BBQ resturants

So here's the deal. My cousin is coming to visit over the Xmas break. He is from Memphis TN. And he loves BBQ. Last time he was here I took him to slows in Detroit. He said it was horrible and shouldn't be called BBQ.

So I'm looking for a extremely good BBQ joint to take him and his wife to. So where are your favorite places? Thanks!!

A band I listen to called Blackberry Smoke came to flint and went to the woodshop and said it was amazing. In my book if boys from Georgia like it, it must be good

If he didnt like Slows then he has made up his mind that any place the serves BBQ in Michigan isnt going to be good. I have eaten BBQ all over the USA and Slows is as good as just about anywhere. As a matter of fact I am eating BBQ in Tenn as we speak.

He is a doucher, I can tell.

Thanks for the input. I'm not really into BBQ. So I took him where I have been and it was good. Your right he is a bit of a doucher. Nothing is ever good enough for him. But as kids we were really close and I do like to see him when he comes to visit. I think we will end up going out for steaks at Roast.

Please do not take him to the Woodshop.
I need less people clogging up Clarkston, not more.

This is hilarious. I may not make $150,000 driving a garbage truck, but I make pretty close to that without picking up people's shit...

x2. Slows is legit, he just had his mind made up before he walked in the door.

Mr. Green is correct.

He already has a pre conceived notion us Yankees can't BBQ.

Take him to Burger King and get him a Western Whopper.

I also agree. Take him to a coney island or Telway in Madison Heights. Telway will prove how strong his digestive system is.
