How many calories are in burnt ends?

Burnt ends, a traditional part of Kansas City barbecue and considered a delicacy in the barbecue world, are flavorful pieces of meat cut from the ends of a smoked brisket — pork or beef. Burnt ends can even be made from ham. And they're usually smothered in barbecue sauce.

So, calories? It depends upon if the burnt ends are from pork, beef or ham; and how fatty the burnt ends are. Also, it depends on the type of barbecue sauce, as there is great variation. To give you some idea: a 3-ounce serving of beef brisket has 304 calories, 218 of them from fat.
