One night in Kansas City, MO and interested in BBQ

charmedgirl | Dec 5, 2008 11:46 AM

Hi hounds,

I will be in Kansas City, MO for one night (and one night only!) this coming Monday, and I was hoping to try some BBQ while I am there. I am by no means a BBQ expert. I can't say I know anything about all the different ways it's done (wet, dry, rubbed, smoked,...), but I can say I know I love to eat it! So I am just looking for a place serving good food, not too too far from my hotel, where a petite, alone 20 something girl wouldn't feel strange licking her fingers with a plate of meat sitting in front of her.

My research turned up the following options: Jack Stack BBQ, Arthur Bryant, LC, Oklahoma Joe's and Danny Edwards. Based on location alone (I am staying near the airport), I narrowed the options to Jack Stack (Freight House), Arthur Bryant and Danny Edwards. Amongst those three, and based on my criteria as described above, what do you all recommend? Or is there another place I should consider?

Thanks in advance for the help. I promise to pay it forward if any of y'all are ever in Baltimore.
