You’ll want this tasty barbecue for your Labor Day weekend

BBQ catering at it’s best, get this special, while you still can, from Smokin’ Gator BBQ in West Palm


I’m thinking there’s a good chance we’ll be craving some decent ‘cue over the long Labor Day weekend. So I offer you this handy link to the “Ultimate Barbecue Guide of Palm Beach County” our digital team compiled last year and recently updated. Granted, this isn’t Austin or Memphis or any other national barbecue destination. But we do have our smoky charms. Consider the father-son team of pit masters behind Smokin’ Gator BBQ in Lake Clarke Shores. Bob and Paul Shalhoub are lawyers by day, which explains why their good grub is available only on holidays and some special events.

This weekend, they’re smoking enough meat to feed the town – baby back ribs, smoked wings, prime beef brisket, brisket burnt ends, sweet-tea grilled chicken, plus appetizers and sides. They’re taking orders through today, by phone at 561-644-8845, by email at smokingatorbbq@gmail.com

The gas vs. electric cooking debate: Fire away

As I watch forests and town on fire around the world, especially around California, I can feel to the bone the destructive power of this gift from God. Fire is probably the one thing that propelled mankind from being to a beast to this glorious stage of development. But perhaps God is giving us a very warm and vivid hint that unless we mend our profligate...
