You Got to Try BUBBA-QUES in FLA!

The first one opened in Bronson, not far from Gainesville, FL.  Then another in Chiefland, Lakeland and now in Brandon!  Excellent Real Smoked Pulled Pork and Ribs, with some of the best sauce around!  The atmosphere is awesome too.  Not for the stuffed shirt types!  Stop in when you are in FL and you will not be disappointed!

    What is the opposite of "real smoked pulled pork", do places down there serve up fake smoked pulled pork, inquiring minds want to know!

    Inquiring minds also want to know how much his participation in Bubba-Que's cost.

    Perhaps you are right, but lets err on the side of caution for once and not let this spin into a "kill the new guy" thread. Not directing this comment at you Nocarolina...just that these things usually start with an innocent and often justified suspicion and then get ugly.

    I am hoping the original poster will return with more details.

    Sorry about that, Tony. My post was a gut feeling kind of thing, but I may very well be wrong about this poster. In fact, I really hope that I am.

    I hope you are wrong too. Probably aren't, but I'd rather risk letting a few tricksters get by rather than scaring off someone who is really trying to help.

    To Tony's point, there was just a post on a "Q" place in Beaufort by a first time poster.  The place he loves has been reviewed by the Sterns. 

    So, it does happen.

    Next time up in central Florida, QFan intends to find out for himself about 'ole Bubba-Que.  I hope Ted was right.

    One post and that was it.
    Edit: I just did a little quick online detective work. This guy is Tommy Dunford, the general manager of Bronson Raceway. I guess this BBQ place is a big sponsor.

    Holy moley, I'm not! I cleaned my apartment, watched the Phillies sweep the Mets, made ribs, and did online detective work in the blink of an eye! Give a girl a break, man; I work two jobs and can't get online very much. I'm also very, very fast at looking things up.
     
    Go pick on somebody your own size.

    Wow, I guess Bronson is moving up so to speak, I had no idea Bronson Motor Speedway was still in business, but I don't get out to the woods that much, out much period.  Tiny little town.  At least Chiefland has a little bit of a population, heck they even have Super Walmart.

    Hey, I'm a Yankee fan!  Who cares!

     
    Ah, yes, my dear, that may be so! But please look at the scores for the three games we played vs. the Yankees: May 22 - 7-3 Phils; May 23 5-4 Yankees; May 24 4-3 Phils.
     
    And we are NOT having that argument about Philly sports fans again. I'll put my fingers in my ears, I tell ya! I caught enough sh*t when I was wearing my Ibanez shirt on Long Beach Island...when we won against the Sox 11-6.
     
    Oh, and ladies! That site with that noise. I hit that "mute" so fast you wouldn't believe it.
     
    I just want Mister Whatever-his-name-is to come out of the woodwork and tell us why this Bubbaque is so great. He's so mysterious!

    Let's give Ted the benefit of the doubt.  He may not have that much time to post again.  Maybe he's involved with this joint.  It would be nice to hear from him...

    Back to the subject.  I ate at the bubba-Que in Brandon last night.  I had the rib-pulled pork combo, my wife had the brisket dinner.
    The ribs were dry and tough.  They supplied a plastic knife and fork and the knife wouldnt cut the ribs apart.  When I complained, the server said well they are supposed to be so tender they fall aprt, no need to cut 'em.  She also offered to bring me some more.  I declined as they were so dry I had to douse 'em with sauce to eat them.
    My wife's brisket was moist but shredded, not sliced, no sign of a smoke ring and not even a hint of smoke flavor.  My pulled pork was the only meat item that was acceptable, but still not smokey.
     
    They dont have a beer license and I should have left as soon they told me that.  Whats the point of bar b q without a cold beer?
     
    So, in a nut shell, below average bar b q and a rough experience.  I wont be going back.

    Boy what a tough crowd.  You quickly have dashed my hope of finding decent BBQ in the Tampa area.  I was suspicious because I haven't found any, not because I thought Ted was a shill...lots of folks around here have never seen decent bbq.

    any recommendations?

    There is a tremendous amount of Q places that can't or won't serve beer.  I won't hold that against them.
