Kansas City Competitive Barbecue
Once known for its stockyards, Kansas City is still famous for its incredibly diverse barbecue scene. It’s a barbecue obsessed town, with dozens of restaurants serving amazing ribs, burnt ends, pulled pork and brisket. But I found that some of the best barbecue is in the backyard smokers getting ready for the competition circuit. Here, I get a glimpse into the world of amateur barbecue competitions with the owners of Redneck BBQ. It’s serious business. There may be a science behind it, but this kind of barbecue is an art.
Headed to Kansas City? Here’s a few not-to-miss barbecue joints.
