Last week, I had the pleasure of working near Kansas City, so naturally there was a sampling of some excellent barbecue, including Oklahoma Joe’s, recommended by CM and Olathens everywhere. The following Sunday, we had the pleasure of tasting the Waukau Chicken Barbecue. At Waukau, they dig a trench in the ground about 60 feet long and fill it with charcoal and then poultry. I think it draws half the county. The draw for me, however, is not the barbecue but the whole experience, because this is a slice of America that everyone should experience at least once per year.
