Closer Look: Carousel BBQ in Deerfield Beach

It’s 4 o’clock on a sunny Sunday afternoon when a young man dashes from his car, up the short flight of steps, and through the doors into Carousel BBQ in Deerfield Beach. Almost breathless, he slaps both hands on the order counter and asks the woman at the cash register if there’s any pulled pork left. “Sorry, but we just ran out,” she says, her bright smile softening the blow of the bad news. “We’ll have more tomorrow, though.”

It’s a familiar situation at the newly opened restaurant, where — for the past two months — chef-owner Leroy Jones has been serving up his Memphis and Georgia-style barbecue and Southern soul food. “Every day, we go through most everything we make,” says Jones.
