Miller’s roots are decidedly humble. They started selling sausage wraps part-time out of a meat-processing business (with a taxidermy operation in the back). A mere eight years later, after making our Top 50 list, they moved into bigger and better digs. These days they have it all: near-flawless brisket smoked for half a day; toothsome St. Louis–cut ribs; flavorful house-made beef-and-pork sausages; smoked turkey and chicken; and palate-pleasing piles of pulled pork. Standout desserts, handled by Momma Miller, a.k.a. Dirk’s wife, Lisa, range from red velvet cake to fluffernutter cookies. Visit on the weekend to fully appreciate the bar, craft beers, and live music.
