Best of Kansas City: 10 years of the smokin’ best barbecue

Fiorella’s Jack Stack is still a contender

​On the eve of The Pitch‘s 2010 “Best of Kansas City” issue next week, we thought it would be entertaining and revealing to take a backward glance at some of our past winners. Who’s still on top? Which restaurants and bakeries had their 15 minutes of fame and are barely remembered today?

As Kansas City’s signature dish, barbecue has been, of course, a popular feature of our yearly “Best of Kansas City” issue. And while we’ve frequently honored the iconic smoke shacks — Arthur Bryant’s, Gates Barbecue, Rosedale Barbecue and others — the celebratory issue is also a good place to give kudos to newer contenders.
