Two weeks ago we made the trek to Murphysboro IL to visit with Mike Mills, Amy Mills, Becky Streuter and their staff. 17th Street Barbecue was named The Best Ribs in the USA by Bon Appetit Magazine and we just had to see and taste for ourselves! AND Mike has been using GrillGrates in his kitchen since we met last October. We finally produced the custom 20” lengths he wanted for his char-broilers and flat tops.
We did not want to simply ship these new commercial grade GrillGrates to Mike and Becky. It was all we needed to say—road-trip! Spending a half a day in the kitchen with Mike working with GrillGrates will be a highlight for Susan and me for a long time. We also visited one of the 17th Street locations in nearby Marion, IL to meet with their kitchen staff that had already been working with GrillGrates; and then back to Murphysboro for a family style dinner at the original 17th Street location. Full racks for both Susan and me ended a really great day. The southern Illinois area is a nice place to visit with a thriving wine for the industry along with scenic countryside and small towns. We’ll be back September 24-26 Murphysboro Barbecue Cook-off, if not before!
