Wolf Turds
Named by some ol'cowboy sitting by a campfire in deep east texas, this jalapeno stuffed with cheese and smoked sausage, wrapped in bacon and smoked for two hours will make your taste buds dance!
Chicken Lollipops
Marinated, rubbed, wrapped in bacon and smoked, just grab the handle and enjoy!
Potato Grenade
Take a large spud, bake it, core it out, toss in a pile of shredded cheeses, a wolf turd and some of our famous Mac'N'Cheese, close it up, wrap in bacon and toss it on the smoker for a couple hours. A real taste explosion!

My husband loves Bar B Q so we are acquainted with many restaurants with b b q. We were both very pleased with menu. I'm a vegetable girl and they are very good here. Would recommend to everyone.

Although it looks small, looks simple, in the middle of no where (as far as I am concerned), as soon as you step out of the car and take a look behind the restaurant you see the smokers - where all the magic happens. The...More

Got two brisket sandwiches. Brisket was very tough and not a lot of flavor. Doesn't compare to Texas brisket. Just wanted the sandwiches, but they don't sell just sandwiches. Had to order a side. Potato salad was very good. $30 for two sandwiches.

The adequate place for meat lovers, even though or main dish was a little dry in my opinion (whereas my friend thought it was perfect). Anyway, the service was fast & friendly and the overall experience was very good. Would I come again? Yes!

The fatty brisket was great, but the lean brisket was dry. This is probably to be expected. Sides are very tasty. Interestingly, they serve white rice with their meals. I’d rTher have almost anything else. The ribs are totally amazing. And great service, too.

Being from the south it’s pretty tough to find some really good BBQ out here. Smoking Pig does a really good job with their meats and their key lime pie is really good. It’s one of my few go to’s for real BBQ.
