I know in Kansas city the first popping bbq joint was a spit where they served even roadkill as bbq and served the bbq wrapped in newspaper. A black man put em on the map

"Next time you're eating burnt ends at Arthur Bryant's, stop and take a second to thank Henry Perry -- the man who made barbecue popular in Kansas City. Perry started selling smoked meats wrapped in newspaper for 25 cents on a trolley cart. Eventually, he started his own restaurant, which became incredibly popular.Feb"
