Troy's in Boynton Delivers BBQ Goodness
I've heard some good things about Troy's, a red shack on the corner of Federal Hwy. and Martin Luther King Blvd. in Boynton Beach. Mostly that they don't necessarily plunk their pig parts in a smoker and leave them there for hours at a time; rather, their cue is more on the grilled side. When I arrived, I peeked around the corner of the rib shack and noticed a barrel smoker that was wide open and chugging away, sort of like an open pit. I'm not sure I'd say the process invalidates Troy's as real BBQ, but the end result tastes pretty swell. I purchased a big rib dinner with five meaty spears and a pile of mac and cheese and collard greens, as well as a sliced pork sandwich on a sesame seed-studded bun. For less than $20, it was a ton of food.
Troy's is just a half-dozen blocks down the road from another Boynton cue shack, Rufus Ribs. Which one you frequent probably amounts to proximity and personal preference, as they both have a very similar taste. I'd give Rufus' sides a slight edge; same thing with Troy's ribs.
Both, however, are worth immediately pulling off the road when you pass them by.
