Canton: The Pig & Rooster Smokehouse

In the winter, few things warm you up better than a bowl of chili. My roommate was craving a bowl of chili for dinner so a quick search pulled up The Pig & Rooster Smokehouse in CantonThe Pig & Rooster is owned by the same people who own The Chasseur which I’ve previously been to and loved. The space inside is more of a bar with a few arcade games and a few tables.

When we went, there was only one person working the bar so service was a little slow, to no fault of the bartender, he was doing a great job. After briefly looking over the menu, my roommate went with an order of the Smoked Brisket Chili. The chili had hunks of smoked brisket which were tender and delicious, there were also some beans, cheese, chives and sour cream. This chili was a little on the spicy side and it was one of the better/heartier ones we’ve had around the city.

With the chili, my roommate went for an order of the Cornbread. This was a great accompaniment to the chili for soaking up the meaty goodness. This cornbread was a little on the sweet side but still very good and complimented the spiciness from the chili well.



For my meal, I went with the Smoked Ancho Chili and Espresso Rubbed Brisket Sandwich. The brisket was incredibly tender and flavorful. I tossed some cole slaw onto the sandwich and it really came together. I was hoping the ancho chili rub would make the sandwich slightly spicier but it was still awesome. It also came with a side of fries which were delicious but nothing noteworthy.
