Rufus Ribs is a humble, pull-away trailer that, on weekends only, appears in a convenience store parking lot in Boynton Beach's diverse east side. There, Rufus Allen gently stokes his hulking barrel smoker, infusing the savory aroma of slowly smoldering red oak into meaty racks of ribs, honkin' pork shoulders, and wild game. As the name might suggest, ribs are Rufus' premier attraction - manly sized ribs, the sheer girth of which will have you questioning what manner of pig could produce such broad bones. A dinner portion of Rufus' pride ($10) contains four big ol' segments and a choice of two sides, including some truly stellar collard greens. Whole slabs and half slabs are also available ($23 and $12, respectively), as are whole and half chickens ($10 and $8), pulled pork and catfish dinners ($10), and any of the above meats in sandwich form ($7). A velvety slice of sweet potato pie laced with shreds of coconut ($1.25) conjures the South as accurately as any confection could.
