When Gates Ol’ Kentuck Bar-B-Q opened in Kansas City in 1946, there wasn’t as yet, a “Kansas City style” of barbecue. Gates and Arthur Bryant’s were templates for what would become that style and seed the growth of what today is recognized as one of the definitive regional profiles of barbecue in the US.

All the best to all y’all.
“Where there smoke, there’s MEAT!”
