Plank’s Barbecue Honors Garden City Heritage

Beef production in Kansas is big - cattle represented almost half of the agricultural cash receipts in 2010 and Kansas ranks third in the nation with 6.1 million cattle on ranches and feedyards. That's more than twice our state's human population! Our family saw a good many of these bovine beauties on a recent trip to western Kansas, where we sampled some Kansas beef at Plank's Barbecue in Garden City.

A Trip to the Wild West

A Faces & Places Roadie Blog

Despite living in Kansas all my life, I haven’t traveled to many cities in the West so I didn’t exactly know what I was in for on my Faces & Places Tour trip to Garden City and the Beef Empire Days Rodeo.My friend Jessica and I planned ahead by looking through our Kansas Visitors Guide. We wanted to enjoy everything about southwestern Kansas. We started with a pit stop in Great Bend for a tasty meal at Diane’s Diner and a little shopping downtown. On the road again, we enjoyed our view of beautiful wheat fields being harvested.
