We saw this place on the side of the road and decided that we must stop to have our lunch there. We have to say that we were very impressed. It goes to show that by focusing on a small menu, he has perfected all of it! We will be back

Sam explained to us the secrets of smoking and thus cooking pork. He uses a couple of Yoder smokers which are built like assault tanks. I was so impressed by the results he achieves with his smokers, that I plan to buy a Yoder smoker in the near future. Thanks Sam for sharing with us. Regards, Michel & Maryse Sutton,... More

We are a couple from Sutton, QC visiting Osoyos with friends from Edmonton and while doing the wine degustation... we found that little place. Wow very good pulled pork and especially ribs and sauce. Back home I'm sure I will miss that House of Hog! a bit far to take it home. thanks.

We had our wedding at the Burrowing Owl Winery and asked Sam to provide the "rehearsal dinner" for 45 people. He brought all the food to the winery and set it up in the penthouse. We had the pulled pork, ribs, beans, slaw and buns. It was fantastic. He also provided a popurri of sauces that were all fantastic. It... More

We live in Oliver. Every year we await his return, every year we weep at his last day. I haven't tried the beef brisket yet, that's first on my list upon the season opening. I'm a hard core fan of the House of Hog. I'm also blunt about food reviews, so I wouldn't give a 5/5 easily. I believe in... More
