that's good to hear ..... over the years I've really enjoyed Jay Henges .... the last time I spoke with some fellows who work there they said the mounts that hold the deflectors in place failed .... the manufacture says they were installed wrong .... the installers say the mounts were defective .... neither was willing to pay for the repairs .... no money in the state budget to cover it .... don't know it that's accurate or not

With your change of plans, Jim, I double-checked the LC range hours. They are closed on Tuesdays:

MDC Lake City Range Hours
May 2 - September 16
Wednesday through Sunday
Noon to 6:00 p.m.

Glad I remembered to let you know that.

Rumors are true about KC BBQ places. Bring extra napkins along! ;)

I have one BBQ place that would be an easy "find," if your travel brings you via I-29 south into KC. It is visible from I-29, and just a couple of blocks in/out to get back to your travel road.

Restaurant & Menu
https://www.smokehousebbq.com/location-zonarosa-.html

Location is in a neat shopping center called Zona Rosa
https://www.zonarosa.com/

I had lunch earlier this week at the Smokehouse. Good food, pleasant restaurant. BTW, a very large parking area is behind the string of shops on the main drag. Pretty sure it would be easy access and parking for your rig.

And if you google KC BBQ restaurants, they are all over the map. Lots of comments from BBQ lovers, and lots of choices. This one is just my suggestion to get you started. :lol:

One thing you really don't have to search hard for is good BBQ in KC. There are LOTS of places and they're 99% all good. Bad BBQ doesn't last in this town.

Based on where you're weighing anchor, there's another good local place in Blue Springs, on the east side of town, called Zarda BBQ. It's on Hiway 7 (same main drag you'll take to get to the Lake City range).

I'll shoot you some other ideas via PM.

Both, plus chicken, ham, turkey and sausage. KC has become known as kind of a "burnt ends" town, which is the cubed up part of a brisket that's become too skinny to yield a decent slice (hence, the "end" in "burnt end").

Jack Stack is another local chain that does great work. Fantastic menu (very broad), great service and great space.

There's one not too far from where you'll be, in Lee's Summit, MO.
