BBQ Video – 17th Street Bar and Grill – Murphysboro, IL

I found this great video of Kevin Pang’s (The Chicago Tribune) behind the scenes visit to one of the mecca’s of BBQ, 17th Street Bar and Grill in Murphysboro, Illinois where he gets a short personal tour (which of course means eating some baby back ribs) by “The Legend” Mike Mills himself. Man do I want to visit here soon. Please enjoy:

  1. Nice video… I just spent a few days down in Murphysboro with Mike and the 17th Street crew with their consulting arm (, and those guys are the real deal. Incredibly knowledgable, and even more generous with that knowledge. Great people, every single one. Mike is as good as they come. And phenomenal barbecue. My stomach is still trying to remember its natural form.

  2. I as well just returned from the Business of Barbecue seminar put on by Oncue. Mike and Amy Mills are so open and generous! No question went unanswered. Working the pits with Mike and two of his pitmasters Phillip and Luke has been the highlight of my life as a BBQ restaurant owner. What you see in this video is exactly what you get from Mike! He is honest, hard working and exceedingly humorous!

  3. Having been a resident of Carbondale, IL (just east of Murphysboro, IL) for a couple of years, I always enjoy seeing 17th Street get good press. They are the real deal!
