Located in San Jose, Smoking Pig BBQ has brought authentic Southern barbecue to the area, and has done so with rapid success. Starting in a backyard, owner Paul Reddick had a love for smoking meats, and simply did it as a hobby. His wife Jessica had a love for business and saw that she could take his passion and turn it into something bigger than what it was. The couple started Smoking Pig, and haven’t looked back since, owning and operating the restaurant together as a team. They have brought the family style atmosphere into their location, providing a welcoming environment paired with excellent food.Highly regarded in the area, Smoking Pig BBQ, brings character and culture into the community, and seeks to please each customer. Their extensive menu is rich, flavorful, and prepared with care, taking no shortcuts. Their Burnt Ends are a popular item, a fatty brisket smoked twice, and it provides a sweet crispy outside, with a tender succulent inside. The Pork Spare Ribs are also a fan favorite, smoked at a low heat for a long period of time just like all of their other meats, providing for a rich smoky flavor distinct to Smoking Pig. Their Beef Brisket is the best in the Bay Area and is a must try, and it should be noted that all of their meats are seasoned with their house dry rub, and require no sauces to be enjoyed, although the restaurant provides four different choices of sauces, so try them all.Paul and Jessica take pride in their process, and it has gained them vast notoriety in the area, as well as across the country. The restaurant has garnered several awards in the past few years and rightfully so. Smoking Pig BBQ has earned multiple accolades from The Metro including Best in Silicon Valley as well as 2013 and 2015 Michelin Guide Recommended. What makes them the most unique is their meats come straight from the smokers and put directly into the warmers until they are ready to be served. A lot of other barbecues in the area do not do this, and it just shows how Paul, Jessica, and their team go the extra mile. When seeking a comfortable atmosphere and authentic barbecue, look no further, Smoking Pig BBQ delivers and is sure to satisfy.
