There are foodie moments…this was one of them. The best Tri Tip I ever had was at a gas station in Paso Robles sitting on the open tailgate of a truck passing around a wine bottle from a local vineyard. When Pigs Fly BBQ brought me back there.
When Pigs Fly BBQ is a BBQ joint in Vista attached to a Chevron station. It was started by husband and wife team Dave and Tammy who have been doing competition BBQ and catering since 2006. They out grew the home kitchen so they built this space.and North County is better for it.
The style of BBQ is mainly Texas and Kansas City. Everything is smoked (they have a serious smoker which you’ll see in a second)
This makes me so happy..you have no idea. This is the kind of place i want to bring Chefs to because they will understand.
Brisket, pulled pork, and mac and cheese.
The Brisket was lean with a true smoke ring around it, the pulled pork was probably some of the best I have had ( it had a sweetness..either from brown sugar or molasses . I asked but they were giving away no secrets) The BBQ sauce was i think tomato based with vinegar. The mac and cheese was insane. I’m not a mac and cheese guy and I tore through it 5 cheeses and perfect pasta.
Meat, meat , meat , meat, glorious meat
and this bad boy an “Ole Hickory Smoker” you’re talking 10 to 11 grand new.
I would just go there. The true will sit and eat at the gas station…but I understand you can get take out as well.
