America's Best Barbecue

by Jane and Michael Stern


Many native sons believe Kansas City barbecue is the best anywhere because of its broad-spectrum appeal: It includes pork ribs, beef brisket, hot sausage, and smoked mutton, plus a sauce as complex as an Indian curry. LC's lends good evidence to that proposition. All the meats are pit-cooked to perfection, and the specialties include burnt ends (pictured). Also known as brownies, burnt ends are the crisp, chewy, extra-luscious nuggets of meat cut from the outside edges of smoked brisket. Heavy with protein satisfaction and radiant with hickory smoke, some pieces are laced with obscenely delicious amounts of fat. There are both chewy chunks and crunchy nuggets, and while a few tips might taste dry all by themselves, LC's excellent sauce makes them sing.
