WESTLAND, Mich. (WJBK) - Why have just slices of bacon when you can have all the bacon?
Jason Carr went to the Grindstone Smokehouse on Wayne Road just for this: a pork belly - bacon steak, served on a plank with a caramel glaze.
It is served with cornbread for the insane bargain price of $8.
By the glow of a cabin-like fireplace inside and the inviting smokehouse scent coming from the outdoor smoker, check out the process.
Grindstone is doubling down on America's love of brisket, bacon, ribs, pulled pork, barbecue.
Justin is the GM.
"Depending on the meat we toss it in the smoker and they smoke anywhere between two hours and 14," he said.
FOX 2: "How big are the sides of meat?"
"The briskets and the pork butts go to about 10 to 15 pounds each."
FOX 2: "That's a lot of butt."
Justin: "That's a lot of butt, absolutely."
And did we mention the pig candy? Hung from a line using clothes pins?
Grindstone Smokehouse is on the west side of Wayne Road, south of Ford Road, in Westland. For more information online go to: http://www.grindstonesmokehouse.com/
