Where to eat in Prince George: Copper Pig BBQ and Social House

The Copper Pig BBQ and Social House, located on George Street, has recently opened their doors.  The Copper Pig BBQ provides a relaxing adult atmosphere and is a great place to meet up with friends or go on a date with someone special.

The interior feels warm and cozy with the wooden beams above your head, rustic wooden floors beneath your feet and burnt orange and moss coloured walls.  You can get comfortable in a booth, pull up a stool at the bar, grab a seat at the picnic table or sit down at one of their regular tables.  The music playing in the background is at a perfect level and the seating is well spaced so you can talk to the people at your table with ease.

Before your meal arrives you can order a delicious side of corn bread, kabobs or another one of their appetizers.  Their beer and wine list showcases what British Columbia has to offer!  Their beer list features about 20 varieties of beer from different breweries in British Columbia including, Prince George’s locally run brewery, Pacific Western Brewery.  Some non-alcoholic choices include fresh squeezed lemonade, pop served in huge mason jars or a nice cup of tea.

For your main course try their specialty; Kansas City style barbecued beef or pork that is marinated for 24 hours and then prepared with a “low and slow” smoking process.  They make their own dry rubs, chicken brine and 3 signature BBQ sauces.  Is your mouth watering yet?!  There are also some vegetarian and gluten free choices.

There are a few dessert options to choose from and I really enjoyed the brownie kabobs; chunks of chocolate brownies, canned cherries, fresh strawberries skewered then served on top a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce and sprinkled with chocolate pieces.  You could also enjoy one of their warm beverages that are a mix of coffee or tea, liquors, sugar and whip cream.  In the spirit of being downtown they have called their warm beverages “warmers” and each one is named after another local downtown restaurant.  Make sure to ask for the dessert menu so you can take a peek!

Instead of barbecuing outside in the cold winter weather get down to the Copper Pig BBQ and Social House for a deliciously prepared lunch or dinner!
