    Hey everyone, my wife and I are headed to Kansas this weekend, the route takes us through Kansas City. Just wondering if anyone has any recommended stops for us?

    Thinking a BBQ place for lunch but I'd also like to check out any cool BBQ stores where I might find a gadget I have to have. We don't have too many options here in Iowa.

    Thanks!

    Josh

    For sure you need to go to this store. http://www.thekansascitybbqstore.com/ .  Best retail of BBQ supplies I have ever seen.  Loaded with sauces,rubs, and wood chips.  It is in Olathe, suburb to the south.

    Oklahoma Joes BBQ restaurant is just around the corner as well.  I ate at Rosedale BBQ two days ago and it was quite good.  Fiorellas Jack Stack is one of my favorites but it is a little more on the nice and sophisticated side of BBQ.  I like Gates BBQ for brisket.
     
     
  3. I ate at Smoking Guns in K C , wife and I say it was the best we ever had. They were on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

    Josh, evening....   “Lil Jake’s Eat it an’ Beat it”   I ate there twice in 2006, when it was a "take out" basically in downtown...  It has since moved.... Interesting article why it had to move attached....
