Pitmaster’s Smokehouse BBQ is a place you usually pass by when going around Kapitolyo to arrive at your favorite places. It’s enclosed structure could be uninviting too but last week, I finally got to visit this pit.

Although we were still a little full from having some food beforehand, I still wanted to see what the smokehouse had in store. I got dishes from different parts of their menu to sample. On a side note, make sure to sift through their menu well since it’s quite disorganised and cluttered, you might miss something you’d like over what you’ve already ordered.

For the initial crowd of 3 I got an order of Pitmaster’s Smoked Ribs (Php235), Smoked Black Angus Beef Brisket (Php330), Smoked Bacon Strips (Php270), and of course some Pepper Rice because rice is life (Php50).

While waiting for the food we enjoyed looking around the wooden interiors. Unlike most places around Kapitolyo, this place has a lot of room to walk around, even a receiving area boasting their logo imprinted on their wall spanning from floor to ceiling. So if you’re with a party of 5 or 10, this place could easily have accommodate.

The Smoked Ribs came with a side of fries as we opted over rice. It’s been smoked for 7 hours so you really get that smoky and earthy flavor. It was well-dressed too with it’s nice and sweet barbecue sauce. This tender meat was the table’s favorite.

The Smoked Black Angus Beef Brisket came with a side of French Beans for some fiber to go with the protein. It was soft and flaky yet a little underwhelming for its lack of seasoning. Did not taste much of the meatiness either, quite fell flat on my book.

The Smoked Bacon Strips tasted as expected, adequate saltiness and resistant texture precisely because it was smoked. This was balance with lean meat and flavorful fat but not as crispy.

Since we had additional guests I had to get some dessert after they finished off what we couldn’t. Interesting selection of ice cream flavors. Ordered one of each: Double Chocolate, Orange & Ricotta and Pinatutong na Rice from Manila Creamery.

Double Chocolate Ice was made well and tasted like it was made with native chocolate. It was creamy with bold bittersweet taste to it. Pinatutong na Rice interestingly gave me a lingering burnt taste. Orange & Ricotta seemed to be the crowd favorite. Real bits of cheese and fruity balance with none of the bitter aftertaste.

Pits is not just an ordinary meat stop. It does have a lot of potential to be your carnivore go to place. I met one of their owners and from there I felt their desire to give each of their customers a worthy visit every time.

Pork Ribs and Beef Brisket! #EaterPH

Located within the competitive Foodie District that is Kapitolyo, Pitmaster's stands for the love of all things meat. Ribs, briskets, sausages, and more, maybe even a sports game on their 2 TVs hanging from the wall. It's not a sports bar restaurant, they just happen to have the offerings to be one, but they aren't trying to be one, so regular diners don't feel out of place. It's still about the BBQ!

Pork Ribs (270 PHP) 2 pieces
Their bestseller and the reason why we came! Okay, we really came here to taste our local version of Mighty Quinn, as mentioned by a foodie friend who tried both and advised me to try this place out. 180 grams of tender pork slab glazed to a shine. We had the east capitol sauce, their version of bbq sauce that's punchy, but it in calm manner.

Black Angus Brisket (400 PHP) 150 grams
We paired this meaty meal with their sweet tangy hazelnut sauce and the second container contained the brisket juice, which rehydrated the beef to some degree, but it still is rather dry, but the hazelnut sauce masked it well.  I'd stick to their pork ribs, it's their highlight.

Nice ambiance, tender meaty ribs, brisket. The food is flavorful and although you get the flavor of smoked food... It doesn't have the smoke ring and it doesn't smell smoked inside the meat itself. It's a lot of liquid smoke. The sides are well executed, the pulled pork sandwich is good. My daughter liked the truffle pasta. By the way the tables turned, the people seemed to like this place also. I would go back here.

This is a clear case of success getting into their heads before they actually achieved a great deal of it. Less than a few months after opening, they already increased prices by about 15%!

Food is delicious alright but it is no longer reasonably priced. Probably not coming back in the near future. We'll see.

For my lunch break from spring cleaning the condo, beau and I decided to try one of the rib joints in Kapitolyo and new kid on the block, Pitmaster's smokehouse BBQ. Still in their soft opening and I'm very impressed with their extensive menu.

Appetizer chosen by moi was the pulled pork roll with kesong puti dip. Lumpia look a like, very tasty and the dip's good too. We got a generous serving of complimentary nachos for it was Father's Day, father or not, real men get free nachos on the said occasion as per their poster.

I got the grilled cheese sandwich, it's composed of smoked cream cheese, cheddar and bacon slabs. Cheesy satisfaction and generous amount of bacon, bread's a bit hard though PHP235.

Beau got pork ribs with east Kapitolyo sauce, solo plate with 2 sides PHP350. He chose chimichurrri rice and mac and cheese. Very nice presentation of the mac and cheese by topping on some
shreds of purple cabbage but sadly the mac and cheese was bland but the pork ribs were tasty, tender and the sauce was good, the rice was okay too.

I congratulate this new establishment which is well on their way to probably branching out if they continue to improve their food and maintain their friendly customer service. 128077🏻128077🏻

We ate here during their soft opening. The place is quiet big. The ambiance was si cool. It's american style resto. Perfect for a date.

We ordered their Pork Ribs and Angus Beef. Both were so tender, juicy and tasty. Also, I love their sauce. You can choose what sauce you like for the ribs and angus. We tried the Hazelnut sauce and Apple Sauce. Also, there are a lot of side dishes to choose from. We ordered the Elote which was so good and tasty as well as their Truffle fries. Their Mac and Cheese was so delish and creamy. The taste and quality of their ingredients were impressive.

I was surpised the price is not that expensive. Our bill didn't reach 1k. Yet we are stuffed.

Meat lovers' paradise. All good. The sides are exceptional.

We didn't get the ribs because we're too loyal to Rubs Ribs down the road. Instead we got the Angus Brisket and 400g Bacon. For sides we got the most expensive on the menu (since they're already part of the order): 4-cheese Mac n cheese, truffle fries, mashed kamote with bechamel and Cole slaw.

Everything was good. The brisket was tender and full of flavor. The bacon was perfectly smoked.

Definitely coming back soon!
