You can’t be in Miami without having lechon at some point… And owners of Miami Smokers, Andres Barrientos and James Bowers, cure and smoke Heritage Breed pasture-raised pigs in tons of different ways to satisfy to these needs! Chances are you’ve had a taste of their no antibiotic and hormone-free candied bacon in a burger at Kush, in the chicken and waffles at Eating House, or in some ice cream at Azucar. But how about making a stop at their own restaurant in Little Havana?!
“We wanted to be in Little Havana because we wanted to be within the Miami city limits, and it’s what we’re all about,” says Barrientos.
Think croque madame, pork churrasco sandwiches, and weekly grinders served on potato rolls with mustard, pickled onions, mango barbecue sauce, and spicy mayo. Delicious…. Maybe even better than la caja china on Christmas Eve. (Yeah. THAT good!)
No tables at Miami Smokers make it difficult to sit down and have a meal, but its location on 27th Avenue makes it the perfect curbside or quick lunch!
