My family and I moved back to Florida from Memphis Tennessee. I learned BBQ from some of the best names in BBQ royalty: Nick Vergos, Mr. Neely, etc. Moving back to Brandon and getting a better paying job meant I did not have time to smoke meat very often.

Had chicken and all the fixin's, including the beans. The chicken is some of the best smoked chicken I have eaten, and it was fresh and hot and served up nicely. The beans seemed sweet to me; some folks like them that way, but I prefer them more smokey and spicy, not sweet. Great mom and pop BBQ...worth the trip... More
