History Of Kansas City Barbecue

Kansas City BBQHere is a great video from a couple years ago that has some brief history on Arthur Bryant’s, Gates and barbecue here in Kansas City. Thanks to @bbqsociety for pointing it out on twitter today! My favorite quote (no offense North Carolina): “Kansas City’s metro area now has more barbecue restaurants per capita than any city in the United States.” Of course we have our favorites (yes, it really is in a gas station) but there are many to choose from! I think I’ll head to Hayward’s today, it’s one block from my office and has the Triple Stack (and if you order it, be very hungry)!

Here is a small sampling of the more famous KC area BBQ joints if you’re in the mood for some good Que:
