Kansas City barbeque

http://economy.kansascity.com/?q=node/2070

New Orleans has its gumbo. Philadelphia has its cheesesteaks. Boston its seafood. And Kansas City’s culinary claim to fame? Barbecue of course!

And what barbecue, around 80 operations to choose from — spicy to sweet, bare bones dive to white tablecloth, heart of the city or afternoon drive in the country.

Here is the current list of establishments in and around KC. But barbecue fans beware, call ahead first to make sure they are open.

I guess I'm going to have to try Jack Stack again next time I'm up in KC. I've gone there a couple times and have been totally unimpressed both times (I mean IMHO Zarda is better than Jack Stack). But time and time again on these polls everyone goes on about it.. maybe I just picked bad days or something. I do have to admit I'm a fan of BBQ "joints", if there isn't a little funk it just never seems to taste as good.

I had some dry rub ribs at Neely's in Memphis, and I have to admit they were pretty darn good. Probably as good as any ribs I've had in KC.



I have to imagine that Texas brisket is probably pretty good, never had it though.

Zarda? Really Zarda?

Jack Stack and Zarda are about as close in quality as Hershey's chocolate is to fine Swiss chocolate.

I can honestly say it was a transcendent experience. The 'burnt' portions were crispy like when you render the fat in good bacon. The meat was literally falling off the bone, and even the bones were so slow smoked that I could crack them in half with my teeth and scoop out the marrow. It didn't have any particular sauce/rub flavorings, just intense INTENSE smokiness, with a perfect mix of crispy and tender throughout the meat, and did I mention MARROW?

It was one experience from one restaurant in a chain, but it was soooo much better than I had any expectations.
That's ridiculously overcooked...

I'm just sayin'... Zarda is at the bottom of my KC BBQ ranking, the only reason I've ever ate there is that there was one right down the street from my Mom's house in Blue Springs. But when I've ate at Jack Stack the food was not any better than what I've had at Zarda. The two times I've ate a Jack Stack I had ribs once and brisket the other.

Any opinion you have on food is now null and void, please remove yourself from this thread.

Has anyone tried Q39 yet? New BBQ joint on 39th St.

Quote:
A cowpoke can become a cattle baron — but it isn't easy.

Rob Magee was something of a cattle baron before he opted for the cowpoke life. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Magee spent a long career on the culinary side of the hotel business, working for international chains such as Westin and Hilton. Then, after more than a decade as executive chef for the Hilton Kansas City Airport property, he hit the smoke-and-brisket circuit in 2002. His Munchin' Hogs team would go on to great things in competition barbecue — great enough to herd Magee back to the restaurant ranch. He's now chef and co–owner of the two–month–old Q39.

Magee didn't need the hassle or the potential heartbreak of a brick–and–mortar operation. And KC isn't hurting for barbecue. But Q39 lives up to Magee's pitmaster reputation — it's one of the best new barbecue joints to open in the metro in a long time.

[...]


The simple stuff is supposed to be the best, and here, it is. The beef brisket is gorgeously tender, the burnt ends cut on the bias instead of into blocky little cubes (an epiphany, baby), the spare ribs meaty and not at all dry or overcooked. And the pulled pork I craved? Moist and flavorful from its soak in an apple brine.

Not every simplicity is as sublime as the best of the meat. The fries may be house–cut, but the ones I sampled were too salty. And I detested the potato salad, its spuds unappealingly al dente. I found an antidote in the creamy macaroni and cheese: cavatappi noodles blanketed in a rich cheese sauce. (That's why you don't bother with the fondue.)

Sauce isn't mild here, but it's not overpowering, either, with the "zesty" version taking the most bite and the "classic" boasting a subtler but still distinctive fire. A chipotle take isn't the tongue–burner I hoped it would be, but at least it — like every other sauce here — avoids sweetness.

The burgers, made with ground brisket and Black Angus beef, are expensive but very good. A server one day talked me into trying the burnt–end burger, and I'm glad; the one I ate was excellent. You're better off attacking it with a knife and a fork, the better to savor a jumble of spicy pickle slaw on top of the meat. The signature slaw here is a creamy concoction made with Granny Smith apples and onions; it's a fine complement to the spicier offerings, such as a barbecued chicken sandwich topped with chipotle mayo, or the jumbo chicken wings whose shiny glaze betrays a searing note behind the first bite.

The service is attentive and professional, but when the dining room is really busy, the crew scurries around at a near sprint, sometimes bumping into tables or even patrons in their unbridled zeal. With all that sauce in all that handsome crockery, the risks are clear.

The desserts are made in–house, and I give high marks to the hot apple crumble and the creamy cheesecake. I'm resistant to the trend of sugar–dusted doughnuts as an after–dinner dolce, but the golfball–sized spheres at Q39 are both soft and slightly chewy and reach a state approaching grandeur when dipped in the accompanying chocolate and raspberry sauces.

I'm also seeing good press about Slap's (another new place).

I live right down the street, have heard good things, but haven’t tried it yet – it looks overpriced. Unless I’m missing something on the menu, its $12-15 for a sandwich and side. $4 for a single slider.
