What is Kansas City’s best barbecue? Vote in our bracket #Kansas #Citys #barbecue #Vote #bracket Welcome to GistFeed

Out-of-town pundits are always putting together lists proclaiming Kansas City’s best barbecue restaurants.

Just this month alone, Food & Wine magazine picked the top eight barbecues, and digital news site Stacker named the 29 best spots based on TripAdvisor reviews.

But really, who knows Kansas City barbecue better than Kansas Citians? In that spirit, a of couple weeks ago we asked you to nominate your favorite barbecue restaurants, and we heard from plenty of you, extolling the “fantastic,” “amazing,” “best anywhere” meat, sauce and sides.

But which one is really the best? We gathered the 16 restaurants that pulled in the most nominations from readers and cooked up our 2022 Kansas City Barbecue Bracket.

This week we’re starting with the Savory 16 for you to vote on. Week by week, we’ll narrow it down to a Delicious 8, Flavorful 4, Tasty 2 and then The Winner.

For this round, you have until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30, to vote.

Choose your favorite below. Can’t see the bracket? Click here to vote.
