2. Baby Back Ribs and Sparky's Roadside Barbecue

Since opening in 2011 Sparky's, owned and operated by Hans Seitz and Kevin Kehoe, has become a southern barbecue oasis in the middle of lawyer-and-banker-filled downtown Miami. Ribs here are smoked with apple and hickory wood and come with two sides. We suggest the stewed collard greens and macaroni and cheese.

Grillmaster Mark Wilson came to South Florida via Compton in 2006. In 2009 he was transferred to Miami, where he began selling barbecue to his Liberty City flock. You can usually find him in the Midtown area with a white Ford E-Class toting a nondescript black mesh cage emitting clouds of smoke. Gibson coats his ribs with a secret rub before slow cooking them. Get them with his special vinegar-and-mustard golden sauce. Be prompt though, he sells out quickly.
