I NEED to eat REAL BBQ in South Florida. Where do I go?

Please do not suggest Shortys, Sonnys, The Pit, or Shivers. These places have all been major let downs to me. I usually only eat BBQ once a year and that's during RibFest in the homestead area. But they haven't had one in 2 years and now ive got the itch.

I'm looking for some real, been slow cooking over fire and smoke for hours on end type of BBQ

I want pork and I want beef.

The other BBQ. Threads are outdated so I'm curious to know if SoFla's BBQ scene has changed any For the better.

      1. All outdated threads? This one has posts from August and October:

        There you'll find plenty of recos for Smokehouse in Boca -

        Lots of good info, except perhaps that very last which seemed somewhat off on a lot of tangents about ownership and chicken wings.

        1. Without question Smokehouse Grill and Wingery on Yamato Rd. and 441 in Boca. Legitimate, genuine, really good que.

          1. Without a doubt..... Troy's BBQ on US 1 in Boynton Beach.. Make it a take-out order. Not the best of area...

              Didnt Troys Close? Last few times I drove by it was shut down.

                Troy's is infamous for random hours and days. Not to mention availabilty of food.

                Unless the place REALLY looks like it is shuttered for good, I would not put TOO much stock in the fact that it was closed 2 or 3 times when it "should" have been open.

                I'll see if I can check it out this weekend.
