A Few Notes on Kansas

A-Tooch recently spent a few days on her last first trip to Kansas. The lack of excitement for the trip was seriously increased when someone dropped the hint that Kansas is actually famous for BBQ. YUM.

The highlight of the trip was dinner at Jack Stack BBQ in Kansas City (Missouri, not Kansas City, Kansas, which is nearby. Yes, very confusing.) At Jack Stack, under $30 will get you a big honkin’ set of prime beef ribs like these guys:

I ordered the equally tasty burnt ends and doused them with some of the delicious Jack Stack recipe BBQ sauce. The burnt ends were served with the classic slice of white bread, pickles and cheesy potato bake side — basically scalloped potatoes with a little extra cream/cheese/all the bad stuff. So yum.

There really is no place like home, though, and I was anxious to get back to good ol’ NYC. After nearly leaving Kansas untouched, I of course got caught in a tornado warning and had to stow away in the basement of a corporate office for two hours. I snagged my own bottle of Jack Stack BBQ sauce to take home but sadly, it was confiscated from my carry on by Kansas City Airport security. Hmmpf.
