Shorty's (BBQ?) in Palm Beach Gardens on PGA

To understand the smokefree issue with Shorty's, one must understand Shorty's history. I was brought up in Miami. I had the best Q at Shorty's, this was in the 70's. At that time everything they cooked was smoked. I can remember seeing and smelling the smoke from my home blocks away in Grove estates. However Dade County decided it was a health issue to have all that good smelling smoke competing w/the exhaust fumes on Dixie Hwy. So dont be so quick to ditch Shorty's. They would have had to close down if they didnt comply.
