My favorite is Lexington BBQ, a restaurant 10 minutes from where I live. Locals know it as Honey Monks, a combination of the owners' names.

There's at least 20 different restaurants within 10 miles that specialize in BBQ.
Pork is king in my area, with chicken a close second. There's very little beef BBQ here.

Ahem....there is more to Q than pork. But IHMO, BBQ is like Italian Food. It's all good.

Kansas City BBQ is typically beef, and uses a dry rub when smoking. Some use sweeter sauces, and some more vinegar based.

When in Kansas City, may I suggest, Gates and Sons (I like the Linwood and Main location or Paseo location just east of the Country Club Plaza) , Arthur Bryant's (I like their original location on Brooklyn Ave by the former stadium), and Oklahoma Joe's (their original KC location is in Roeland Park but it is crowded. 119th and Roe location is just as good and has better parking and a larger sit down dining room.)

Others of note are Smokin' Guns in North Kansas City, (great smoked cheesy potatoes), Jack Stack (a bit upscale but very good), and Woodyard in Merriam.

And if you are passing through Colorado on your way, in Frisco, try Q-For-You. Started by some folks from Kansas City. And there is camping I believe on Lake Dillon. Frisco is on I-70 about 45 minutes or so before the Denver metro.

And remember....if there isn't a pile of wood out back, then it isn't Bar-B Q!

Can't argue with the above. It's true!

It amazes me how many people have such strong opinions about Q.
About the same as with hitches, tow vehicles, and tires.

I would probably start of end in Texas, for some brisket. Then head north for some messy KC style spares, then curl east for some dry rub in Memphis, then head on east for some Carolina Mustard sauce.

Best restaurant barbecue I ever had was at Blues City Café, Beale Street, Memphis, TN. With the added benefit of live (blues) music while you eat.

Best homemade barbecue, Cochon de Lait just about anywhere they throw a party in Cajun country! Again with the benefit of live (zydeco) music while you eat.

Years ago, we went to New York City for our honeymoon. We visited Rockefeller Center for a drink. It was just before the 4th of July and there was an advertisement for a barbecue dinner. The table tent card read "Come have "Q." That is what they call barbecue in the South."

Both my wife and I grew up in the South; my wife in central Texas not far from Lockhart and myself in northeastern Arkansas not far from Memphis. We laughed and laughed at the anyone calling barbecue "Q". Anyone that knows what this true delicacy is all about, the cooking method or the food outcome, would not disrespect it by shortening to a single letter...

My family had barbecue for our Christmas dinner; pork ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork and wild Arkansas-taken duck.

Charles Vergo's Rendezvous, Memphis, TN - pork ribs
Coopers Old Time BBQ, Llano, TX - pork chop

Since moving to Chicago, we get our local barbecue fix at Smoque. Their ribs are inspired by the Memphis style and their sausage is from Rudy's in Texas. This place is BYOB.

Seems many barbecue places we visit have some interesting nuances. Many are BYOB, several have no plates, and some are cash only. All places I've been do seem to encourage finger licking.

I still like coleslaw on my pulled pork sandwiches. My wife tends to think that is strange.

I do like your idea of a bbq tour. Next to a fly fishing tour, I could not think of another better idea. Please keep us updated if you should take on this adventure.

And to quote John Hiatt (singer/songwriter) from "Memphis in the Meantime"...


At least we can get ourselves a decent meal down at the Rendezvous!

There is a high correlation between Bar-B-Q and great music towns.

32 years catering in Memphis and I still believe for pulled pork BBQ Payne's on Lamar wins hands down.
