Miami's Best Ribs Get Smoked...

Takes a Big Man to Cook a Big Slab...



If there is a better way to end your Saturday night than with a boatload of ribs from Fat Man, I haven't found it yet. Like all of Ben's customers, we were treated like VIP's, and seated around the huge grill/smoker, where he was smoking some enormous slabs. We started off with some broccoli (or as I like to call them, green ribs), wow that was weird, and some nice garlicky shrimp, all washed down with a can of refreshing pineapple soda. We were busy absorbing the smoke, literally, it was covering our pores and hair, it was like being inside a juicy rib. Or BEING a juicy rib. He's still the best-no one comes close. Pure smoke, tenderoni, unobtrusive but tangy Fat Man's BBQ sauce (coming soon to a grocery store near you). When we got there, the ribs were about 15 minutes from being done. No rib gets pulled before its time, the smoking process has to be respected, and Ben is a perfectionist. Relaxing outside the Take One Strip Lounge parking lot, chatting with the locals, just another Saturday night, as I like to say, in Miami. Get some to go, too, of course...
