The search for the center of the barbecue universe moved one step closer to being solved this week. The Kansas City Business Journal reports that the American Royal Association has acquired the assets to the National Barbecue Hall of Fame.

While the assets currently consist only of the name and a website, the purchase suggests that the project could finally move from virtual to reality. A physical museum or hallway filled with busts (those aren't controversial, right?) would go a long way toward placing a clear landmark on the nation's barbecue map. This is a deal that made sense and perhaps can lead to bigger things in conjunction with the Royals' pursuit of an agricultural complex where Kemper Arena currently stands.
