After 3 amazing weeks of Kansas City BBQ the KCFoodGuys are ready to announce our KC BBQ Champion and the winner of the People’s Choice bracket below, and like last year our best meals were served in the final matchup. First up was our bracket final – Q39 vs S.L.A.P.’s We’ll brake it down like this:
- Sides – S.L.A.P.’s
- Brisket – Q39 thick tender and tasty
- Burnt Ends – S.L.A.P.’s Q39 had a bit more flavor but S.L.A.P.’s won with bigger & more tender ends
- Ribs – It was a one two photo finish but S.L.A.P.’s took the prize.
Both Q39 & S.L.A.P.’s have some of the meatiest ribs in town and our bones end up bare as could be. So with that we are proud to announce S.L.A.P.’s as the KCFoodGuys KC BBQ Champion.
Next comes the People’s Choice which gives S.L.A.P.’s a unanimous decision, and Kansas City a new KCFoodGuys.com People’s Choice Champion and it wasn’t even close. The People have spoken and named S.L.A.P.’s as their 2017 Kansas City BBQ Champion. Congratulations S.L.A.P.’s our meal was amazing and you beat out some world class competitors.

We love SLAPS ribs and eat there every time we come to KC We live in Springfield, MO and know Mike and Joe personally and two nicer fellows can[t be found.

Good stuff. Did you require that people visit the restaurant and try the food before voting? Just curious. I’m on a quest to visit every barbecue restaurant in Kansas City to find the best barbecue. Joe’s BBQ Blog: http://olathecat.blogspot.com
