The Smokin’ Pig is now open in the old Stoney’s BBQ location in Anderson. The fourth Smokin’ Pig location in ten years.
“Good food,” writes Dorothy Dillon in a Google review. “Plentiful servings. Fresh. Served fast. Friendly servers. Brisket is very tender. No fake smoked flavoring here.”
The Smokin’ Pig is a family-owned barbecue joint. main menu items are chopped pork, brisket, chicken, and ribs.
The SC BBQ Association has named this place one of the Top 100 BBQ houses in the state.
Here is an excerpt from their review:
Also nice are the ribs which are dry rub with four sauces on the table, if you want them. And while the upstate mustard sauce was my favorite of their four, the ribs are best eaten as they serve them which is fall off the bone tender.
The barbeque, however, is better with their thinnest vinegar and pepper sauce to add a bit of pep.
Like most modern restaurants they use an Old Hickory smoker (one often also finds Southern Pride smokers) to prepare their meats and that does a good job at cooking it low and slow so as to make it tender and juicy while adding just the right amount of smoke.
