An icon in the world of Kansas City barbeque has passed.
One of the best restaurants in midtown shared their grief with patrons this afternoon . . .
"After a 5 ½ year journey with colon cancer, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Rob Magee, Q39 owner and executive chef. A friend and mentor to many, he truly appreciated the thousands of people that enjoyed his BBQ from around the world. Rob was a true champion and no one could have packed more life into these last five years. May we all live by his life-affirming example. His commitment to BBQ will live on as Q39 continues to share his culinary passion. We appreciate your support as the entire Q39 family navigates this difficult time. #QStrong."
