Joined by the whole of Kansas City, our thoughts and prayers go out to JJ's staff, family and customers. A tragic loss for the city.
We're thinking about doing a KC BBQ sauce comparison soon, investigating why one tastes so different from the other, what kind of dishes it goes with best, etc. So aside from obvious #BBQ masters like Oklahoma Joe's BBQ, Gates Bar-B-Q, Arthur Bryants Jack Stack Barbecue and so on - who are the Kansas City great unknowns that should be included?
Congrats to Colby Garrelts, who won the James Beard Award for Best Chef-Midwest tonight. After 7 annual nominations, it's great to see him recognized for his talents. Kudos to Colby, Megan Garrelts and the bluestem/Rye team.
