ST. LOUIS – A lot of people trust the Food Network for recipes, restaurant recommendations, and entertainment. Barbecue is often a competition, and one of the most popular and beloved cuisines in the United States. So, many people want to know which place in their state was honored in the “50 States of Barbecue” list.

The Kansas City area’s Q39 was chosen as Missouri’s best barbecue joint. Sara Ventiera writes that the late chef and pitmaster Rob Magee‘s passion for learning and practicing the art of barbecue is what sets Q39 apart from other restaurants. He graduated from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America and went to work for Hilton as an executive chef. He then got into competitive BBQ and started racking up awards. There are now crowds of people who line up for the food that is made daily, from scratch, in the open kitchen. She says that you should arrive early and expect to wait. It is worth it.

Kansas City is among the most popular regions for barbecue in the United States. Other distinct styles are found in Texas, and the Carolinas. Ultimately, the best barbecue restaurant in each state is a matter of personal preference and can depend on factors such as the type of meat being served, the cooking method used, and the sauces and rubs that are applied.
