Best Kansas City BBQ Sauces

The following list of “The Best Kansas City BBQ Sauces” represents the personal barbeque sauce preferences of Nels Lindahl as of June 14, 2009. Moving from Kansas City to Colorado Springs has provided an ideal environment to research Kansas City BBQ sauces. For consideration in this unscientific study of personal taste preferences, the restaurant has to be located in Kansas City and commercially bottle the sauce for distribution. Transportation of each bottle of sauce involved an automobile trip from Kansas City to Colorado Springs.

  1. Hayward’s Pit Bar-B-Que sauce
  2. Fiorella’s Jack Stack barbeque‎ sauce
  3. Zarda BBQ sauce
  4. Gates Bar-BQ sauce
  5. KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce

At some point, all of the BBQ sauce research will probably result in the creation of a unique homebrewed sauce. The homemade sauce will include only organic ingredients without any prepackaged components.
