Hello everyone!! My name is Jeff and I am from Grosse Pointe Woods, a small city right next to Detroit. I love to bbq and just picked up my first smoker the other week. It was just the cheap Brinkmann but I love it. We have several amazing bbq joints close by even though Detroit is not known for bbq. We have a joint withing walking distance that has amazing brisket. I have had bbq in Texas, Memphis and North Carolina. My fav food is brisket. I love vinegar sauces as well. Just wanted to stop and say hi before I start posting.

Welcome Jeff. Good to see the Grosse Pointers representing the east side! Is Lake St. Clair frozen yet? It's almost time for perch fishing!

You are right about all the good BBQ joints popping up. The ones near me are Hogs Hallow in Utica and Bad Brad's in Shelby Township. Whats the name of the place near you?

Glad to hear you're a brisket fan. I have been doing pulled pork for years but only recently got the brisket right where I want it, so I'm really into that right now. Anyways, welcome and look forward to seeing more from you!

Thanks for the tip. I haven't heard of that location so it's exciting to know great places are still to be found around town. If I get down that way sometime soon, I'll let you know. If you ever make it out to the Shelby Bad Brad's, let me know.
