Kansas City BBQ
Sunday, January 28th, 2:30 pm Central Time via Zoom
(3:30 ET, 1:30 Mountain, 12:30 Pacific, 8:30 GMT)


Are you attending the AG in Kansas City this year? Of course, you are! And once you’re in town you are going to want to eat some BBQ. But where should you go? And what should you eat?

Better get schooled first because there are over 100 places to eat BBQ in Kansas City. Most are joints, but there are a few restaurants (they have tablecloths!) and at least one has a classically trained chef.

We’re talking about burnt ends, brisket, ribs, pulled pork, sausage, chicken, turkey. Oh mama!

And the sides! You haven’t lived until you’ve had some cheesy corn or BBQ baked beans with burnt ends. Plus, potato salad, coleslaw, mac ‘n cheese, seasoned fries, sweet potato fries and my favorite, jumbo onion rings.

Guiding you on this BBQ journey is Jill Wendholt Silva, Kansas City’s James Beard award-winning food editor and writer. She will discuss the history of BBQ in Kansas City, the different styles of BBQ (wait, what, there are different styles?), and maybe, just maybe, we’ll discuss some of the best places in town to chow down. But bring your napkins because it’s going to get messy!
