That plume of smoke you see rising by Everglades National Park entrance at Shark Valley is likely emanating from Pit's wood cabin. What's on the grill are juicy ribs, or chicken, or even frogs legs. The double pork sandwich, with perhaps the best pit-cooked pulled pork to be had south of the Carolinas, is topped with crunchy sweet slaw. Sides are great too: tangy baked beans, lightly floured real onion rings, and to wash it down, imported Beck's beer. The eclectic redneck-to-reggae jukebox is big fun, too.
