Smokey Canyon BBQ Restaurant Review

: A Missouri couple brings their barbecue know-how to Riverside, in an inviting barn-like room inside a neighborhood shopping center. We enjoyed the plump, juicy St. Louis ribs but were less impressed with the chicken and the brisket. The slaw-topped pulled pork sandwich, however, is a winner, and several sauces, including a Carolina-style version that suits the pork, sit on every table. Traditional side dishes---beans, collard greens, baked sweet potato and a satisfying corn on the cob---add to the fun, and you can count on a good cobbler for dessert. A decent selection of beers is offered, too.
