We had pulled pork with potato buns, fried okra, greens with bacon, macaroni salad and grilled Italian sausage with peppers and onions. Traditional pulled pork and sauce made extra good on a potato bun. The Italian sausage was great. Absolutely worth a trip.

Description
We've been serving our wood-only barbeque to loyal DC-area fans since 1990. The story starts before that, though: John Snedden started barbequeing whole pigs when he was in college. (Aren't we all glad he changed his plans and did not become a doctor?)
