When Anthony Bourdain visited Kansas City, Houston and North Carolina or BBQ Triangle on his show A Cook’s Tour, he and his crew picked many restaurants. Here are all the addresses and the dishes showcased in a convenient list.
This is A Cook’s Tour, season 2, episode 7. It first aired on April 4, 2003.
Anthony Bourdain visited the first city in the BBQ triangle and headed to Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que where the owner recommended him a Carolina pork sandwich. It’s a pulled pork sandwich with slaw on top served with “Bubba sauce”.
He also had beef brisket and burnt ends.
“Oh wow, now this is finger-licking good. Flavor up the yin-yang, it’s great.” -Anthony Bourdain
Dave recommended Burns Original BBQ to Anthony to taste some ribs and brisket in Houston. They ate BBQ ribs with sauce and a potato salad with pickles on the side.
“Burn’s place may not get a 30 for decor from the Zagats anytime soon, but Roy has mastered the golden rule, make good food. So if you’re on a quiet rural road in Houston, and you see a huge line, get in it. You may just get to try one of the tastiest secrets in America.” -Anthony Bourdain

DISH – Pork BBQ – Anthony Bourdain BBQ Triangle
WHAT IS IT?
Anthony goes to North Carolina in order to eat barbecued pork. It’s cooked whole, on a pit, for 8 to 10 hours. Then the pig is deboned and the meat is hand-chopped. Next step is seasoning the meat by putting vinegar, red and black pepper and lots of sugar in it then mix it all by hand.
“Well, it’s very much my philosophy, if you’re gonna kill a pig, you should eat every part of it.” -Anthony Bourdain
