This is a great article with a comprehensive look at KC's bbq scene from its history to modern day. There seems to be lots of threads about KC bbq here, so I thought I would post this.

I'm glad it makes the distinction that what many places sell as "burnt ends" aren't actually true burnt ends.

Great shoutout to Bob and Denise at RJ's, also.

I miss me some KC BBQ. I'm so used to loading up meat with sauce that TX BBQ tastes really dry to me.

It's kind of funny to me that sweet sauces are now considered quintessential KC-style outside the region, since I dislike sweet sauce and never use it.

It's especially funny given that the historic (and best) KC sauces are not sweet at all.

Agree. In true American fashion, though, add a way over the top amount of sweetener to all things, gain public adulation.

Asian food suffered said fate even more than BBQ. Sigh.

The perfect BBQ sauce should have a hint of sweetness and smokiness. The night of the living sauce at Joe's is my favorite. It's sweet, but not super sweet, and has the spicy level I love.
