Does anyone know of a book or website that is dedicated to understanding/explaining the Beis Yosef on the Tur? (In a similar way as the Pri Megadim works on the Taz/SHach/Magen Avraham).

I had a whole answer ready to go, but then I realized it's not entirely useful, so here's a comment instead. The ב"ח is technically a commentary on the Tur, but he comments on the B"Y a bit. In addition, the Perishah/Derishah are also technically commentaries on the Tur, but they (the Derishah in particular) address questions in the Tur, often raised by the B"Y. – Seth J Oct 21 '13 at 19:44
