An innocent plug for Global Entrepreneurship Week by Sen. Jerry Moran made us a do a double take when we noticed the not-so-local business he was flogging:
Charlie & Arthur Bryant started a restaurant in 1920's Kansas City. BBQ fans around the world know the rest. #GEW pic.twitter.com/JqU0EQwmuYArthur Bryant’s

For those unfamiliar with the duality of Kansas City barbecue, there are world famous establishments native to each metropolis — one in Kansas, one in Missouri — as well as restaurants with locations in both states.
While staff confirmed that Moran has sampled Arthur Bryant’s fabled brand of barbecue before, the lawmaker clarified his go-to pits for HOH.
“The history, personality, sauce and world-class Kansas beef make Kansas City barbecue tough to beat,” the avowed burnt ends fan (us too!) asserted.
Much like that foul-mouthed radio pitchwoman who is habitually dousing everything with Frank’s Red Hot sauce, Moran, too, has a simple solution for dealing with flavorless fare he encounters in his epicurean travels.
“My favorite sauce is KC Masterpiece, which I often add to non-barbecue dishes too,” he said.
