Best Barbecue this side of Kansas City

I am very fussy about BBQ...let's say extreme and I do know what I'm talking about having lived in places with the best in this country starting with Texas, later North Carolina and having traveled to Kansas City and West Memphis Arkansas. Usually a BBQ place only does one style. These guys do it... read more

This is the BBQ place in Frederick, MD. Every time I go to a class/conference at the Acquisition School for the VA I go there at least 2 times and I always drag new people with me. The Ribs are my Favorite paired with one of the Local Flying Dog Beers...Excellent. Everyone is friendly...Hog Heaven...

We've been here twice with our 2 young kids, the food is awesome and the service is fast. They've got 4 sauces to choose from, chicken, pork, beef, Mac n cheese - we all love it here! Lots of parking too.

We had the beef briskets and half slab ribs (wet & dry). Enjoyed it and would definitely go back for more! This place beats "Famous Dave's".....Very Good Authentic BBQ!! The place can have a wait time of 30 - 45mns during the summer season.

Sampled chicken, brisket & ribs. The chicken and brisket were tender, juicy, and favorful, with nice smoked flavor and a slightly sweet sauce. Cole slaw was finely chopped and fresh-tasting. Fries looked fresh-cut, but mine tasted to me like the oil needed changing. Cornbread is more sweet & cakey than southerners will like, and it doesn't have a crunchy crust... More

I can't name one bad or negative about this place. Tiffany, our server, TOP notch. Our party had a bit of everything, the ribs, brisket, chicken, pork and various sides. Dry rub, wet sauces, no matter what, all perfect. I've had a lot of BBQ in a variety of places throughout the states and this one is clearly at the... More

So, I figured that a BBQ joint with a name like Black Hog BBQ has to be good, right? Well it is! Our party of 5 ordered 5 different meats and all were happy with their selections. BBQ Pork (sliced and chopped) beef brisket, chicken and ham. They have selections from all the country's BBQ regions: Kansas City, Carolina, St.... More

Love their brisket and their ribs. However I don't understand the whole dry rub thing they do. Especially the newer location next to Wegmans. They ask if I want dry or wet ribs. I say dry (because it's the sign of a true rib) and all they do is sprinkle some dry seasoning over it which isn't enough. The dry... More
