I wish my husband were here to enjoy your food! We used to pack up for the weekend and drive to Tennessee just to eat BBQ at Thatchers BBQ because we could never find a good BBQ in michigan. If he would have known about your BBQ sooner, he would have been your best customer with a full heart of gratitude and a huge smile waiting for a second serving. Our drives to Tennessee would have ended abruptly. I received so many compliments about your food at our Celebration of Life for Steve. There was ample amounts of everything ordered with plenty to spare. You eased my mind when you arrived, helping to get things right and ready. It was perfect. Just what Steve would have wanted. Thank you for taking Sobie Meats to a new level!

The beans!!! I knew we were going to get some well prepared meat but I was not prepared for everything to be a main dish! Thank BD.

I used B.D.'s BBQ for a work engagement and they were exceptional. They catered 175 meals for families during our COVID safe Food Drive-in event. Not only were they kind and professional but the families loved the food. I would 100% recommend. They also made special accommodations to ensure that the baked beans did not have pork. We had a great time and i'm glad they catered the event.

I've had BBQ all over the country, and without question, THIS is the best! Right here in West Michigan!! It doesn't stop with Pit Master Big Daddy's mazing menu of BBQ and smoked meats... their selection of sides are also downright craze-worthy. In fact, Mamma's Famous Homemade Baked Beans are so beyond scrumptious, they should be placed on the DEA'S Controlled Substance List"! unforgettable food and world-class team. PERFECTION!
