We need your advice on the best BBQ in Kansas City or surrounding areas. We're flying into KC in the morning and will have time for a lunch before driving to Columbia. We will be staying in Independence on Friday night before flying back to Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon. It's a short trip, but I am really looking forward to Kansas City BBQ since we don't get good BBQ in LA.
What are your recommendations? So far, I have a list of Arthur Bryant's, Oklahoma Joe's, LC's, Bar-B-Q, and Smokin Guns BBQ.
If I'm coming from the airport and driving East, what would be the best place on the way?
Thanks in advance.
