3TV morning anchor Scott Pasmore grew up eating barbecue in America’s putative barbecue capital, Kansas City. Thus, we’ve entrusted him with perhaps our most important BOV taste test yet: barbecue brisket. As ’cuedom’s most agonizing and labor-intensive dish – pitmasters typically smoke the tough pectoral cut for 12-plus-hours before it achieves that divine, fork-tender ratio of bark, fat and meat – brisket is the main event of any barbecue competition. The question of who smokes the Valley’s best specimen has kept many-an-enthusiast up at night. We collected eight contenders and asked the venerable Valley TV personality to make the
hard choices.
