Fun Facts About Iowa Food We Bet You Didn’t Know

Iowa’s official nickname is “The Hawkeye State,” but another nickname we are known by is “The Corn State” or sometimes the “Land Where the Tall Corn Grows.” We are also well-known for the many hogs that inhabit Iowa and, of course, one particular famous sandwich that’s a staple at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. These facts have inspired our BBQ restaurant in Des Moines to dig up a few fun facts about some of the tasty foods that Iowa helps to make great.

CORN

DID YOU KNOW that farming encompasses about 90% of the land in Iowa? It’s true! Many of those farms have helped to make Iowa the nation’s leading producer of corn and corn byproducts. Our unofficial state song is “The Corn Song,” which clearly states that “that’s where the tall corn grows!”

Burnt Ends – From Scraps to a Delicious Delicacy!

A customer favorite off the menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive is our flavorful burnt ends. Did you know that this delicious dish was originally discovered by accident? Pitmasters were only trying to create the perfect brisket but a second equally amazing food was invented. Our BBQ restaurant in Des Moines found our own way to perfect burnt ends but its origin story comes from another place famous for BBQ – Kansas City.

From Trash to Treasure

The fantastic menu item that people love today actually came from the end pieces of brisket that got cut off because they were too charred and fatty to be served. Once cut off, these pieces used to get thrown away, used for scraps in stews, or sometimes snacked on by the chefs.

As customers were waiting in line they would notice these ends begin piling up as the brisket was cut, and some would grab […]
