Corbin’s Q @ La Jolla Open Aire Market

Sun rises in east
Red oak smoke billows from grill
BBQ rib breakfast awaits.

Scent of red oak is in the air.  I follow like a lemming to the sea.  Smoky aroma guided me through the La Jolla farmer’s market to Corbin’s Q.  Faye of Faye’s Fork told me I could get some good bbq from Corbin’s Q.

I met Corbin and he told be about his Q and gave me some samples to try.  Good guy.

I enjoyed watching the flames caramelizing the bbq sauce on the baby back ribs and charing the meat on Corbin’s grill.  Ribs have nice smoky aroma and the carmelized sauce give the juicy ribs a delicious sweet flavor.  I add some sauce which gives the ribs more sweetness and a bit of tang.

Trip tip was very tender and juicy with delicious smoky component.

Pulled pork was tender, juicy, and a mix of smoky, sweet, and tangy flavor.

Sausage had a delicious savory flavor.



While all the meats are tasty it’s the baby back ribs which keep bringing me back.  Corbin’s Q is a great spot to start the day.  🙂

    Great poem! Corbin is genuinely nice! Your pictures are wonderful.

  2. I love their set up at this market. And they are there so early! I haven’t tried their pulled pork so will have to return soon to do so. Then get a donut at Donut Bar 🙂

    1. Yes! Other bbq places make you wait till 11am. It’s very good pulled pork! Think of the awesome sandwiches you could make with it. 😉

  3. Nice!

    1. Thanks Christie! 🙂
