(WJBK) - The next time you're at The Palace, you can try out a new signature barbecue dish inspired by one of the Pistons player.
The platter is available at the Maplewood BBQ and Palace Grill. The dish was inspired by Piston's center Aron Baynes, and portions of the proceeds will also be donated to a charity of Baynes' choice.
The platter includes beef brisket with a brown sugar and black pepper rub that is smoked for 18 hours, collard greens and mac and cheese.
You can get recipes from the platter that you can make at home below.
