If there's one thing that everyone in America seems to love, it's barbecue. The airwaves are now filled with what seems like scores of BBQ competition shows, tasting shows, and how-to shows all about the different techniques, textures, and flavors of one of America's favorite cooking styles. Now, South Floridians have a chance to get into the action.
