    Best BBQ in Kansas City?

    So I'm going to be traveling for work in a couple of weeks, and my travels will take me through KC on the way out and back. So I have 2 chances to stop and eat the world's greatest BBQ. The question is, where to go? I've only been to Jack Stack, and thought it was outstanding.

    What say you, fellow Fanatics? What's your favorite BBQ joint in KC?

    Re: Best BBQ in Kansas City?

    The obvious one is Oklahoma Joe's... it's a must do...

    Some other lesser known are Bates City and Smokin' Guns...Bates is pretty darn good.

    People will throw out Gates, Arthur Bryants, Haywards...I don't really like any of those...but BBQ is really a personal preference so you might like them.

    You have to do Oklahoma Joe's though.

    From that list
    1. OKie Joe's
    2. Jack Stack
    3. Arthur Bryant's
    4. gates (shouldn't have made the list)

    Other good ones are LC's BBQ, BB's BBQ, RJ's BBQ, Smokehouse BBQ, & Haywards Pit BBQ.

    Re: Best BBQ in Kansas City?

    Only time I've eaten BBQ while in KC was this past year during game at Arrowhead and we ate and Jack Stack... Place was simply amazing and you get a ton of food! That being said I am not voting as I can't give a fair shot to the other places since I haven't tried them.

    That's how I would do it. Go to OJ's and because I'm nice, I'll also tell you to order a carryout of a: z-man, spicy slaw, and fries. If you try and just go and eat there, sometimes the lines can be a half hour easy.

    OK Joe's is amazing, def. the best KC has to offer.

    Can't go wrong with the other 3 either. My favorite out of the other three is Gates because I love their burnt ends and they do them better than the other two in my opinion.

    There's got to be 2 or 3 threads that have covered this extensively over the last 2 years.

    Oklahoma Joe's, hands down. Get the Z-man (brisket sandwich topped with provolone and fried onion rings) They also have the best damn fries, but plan to be in the bathroom within 45 minutes of consuming.

    Re: Best BBQ in Kansas City?

    It's not really fair to have to pick one. I like different things at different places. Yes the Z man is great at Oklahoma Joe's, burnt ends are best for me at Arthur Bryant's, Gates has great burnt ends also and brisket. Now I want to road trip!

    I love living in South Carolina just because of the BBQ that puts everywhere else to shame

    Memphis and Kansas City disagree.

    Jack Stack nudges out Okie Joe's on the basis that they offer beef ribs.
