Well the second stop for some excellent Q while traveling in and around Virginia and Pennsylvania was a great. We stopped in at Pork Barrel BBQ and it was a treat. I tried a little of each type of Q they had. The brisket was very tender and flavorful although a little dry. The chicken and ribs were excellent, pulled pork was good and the sausage had to much sage for my taste. The table had three different sauces their regular, mustard and a sweet, I tried and I enjoyed all of them. For the sides we tried the Texas Caviar which is a black eyed peas with peppers and onions, we also tried their mac and cheese, baked beans and potato salad. The mac was to die for, being seasoned with jalapeño and chipotle peppers it made me feel at home. After the meal I could see why they have trophy’s on display that they have won BBQing. If you find yourself around DC take the short trip to Alexandria and give the Pork Barrel a try.
I will try to get some pictures up when possible.
