Andrew Zimmern is a big fan of Kansas City BBQ. While in town last month to shoot an episode of his Travel Channel show “Bizarre Foods,” Zimmern chowed down on burnt ends at Q39, Joe’s Kansas City, and LC’s Bar-B-Q. Zimmern and his production team also shot segments for the meat-centric episode, which airs later this year, at the Local Pig in Westport. There, Zimmern dined on pig spleen prepared by chef/owner Alex Pope.
While on a break from shooting scenes at the Local Pig, Zimmern said that Kansas City’s barbeque scene keeps getting better.
“For my taste, Kansas City was always the best barbeque city in America,” Zimmern said. Check out the video to see why Zimmern says Kansas City “is back and better than ever.”
