Oklahoma Joe's BBQ: Kansas City, KS

Don't be misled by the restaurant's Okie name: current owners Jeff and Joy Stehney smoke meats over slow-smoldering white oak in the finest Kansas City style. Spice-rubbed slabs of ribs, briskets with visible smoke rings, and a house specialty that nods to the Carolinas while preserving the Kansas obsession with smoke and fire: pulled pork. Order by the pound or pick up a combo-style sandwich such as the Okie Joe—piled high with chopped beef and pork. In keeping with America's roadhouse tradition, this barbecue joint is within a former gas station.
