From my favorite BBQ chef, you’re welcome:


I have always wondered if the smell of BBQ is similar to what a burnt offering would have smelt like.... and if so, and it is a “pleasing aroma” to God.... and we are made in His image.... is our love for BBQ is based in theology?

Perhaps it is the way it is rendered as "burnt" in English, but I imagined for a while a putrid smell of completely burnt meat. Reflecting on that now, it makes more sense that the aroma would be a wonderful smell. Surely we are reflections of our creator, and enjoying wonderful smells is a part of that.

Well, you poor deprived soul, if that's your favorite... I am extremely blessed to live in, by international acclaim, the BBQ capitol of the world. I've been here about eight years and have tried out a few dozen cribs. It's an ongoing labor of love. So far I'd have to say my favorite is Jack Stack's BBQ Prime Rib

My wife and I have been discussing a road trip through the great BBQ and bourbon states, KC is on the list for sure.

While Chicago is hardly known for BBQ, there was one restaurant we found in the suburbs called Smoque that (I believe) was started by KC natives. It was some of the best food I have ever put in my mouth. Even the coleslaw was other-worldly.

#2 - so the first place loser... ;)

Depends I suppose on what you like. Generally speaking...

KC style BBQ often has the sauce on it while it smokes, giving it a more charred bark - hence the KC signature burnt ends (from the brisket). Sauce tends to be sweet to tangy (with more slathered on when served)

Memphis style BBQ is primarily cooked with a dry rub, with a somewhat spicier sauce often served on the side.

Of course both types are readily available in either place.

Ya'll have good BBQ down Texas way too.

They usually use the wrong animal in Texas - I'm from the south, and barbeque means pig. With goat being a second choice.

I did eat Burnt Ends at some famous place in Kansas City while on a business trip.

Definitely in my top 10, though their Kansas-side location isn't as good

Honestly, I love KC, Memphis, and Texas style BBQ. All three are unique and delicious.

Yes, it's hard to go wrong! And a 4th style would be Carolina - but that's generally movin' a little too far east for them to really compete with the TRUE western varieties... And sometimes you do have to pick a winner, and, well...

Oh man, how could I forget Carolina? Mop and yellow mustard sauces - extraordinary. If you make me pick one, I'd go Texas; tough to beat the heat.
