The Kansas City metropolitan area is renowned for barbecue. Kansas City, Missouri, has more than 100 barbecue restaurants. The area is home to several large, well attended barbecue cooking contests. Kansas City barbecue refers to the specific style of slow smoked meat that evolved from the pit of Henry Perry in the early 1900s in Kansas City, Missouri. Kansas City barbecue is slow smoked over a variety of woods and then covered with a thick tomato- and molasses-based sauce.
We hope you can join us during the Heartland Conference for the Tuesday night no-host outing to our favorite barbecue joint.
