Barbecue is one of those cuisines that has different regions around the U.S. claiming its version is the best. Depending on where you go, you can find regional takes on barbecue dishes that are guaranteed to be full of flavor, from the smokey signatures known around Texas to sweet and saucy favorites cooked up in Kansas City and incredibly seasoned meats found in Memphis.

24/7 Tempo compiled a list of the "best BBQ spot" in each state, analyzing ratings and reviews from local sites and looking at acclaimed establishments while mainly avoiding chains to really showcase what every state has to offer.

According to the site, the best BBQ spot in Missouri is Gates Bar-B-Q. While Kansas City has no shortage of incredible barbecue restaurants, this joint is an oldie but a goodie that keeps customers satisfied and craving more. Gates Bar-B-Q has a few locations around Kansas City. Find your nearest one by visiting the website.

Here's what 24/7 Tempo had to say about Missouri's top BBQ spot:

"Arthur Bryant's may be the city's most famous purveyor of barbecue, and it's as good as ever, but many connoisseurs prefer this five-location mini-chain, which dates its origins to 1946 when George W. Gates opened Gates Ol' Kentucky — which was eventually renamed and evolved into the present-day operation. Ribs, sausage, mutton, chicken, and more are on the menu, and there's a burnt ends sandwich served on a hoagie."
