A Smokin' Encounter: Captain Ron & FOGO Venture into Apocalypse BBQ in Miami

Miami, a city pulsating with vibrant culture, diverse cuisines, and a fervent love for barbecue. Amidst the culinary whirlwind of Kendall lies Apocalypse BBQ, a haven for meat aficionados and flavor seekers. And in an exciting twist of fate, Captain Ron, the emblematic figure of FOGO Charcoal, embarked on a flavorful journey to explore the secrets behind Apocalypse BBQ's tantalizing offerings.

Upon stepping into the rustic charm of Apocalypse BBQ, it became immediately apparent that this was no ordinary barbecue joint. Nestled amidst the aromas of smoldering wood and sizzling meats, Captain Ron found himself amidst a culinary symphony orchestrated by Aaron, the mastermind pitmaster behind the smokers, and Jeff, the visionary owner and operator.

Diving headfirst into the heart of Apocalypse BBQ's operations, Captain Ron delved into the essence of their smoking technique. Utilizing a harmonious blend of hickory and oak woods, Aaron infuses their meats with a depth of flavor that elevates every bite to culinary nirvana.

Sitting down with Jeff, Captain Ron indulged in a feast fit for the gods of barbecue. The journey commenced with Smokafried wings, a fusion of smoky tenderness and crispy perfection, showcasing the prowess of Apocalypse BBQ's smoking expertise. Next on the menu was the famed brisket bacon, a succulent symphony of smoked pork belly, delicately sliced and pan-fried to crispy perfection, igniting a flavor explosion with every bite. 

But the pièce de résistance awaited Captain Ron in the form of Apocalypse BBQ's signature BBQ platter. A spectacle of carnivorous delights unfolded before him, featuring smoked brisket, tantalizing ribs glazed with Cuban coffee BBQ sauce, and whimsically shaped skull cornbread. Accompanied by smoked mac-n-cheese, lemon pepper coleslaw, beer-battered onion rings, shoestring fries, and house-made pickles, it was a feast fit for royalty.

The secret behind Apocalypse BBQ's culinary triumph lies not only in the quality of their ingredients but also in the passion infused into every dish. With Jeff at the helm, their commitment to freshness and innovation shines through, captivating taste buds and winning hearts one bite at a time.

Their culinary prowess was put to the test in the competitive arena of the Visit Lauderdale Food and Wine Festival, where Captain Ron and Jeff engaged in a friendly showdown. Despite Captain Ron's valiant efforts, Jeff's first-place ribs emerged victorious, a testament to the unparalleled mastery of Apocalypse BBQ's craft.

As Captain Ron bid farewell to Apocalypse BBQ, he carried with him not only the flavors of Miami's barbecue scene but also a newfound appreciation for the passion and dedication driving Jeff and his team. In the smoky haze of Kendall, amidst the flickering flames of the smokers, Apocalypse BBQ stands as a beacon of culinary excellence, beckoning all who seek an unforgettable barbecue experience.

If you should find yourself in or around Miami, make sure to hit this incredible spot.  I have enjoyed the culinary delights of some of the best BBQ in the country and I would put this right up there with any of them.  Thanks to Jeff and company for the warm hospitality and the taste bud tickling meal.  I cannot wait to go back!  Until I do, remember to #GetOutAndGrill and we will see you the next time on The FOGO Life.  Captain Ron…..OUT!
