Best Comfort Food: Smokin’ Pig


The Smokin’ Pig is located on Clemson Blvd., just about a 10 minute drive from campus. 

Looking for the perfect place to satisfy your craving for a home-cooked comfort meal? Look no further than the Smokin’ Pig.
The extensive menu includes sandwiches, barbeque and combo plates, an entire smoked meats section and a sizeable list of sides like baked beans and mac and cheese, as well as seasonal cobbler and banana pudding to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. 
“Smokin’ Pig is definitely one of my top places to eat. The sweet potato fries are a must every time,” freshman parks, recreation and tourism management major Egan Conrad told The Tiger.
Perhaps just as important as the food itself is the environment. Their four locations in Easley, Pendleton, Williamston and Anderson all feature scratched up tables showing years of Clemson students dining in. Patrons can also step outside for a selection of games including mini golf, bocce bowl and cornhole.
The food takes no more than 10 minutes to come out steaming hot with a selection of sauces from sweet to spicy. If there is no time to dine in, the Smokin’ Pig offers an extensive take out and catering menu which is perfect for tailgating season in the fall.
Come out and experience some of this highly-praised barbeque and classic country atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.!
