Smoking Pig BBQ, San Jose - Southern style ribs/brisket; Peanut Butter Pie w/ Pics

hhc | Feb 20, 2012 08:20 PM

CASH ONLY sign, there's an ATM machine in there. Tried out Smoking Pig BBQ for dinner Fri 2/17/12. It's on 4th & Commercial, they have their own parking lot so it's FREE parking.

They make all there food & sauces there. Ribs are Southern style w/ dry rub. There's a smoker in the back parking lot.

We weren't too hungry so we shared a Two Meat Combo - choice of 2 meats, 1 cornbread, & 1 side dish for $13.95. Choice of meats were: 3 pork spare ribs; chicken leg quarter; 2 Louisiana hot links; 6oz pound pulled pork; 3 slices beef brisket. We picked pork spare ribs & pulled pork. I thought the ribs were tasty, pulled pork some of it was dry, but that can depend on the pieces you get. Add some of the sauces on the table. They have a mustard one, honey one, & spicy one. We both liked the Honey one the best. Side we picked was Mac & Cheese - it was tasty. Corn bread is just 1 muffin so we got an extra one for 95c. Extra side dish of greens for $2.95 - mix of cooked greens - we liked it. Plastic forks/knives on the table w/ paper towels.

Save room for the Peanut Butter Pie - a slice for $4.45. We shared it. It's a homemade pie made w/ chocolate cookie based crust; not too sweet peanut butter filling, & tons of whipped cream w/ drizzle of chocolate sauce. We liked it.

Separate bathrooms. One TV, some quiet music played in the background. Friday night at 8pm they have live music, we didn't stay for.

Owner is named Paul, and he comes around to all the tables. Very nice guy.
