Hooked on Genuine Slow-Smoked BBQ

Last Spring, I had the distinct pleasure of dining at Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Ever since, I’ve been looking for a special source for excellent BBQ closer to my home. A short time ago, I was in Detroit with my son and his family and had the pleasure of enjoying a meal at Slow’s Bar-B-Q and found it was delicious. It is much too far for me to travel for a great lunch or dinner, however.

Well, I’m very pleased to report I may have finally located the place in my own back yard. I recently stopped in to Daddy Pete’s BBQ on Eastern Avenue near 28th Street in Grand Rapids for lunch. I chose from their delectable take-out menu and had a Sliced Beef Brisket Sandwich, along with Smokey Baked Beans and Six Cheese Mac & Cheese on the side including a few sweet & spicy pickles, of course.

Seriously, that beef nearly melted in my mouth with a deep, wonderful smokey flavor that makes sure BBQ lovers keep coming back. Those smokey baked beans were also outstanding…I couldn’t ask for more!

Check out the Daddy Pete’s BBQ story here. If you live nearby or are ever in Grand Rapids, Michigan and love Southern slow-smoked flavor, I encourage you to stop by Daddy Pete’s next time you get a chance…you will not be disappointed!

    We’ll need to take the grandkids and kids there. Love trying a great BBQ place.


    1. Only problem is that they have “maybe” 10 seats inside! 😳
