I'm from Texas I was up in Missouri Memorial Day weekend is it one of the best barbeque places at least in Rural Missouri or is there even better places especially on the I-44 corridor. I have been to a good place close to Six Flags Saint Louis I its called Super Smokers it is good but Missouri hick was a lot better. I know about the rivalry of Barbeque KC versus STL in Texas we have the rivalry Hill Country Austin area versus East Texas Barbeque which can be various places in Rural East Texas or parts of Dallas Fort Worth area.

I have never eaten at Missouri Hick, although I have been through Cuba a bunch as I drive up Hwy 19 from I-44 to visit family. Super Smokers makes good BBQ. Bandanna's makes decent BBQ as well, but I think the crown has to go to Jack Stack in Kansas City, although Joe's (formerly Oklahoma Joe's, now Joe's Kansas City) makes some pretty darned good BBQ for a gas station. Gates is pretty good too but a little saltier than I would prefer. I have yet to go into Arthur Bryant's but that is on the list of Things to Do when I visit the in-laws in the future.

Personally, my favorite barbecue is what I make with my old Char Griller Smoker Pro that I mildly modified (see smoking-meat.com) and spend about five hours, a half a bag of charcoal, and a few "tasty beverages" preparing. I had to relocate out of MO for a few years and when you move to somewhere where "barbecue" means "sloppy joe" and there is one sort-of actual barbecue place in a city of close to 200,000, you learn to hone your own barbecuing skills real quick because if you don't make it, you simply can't get it. You'd bet your bottom dollar when you fire up a smoker in an area where people have never done that, that you get a LOT of attention as they wonder what the heck that (not really) southern guy is doing out there on his grill for hours, as he should have been done a long time ago, but DAMN that smells good...

Barbecue, bowling, fishing, beer, sex. All things you can't use the word "bad" with.

D. Rowes in Columbia has the best brisket I've had (that hasn't come out of my smoker).

Like Flyover Country, I'm in an area where "barbecue" is made in a crock pot. It ain't really barbecue. You learn quick. I make a Texas brisket, low and slow, rubbed and mopped. No sauce, of course.
