When you think of barbeque, you’re probably imagining Kansas City style barbeque. It’s characterized by its thick, sweet sauce that coats all of Kansas City style barbeque dishes from ribs and steak tips to pit beans. This style is different from Memphis, the Carolinas, and Texas primarily because the sauce is sweet more than anything else. You’ll be able to find Kansas City style barbeque sauce in any grocery store and you can probably pick up a Kansas City style premade rib rub as well if you want to skip making your own. These ribs are classic, fall of the bone, finger-licking good.
