Jim's Famous Chili con San Diego

Jim's Backyard Barbecue never disappoints.  The brisket, chicken, and smoked cheeses are out of this world.  Highly recommend!

Jim's custom made orders have been the hit of the party more than once now.  Our favorite is the smoked Turkey and the chili is great too, especially in the fall and winter months.  Thank you, Jim!

I had never tried a ghost kitchen before but let me just say, WOW!  I'll be re-ordering again!!

The brisket, chicken, and ribs were very delicious, some of the best I've ever had. Usually BBQ chicken doesn't do it for me, but Jim's chicken was so tender and perfectly flavored. Definitely will look to eat here again and maybe bring a few friends with me too :)

About Jim's Backyard Barbecue

More then 30 Years of Smoked Excellence

Located in Mira Mesa, CA with 30 years of smoking and grilling experience I started Jim's Backyard Barbecue with one smoker and one grill, the encouragement of friends and family and a vision to create the most authentic Texas smoke flavor around.  Today there are seven smokers creating the menu you see here and more on the way.  From pellet grills, stick burners, lump and charcoal briquettes, combined with Just the right wood to compliment the food, and not overpower the flavor, every combination of smoke is just a few hours or a few days away.  Give us a try, you will not be disappointed!
