Ernestine’s BBQ

After touring Nicodemus, I saw an open sign at Ernestines! I bought a jar of BBQ sauce for our Veggie Chik Nuggets, some potato salad and baked beans to take home for lunch. “Ernestine is a descendent of the Williams family, one of the first to settle in 1877. The family had a long culinary history that Ernestine used and created a bbq restaurant. 5 years before she passed, she and her niece, Angela Bates, collaborated and re-opened the bbq restaurant, and developed her sauce to that it could be sold everywhere. The sweet, smoky and a bit spicy flavor is what people say is the best bbq sauce they’ve ever had”. A link to another blog about BBQ related visit to Nicodemus and a link to Ernestine’s mail order site ( if you aren’t in Kansas)

Ernestine is gone but her BBQ place and sauce live on!
