BBQ, Palm Beach-Style
I freely admit I'm a barbeque junkie.
Having spent the greater part of my life in Texas, it's just becomes part of your DNA.
Back home when I needed a barbeque fix, it usually meant a trip to Cousin's, or Angelo's or Sonny Bryan's in Big D.
But here in the Palm Beaches, finding a favorite barbeque hangout is a little more challenging. That's why I got all excited reading how June is "BBQ Month" at the Palm Beach Ritz-Carleton.
I'm sorry, but the Ritz is maybe the last place I would think about when it comes to barbeque.
Anyway, I had to find out more, so Pam and I made the trek down Ocean Blvd. to Temple Orange, the eatery at the Ritz featuring a different barbeque meal special each week in June.
And I have to be honest -- I wasn't disappointed. My barbeque bento consisted of baby back ribs, sweet potato fries, apple-celery slaw and peach cobbler. You can see it in the picture above.
Almost as good as what I got in Texas, except the view of the Atlantic does beat the street scenes in Cowtown.
All the Ritz needs to do is add a mechanical bull and they could give Billy Bob's a run for the money.
