Having been to at least half a dozen bbq joints over the past three months in places like NC, Oklahoma, Tennessee, New York and Florida...all with pedigrees beyond reproach...my lunch yesterday at Chubbies in Emmittsburg MD continues to be the benchmark of real BBQ.
getting a 1/2lb of pulled pork...(do people know the difference betrween pulled and shredded?)...covered with black smoky bark...a little melted fat, a couple of burt edges...and moist warm meat...man it was just wonderful. The bbq sauces...real bbq not flavored catsup (Ketchup)...the passion of Tom the BBQ king is clear and precise.
You won;t find any purple basil foam on a grilled hand harvested scallop with virgin roefish caviar and pickled truffle slices balanced on a petit silver spoon at this place.
Its about the food and eating and people
Worth the drive...and if people are visiting the historic sites...it is perfectly placed between DC and Gettysburg...
A jewel in the hills of Maryland...
