not strictly an Orlando question, but you are all so helpful

This is not strictly an Orlando question, but you are all so helpful on this forum that I though that I'd give it a go and see if anyone can help.

I'm trying to find out the name of a bbq/ribs restaurant that we visited a couple of years ago on a trip to Florida.

It's not actually in Orlando it was kind of much further down and I seem to think it was maybe around the point where you would turn west to head over to the west side of Florida around the Everglades.

It was a small shack type place, and I'm fairly sure that 'shack' may may well have been in the name, plus something pig related too! My husband bought a t-shirt from there (we don't have the t-shirt any more otherwise I'd know the name!, and the t-shirt itself had pigs on it which is why I'm thinking pig may be in the name.

This is really vague and I'm so sorry!

Hopefully someone can help!!

thanks hawkeye, that list is fab, just been through it all and not spotted it though, maybe it either isn't listed or doesn't exist anymore. It was a small business not a chain, so maybe it's gone out of business.

There are sooooo many barbeque places in Florida that are designed as old shacks. Some actually are old shacks, many have the word "shack" in their name, and some form of pig or pigs in their logo.... and they all sell t-shirts too! Without a bit more information than that, you might be on a "mission impossible", but good luck in your search!
