    Heading down to Orlando this Sunday for some business. See there are a few of you in the area....

    Any suggestions for some good BBQ in the Orlando area? Unfortunately, I'm staying on I-Drive....ie. across from the massive convention center. That said, I'm somewhat limited to that area of town. I actually lived in Casselberry during my college years in the 90's, so I realize I'm not in the best area of Orlando. Certainly in the tourist area though! Ugh...

    BertMor, I'm also heading to Boca for business in December. It'll be my first time there....looking forward to it!
    Psychedelic Smoke BBQ.....coming to a competition near you.

    The best BBQ in Orlando, in my opinion is Four Rivers Smoke House, in Winter Garden and Winter Park. It is the best because the meat is well seasoned, well smoked, just as I would do it at home. They do it right. Sauce is very good too. I live by the Winter Garden restaurant, and it always has people waiting to get in. That's a good sign. Winter Garden is a little bit away from I Drive/Convention area.

    Next and pretty good is Bubbalou's Bodacious BBQ on Kirkman and Conroy Road, near Universal Studios. It is pretty close to I Drive, but on the other end. Good, but not as good as Four Rivers.

    Something that is close on I Drive is Smokey Bones, a chain BBQ restaurant that is owned by Darden (Olive Garden and Red Lobster). I have not tried their BBQ, just ribs. For me I would rather get BBQ from a non chain restaurant.

    Another that is on I Drive is Sonny's BBQ. This place is not for the BBQ purist, because I think that what they do is cheap BBQ, which is reflected in their price. Their meats lack the depth and flavor of real good slow smoked BBQ.
