Ten Best Barbecue Spots in South Florida
4. Dixie Pig
Lots of places serve Carolina barbecue sauce, but few actually specialize in Carolina barbecue itself. The 21-year-old Dixie Pig has been serving pork marinated in a special vinegar-based sauce, then slow-cooked with hickory wood and served with a no-mayo, vinegar-based coleslaw. It's a taste of the country. Dixie Pig is located at 4495 N. Dixie Highway in Oakland Park. Call 954-772-5977, or visit dixiepigbarbeque.com.
3. Blue Willy's Barbecue

This much-beloved barbecue truck might be on a short hiatus -- owner Will Banks is currently in the process of renovating a new brick-and-mortar location that's expected to open sometime in July -- but it's known for its awesome celebration of different styles of barbecue. Banks uses a combination of hickory and pecan woods to slow-cook his simply prepared -- only salt and pepper as seasoning -- Texas-style brisket, Carolina-style pulled pork, and spare ribs. Homemade sauces -- from Carolina (mustard and vinegar bases) to white Alabama sauce (a tangy mayonnaise-based sauce) for chicken -- are served on the side. Blue Willy's will be located at 1386 S. Federal Highway in Pompano Beach. Call 954-224-6120, or visit facebook.com/bluewillys.
