Pride and Joy was one of the most highly anticipated restaurant openings in Wynwood in 2012. The barbecue eatery is a partnership among Myron Mixon and five South Florida locals -- Mike Saladino, Chris Mayer, Paul Thielecke, Jose Santa, and Pablo Cardenas. Mixon, who is known as the "the winningest man of barbecue," is a three-time barbecue world champion, judge on TLC's BBQ Pitmasters, and best-selling cookbook author of Smokin' With Myron Mixon. It's the chef's first large-scale restaurant concept -- complete with a draft house, honky-tonk, and beer patio. But despite Mixon's reputation as one of the most loudmouthed, experienced barbecue chefs in the nation, the project has faced many challenges since opening in early November. So far, the cuisine has been inconsistent. On one occasion, the brisket was dry, tough, and difficult to swallow. Seasoned with Mixon's signature 30-ingredient dry rub, the baby-back ribs were excessively charred. Paired with a smooth, sweet peach butter, the cornbread was slightly stale. On another visit, though, the food easily ranked among the best barbecue in the city. In short, the greatest challenge here is consistency.
