I met up with a crew of bloggers which included the French Fry Fairy at Tom Jenkins’ Bar-B-Q in Ft. Lauderdale. My wife Marcela and I arrive late (our new Miami thing). When we walk in a few folks are already sitting down with their food while everyone else is receiving theirs. After looking over the menu we decide to do the ol’ divide and conquer routine and order 2 different things. Marcela orders the Beef Brisket w/Mac n Cheese and Coleslaw (it also includes a Cornbread).
I had the Rib & Chicken Combo with Mac n’ Cheese and Fries (Cornbread also). We also had 4 Hush Puppies (their minimum Hush Puppie order). Marcela did not like her Beef Brisket and after trying it I agreed. It was way fatty. The Mac n’ Cheese was good, she liked the Cole Slaw and the fries were ok. The Ribs were acceptable but the Chicken was on the amazing side.
I regret not going with Baby Back Ribs though. The Hush Puppies were right on also. After talking to one of the guys, he told me that Pork was the way to go at Tom Jenkins’. I wish this conversation had taken place before we got here. Doc Brown anywhere?
