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 St. Louis" by the readers of the RFT & GO! Magazine, and "#20" on Ian Froeb's "STL 100" list.
"BEAST Butcher & Block" is set to re-innovate "Craft BBQ" from "The Grove" late summer 2018.
