Tom Jenkins - Ft Lauderdale

LikeTheWolf | Apr 21, 2008 10:32 AM

I am flying into Orlando on a Saturday. Driving to Ft Lauderdale on Sunday. In Miami for the rest of the week up to Friday. Driving back to Orlando, via Naples/Tampa on the next Saturday.

My problem is, I've heard Tom Jenkins is closed on Sunday. My question is:

Is the BBQ at Tom Jenkins good enough for me to re-arrange things so that I drive back via Ft Lauderdale on a day that it is open? I don't have time while in Miami cause of meetings. Is there any other joints that is comparable in the south Florida area?

My expectations:

I don't have a particularly good mindset on what good BBQ is. I come from Toronto Canada where BBQ is a weak "cuisine." My experience is Sonny Bryan's in Dallas, and in Orlando: Bubbalou's, Smokey Bones, and OBoy's. In Tampa, Jazzy's and Big John's. I thought Sonny's was OK...tasted like it was sitting around for awhile. Didn't like all the places in Orlando. The Tampa places were the best so far.

Thanks for reading!
