OK, looks like some our local KC people and the long distance people are interested in KC style BBQ.
This has been mentioned.
And I have been to And it was old school BBQ wraped in brown paper, fries and everything.
Very good.
The BBQ vender last year at the park treated us real good and it was under five bucks a person after the show shut down on Saturday.
Ribs, pork steaks, or pulled pork with two sides of your choice.
Very good meal!
Hopefully Mongo or one of their group will chime in here and let us know if they will be back this year.
More ideas on the agenda is welcome.
Pretty sure the wife and I will be in the area, Thursday afternoon.

This first place is awesome....been there many times.
The Smokehouse and Jack Stacks in the old rail yard building are good too

There's also Porky's Blazin BBQ and the Gates family chains of BBQ restaurants.

My two cents for what it is worth, Arthur Bryant would not be my first choice, to crowded, and to much a fast food place, i like more leisurely dining. Food wagon ok with me.

The Smokehouse Gladstone Location is not too far from the park.
and pretty close to the Friday night Cruise we'll be having at the Number 9 Bar/Grill.

Just stumbled upon this, been off the forum for a few months. As a resident of KC, I can attest to Smokehouse. One of the best for a sit down restaurant experience. My favorite is Joe's Kansas City barbeque. It's takeout in a gas station, but well worth it.

One can't go wrong with Arthur Bryant's but it is more like a lunch counter/diner than restaurant.

There's a couple I haven't tried yet, Hawg Jaw Que & Brew, just north of the show.

and Smokin' Guns BBQ a bit south-southeast of the park.

I don't know if these are takeout, diners, or restaurants, fair warning.

So Stu, are you going to stop by and see some of the gang from near and far?

Having lived in the KC area for 65 years and having eaten BBQ almost as long, I wouldn't waste time or money on Arthur Bryant's. Smokehouse is the best sit down experience for good BBQ and they do very tender burnt ends. Jack Stack is good BBQ, but it is a little on the dry side (burnt ends). Joe's KC and Q39 are credited with being in the top 10 in the country, but it's a matter of taste. Joe's is a go through line, get food, eat, get out kind of place. Their fame is the Z-man, but I like the Smokie Joe (yesterday lunch). Q39 is a chef kind of place, but good. The couple of times I ate out Smoking Guns BBQ, it was decent, but ther isn't much sit down space and I don't know about hours. Go with one of those and you'll be happy.

I should be at the truck show tomorrow

Sorry, I was unable to make the show. Sounded like a good time. I had to be responsible husband and dad this weekend. It's been difficult to find the time to resurrect my 216.
