New! Boca’s Best BBQ & Smokehouse


BOCA RATON, FL – Brothers Scott and Nathan Gibson, owners of Gibson Smokehouse, have joined forces with Chef Dwayne “Dewey” Hooper of Sweet Dewey’s BBQ. The trio of owners have brought a new barbeque experience to South Florida with Boca’s Best BBQ & Smokehouse at 9181 West Glades Road, just west of Lyons Road. The location, formerly known as Sweet Dewey’s BBQ, has doubled its space and rebranded. The restaurant closed temporarily in mid-December and reopened with the full new menu in late December. Boca’s Best BBQ expanded the Sweet Dewey’s space to 1,800 square feet and 80 seats. The new concept will include North Carolina-style smoked barbeque, along with Chef Dewey’s authentic Mississippi barbeque and famous BBQ sauce. Scott Gibson will serve as the Pit Master. A North Carolina native, Scott has been cooking barbeque since he was a child, having a strong passion for backyard cooking utilizing charcoal and wood. A U.S. Army veteran, he served as a cook and was stationed in Germany, Croatia, Macedonia, as well as Georgia, Maryland and South Carolina. Nathan Gibson will serve as a chef and general manager. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Nathan has served as co-manager of Bojangles in Raleigh, N.C., a line chef at Herons at the Umstead Hotel in Cary, N.C., and as a line chef at North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh. Earlier in his career, he was the assistant manager at Hemisphere at the Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport. Boca’s Best BBQ & Smokehouse menu will feature Carolina favorites, including pulled pork, pulled BBQ chicken and fried catfish, all cooked using the restaurant’s custom indoor rotisserie smoker. The restaurant also will serve Kosher-style corned beef and pastrami, Nova smoked salmon, fried chicken, homemade pickles, along with beef jerky and classic North Carolina-style barbecue. Boca’s Best BBQ will also continue to serve Chef Dewey’s classic Mississippi-style menu items including specialty wings and ribs. The restaurant will also serve breakfast. A Chicago native, Chef Hooper, called “Dewey” by his friends, will continue to serve as chef and co-owner, recreating family recipes from his Mississippi-raised mother and grandparents. Chef Dewey caters events of all sizes. He will also continue to sell Sweet Dewey’s BBQ Sauce available in six flavors at the restaurant.
