OC Restaurant Quest: Woodchips Barbeque in Oxford
(Crystal A. Proxmire, Oct. 7, 2022)
Oxford, Lapeer, MI – Woodchips Barbeque started with a dine-in restaurant in Lapeer, adding an “Express” location in Downtown Oxford for carryout service. I ordered a sampling of items to try, including a platter with 2 ribs, a chicken leg and thigh, and pulled chicken with a cornbread muffin. For the sides I had coleslaw and black beans. Plus I got an tasty order of mac and cheese with brisket, which came topped with aioli and Funyon crumble.
Items are made from scratch, including the slow-smoked meats. Woodchips has sauces that are made from house-made, including Texas BBQ, Sweet Memphis, Michigan Apple, Carolina Gold, and the extra spicy Witches Brew.
Those in the mood for sandwiches will find a nice selection. Porky’s Revenge has smoked pulled pork with slaw. 2 Lil Pigs has pulled pork with bacon, Chipotle bacon aioli, and cheddar. The Gerogian has smoked turkey, swiss, slaw, and Russing dressing. And for those who don’t want meat there’s the Veggicado made with Swiss, cheddar, guacamole, WICHsauce, pickled onion, slaw, and tomato.
The smoked meats of all types also go well with burritos and rice bowls.
Woodchips Barbeque’s Oxford location is at 40 N. Washington Street, and in Lapeer they’re at 315 W. Nepessing Street. Learn more or order online at https://www.woodchipsbbq.com/.
