  1. I'm not from KC, but the people who own Porky's in Inglewood and Rancho Cucamonga? made their name in the KC area before settling here. I like their brisket and pulled pork. Found the baby backs wanting.

      Check out Uncle Flip's Smoke Pit of North Hollywood and Kansas City Barbecue Company, both on Lankershim in N. Hollywood.

          Not sure of Uncle Flip's. Kansas City BBQ is about a half-dozen blocks south of the 134, west side of the street, on the corner. Big sign.

          Any ratings on this place? I drive by occasionally, wonder if it's good.

          You're prolly thinking of Zeke's Smokehouse BBQ in Montrose and W. Hollywood, however,

          Kansas City Barbecue Company is located at:
          4141 Lankershim Blvd
          Studio City, CA 91602
          (818) 754-0030

 my take on the place is near the bottom

          Uncle Flips is located at:
          4715 Lankershim
          North Hollywood, CA 91602
          (818) 980-7427

          I'll be interested in hearing what you think. Good chowin'!
