BBQ Trailer Columbus, OH Thu, 03/11/10 2:18 PM (permalink)
Well we had a report from a good pizza place in Columbus that is connected to a conveinence store:

Now I found a good BBQ trailer that sets up 4 days a week in a conveinence store parking lot at the corner of Pacemont and High St. - Smackies BBQ pit

I've been three times now and not been disappointed.  You can get a huge pulled pork sandwich for $4 and it has a very nice smokey flavor.  The bun is nothing special so next time I might just get it without it.  He has 4 sides (cole slaw, beans, mac and cheese, and greens).  The beans were excellent but the mac and cheese is nothing special.  Almost KFC like in consistency.  I will try the greens next time.  I also got a rib sampler once and they were very good as well.  Smokey and not quite fall of the bone so there was some chew.  Each time I have ordered the hot BBQ sauce which is just a little spicy. 
 
My understanding is that he used to have a restaurant on Cleveland Ave (Smackies) but they didn't make it so he has gone mobile.
 
Here's another review by a local blogger:

I plan to give him a lot of business on Fridays now that the snow is gone.

    There was a Smackies on Hamilton Road between Morse and 161 a year or so ago for about three months before it was shuttered. I tried it once. didn't like it at all.

      I had this again today for lunch.  Great pulled pork as usual.  I am updating because I found out he is offering grass fed brisket on Sundays only.  Also, he has re-named it Ray Ray's Hog Pit.
