It's nice to discover that Andrew Zimmern isn't always eating durian or an unconventional part of an animal. The host of Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel is known for literally getting into the guts of a place's food culture, eating insects and blood pudding for our entertainment.

Zimmern is looking for the heart of Kansas City in this month's Delta Sky Magazine. In his most recent monthly column, Andrew's Picks, he focuses on three "lesser-known" barbecue joints — Earl Quick's, Danny Edward's and B.B.'s Lawnside Blues & BBQ.

He is clearly a rib eater and certified meat lover, but it's Quick's that captures his heart. He calls the classic joint a "must for every barbecue lover." This isn't the first time Zimmern has dripped a bit of sauce on his shirt. He visited Kansas City back in 2008 and had high praise for L.C.'s and Jack Stack. L.C.'s was "a truly local experience for the adventurous," while Jack Stack was "serious barbecue with authentic and knowledgeable service."

In his piece, he says "narrowing down the best spots could be a full-time job." If so, I'm thinking that a lot of you are wondering where the application is for that position? Still, it's nice to see some new names in a national publication.
