Biting into a slab of ribs can make you feel like you're at the top of the food chain or the bottom of a delicious pile of meat. Savor every bite with this Groupon.

The Deal

The Cue and Brew Tour treats guests to the ins-and-outs of Kansas City barbecue. The 3- to 3.5 event includes stops at three area barbecue restaurants, where diners taste portions of smoked meats and side dishes. The excursion winds through some of Kansas City's historic neighborhoods and includes a tour of a local Kansas City Brewery. Participants are allowed to bring 1 small cooler per guest and stock it with beverages of their choice for sipping along the way. Riders must be 21 or older.

Tastings, transportation, and gratuities are included in the tour.

KC Barbecue Tours

Kansas City pit-masters are a bit like wizards: with dashes of sauce and wisps of wood-smoke, they summon barbecue aficionados from across the world. But tourists aren't the only ones who hunger for their savory-sweet brisket, ribs, and burnt ends––locals do, too. Bethanie Schemel, owner of KC Barbecue Tours, gives both locals and travelers insider's access to the rich history––and deep flavor––of the city's smoked-meat scene through bus-guided food tours.

On these tours, groups visit famed barbecue hot-spots. They also make stops at beneath-the-radar barbecue joints. "We do have a couple smaller places on our tour that we tend to keep a secret because they are the hidden gems that not a lot of people know about," owner Bethanie Schemel told KCTV 5 News. Food isn't the only reason for booking a spot on one of KC Barbecue Tours' expeditions—participants also get a peek at behind-the-scenes preparation techniques, and can ask pit-masters for tips on what type of wood chips to use or how to build a xylophone from leftover rib bones.
