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!
