Chef Guy Fieri is looking to put four more Kansas City area barbecue joints on the map tonight. The Kansas City Barbecue Tour episode for his series, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," airs at 8 p.m. on the Food Network.
Fieri stopped by Smokin' Guns BBQ in Kansas City, RJ's Bob-Be-Que and Johnny's Hickory House Bar-B-Q in Mission, and Woodyard Bar-B-Que in Kansas City, Kansas, back in April.
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives focuses on quirky, locally-owned restaurants. The types of places typically featured have never appeared on the Food Network and have a chef-owner with a penchant for inventing recipes.
Johnny's (5959 Broadmoor Street, 913-432-0777) is holding a watch party tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. There will be food and drink specials, along with the pulled pork made by owner Johnny White. One of the recipes also featured in the episode is the burnt end chili from Woodyard. With big chunks of smokey brisket -- it's a recipe that should be tried at home.
The episode airs at 9 p.m. tonight on the Food Network. It will be replayed at midnight and at 8 p.m. tomorrow.
