The best advertisement for the new barbecue joint on Front Street is probably as simple as standing outside its front door, closing your eyes and taking in the aroma wafting from the kitchen. The breeze carries a sweet-smoky scent of the holy combination of fire, smoke and meat, enriched with salt and spice and sugar. Notorious P.I.G., which has roots to some famous barbecue joints in St. Louis, wasted no time since its April opening in luring carnivores to its platters of pulled pork, ribs and beef brisket, all smoked over local cherry and applewood. P.I.G. staff fire up the smokers at 4 a.m. every day, often going through as many as 80 racks of ribs at a time. Once they sell out, the doors close—and then nothing but the scent remains.
