A barbecue tour from KC through St Louis to Tennessee

Gates Ribs

On our move out from Boulder, Colorado to Athens, Georgia, my family and I traveled through prime barbecue territory – Kansas City, St. Louis, and Tennessee. I wrote about the restaurants we dined at in my guest post, Midwest BBQ Tour at Drive the Nation.

I think my overall favorite barbecue restaurant on our trip was Jack’s in Nashville, though the brisket at Gates in KC was to die for. (And to be fair, I think they were having an off day on the ribs. That's what some of the local folks we shared our ribs with thought.)

What’s your favorite barbecue restaurant?

    Wow these look great. Have to say this is something I do miss on our healthy eating but have been playing around with cauliflower poppers (tastes like chicken tenders) with BBQ sauce. Do you have any vege ideas for BBQ’s that I could pass along?
