Some of KC’s best barbecue comes from an unsung hero, pitmaster Bill Chaney

In the first of our “We the Pitmasters” series, we meet Bill Chaney, 85, who built his first brick barbecue pit for Russ Fiorella in 1957. Chaney has constructed nearly 20 pits in and around Kansas City, including for Jack Stack, LC’s, Smokehouse, Winslow’s and The Stack. Chaney represents a link to Kansas City barbecue’s historic beginnings, and he is an unsung hero who carries on the disappearing craft of pit building.
