Another guy from MI
 
Hi. This is the fourth BBQ forum I've joined in as many months. Why? Well, it turns out I can't stand elitist, narcissistic jerks. Grand Poobahs and their butt-sucking minions don't interest me.

Who'da thunk it?

I don't know everything, but I know enough to be useful.

I can admit that not all of my cooks turned out the way I want. I do not understand people who can't.

I have opinions and am not afraid to share. We might debate, we might disagree. The world won't end.

I grill on both charcoal and gas. I have smoked with charcoal, wood, electric, and gas. Your choice of fuel doesn't cause me to think you're an idiot. I hope my choice doesn't bother you.

I've read through the forum. I like the fact that everyone isn't doing their best to be perfectly polite or politically correct. It appears to be a small place, but that's ok. I'd rather connect with a few real people.

I hope I'm in the right spot.

I see your experience with smoking goes back quite a ways!


Oddly enough I've never been there. I grew up in Belleville, and it seems like we went to the Detroit Dragway 4 or 5 times a season but never Milan. I'm talking old days, Don Garlits, Roger Lindamood, etc. I remember when Done Prudhomme and Tom Mcewen were billed as the 'Snake' and the 'Mongoose' by Revell, who mostly wanted to sell model car kits!

I'm right in town, probably 3 or 4 miles away. On a still and heavy night I can just barely hear them if top fuel are running.

The food there was better then the races...LOL

I can't remember what food we got at DD. Probably hot dogs or something.


Plank Road is in such bad shape I don't know how they convince anyone to even go there.

Max 09-13-2015 11:55 AM

LoL, Plank Road is never gonna change, unless they convert it back to dirt. Milan you say? Petersburg here.... Anywho, can't wait to see what kind of foodporn you post...

Thanks. It won't be as nice looking as what I've seen here. I am REALLY REALLY REALLY good at taking snapshots. I am decidedly not a photographer.

Max 09-13-2015 12:38 PM

Does not matter that they are great pictures, or have great presentation, just make sure they are in focus.

Meant to say too, I used to be a weekend warrior musician. Played at the Brass Rail many times.

Bosko 09-13-2015 12:51 PM

The Rail closed years ago. The Walnut is still open.

Ah! Roy's! The best pulled pork sandwich that wasn't BBQ'd you'll ever have! I wish someone could dissect their sauce.


The Owner lost the bar to his wife in a divorce. No one much liked her and everyone stopped going. Last time we played there the audience was 2 or 3 people. It was pathetic. Not that it was ever great, but we did have some fun nights.

Max 09-14-2015 04:34 PM

Ha, bring me some sauce.....

Oh okay, last few times I have been there, have not seen her. Kinda wondered what happened to her.

I remember the old days, grabbing some burgers at Roy's and heading to the beach for the Bikini Off Contest....
