After they finished playing a song, the lead singer, Tom Chaplin, said it was the band’s first time in Kansas. Many members of the crowd immediately booed him for saying that. Why? Kansas City is in Missouri. But at least Chaplin had a good excuse, as most people who are not American don’t know that. They may not even know that Kansas and Missouri exist, although a lot of people seem to know Kansas due to The Wizard of Oz. Before you get all mad at stuff. I know there’s more than Kansas City, Missouri. Across the street there’s a Kansas City, Kansas, too! Most of my wife’s family is from that Kansas City, the one in, you know, Kansas. But Kansas City, Kansas, or KCK is often overshadowed by Kansas City, Missouri, or KCMO due to the fact that it’s more than three times larger and has the majority of attractions that “Kansas City” is known for. Sure, KCK has the Kansas Speedway and Sporting KC, but KCMO has the Power and Light District, the Sprint Center, the World War 1 Museum, Westport, the Country Club Plaza, the Royals and the Chiefs, and Bryan Busby. So there are two Kansas Cities, but why is the Kansas City most people think of the one that’s in Missouri? Well strangely, Kansas City, Missouri existed first. First known as The City of Kansas, it was incorporated on February 22, 1853. Its residents named it after the Kansa, a Native American tribe that the residents of Kansas also named their state after later on. Keep in mind that Kansas didn’t exist yet in 1853. The next year, it became a territory and it didn’t become a state until 1861. It wasn’t until October 1872 that a few smaller towns all together to officially form Kansas City, Kansas. Of course, this was after Kansas City, Missouri’s population had skyrocketed. Before the Civil War, KCMO had less than 5,000 people. A decade later, it was approaching 35,000. The folks in KCK wanted to piggyback on the success of KCMO and essentially confuse visitors into thinking THEY were the real Kansas City. I should mention that before this, Kansas politicians made several attempts to annex KCMO and the surrounding area into Kansas. The Kansas City Times editorial board wrote, “Kansas City, Mo, is the legitimate outgrowth of the state of Kansas. In everything but a line on the map she is essentially a city of Kansas.” Unfortunately for Kansas, Missourians didn’t want to lose KCMO because you know, KCMO is awesome, so they fought back. Since then, the two cities and their suburbs have thrived in their own ways, but KCMO often dominates the headlines. Freaking KCMO. Anyway, how about this street behind me? It divides not just part of KCK and KCMO, but Kansas and Missouri further south. It’s called State Line Road, and it’s one of the most unique borders in the world. A street that divides two states presents unique challenges. Taxes are lower on this side than that side (that’s why you typically see more businesses on this side). At one time, the drinking age was 18 on that side of the street but 21 on this side. That led to a lot of 18 year olds crossing this street from here to there and later stumbling back, at least I presume. But how and why did State Line Road come to be? The earliest mention of State Line Road comes from an 1872 directory. Back then, it was just a few blocks long. Just like today, people went back and forth across the border like it was nothing. Back then, this was where the cows were. In fact, cows could often be in both states at the same time. The stockyards straddled the border so that people could more easily conduct business on both sides of the state line, sometimes within the same building. Soon though, it became apparent that a road separating the stockyards made it easier to move about to conduct such business. As the cities and their suburbs grew to the south, so did State Line Road. Today, it stretches nearly 14 miles.

It’s less than a month away, the World Series of Barbeque, also known as the American Royal Barbeque contest. And, competition barbeque teams from around the country are making plans to attend. On Labor Day Weekend, August 31 through September 3, Kansas Speedway will be rocking. But this time, it won’t be NASCAR but KCBS (Kansas City BBQ Society) that will be in charge of the rules. “The iconic contest is now in its 38th year” (via The KansasCity Star). And, it won’t be race cars but grills and smokers that will be competing. But, as usual, the competitors will be some of the best in the business and the Kansas Speedway will be the place to hang, especially for those who love barbeque. The American Royal is four days packed with all things barbeque. From a celebrity cook off and Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament to a class to become a “certified” barbeque judge, Day 1 kicks off the event. The American Royal holds three barbeque cook offs over the four days, including a Kids’ Q, a barbeque competition just for the kids. In addition to that, there are food vendors, a beer garden, carnival rides, live entertainment, and fireworks, just to name a few of the other festivities. Pork ribs are one of the four meat categories judged in competition barbeque. [Image by Teri Virbickis/Shutterstock] Each of the barbeque competitions consists of four individual meat contests: chicken, pork ribs, pork and beef brisket, plus overall. Each meat is turned in, individually, at specified times starting at noon with chicken. Then, every thirty minutes later there is another “turn-in” until all four types of meat have been turned in for judging, by 1:30 p.m. Each type of meat turned is judged on three factors: taste, tenderness, and appearance. Taste is the most heavily weighted and each factor can earn up to ten points. And, with six judges tasting and rating each meat, there is a total available point value of 180. Needless to say, earning a “180” is a big deal. The first of the barbeque contests is the Invitational. In order to qualify for this event, a team must have won, or been Grand Champion, of an appropriately sanctioned barbeque contest during the last year. No second-place finishers allowed. Then, after receiving the coveted invitation and entering the contest, a team is allowed to compete. Last year, there were 180 teams in the Invitational, including some of the very best barbeque cooks in the nation. 913 BBQ, led by Bethany McAllister of Kansas City, was the winning team. And, since Bethany took last year’s title, she and her team are automatically invited back for this year to give her a chance to defend the title. Beef brisket is the last of the four meat categories to be judged in competition barbeque. year to give her a chance to defend the title. [Image by Stuart Monk/Shutterstock] The second of the barbeque contests is the Open. Like the name says, this contest is open to any team “who can come down and show off their best barbeque skills” (via The American Royal). For the Open, in addition to the usual four types of meat, there are categories for sausage, sides, and desserts. The judges for the Open probably don’t need to eat again for a while after that contest is over. Last year’s winner, Iowa’s Smokey D’s BBQ, led by Darren Warth, is signed up again this year. Look for Darren and his team to compete hard to defend last year’s title. The World Series of Barbeque is coming. Be sure to mark your calendar for Labor Day Weekend and plan to visit this prestigious barbeque event. And, if you really like it, take a barbeque judging class and sign up to judge next year. It is sure to be some of the best-tasting barbeque in the country.
