Road Trippin' Kansas City Gates Bar B.Q.
KANSAS CITY, MO (CBS2/FOX28) Chicago is the Windy City, New York The Big Apple, Denver Mile High and Seattle The Emerald City, but when you turn south on Interstate 35 out of Des Moines you wont see any official signage for the true title of the next big city in your path. Kansas City has been, is now and maybe always will be the Barbeque Capital of the World!
A cattle town from the start, the raw materials were always there, but what KC chefs can do with the smoky deliciousness of beef, ham, turkey and a heavenly menu item called burnt ends puts almost every impersonator to shame. When you open the door on an authentic barbeque pit in Kansas City, where hickory wood is stacked to the ceiling waiting to work its magic and the smoke envelops your senses, you can taste the ribs you see sizzling inside when youre still standing six feet away. Thats before anyone even offers you your choice of barbeque sauce! There are several world class barbeque stops in KC, from mom and pop stands to almost swanky. On this ROAD TRIPPIN adventure we take you to one of the hometown favorites, Gates Bar-B-Q.
