The long awaited, first cookbook from one of this most successful barbecue joints in the country, Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que.
In Kansas City, where barbecue is a way of life, it is understood that smoke has mystical properties. Smoke has the power to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. It can transform the least desirable cuts of meat into the most delectable. It can even transform a neighbourhood corner gas station into one of the most popular restaurants on the planet.
Step inside the world of some of the best barbecue in the country. Author and owner, Jeff Stehney, attended his first barbecue competition in 1990 and he was hooked. He asked a few friends to form a competition team, Slaughterhouse Five, that would go on to win many of the most prestigious competitions across the country over the next several years. Jeff decided to take it one step further and went into business with Joe Don Davidson and the first Oklahoma Joe's opened in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1996. Their second location, an iconic gas station in Kansas City, opened because it was located close to Jeff and Joy's home. In 1997 Jeff and Joy became the sole owners and developed Joe's into one of the most successful restaurants in the country. With three locations in Kansas, you can't go to Joe's without expecting to stand in line; It is always worth the wait. For the first time, their storied history and 65 of their famous Joe's recipes are captured in one fantastic book.
Their barbecue is nothing short of perfection, everytime. As Jeff recalls, “I’m reminded of the importance of what we do here, and our role in Kansas City’s barbecue tradition, every morning when I arrive at the restaurant and smell that wonderful smoke coming out of our smokers. After all these years, it’s still magical.”
"Consistently ranked among the nation's top BBQ joints, this smokehouse epitomizes the Kansas City style: slow-smoked meats slathered in a thick, sweet, tomato-and-molasses-based sauce." (Emily Saladino and Lauren Rothman, New York Post)
