I feel like BBQ is one of those universally loved genres of food. "I'm not really in the mood for a pulled pork sandwich" -said no one ever. There is a real hidden gem in Errol, NH just over the Maine border that has perfected the art of BBQ. And don't let the name scare you off! It's called Hawg Trawf.

I'll admit Hawg Trawf isn't the most appetizing name for a restaurant. It sounds like the patrons are expected to gather around a long open container full of food and eat without utensils while simultaneously making animal noises. On second thought, that doesn't sound so bad.

According to onlyinyourstate.com, the people of the Granite State are OBSESSED with this BBQ joint. The ambiance is cozy and feels like you are over a friends house for dinner.

 

The portions are generous and that is an understatement.

And the owners make all of their own rubs and spices so each dish is very unique.

Before you round up your loved ones to head up north make sure you check the restaurant's hours! They are open Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday from 11:30 am to 7:30 pm and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 am to 8:30 pm.
