New Pinky's Menu

Pinky’s Kitchen, Wallingford purveyor of killer barbecue, is upping its game by adding a hefty new smoker. The addition means a bigger and more badass menu—notably the addition of baby back ribs.

Co-owner Andrew Bray says other expanded offerings include meats by the pounds, plus the option to call in orders for a whole chicken, perhaps, or reserve a Thanksgiving turkey. Catering, too. "Before we didn’t have the capacity to do anything too big."

Bray expects the Ole Hickory Pit will be in place by the end of next week. So look for those ribs in early June, and maybe breakfast sandwiches further down the line. The neighborhood is curiously in need of some, so Bray has been experimenting with bacon and hams to fill the void. Pinky’s does late night anyway, why not make it a round-the-clock operation?
