Some folks consider Kansas City the epicenter of American BBQ. Fans of South Carolina Mustard sauce, Carolina Vinegar Sauce, and Texas Sauce would surely beg to differ. KC has a good argument. Kansas City BBQ Sauce is one of the most popular off the shelf sauces in grocery stores and the Kansas City Barbecue Society is the largest and most influential sanctioning organizations in existence.
Mainstream America loves a super sweet smokey thick sauce and that’s exactly what Kansas City, Mo specializes in. The style of sauce has been commercialized under the brand KC Masterpiece. A man child psychologist named Rich Davis developed the recipe in 1977 originally with only five ingredients. Since then it has been purchased by Kingsford and has become one of the top selling barbecue sauces in the Nation.
Our version of Kansas City sauce has that same deep rich tomato undertone with a sweet smokey finish. It’s the perfect sauce for both chicken and pork as it literally defines the phrase “sticks to your ribs.”
