About the Iron Pig

About the iron pig

Once upon a time, two guys named Rex and Justin had a hankering for true American Southern BBQ and after many trials and tribulations, decided to open a restaurant….this is the story of down home good eats!

In the summer of 2014, Rex and myself (Justin) brought our dream to reality and opened a smoked barbecue restaurant in Flower Town, outside of Chengdu. This was an ambition that we’d held onto for a long time, building resources and knowledge which culminated in this major event in our lives.

Now, one year later, we have new location in the popular Tongzilin neighborhood of Chengdu, down the street from our friends Mike’s Pizza Kitchen, Red Beard Burgers, and Johnny 5 Donuts. This new location offers the same delicious barbecue at a much more convenient location. We hope you visit us!
