We were completely shocked to check in on our Facebook fan page recently and find our good friend Kevin Dilmore congratulating us on receiving recognition as the Best Competition Barbecue Team in Kansas City for 2010 by The Pitch, our underground newspaper known for having it's finger on the pulse of the KC food and social scene. We love The Pitch, especially for the food reviews and definite opinions on the hot topics around town. We can't wait to pour over the annual Best Of awards, always learning of great new places to dine and shop that otherwise probably wouldn't make our radar. So, it is a great honor for us to be named as the best competition team.
Since starting as a music publication in 1980, the Pitch has grown to become Kansas City's leading source of sophisticated information that readers know they can't get anywhere else -- whether it's in-depth news and analysis about local power brokers; a rundown of who's in and who's out in the city's spirited arts, music and nightlife scenes; or the skinny on famous barbecue joints and steakhouses. More than 258,000 people read the paper every month, picking it up every week at 1,800 locations throughout a seven-county region. Readers across the world also look to our Web site, www.pitch.com, to keep up with what's happening here or to make plans whenever they're goin' to Kansas City.
