I have eaten at his restaurant in Southern Illinois. Had a rack of baby backs. They had very good flavor with the rub. I have tried the recipe that he put in his book, Peace Love and Barbecue. It didnít have quite the same taste but still pretty good.

I have not tried it. 17th came of age after I left southern IL ~ 1989, plus Murphysboro was a ways away from my parents house (in Carmi till 2006).... seems like it would be very good, though. I liked the book. The Brunswick Stew recipe in that book is just great by the way.

Recipe for sauce?

1 cup Ketchup
2/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/2 cup apple juice or cider
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup soy or worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. yellow mustard
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 ground w. pepper
1/4 cayenne
1/3 cup bacon bits
1/3 cup grated apple
1/3 cup grated onion
2 tsp. grated green bell pepper

bring all ingredients to boil EXCEPT FOR ONION, G. PEPPER, APPLE, then add produce, reduce and simmer until the house smells good. Cool and it will thicken.

There are a lot of apple orchards in S. Illinois. Also Pears, and Peaches. Most importantly grapes....good vino! His book is worth the read. Gives a lot of insight behind the people who embellish the true aspect of bbq. ALMOST as much as the people behind this site! I don't know much but Mike Mills; to me, is one of the real deals.:thumbs up:

in my "research days" i grabbed a few bbq books to look thru. the 2 that i was told were must haves were Peace Love and BBQ and the other is Smokestack Lightening... Didn't care for the smokestack.. paints a bad pic of the very little north carolina bbq. BUT I really like mike's book. lots of good info and recipes.
