Beach BBQ

Would like to thank 'advisor Girl' for recommending "Beach BarbeQue" on Washington & 15th on Miami Beach.....Visited there last night and had a very good experience....They're meats are cooked "low-n-slow"....Had an order of spare ribs...they were perfect in that they were NOT falling off the bone....but departed from the bone with but a gentle tug....They had a smoky flavor and were very, very good....Only negative was that they went way heavy on the dry rub and that detracted a bit from the meat's natural flavor....But overall they were very, very good....They were also gracious enough to give me a nice sampling of their brisket...which was also properly smoked for more than 14 hours...had reached the proper internal temperature of 200 degrees...and that was evident by the texture and tenderness that can only be achieved by smoking for a prolonged period......They had an array of sauces to try and I liked them all for one reason or another....Liked the Spicy Orange best....as it was unique and tangy.......

They also served a unique cornbread muffin...that had slices of carmelized apples inside....and with a honey drizzle on the outside...Moist...heavy and tasty.....The corn on the cob and the baked beans were also very good as well....But the star of the show...the meat was very, very good.....

For what it's worth...I occasionally cook, compete and judge at BBQ events around the southeast....and as RESTAURANT QUALITY BBQ goes....Beach BBQ is excellent....

Service was reasonably good...not great....but good enough to provide a solid dining experience if there's such a thing when it comes to BBQ joints....Inside decor is quirky....Polynesia meets Redwood Forest.....

I haven't eaten at Tom Jenkins yet...But I've eaten BBQ at The Pit, Georgia Pig, Shorty's, People's, Sonny's and Beach BBQ's ribs, brisket and sides were superior.....
