South’s Best BBQ

“This year’s readers’ picks for the South’s best barbecue joints reflect the current state of Southern barbecue, offering a blend of continuity and change. Half the restaurants on this year’s list are repeat winners from the 2022 poll, but the other half are new…Surprisingly, though, a great many of our readers’ picks represent the older, more traditional styles of their respective regions.”

In a Southern Living article by Robert Moss, Tropical Smokehouse in West Palm Beach made it into The South’s Best Barbecue Joint In Every State for 2023.

“A remarkable barbecue revival is underway in the Sunshine State, as a new generation of cooks put unique local spins on traditional barbecue.

That means turning to the sea and to Caribbean flavors, too, with spicy smoked wahoo dip, mojo-laced pulled pork, brisket-stuffed empanadas, and slabs of splendidly flaky smoked salmon, all cooked on a big Primitive Pits offset smoker.”

As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.” –Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
