Best Bar-B-Q in Broward: Readers' poll

Bar-B-Q'd Ribs
A platter of Barbequed Spare Ribs - Finger lick'in good!

Bar-B-Q means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, and we can't even agree on how to spell it. Is it "BBQ", or "barbeque" or "barbecue" or my favorite, "Bar-B-Q"? And once you get beyond the spelling issue, the argument progresses to the kind of meat. Should it be spare ribs, baby back ribs, beef ribs, sliced or chopped pork shoulder, pulled pork, sliced beef brisket, or even Bar-B-Q chicken?

The next point of this smoky debate is the sauce. Should it even have a sauce or should it be slow-cooked with a dry rub, or even "naked," allowing the smoky flavors of the meat to come out all on their own? And if you're one who's partial to sauce, should it be blazing hot, or sweet, or even have a touch of bourbon? One of my favorites, is a spicy and sour, vinegar-based Carolina style Bar-B-Q sauce that's thin in comparison with most Bar-B-Q sauces, and rarely found in Broward.

One thing everyone who loves Bar-B-Q can agree on, is whether it ribs, pork shoulder, beef brisket, or chicken, the meat should be tender, juicy, and full of smoky, slow-cooked flavor.

Cast your vote on the poll for the best Bar-B-Q in Broward, and sooner better than later, the top choices will be personally reviewed by this starving Examiner. It's up to you to steer me to the tastiest, most succulent Bar-B-Q in the land. So heat up the competition, and let the Bar-B-Q begin!
