San Dieguito Heritage Museum hosts ‘Deep Pit BBQ’


The San Dieguito Heritage Museum celebrated local heritage by hosting its 27th annual Deep Pit BBQ at the museum site on May 23.

The museum grounds, at 450 Quail Gardens Drive in Encinitas, were alive with families — old-timers chatting with newcomers, visitors touring the museum and discovering a history they never knew — all enjoying plates of steaming hot Deep Pit BBQ Beef with cole slaw and beans, and sweet treats from the Bake Sale Table. Beans and coleslaw were provided by Cap’n Kenos, macaroni and cheese came from Brett’s BBQ.

The event also included a petting zoo for kids, a silent auction, the soft classic rock band “Two of Us Plus One,” and tours of the museum and the old Del Mar fire engine.
