According to the Lansing State Journal, two barbeque experts will open their first brick and mortar restaurant in Holt this week.

Gravity Smokehouse and BBQ restaurant, an off shoot of the food truck that Bruce Kring and James Stine established last summer, will open its doors Wednesday at 11 a.m.

The slow smoked brisket, turkey, chicken and pulled pork they've been serving up at festivals and other events and in brewery parking lots has acquired a permanent address.

The eatery is located in a 1,000 square foot former Hot N' Now on Cedar Street that was vacant for six years before the duo bought it.  It offers a drive through, pick up counter and about a dozen dine in seats.

According to the owners, opening a barbeque business together saved them both from desk jobs they no longer wanted.
