Kansas City BBQ Experience

Wednesday, June 21st | 5:30 PM CT


We want to see you get messy with all the fixin’s in Kansas City with us. No need to get up early for this one, all we ask is that you come hungry. KC is THE city for barbeque, and we booked the legendary 180 Room for a night of BBQ you’ll never forget, so let’s enjoy some brisket in this smoked meat mecca while we talk shop with a packed house.

Let us tell you about the meat on the bone. We enjoy cocktails, whiskey, and beer while the room fills up. There will be time for presenting to our guests and taking some questions. Then we pile smoked meats and sides onto our plates paired with another beverage. We can’t think of anything better to do in the great state of Missouri.

Kansas City is serious about its barbecue. Which is why barbecue contests are so popular around here.

Contests are where folks who are seriously passionate about cooking barbecue perfect their art and hone their skills. Contests are where Jeff and Joy Stehney got their start making barbecue, back in 1990. And like all competition barbecue cooks, for them, the number 180 has special significance.

180 is a perfect score.

“It’s such a great feeling when a panel of contest judges gives your brisket, pork, chicken, or ribs a score of 180,” says Jeff. “That 180 means that, on that day at least, as far as those judges were concerned, your barbecue was perfect. Or pretty close to it."

“Over the years, at Joe’s Kansas City, the number 180 has become code for our aspiration to excel in all that we do. It’s what we strive for everyday in our food, in our service, and in our relationships with our customers and staff.” It’s only natural then, that when Jeff and Joy decided it was time to open a private dining and event space that they would name it The 180 Room.
