    Which is the best barbecue city between the two?

    Memphis barbecue is best known for tomato- and vinegar-based sauces.In some Memphis establishments, meat is rubbed with dry seasoning (dry rubs) and smoked over hickory wood without sauce; the finished barbecue is then served with barbecue sauce on the side.
    A popular item in Memphis is the pulled pork sandwich served on a bun and often topped with coleslaw. Pulled pork is prepared by shredding the pork after it has been barbecued.

    Kansas City-style barbecue is characterized by its use of different types of meat (including pulled pork, pork ribs, burnt ends, smoked sausage, beef brisket, beef ribs, smoked/grilled chicken, smoked turkey, and sometimes fish), a variety attributable to Kansas City's history as a center for meat packing in the U.S. Hickory is the primary wood used for smoking in KC, while the sauces are typically tomato based with sweet, spicy and tangy flavor profiles. Burnt ends, the flavorful pieces of meat cut from the ends of a smoked beef or pork brisket, are popular in many Kansas City-area barbecue restaurants.

    The representatives from Memphis are crappy restaurants at best. The best places are the hole in the wall joints. Cozy Corners used to be one of the top spots in the country until the founder and owner died then it went straight down hill from there. There's a place call A&R they're pretty much the top spot there now and they're so so. The best Bar B Q if I don't make it myself is from Mississippi at any gas station selling it the best. I don't know jack shit about Kansas Bar B Q never had it. Chicago Bar B Q is the same as down South you got all kinds of spots there stay away from the white shops their shit sucks donkey asses.
