I work at LPL Financial and every other Friday you all would come in a food truck with a smoker attached! I knew it was going to be good and I've been in love since. recently moved back to SD to actually find the POWAY location now that it is open. I absolutely LOVE the Brisket and Mac/Cheese!! This place is like wining the lottery

We have had the privilege of enjoying BBQ in Austin Texas and Memphis Tennessee. Smok'n J's in Poway far surpasses Memphis BBQ and is equal to Austin's, if not better. The brisket literally melts in your mouth. Additionally, the care and support from the staff in preparing our catering event for my husband's 75th birthday celebration was extraordinary in every way, something we appreciated in a time when good service is harder to find. Together, it makes Smok'n J's on Midland Road in Poway a 5-star (equivalent Michelin grade) mouthwatering and soul satisfying experience.

Brisket Taco

Had a brisket and a chicken taco for lunch- it was so good! I am picky about tacos and always on the hunt for my favorites. We are Poway locals and like to go to Smokin J's to support a local business with great food!

Pulled Pork

Huge fan of all of their meats really. I always get pulled pork, baby back ribs and brisket. I can't decide on just one so I get them all.

Grilled Cheese

Everything we've tried has been great but the grilled cheese sandwich with smoked chicken was so good that I crave them! And the smell of that smoker is divine!
