There are two cities in the United States that seem to share top honors for barbeque meats, Memphis, Tennessee, and Kansas City, Missouri. Other towns, like ours, have locally famous places but those two are considered the top rank. I don't really understand it. Mrs. C and I eat little red meat these days and I have a strong distaste for all smoked foods. To each their own. In Kansas City it is taken so seriously that the cuisine has its own learned society.
It's Independence Day in this country. Many of us fear for the future of our democracy.
