Here Are 10 BBQ Joints In Missouri That Will Leave Your Mouth Watering Uncontrollably
It’s pretty well known that Missouri has some of the
most beautiful hiking trails in the country. But every once in awhile, it’s nice to break from tradition and embark on a new adventure. Perhaps an adventure that revolves around smokey, delectable barbecue. That’s why we’ve scoured the state to bring you the most mouthwatering burnt ends, brisket, pulled pork and more. Try one and then try them all.
1. Wabash BBQ - Excelsior Springs
We start this list a little north of Kansas City in Excelsior Springs. In addition to great barbecue, there's an outdoor bar attached to Wabash BBQ where on certain nights, you can hear live bands perform Blues music.
2. Red Shanty - Higginsville
Red Shanty doesn't look like much, but this little roadside cafe packs a punch. Try their "Trinity" sandwich, which may actually be the holiest of them all.
3. Shotgun Pete's BBQ Shack - Columbia
By far the best barbecue you'll find in the college town of Columbia. While you wait, you may even be lucky to watch them grill your ribs on what they like to call, "The Gold Mine."
4. Lil' Mickey's Memphis Barbecue - St. Peters
We all know Missouri has the best barbecue, but there's no harm in pulling some inspiration from our neighbors in Tennessee. Head over to Mickey's to change up your pallet with Memphis-style barbecue.
5. Bogart's Smokehouse - St. Louis
Bogart's was actually ranked #1 for St. Louis restaurants among the TripAdvisor community. Don't believe us? Then head on over and try their ribs for yourself.
6. Hickory Log - Dexter
Mmm, mm, mm! Hickory is so good, people from all over the country order their barbecue sauce to curb their Missouri barbecue cravings.
7. Missouri Hick Bar-B-Que - Cuba
A great stop while driving down Route 66. Missouri Hick has an amazing set up, with seating on the inside and on the first and second floor decks.
8. City Butcher & Barbecue - Springfield
Moist on the inside and crispy bark on the outside. Is there any other way to perfect barbecue brisket?
9. Big R's BBQ - Joplin
When you want to find where the good barbecue is, you follow the locals. And this is exactly where they go in Joplin.
10. Arthur Bryant's - Kansas City
Bryant's has been around for quite some time and has pulled in some pretty famous customers, such as President Barack Obama and actor, Harrison Ford. It's consistently ranked among the best, if not the #1, barbecue in Kansas City.
When your state boasts the best barbecue in the world, it’s basically your civic duty to dive into the local delicacy from time to time.
