The Blue Pig, Moab: 2 reviews and 9 photos

Done twice: 2011 and 2014.

The nice plus about hiking trips is burning tons of calories and getting to eat anything I want to. We hit the Blu Pig mighty hungry after a long day at Arches, and left feeling like well-stuffed hogs. BBQ is one of those cuisines that you just can't make to please everyone; people like what they like as far as spices and sweetness, wet or dry, etc. so if it ain't like home, it just ain't right, you know? So you have to have an open mind when braving the brisket in the Great Unknown.

If you aren't a carnivore, stop reading: this is not the place for you. They do their own smoking, and the menu runs the gamut of chicken to ribs to catfish. We both ordered up pulled-pork sammies - huge, on soft, toasted asiago buns topped with slaw - and sweet 'tater fries. The pork comes dry so we had fun trying out the three sauces on the table. Neither of us could finish the buggers but we'd seen this applewood-roasted pecan pie on the menu and had to give THAT a shot. OMG. Folks, save room?

We had pulled-pork sliders second time; same yeah-baby-nummy.

All-in-all, a fun place with a good selection of bottled beer served up with frosty glasses, outdoor patio, and blues on the sound system; what's not to like? We ate early on visit #1 and later on visit #2; service was quick, friendly and attentive both times. They have a menu for little buckaroos, and you can get your order to go. Open daily 11:30 AM to close?which is whenever things get pokey.
