Hi there folks.


I may have posted this in the wrong section (Road Trips) as I haven't had a single response from any of you Kansas City Guys and Gals but there must be loads of you out there??????


Any Help????



Hi Guys


Just thought I would introduce myself to you all at SMF. I am from the UK, Sunderland actually which is on the North East coast just down the road from Scotland (75 Miles). A coastline full of medieval castles, in fact St Peters Church in my town dates to 674 AD


I am currently on a crusade to create a true north east UK and Scottish delicacy known as the "Savaloy". This is a smoked pork sausage that has long since been lost to the modern processing methods such as now having pink rubbery skins (deep fried in Scotland) or skins dyed with brown food colouring to look like they have been smoked. They are not smoked and now include smoke liquid or smoke powder to the seasoning to give its "Smokey Quality" ?????????? What a travesty. So I am hooked on Smoking, curing, Grilling and BBQ so I am hoping you guys can give me all the tips to be as good as yourselves.


By the way I am coming to the American Royal in October for a week with my son, hes 30 now and got the BBQ bug. I am not a stranger to the US having worked there but I do not know KC MO at all. So If there are any of you kind people in Kansas City MO willing to show us around the best foodie joints or any comp teams ( we are doing the judges course) that could let us see from the inside I will gladly buy you a beer or three. We got a car so wont be leaning on anyone and will be stopping in Lees Summit.


Thanks for looking and hopefully hear from you soon.

Thanks for the welcome but I'm not building anything.


I'm calling out to any Kansas City Q'ers out there to help a couple of UK guys find their way around KC

Hi kiska, I live in the Kansas city,Mo area and wanted to welcome. What kind of food are you looking for? Probably not bbq since you will be at the royal.

Hi thanks for the reply.
Bbq will obviosly focus and we were looking for any local hidden gems to try but as is the case we will no doubt have had a belly full of Bbq so other food treats would be good. mexican or a good steak house sushi or asian would be good

Well I would definitely recommend GoJo's Japanese steak house. They really don't do sushi butt steak,chicken and shrimp are excellent. All cooked in front of you. Then There is several steak houses. Hereford House,Longhorne Steakhouse,Texas Road house but Hereford House is the one that's not a chain restaurant. Strictly Kcmo. On the country club plaza there lots of restaurants but Buca De Pepo or we call it Bucas has excellent Italian. Stroud's is known for down home cooking known for cast iron skillet fried chicken. I would recommend the North Kc location. Very pretty atmosphere. Cheesecake Factory is another favorite down on the country club plaza.If I think of more I'll post. But I wouldn't pass up GoJo's.
