Little Pig BBQ in Belton, Missouri
|Little Pig BBQ brisket sandwich
Tonight I visited the Little Pig BBQ in Belton, Missouri. Established in 2010, The Little Pig is located at the far east end of Belton’s historic old downtown Main Street. According to their website, “The Little Pig BBQ is an experience in pit barbeque and down-home, old fashioned barbeque the way it used to be. Nothin’ fancy here… just award winning barbeque smoked daily and served up fresh.”
I arrived around 5:00 on Monday. This is a restaurant where you order at the counter and seat yourself and they bring your food out to you. The building looks like a residential home from the outside and the sign is pretty small, so make sure you put it in your GPS or you might drive right by it. The small dining room seats around 25 people. I ordered their large brisket sandwich, fries and a drink and my order was around sixteen dollars. They have a self-serve drink station, which is nice. Once I ordered I found a table and waited about 10 minutes for them to bring me my food.
The brisket was served on a hamburger bun shredded with sauce on it. It was a really good sized sandwich. I took a bite and my first thought was that there was too much sauce on the sandwich. The meat was tough and chewy and I couldn’t really taste the flavor of the meat because it was doused with sauce. I’m not a fan of the shredded beef sandwich because not only is it a messy sandwich, but you don’t get as much flavor as you do with sliced brisket. The sandwich was also only luke warm when they served it.
There are two kinds of sauces that they offer, a regular sauce and a spicier sauce. I tried both with my fries. The regular sauce was a standard barbecue sauce with a small spicy kick to it. The spicy sauce obviously had more of a kick, but wasn’t too spicy at all. I preferred the spicy sauce. The fries were served baked potato wedge cut.

This was my first visit to Belton on my quest and was stop number 29 overall. Another milestone reached, as I’m 40% done!
