Kansas City Recipes
Kansas City Spices

For the last leg of Chasing BBQ, we head to Kansas City where the sauce is sweet and sticky and burnt ends and pulled pork are done right. That tomato and molasses-based sauce is a big part of what defines KC-style barbecue, and they slather it all kinds of proteins. KC is also great at dishing up creative sides, from potato casserole to apple slaw, the BBQ pros here aren't afraid to experiment.

Barbecue Tips

'Cue Tip #2: Master Your Fire

"Before you can master barbecuing you need to master fire building and fire management. Building proper fires takes practice. You’ll know you are on the right path when your fires produce a clean, white, wispy smoke rather than a big, billowy cloud of smoke."

Tim Rattray – Pitmaster and Co-Owner of The Granary “Cue & Brew, San Antonio, TX

PRIME Barbecue: Wendell, NC

I'm telling you right now, if you love BBQ, you wish you were me today! Christopher Prieto of PRIME Barbecue put out some major league, grade A 'cue today. We spent hours talking spices, barbecue and life. What a truly great day. I have lots to say about this, but not enough time to do it tonight. I'll post in the coming days more about our convo. Thanks to Andrew and Albert too! #‎chasingbbq
