BALLANTYNE | feature Mama Ricotta's, Bad Daddy's Burger Bar, Cantina 1511 and Paco's Tacos & Tequila. Scibelli, who recently sold Bad Daddy's and Cantina 1511, invited Barry to a tryout of sorts at his newly opened Midwood Smokehouse in Plaza Midwood. Barry served Scibelli a smoked whole chicken, coated in his homemade rub and accompanied by a sauce he created. Two days later, Scibelli hired him as pitmaster. In May 2015, the pair opened a second location in Toringdon Market, bringing a custom-made smoker with them. A Charlotte native, Barry has continued to grow his 'cue credentials, including Barbecue Camp at Texas A&M University and extensive time at storied pits in Texas. His favorite thing on the restaurant's menu? "I'm a ribs guy," he confesses. "I snack on 'em all day long." The interior of Midwood Smokehouse is rustic chic. p r o m e n a d e o n p r o v i d e n c e . c o m Holiday Fun Made Merry Christmas Caricatures 12 - 2 p.m. Roaming Santa & Mrs. Claus 12 - 2 p.m. Carriage Rides 12 - 3 p.m. Santa's Link To Kids December 12 from 1 - 5 p.m. This holiday season, shop, dine and enjoy fun family activities.
