Pig Out on Connecticut’s Best BBQ

Pig Rig BBQ owner Daniel Lanigan – an Army scout veteran – started his career cooking and selling hot dogs out of his restored food truck, The Dastardly Dog, in 2006. Having those skills and a passion for authentic, pit-smoked barbecue, the next logical step for Daniel was to start a BBQ food truck — which is exactly what he did. The Pig Rig BBQ food truck was born in 2013, followed by the restaurant’s opening at 950 Yale Avenue, Wallingford, CT the next year.

Led by chefs with years of country club kitchen experience, Pig Rig BBQ offers up fast, reliable service and insanely tasty and moist BBQ pork, chicken, and baby back ribs at great prices. Dishes come with a choice of sides that perfectly complement the abundance of meat – including cornbread or sweet potato bread, red cabbage slaw, smoked mac & cheese, and Cowboy Beans (our biggest hit).

Main Menu

Pig Rig specializes in catering birthday or graduation parties, family reunions, bachelor parties, company events, group outings, rehearsal dinners and a bunch of other special occasions. Fully customizable menus make for a cost-effective way to feed groups of all sizes. Reserve our brand new dining area in the restaurant or have the BBQ come to you in our Hot Rod food truck and mobile smoker.
