Leave your diet at home, ignore the neighborhood, and follow your snout to the waft of barbecue coming from the large, black smoker parked alongside the Smoking Pig BBQ. The ribs and pulled pork are delectably, fall-off-the-bone.
Our Refined crew went down to Santa Clara ahead of the Pac-12 Championship game (Go Dawgs!) and visited a top BBQ joint called The Smoking Pig. They have a lot of great stuff on the menu including something called Wolf Turds. Of course, we were intrigued and had to find out what’s in them. Watch the video and check it out.
The outdoors pit on Coleman Avenue now has the city of San Jose’s seal of approval. Let the smoking begin! Paul Reddick’s newest Smoking Pig BBQ barbecue operation, the third, is up and running. The opening comes about five years after Reddick, a former high-tech sales manager, first turned his hobby into a business, packing a joint on North Fourth Street in San Jose with ‘cue lovers.
Equally worthy of an excursion is San Jose’s Smoking Pig BBQ, opened by former semiconductor sales manager Paul Reddick in 2011. I ordered a combination platter ($14.95) and was rewarded with moist, powerfully smoked brisket and honking big, meaty ribs, painted with a faintly sweet glaze reminiscent of Chinese barbecue in the Outer Sunset.
The uncertainty of today’s job market is a good enough reason to take the risk of being our own boss. Yes, it is not easy, but it is highly rewarding. Paul Reddick, CEO of the Smoking Pig BBQ Company, took this risk and made it work for him.

From Our Customers
"The Smoking Pig is some of the best BBQ I have ever put in my mouth. I started with the Chicken Lollipops. The flavor was out of this world, the bacon perfectly cooked along with tender juicy chicken."
Everything we ordered seemed like it was made from scratch right there on location. We popped in for a quick take out order and we were not disappointed. The brisket fell apart and tasted superb.
Awesome BBQ Join. Food was excellent, enjoyed the Burnt ends! Service was wonderful and portions were large and fulfilling. Will eat at this location on my next trip to the area.
