|There isn't a shortage of barbecue places around Galesburg and Knox County and now a new Smokehouse joins the list.
Big Mike's Smokehouse Grill 'n' Bar opened it's doors last week to a warm reception offering everything from Ribs to even a smoked Reuben Sandwich.
Owner Mike Kallenbach tells WGIL he got some hands on training from people who live in one of the best cites for barbecue.
"I've been living in Kansas City for the last 10 years and have been perfecting my smoking skills there because that's the barbeque capital of the world.," says Kallenback. "I actually learned there and from a gentleman from Memphis, Tennessee."
Kallenbach says he's working for the customer and they're able to smoke just about anything.
He says they offer both a dry rub for the meats, but they'll also prepare them Kansas City Style which is wet or covered in sauce.
Big Mike's Smokehouse is located in the old Kozy Inn just North of Galesburg off of US Highway 150.
