At City Barbeque there is one thing you won’t find – a microwave. “We don’t have microwaves in the entire building,” said Shelby Morgan, regional marketing manager. “Everything is made fresh.” The Troy location, 700 W. Big Beaver Road, is the chain’s second Michigan location and opened in May. Morgan said that City Barbeque is “real deal, authentic barbeque,” where they smoke their own meats – smokers can be found going around the clock – and serve in-house made sides and desserts, all in a setting to let guests feel like they are in their own backyards for a cookout. Their barbecue mixes a variety of types, ranging from Texas-style brisket to St. Louis-style ribs. And, if you hear a cowbell ringing, that just means someone ordered their More Cowbell sandwich, a towering stack of Texas Toast, award-winning beef brisket, smoked provolone, horseradish, and crunchy onion straws.
