MIAMI, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of its extensive list of new attractions this year, The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition is featuring new food vendor, Juicy's, the leader in outdoor dining and special event food concessions. Juicy's will feature a 100-foot, 27-ton tractor-trailer named the "Outlaw Grill." With a cooking area 22-feet long and 6-feet wide, The Outlaw Grill is the world's largest mobile outdoor grill capable of cooking 1,000 foods simultaneously.
