pepper23 Say, what's that barbeque place in K.C. that rolls your large barbequed sandwich up in a large piece of butcher like paper, still cooks out of the original place thats not too big, and still remains one of the best tasting barbeque places in K.C.? Saw it recently on t.v. but have forgotten the name.... I'd recognize it if you think you might know the name of it. I'm scratching my head........??
