Southern Soul Barbeque Restaurant Review

: Barbecue is all about details. It has to be cooked over wood. The wood has to be seasoned just right. So does the meat. Griffin Bufkin and pitmaster Harrison Sapp have all of these elements sorted out. The pair has a well-deserved statewide reputation for ribs, pulled pork and smoked sausage. Kansas City barbecue fans will want to note the burnt ends, which make a great snack; brisket lovers will not be disappointed. The pimento cheese is classic, and we also like the smoked chicken and turkey. Side dishes from mac 'n' cheese to collard greens and tangy slaw are all spot on. And for dessert? Fried Oreo cookies. If you can eat just one, you're a wizard of discipline. Artisan beers are the quaff of choice with this fine barbecue fare.
