The best pulled pork I've ever had is from a good friend of mine, who custom built a brick pit in his back yard. He slow smokes his pork butts for several hours with pecan. It is by far the best I've had.
He has decided to open a new BBQ restaurant and take out market at the location of what used to be Cafe Malbis on AL Hwy 181 about 3 miles south of I-10 at exit 38(Spanish Fort/Malbis). It will be called Mike's Smokehouse and Market. They will have a take home and merchandise market in addition to the restaurant. He has custom fabricated a really impressive large pit for his new venture.
They plan to open the week of June 28. I'll report back after they open. I'm both biased and excited, because I know Mike's BBQ pork will be better than any BBQ within miles.
