How It Works


Mark your progress by checking in to area barbecue restaurants. You’ll be prompted to submit what you ate, what the restaurant was like, take a photo of your meal and more.


Earn custom badges for completing special, barbecue-themed challenges, such as ordering pulled pork during several different check-ins. Collect as many as you can for bragging rights among friends, family and coworkers. New badges will be created periodically, so stay on top of updates.


Explore the metro by embarking on Trails, each a veritable barbecue expedition showcasing restaurants grouped by themes, such as old-school joints, geography and more. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the districts and neighborhoods along the way for a full Kansas City experience.
