Kansas City's Barbecue King
The Real Humans podcast crew is off for the week, but we love this episode of A People's History of Kansas City and we think you will too. It's the little-known story of Henry Perry, the guy who made Kansas City barbecue famous back in the 1900s. He hasn't gotten the credit he deserves — until now.
Read more about how Henry Perry created Kansas City barbecue in the early 1900s from KCUR's Mackenzie Martin.
You can also hear more stories of the everyday heroes, renegades and visionaries who shaped Kansas City and the region on A People’s History of Kansas City, a podcast hosted by KCUR's Suzanne Hogan.
