Top Eight New Local BBQ Joints – Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Free Press has done it again (they always seem to peak my interest in something BBQ related). This time they came out with their top eight new BBQ Joints in Detroit, Michigan.

Sylvia Rector, the Free Press restaurant critic, does a great job running down all the new BBQ joints that have cropped up over the last year and a half. I know, when you think of BBQ you think of Texas, North Carolina, Kansas City, and Memphis, TN, but from what I’ve been reading about lately (and from all the emails I’ve received), the Detroit, Michigan area is becoming a hot bed of BBQ from exciting chefs.

Here’s their list:
Slows Bar BQ
Union Woodshop
Bad Brads BBQ
Lazybones Smokehouse
Redsmoke Barbecue
Roundhouse Restaurant
Rub BBQ Pub
Lockhart’s BBQ

So if you live in Michigan and you’ve tried (or are planning on trying) any of these joints, shoot me an email. Would love to hear what you think. I for one plan to travel to Michigan this fall to do my own investigating.

  1. Hey Kevin, nice to see you following the new hot trend in metro Detroit! I’m the pit master @ Lockharts BBQ. If your ever in town, stop by for some of the best BBQ you’ve eaten!
