KC BBQ Road Trip!

If you REALLY love barbeque, then we hope you'll join us on our continuous BBQ Road Trips as we set out to try every single joint in the KC metro area!

We'll lay out a roadmap of the joints we want to visit by quarter for the year, then over time, set and publish our road trip dates and the joints we'll hit on that day.

Follow along as we code and build our tracker below, already a work in progress, and let us know if you have any questions or ideas!

Looking forward to our road trips and eating LOTS of barbeque!
