Those missing chef Kevin Dority’s smoked meats can find them in a new location. This month, South Florida restaurant group Hip Hop Eatery officially relaunched Bo Legs BBQ to expand Miami’s food scene while providing access to affordable food. Located within Skatebird Miami, the restaurant is a partnership between Bo Legs founder and Hip Hop Eatery chef Marco Molinette, whose goal was to breathe new life into a North Miami staple that has been in business for more than 30 years. The menu will focus on oak-smoked meats such as St. Louis-style spare ribs, beef brisket, turkey legs and chicken. Guests can pair each with Bo Legs’ signature sauces and toppings, including longtime staples like mac and cheese, greens, baked beans and corn on the cob. From Thursday to Sunday from 11 am to 9 pm
