Kansas City BBQ

Trundy Dec 12, 2006 04:10 AM

I'm going out to Kansas for a the weekend and was looking for some BBQ. Did a couple of searches and found an amazing number of restaurants to chose from. I love a good brisket and baby back ribs are a favorite. Any local suggestions for some good food? I appreciate any advice.

    if you are in the Kansas City area then there is not a lot you can do to go wrong, but i will warn you that a lot of the replies you get will be very passionate about BBQ, and everyone has their favorite.

    for my wife and i, we really like Gates, Jack Stack, Smokin' Guns, and, our favorite right now, is Oklahoma Joe's. the most famous may be Arthur Bryant's, but we've found we like other places better. for ribs, i like Smokin' Guns the best, followed by Oklahoma Joe's. i'm not as big a fan as brisket, so i'll let others give you scoop on that.

      Thanks for the advise. We hit Jack Stack & Gates last weekend. Had some great ribs at both places.
