Dueling Barbeques

Kansas City, Memphis, North Carolina, Texas: grillmasters nationwide claim that their style alone is true barbeque.

Barbeque: The Lifestyle

Store-bought sauces are great in a pinch, but barbeque can be so much more. Transform your summer cookouts into a barbeque education. Eat your way across the USA without leaving your backyard.

Kansas City

Kansas City barbeque is characterized by its tomato-based sauce. Vinegar, pepper, sugar, molasses, and secret spices round it out.


Memphis is known for its ribs, whether they're grilled with a dry rub or basted with a sweet, tangy sauce.

North & South Carolina

In the Carolinas the barbeque meat is pork, and the barbeque sauces are thin and vinegary. Some regions add ketchup, others mustard.


In Texas, barbeque means beef. Brisket is cooked over a smoky mesquite or hickory fire and served with a spicy sauce.
