Mission BBQ fires up brisket and patriotism at second Davie location

Correspondent

Mission BBQ

4412 Weston Road, Davie, 954-488-2543, Mission-BBQ.com

This patriotic-themed, Maryland-based chain, which debuted on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has opened its second South Florida outpost.

It’s also the second Davie location, bordering Weston on the southeast side.

"We just want to be in great neighborhoods with great people,” co-founder Stephen Newton says. “We'll go wherever there are people who love barbecue, love America and her heroes. The Weston community represents that."

Favorites include North Carolina pulled pork sandwich ($6.79), Texas-inspired brisket ($8.79), baby back or St. Louis spare ribs ($2.19-$18.99) and jalapeno-cheese sausage ($5.99). Look for the “black plate special” featuring the brisket burger (market price) and a seasonal side of smoked corn on the cob ($2.19) at the end of May.

"It's oak for smoke,” Newton says. “This works well when you have a 12- to 14-hour smoke time on a brisket or pork. We smoke with real oak hardwood all day, every day."

Desserts ($2.19) include house-made brownies and seasonal specialties, such as Peggy's Peach Cobbler, which is offered through May.

Lunch and dinner are served daily amid corrugated metal, concrete floors, wood furniture, a butcher-block countertop, military and firefighter memorabilia, yellow walls — with one dedicated to 9/11 — and sidewalk seating.

The national anthem is sung at noon daily.
