Jim's Famous Chili con San Diego

I placed a big order from Jim's Backyard Barbecue for a multi-family birthday get together.We had about 13 people and ordered the brisket, babyback ribs, pulled pork, smoked chicken, chili, mac n cheese, cowboy caviar, beans, and cornbread.It was a great meal.The meat was so tender and flavorful.We all ate so much.The group raved the most about the brisket and the pulled pork.The brisket, pulled pork, chili, chicken, cornbread, and cowboy caviar were my personal favorites.Amazing!Also, the portions are huge.Jim was also a pleasure to deal with.He answered all my questions prior to submitting the order, delivered the food exactly on time, and was super friendly to chat with.Overall, it was a great experience.

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 :)

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!

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

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!
