Exploration of the legendary Kansas City Style Barbeque
Kansas City style, hickory smoked barbeque is the stuff of legend. Down home fare includes white bread, beans, onion rings, fries, and the local delicacy Burnt ends.
The incredibly delectable burnt ends could easily make a meat eater out of an ardent vegan.
Strip mall and tiny storefront barbeque joints are dotted across the city.
Some of the legends are utterly unpretentious but it’s standing room only at lunchtime and for sure when the Chiefs or Royals are playing home games.
The city’s love affair with barbeque joints has been going on for decades.
Afterwards we’ll explore the other end of the spectrum at upscale, Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbeque’s Freight House location where they do a gang buster business seven days a week.
