Kansas City is a barbeque town! KC’s barbeque roots can be traced back to the early 1900s when Henry Perry started smoking meat low and slow, serving it with a thick tomato and molasses based sauce. While you’re in KC, you could eat barbeque every day and not hit all the great spots. Here are a several that I, a certified KCBS (Kansas City Barbeque Society) barbeque judge, can personally recommend. Hint: Try the Burnt Ends – they are a KC specialty!
- Oklahoma Joe’s
- Woodyard Bar-B-Que
- Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue
- Gates Bar-B-Q
- Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque
