The state of Florida is home to several successful barbeque chains including Sonny's, Woody's, and Bono's. The taste of barbeque in America is unique to the wood used and the livestock available to cook. St. Augustine's barbeque utilizes both sweet and savory tastes, and meats are cooked and smoked in a wood-fire stove. There are several great places in St. Augustine for a vacationer to dine on Florida pit BBQ.
