Guide Bio

I am a sightseeing guide and owner of a food tour company. Along with my wife, Bethanie, I provide a bus guided food tour of the world’s best barbecue food, here in Kansas City. I offer tours to enjoy a sizable sample at each stop and take time in the middle to tour through Kansas City to take in the history behind the sites.

I was born and raised in Chicago, where I worked for my family’s boat guided tour business. I discovered my love for barbecue while in college here. After years of sampling the various Kansas City barbecue options, I knew our passion for the food could be taken to the next level. I wanted to give visitors the option to not only try one type of barbecue but also all of the delicious flavours offered.

My goal is for each guest will leave the tour with the same love and appreciation for Kansas City barbecue that we have.

KC Barbecue Tours

We are a tour company specializing in barbecue food tours. We provide bus-guided tours as we travel through the city sampling barbecue from well-known establishments and “hidden gem” barbecue joints.
