    Kansas City barbecue is a specific regional style focused on slow smoked meat. It originated with Henry Perry in the early 1900s. Perry was an African-American restaurateur who originally worked out of a trolley barn on 18th and Highland, apart of the historical African-American neighborhood.

    He offered a ribs slow cooked, which he sold in newspaper pages for 25 cents a slab of meat. Perry’s restaurant eventually became a cultural center during the renaissance of Kansas City Jazz.
