Nominated for "Chef of the Year" 2017
Chef & Pit Master David Sandusky abandoned fine-dining in 2007 for the more-relevant BBQ sector, finally bringing his "Craft BBQ" concept to the ultra-competitive St. Louis BBQ scene in late 2014. With a chip on his shoulder, and something to prove, David tapped into his "All Killer. No Filler." culture & mentality to create BEAST Craft BBQ Co.
Sandusky has earned several honors, while BEAST has raked in a "truck-load" of awards, including "Best BBQ in Illinois" by Food & Wine Magazine, and named one of the “Top 33 BBQ Joints in America” by Thrillist.
BEAST Butcher & Block is re-innovating "Craft BBQ" from "The Grove" with the additions of “The Butchery” & “The Skullery”.
