BBQ Joint of the Week – Phil’s BBQ – San Diego

A good friend of mine turned me on to this place about a year ago and now every time I go down to San Diego it is a must that I stop at Phil’s BBQ (they are opening a location in San Marcos, but I always hit up their Point Loma location).

Here’s where they are at:

Here’s what appears to be a commercial for Phil’s, but regardless, it makes me hungry just looking at it:

If you want to see how long the wait is (there generally is a wait of some sort, which of course means everything positive about their cue) you can check out their live cam that shows the line outside their door here

Even though I’m a lover of pretty much all things one could BBQ, I stick to the baby back ribs and beef ribs when I’m there. They cook them just right where they are almost fall off the bone yet so incredibly tender. Love their sauces as well and could satisfy my Phil’s craving just sopping some up with a biscuit. Owner Phil Pace has put together an amazing BBQ Joint even though he wasn’t a grand champion or renowned pitmaster (though he has come to be both in his own right).

Search for the Smoker

As many of you already know, my smoker was ‘taken’ from my backyard many months ago. It was a 22″ Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker™ Smoker. I enjoyed having it (while I had it) and smoked many a pork shoulder, brisket, and on occasion some baby back ribs. It did require a lot of baby sitting to keep the temperature perfect, but after a few weeks, I had my schedule down where I could really do a good job with it.

So now I’m on a quest for a new smoker. I’ve been recommended the following and would love some advice and feedback on other smokers:

Traeger Pellet Grills
Smokey Mountain Grills
UDS
The Big Green Egg
The Stump’s ‘Baby’ Smoker

I’ll keep adding to the list as people recommend additional smokers and once I’ve made a selection I’ll post of photo as well as photos of the finished product it produces.
