Smoking Pig BBQ Company in San Jose
With the exception of Jon-Jon's, BBQ usually isn't something that comes to mind when I'm back in San Jose. But this place (1144 North 4th Street, 408-380-4784) came in as a recommendation a few months ago, and fortunately downtown San Jose now has a cool bike sharing program where I could grab a bike from a kiosk right across the street from my hotel and head up there for lunch, which is exactly what I did today.
And yes, I liked my combo of ribs and burnt ends. The Kansas City hot sauce in particular was awesome, as were those collard greens. Now, some parts of the meat were a tad on the dry side, so my preference is still to just wait for my next run to Austin. But if that's not a choice, then I'd consider coming here again. Indeed, they also had a fried catfish that might be worth trying.
