Growing up in Edisto Beach (population: 90 when Bo was an adolescent), a small island eight miles from Charleston, South Carolina, Bo was brought up on authentic family-made barbecue and was a vegetable farmer on his family's farm with his brothers.

True love was is what convinced Bo to settle in Miami, where he married his sweetheart, Diane, a teacher at Crestview Elementary in Miami Gardens. After a stint at a Broward sports-bar, he ventured out on his own. His two daughters and son help out with the family business -- taking food orders, restocking supplies, handling finances, even throwing out the trash. "They love it," Bo says.

As the smoke spreads so does the number of customers as word spreads about the authentic home-made genuine barbecue. Bo's message is simple: "No one leaves hungry." With free samples of meat and recipes of secret sauces dating back to 1972, this Carolina native won't let you leave the lot until you're fully satisfied.
