BK's bbq (Ann Arbor)

trapani Aug 3, 2013 03:59 PM

Anyone know about a gentleman named B.K. who periodically sells bbq off Miller Avenue?
Stumbled upon him & his smokers today at New Hope Church. Sadly, the que wasn't for sale but for the church picnic. He generously gave me a plate of some gooood ribs anyhow.
Says he sets up for sale now & again . . . Wondering how I'll find that beyond prowling the corner of Miller & Chapin every weekend.

    My son & I enjoyed two plates today: ribs & pulled pork, with sides of mac n' cheese, green beans, and potato salad. Plus desert (cake slices). Each plate + 2 sides: $10

      Whoa...does that include the dessert? And while you enjoyed it, were there any weak points? I can be awfully picky about my potato salad.

        The meats were really solid & so was the mac & green beans. Potato salad was . . hardly gourmet, long on mayo (sweet). And the cake was mix cake, but hell tasted good.

        Overall, good no-frills stuff . . . and cheap.

          Yep, saw them (& smelled them) on Sunday. Sadly, we had just eaten lunch!

          I wonder if this is the same guy with a set up at new grace apostolic on Packard near platt. Big signs today advertising BBQ on Saturday.

            Nope, those are church members themselves who do that barbecue periodically. They smoke it outside and serve it up in the church kitchen. It's quite good—I prefer the chicken.

            He's at the yard right by the RR bridge,
            next building over is the now closed Bill Muncy auto repair - across the street from Knights Market.
