REVIEW | Get ready to pig out at Pig Out BBQ, the newest BBQ joint in The Annex

Patio season is sadly over with the weather getting colder everyday but that doesn't mean you can't have your BBQ ribs! Pig Out BBQ, a popular BBQ joint offering affordable and delicious BBQ ribs, wings, briskets and more. Lucky for us Torontonians, they just opened a new location on Spadina Ave. at Harbord St.!

You will immediately notice the store front with wooden banner with their signature pig logo. Because of the location, the lunch crowd is mostly U of T students and at dinner time, there's a lot of takeouts for the local residents.  Of course, you can dine in as well as their space is pretty big and cozy for a BBQ joint with a newly installed fireplace and a big screen TV.

Chris, the owner of Pig Out BBQ, started out in the food industry working in the kitchen but left to work in sales. The corporate world wasn't for him and his love of food eventually led him to start his own business with Pig Out BBQ.

We wanted to try a little big of everything so Chris recommended the Pig Out Platter:

Ribs, smoked sausage, pulled pork, wings, beef brisket with coleslaw, pickles as well as large trimmings: mac'n cheese & fries (double fried)

The Pig Out Platter is recommended for 2-4 people, depending on how much each person can eat. We weren't able to finish it all but did a fairly good job!  Our favorites from the platter were the ribs and wings. Ribs are a great size with a delicious rub and it's not over boiled to be fall-off-the-bone, which is good. A tip for those that love spiciness, take advantage of their house made hot sauce as well (on every table)!

With their own smoked in the kitchen, all the smoking is done in-house so if you're in a carnivorous mood for BBQ meats, give this place a try.
