Food Network Calls This The Best BBQ In Michigan
The state of Michigan does not have an official state food, maybe it is because we have to many great food options to choose from.
You may not associate Michigan with great barbecue, but that may change when you hear about a place in Traverse City. The Food Network claims this hot spot is home to the best barbecue in the Great Lakes State.
So what is this badass BBQ joint serving? The Food Network describes the food selection as follows,
The menu covers a wide range of Midwestern classics, including burgers and deep-dish pizzas, yet the ’cue is what draws the crowds. Locals love the spice-rubbed, slow-smoked, hand-pulled pork and hickory-smoked chicken coated with bourbon-chipotle barbecue sauce. Both are served with a hearty helping of buttermilk mashers and fresh vegetables.
Is anyone else ready for a road trip? I am ready and willing to hit the road to check out Blue Tractor Barbeque in Traverse City. According to Food Network, Blue Tractor Barbeque is not only rich in BBQ, but in history too,
This 1886 saloon has had many incarnations over its 150-or-so-year lifetime, but it’s long been a meeting place for local farmers who worked the land. It still is, but with a meaty twist. Blue Tractor is named for those cultivators of the past and for the present growers who supply many of the items in the kitchen.
I am so bummed I did not know about this place when I was in Traverse City last summer. However, there is also a Blue Tractor Barbeque location in Ann Arbor too.
