Had a nice lunch today at The Pig (630 Weaver Dairy Road). I had the pork sandwich, my husband had the large plate of pork .
The cue was coarsely chopped with a good hint of smoke. The mix included pieces of outside dark bits and a little fat. But, not enough fat to make the plate greasy. The meat was nice and moist.
The hush puppies had a good corn taste and weren't greasy either. The slaw was nicely tart and made a good foil for the meat. The plate included some of those good pickled cucumber slices that the Barbecue Joint used to serve.
One of the daily specials was a Hawaiian plate lunch (house-made sausage, rice, gravy). I used to enjoy an occasional plate lunch in Hawaii so a return visit to The Pig is a necessity. Another interesting item on the menu is pork belly. While I can't remember all the items on the Joint's menu, I thought I recognized some of the dishes from the old menu.
It is nice and bright inside with tables and counter seating. The ice tea was good and the food came almost instantly.
I am happy to have BBQ back on Weaver Dairy.
