It's cue up more 'cue for Smokehouse Grill & Wingery, the East Boca barbecue joint of Mark Uffer and Erik Frasco, who are launching their second Smokehouse out in West Boca come July. 

The new Smokehouse will take over the former Thirsty Turtle seafood eatery on Yamato Road. The much larger space will more than double the size of its North Federal Highway parent and will allow the 'Cue Two to almost triple their barbecue output, being able to slow-smoke some 90 slabs of ribs, 70 pork loins, 50 briskets, 30 turkeys, and 120 chickens simultaneously. 

The menus at both locations will be basically the same, with an emphasis in the west on family-friendly dishes and affordable lunch specials. There will be vegetarian offerings and kids' fare too, including a PB&J milk shake (though I'm waiting for the pulled pork martini).

This is great news to see they are expanding but Boca already is overloaded with BBQ joints,  mainly the below average Q variety. Smokehouse nails what BBQ should be and sets the standard.

I am a rib lover for many years.   have been to all of the places you mention here. REDs was  VILE. My wife & I went. I ordered the rib slab.  I barely ate 1 or 2 ribs.when the waiter came over he asked if I was finished. I said yes. Then he asked if I wanted to take them home.  When I said NO he should have asked me if something was wrong or better yet My mistake was  NOT telling him just how AWFUL they were.  Out of eating at MANY rib  restaurants in Chicago [home town] I have eaten also [ when I traveled] at many in Kansas city, St Louis MO, Springfield Mo etc etrc.  FOR  FREE  I would not ever go back to  REDS
