Smokin’ D BBQ was started in 2017 in a little yellow food trailer. We are a family owned business, with Kyle Davey as the pitmaster, and his wife, Lisa Davey who runs the front of the house. After 9 months of operating in our food trailer, we had an opportunity to move into a brick and mortar. This was something we wanted to do, so we could serve delicious barbecue all year long. In November of 2017, Smokin’ D BBQ made the transition into their permanent building at 1668 East Main Street.
Smokin’ D BBQ is a true southern style barbecue restaurant where the term ‘low and slow” is how we smoke our meats. We consistently use the same type of woods that give our meat its delicious flavor, and cooking at low temperatures, creates the tenderness that makes our meats mouthwatering. We also serve homemade sides, which include macaroni and cheese, beans, coleslaw, and cornbread. We cook our macaroni and cheese and beans on our smoker, the coleslaw and cornbread are made fresh daily. Other menu options include brisket tacos, D’ Philly, and the hot Ham and Cheese sandwich. The D’ Philly sandwich, one of our best sellers is a sandwich that has shaved brisket, peppers, onions, and melted cheddar cheese, all on a hoagie bun. Brisket tacos are also a big hit at Smokin’ D BBQ. Three corn soft shelled tacos filled with brisket, coleslaw, cheese, and homemade chipotle sauce are sure to get your attention!
At Smokin’ D BBQ, we don’t put sauce on our meats, it all comes on the side. We have two sauces that are made in-house. Our red sauce is a traditional sauce, with a sweet and spicy mix. Our second homemade sauce is white barbecue sauce that originates from Alabama. White barbecue sauce pairs well with smoked chicken, pork, and brisket. Both sauces are great additions to the meat, however, lots of customers choose to eat the meat without sauce!
Smokin’ D BBQ is a small family business located in Niles, Michigan. We take pride in serving the best food possible, having loyal customers, and hard work. We do not serve alcohol, we feel that it is not necessary to serve in a family atmosphere. As one of our customers said, “You can drink almost anywhere, I just want to eat good food.” WIFI and cable tv is also something that we do not have at Smokin’ D BBQ. Why you ask? Well, because we are more concerned with serving good food, not watching tv, or looking at our phones.
When you come to Smokin’ D BBQ, we will treat you like family, and we will make sure that you are satisfied with the service and the food. Our customers are the most important part of our business, as we could not do any of this without them. We started our business with one goal, to serve great barbecue. This is something that we love to do and want to continue to do.
