“let us satisfy your hunger”
Yes Virginia, there is real good BBQ in Michigan. Real BBQ cooked over hickory, apple and cherry at 250 degrees for hours and hours. O.T.'S Up-N-Smoke B.B.Q. in Battle Creek, Michigan is a joint that you must try. You can taste the meat. The flavor isn't covered up by the sauce. The sauce is sweet with a tang that doesn't stay in the back of your mouth until tomorrow. It fades away so you can taste it and the meat with your next bite. I had the ribs, chicken, cole slaw, potato salad, black beans with rice, sweet potato pie and apple pie. I would have tried the pulled pork. However, that sold out at lunch, and the next 30 butts weren't off the pit yet. I almost forgot to mention the deep fried catfish---good. Oh yes, all the sides are made from scratch and are good. I would tell you what my wife thinks, but she can't talk now. She is too busy eating some of [O.T.'S] dry ribs. I went for the ribs, to see if I could find competition quality ribs at a restaurant in Michigan. And yes, I did. When [O.T.] starts competing (which he wants to do), we will all have one more skilled competitor to watch for over our shoulders.” Review by Gary Sparbel (Portage, Michigan --- June 9, 2006)
