Maxim recently loved on the Coral Springs strip-mall destination Rock n Roll Ribs, owned by Iron Maiden drummer Michael Henry "Nicko" McBrain.
The 57-year-old rocker from London apparently toured enough in the States that he learned to make a mean barbecue.
McBrain (who also plays down here in a group called McBrain Damage), is probably stoked about getting noted for his smoked meat products. His restaurant's signature $60 plate named "The Beast" is named as one of the Five Best Dinners in the nation, alongside foie gras tortellini and braised oxtail stew.
