There’s no better workday pick-me-up than a delicious BBQ lunch, and there’s no better place to indulge in slow smoked, Southern-style goodness than Cameron Park’s Sierra Smokehouse BBQ & Custom Catering.

The menu at this locally loved joint boasts an impressive selection of meats (including tri-tip, beef brisket, chicken and ribs), side dishes and unique specialties like meatloaf and nachos. I marked the occasion of my first visit by ordering the 1/4-pound Pulled Pork Sandwich, a choice that’s left my mouth watering weeks later. At just $6.50, this hearty helping of smoked-to-perfection pork came served on my choice of bread (sweet Hawaiian roll), a six-ounce daily side dish (mashed potatoes, thank you very much), and a two-ounce cup for the BBQ sauce of my choice. Rather than pre-sauce their meats, Sierra Smokehouse gives your taste buds the freedom to choose between vinegar, tomato or mustard based offerings. Thanks to some help from the friendly staff, I finally settled on the mustard sauce, which not only enhanced my sandwich, but also tasted great between bites of the chili-style Cowboy BBQ Beans I added to my meal for less than two bucks. Exceptional customer service and superior eats will keep me coming back for owner Ed Anhorn’s award-winning cuisine.
