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!
