How To Make Your Party Smokin' Good

Across America and throughout the D, people will be gathering this Sunday for two important reasons: football and food! No matter which team you are cheering for this Sunday, the winner at every party should be the food. Jeff Rose, the chef at CAYA Smokehouse Grill brought us some ideas for a smokin' Super Sunday spread for your party.

Rose brought some great oods to show us, such as a smoked meatball dish, smoked chicken wings, smoked beef brisket, and "crack cornbread." 

If you are interested in having Caya Smokehouse Grill cater your Superbowl party, they are taking orders right up until Saturday, February 3. 

CAYA Smokehouse Grill is located in Walled Lake off of South Commerce Road and Pontiac Trail.
