My guess is, it's not actually a 'shrub' but is an herbaceous weed. I'm guessing in the Joe Pye Weed family. And hey, maybe we all had plans for Sunday dinner lol

something about it reminds me of Melianthus major which is grown in central florida but does have issues here (pests mainly). without better pictures, it's hard to tell for sure. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/57943/

oh yes. rib dinners from the smoker!

You're probably close(r). I can't match those weird seedy looking things using a Joe pyeweed guess.
