Phil’s BBQ – San Diego, CA – BBQ Video

Among the most popular San Diego restaurants are those that serve the best steaks and barbecue you’ll ever taste.

After hearing that my father-in-law waited over an hour and a half for BBQ at Phil’s BBQ in San Diego (and wasn’t a bit unhappy after eating what he called some of the best BBQ he’s ever had), I did some searching for a couple of video’s of this BBQ mecca not far from our Southern border.

The first video is courtesy of WonderlandSD:

The second video is from Man v. Food:

Check out the Live Cam’s from their San Diego and San Marcos locations HERE and more times than not you’ll see a line wrapping around the building.

Meatup – Smoke City Market

We had a great showing (and a great time) at the Meatup last night at Smoke City Market to eat copious amounts of BBQ and pair that with wine from Gnarly Head Wine. I want to thank Calvin Lee, Chris Voss, Marla Schulman, Matthew Meeker, Rebecca Quinn, Jim TechFrog Alden, Eva Crawford, Gary May, and Mike Allen.

I will be doing a complete post with wine pairing pics and favorite BBQ items chosen by the group, but here are a few pictures:
