Got the fatty brisket, ribs, and a sausage link - was not disappointed. Not as much kick as advertised. Sides were meh. Great Q in small town environment.

Micklethwait Craft Meats not only serves great smoked meats, they also bake their own bread and desserts, all the sides and sauce are homemade, and they start with dry beans from a sack rather than from a can.
