KC Pit BBQ Truck, A Georgia-based Operation Closed for Drug Trafficking and Money Laundering


Recommended Posts

Oxymoron. If you want REAL BBQ, you should look to Kansas City, the barbeque capital of the planet.

Did I miss a mention of the how-can-you-miss-the-BIG-Kansas-City-BBQ-place depicted below? I was driving along New York Avenue & 7th NW (or 8th?) and it was just staring at me like a mega Mack. Oh, wait, it is. Anyone have any info on it?

No info but as a Missouri girl, I'm definitely intrigued.

I think the truck is at New York and 6th. The company is out of Sandy Springs, Georgia. I also read that they are testing the market, and that they would be there until tonight. Here are some early reports from a couple of highly reliable Chowhounds:

Well, well, well.

Just to be perfectly clear (and fair), this truck is no longer here, correct? If new owners have bought it and are running a legitimate operation, I don't want to harm them.

And to think I just power-watched "Narcos."

Has this story even been reported in the DC area? (I'm not talking about the Department of Justice.)
