with salt, pepper, rosemary & garlic. Our ribs are smoky, sweet and sticky. Our chicken is smoked whole and pulled for every sandwich. We make our own bacon resulting in our famous Walnut Bacon appetizer. The list goes on … in short, we cut no corners and we love what we do: good folk, fresh bbq and honest, soulful food.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Sincerely and Cheers,
We like beer. A lot. St. Louis has exploded with world class craft breweries, keeping fans of hops, malts and the magical things that happen when they are combined very, very happy. The Shaved Duck is proud to be a go-to spot in the Lou for local craft beers, while also boasting impressive selections from the rest of America's thriving artisan beer scene. With four rotating tap handles and dozens of bottles beauties, you are sure to find something you like.. and a lot of things you probably don't know you like. We want to challenge your palate.. and at the end of the day, nothing goes better with good BBQ than good beers.
Here are some examples of beers we carry, have carried and probably will again. Keep in mind that our current menu may not reflect what you see below. We carry a great number of seasonal and special releases that rotate on an almost weekly basis. We have a full bar and wine available also.
