I'm not sure if I've ever posted this article before, but it's one that I will cite for the rest of my life. As a native of Kansas City, I take pride in a few specific things about my corner of the world - Kansas Jayhawk basketball, fountains (Kansas City has more fountains than any city in the world besides Rome), and barbeque. There are those in other parts of the country (Texas, Memphis, the Carolinas) that accurately claim to have good barbeque. However, Kansas City is widely regarded as the barbeque capital of the world. Anthony Bourdain, world-renowned food critic, released his list of "13 Places To Eat Before You Die" a few years ago. The only barbeque place to make the list was my favorite joint in Kansas City - Oklahoma Joe's. Bourdain says of Oklahoma Joe's, "It's the best BBQ in Kansas City, which makes it the best BBQ in the world." I couldn't agree more.
