... and the guys behind Miami Smokers, a local outfit that’s hell-bent on curing, smoking and doing unspeakably delicious things to slabs of heritage-breed pork, soft-opening Monday. (This way to the slideshow.)
Meet Andres and James. They’re the duo behind this operation. Yep, just two locals with a hankering for a properly smoked slab of pig. You get it.
Previously, you could only sample their wares at a handful of spots around town. But now, they’ve gone and created their own shop with wood-paneled walls, barrels for aging ale and vinegar, and a beer-bottle chandelier hanging overhead. It’s a good look.
Now, along with curing slabs of bacon, they’re instituting the city’s first dry-aged pork program. Loins, chops... all waiting for you to take home. But you’ll also find salami, prosciutto, fresh sausage and, yes, their infamous candied bacon and bacon-studded Rice Krispies Treats.
Oh, and good news: they’re working on transitioning from a deli to a full-fledged sandwich shop.
Yes, you can get bacon with that.
