For those on the wrong side of the city from Big Bad Wolf or Andy Nelson's, there is a new place (Butler's, I think it's called) on Annapolis Road (AKA Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd, AKA 648), on the west side of the street a block south of Patapsco Blvd.
Smoker outside in actual use? Check!
Smoke ring visible on the rib meat? Check!
Decent selection of sides? Check!
Nice sauce? Check! (I had the "hot" version, dunno about the "mild")
Selection of other forms of 'Q, and "lake trout" too? Check!
My first try was a rack of ribs and a side of collards, with a nice piece of corn bread (the sweet kind, bordering on corn "cake"). I definitely put this one in the "worth going back and checking out more things on the menu" column.
Are they gonna knock Andy's off the top of my list? For ribs, no, (we'll see how they do on other items) but they may end up getting some repeat business from me due to their having a good product, and a location that's about 40 minutes closer to my humble hovel than dear old Andy Nelson's.
Check it out, B'more 'Q-hounds! Post your verdict, and let's see if you think we can add another worthy establishment to our all-too-short list of decent BBQ places in the area.
