Raves, faves for Kansas City BBQ

July 05, 2009

It was delightful to see Catharine Hamm's well-informed, well-considered write-up about barbecue in Kansas City ["Kansas City BBQ," June 28]. I try to make it back to K.C. every year or two, just for the barbecue and to watch the now-pitiful Royals. I have to have Arthur Bryant's, so that usually leaves room for only one other place in my itinerary. Last time it was Oklahoma Joe's. But five in 36 hours? I bow to Hamm, out of respect.

My head sweats every time I eat spicy food; it even occurs when I read an article like Hamm's. I wasted three napkins while reading it. I still can't find barbecue in L.A. that's worth consuming.

My wife and I are Angeleno transplants in Overland Park, Kan., and lament the lack of truly great barbecue here in cow town despite the reputation of K.C. barbecue.

There is no better barbecue than Dr. Hogly Wogly's Tyler Texas BBQ in Van Nuys. When we visit, we make a beeline there for awesome barbecue. Jack Stack, Oklahoma Joe's and others don't come close to what you have in Van Nuys. Please do not send unsuspecting Angelenos to Kansas.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Hamm's article on Kansas City barbecue. We're originally from Kansas City and relished meals at Bryant's, Gates and Rosedale Barbecue. The next time I return "home" (we moved to California in 1976), Jack Stack and Brobecks are on my list of "must do's."
