Official Review For Chubby's BBQ!!!

Classic BBQ Joint Just below The Mason-Dixon in Maryland.

 
OK, Here it is, the review everybody has been waiting for.....best BBQ in the East....Chubby's in Emmitsburg, MD.  I travel Route 15 in Maryland when I visit my daughter in Virginia.  No trip is complete without a stop at Chubby's.
I recently visited with my wife, business partner and his wife.  It was my Partners first time there, to say the least, he was stunned at how fantastic the food was. He's a Huge BBQ fan, said it was by far the best Q he's ever had. I agree, my Ribs were huge, smokey and moist and my wife is in love with the incredibly moist, pulled pork.  The sides are all fantastic, especially the beans and greens...huge portions. I've been to many BBQ joints in the East, none comes close to Chubby's.
Service is quick and friendly, the prices very reasonably, and like I said, HUGE portions!  The owner, Tom Caulfield is always on site meeting and greeting the customers.
 
Slow Smoked baked Beans.

Best Beans Anywhere.  Chubby's Beans Are Fantastic.  Sometimes There is More Pork Than Beans.
 
The Old Pork Puller Himself.

French Fries With Fresh Garlic.

You Will Repel Vampires in a 100 Mile Radius.
 
Onion Rings With fresh Garlic.

If You Love garlic, Do Not Miss This Item.
 
Baby Back Ribs - 1/2 Rack.

5-Star Ribs!  Huge, Moist and Smokey!

    Are you sure that's not a  very elderly Holden Caulfield?
     
    I have to get there. When even Joe Rogo says something's good, well, maybe it is.
     
    Wait. Where's the bacon?

    Wait Wait!!!..There's so much More! You get Tom's rapier wit....and a menu that Joerogo has only just touched on  Not to mention some wonderful scenery on the way and Gettysburg within  a (hefty) spitting distance.
     
    Rumor has it  the NSA monitors Chubby's phone calls to find out what Q is being ordered the most, and then sends a special truck up for it's weekly in-house bash!

    I figured out why it took it so long to get this review on line, it was the words " OLD PORK PULLER"
     
    I am pleased that the squeeky wheel, finaaly got the "grease". Nice review, I hope ther is more to it, and more pictures. The food looks great.

    Bloody good show joerogo.  
     
    It's been too long since I've been to Chubby's.   A plus for residents of the People's Republic of Maryland is that Keystone Fireworks is just over the PA. line in Gettysburg, so I'll have to schedule a trip before July 4th for the always excellent food at Chubby's and the 'good stuff' fireworks at Keystone.

    Mrs. Metro and I are thinking of moving "back East".  If we do, Chubby's will be right there with crabcakes at G & M on our weekend ventures list.
     
    Those baked beans look beyond wonderful!

    That food looks absolutely divine!  I'm going to have to force MH to take me to Chubby's even if I have to drag him kicking and screaming!!

    Are the fries and rings crisp?  The pictures make them look kind of limp/soggy.  Not a single plastic utensil in sight! 
     
    Oops.  Just noticed Joe won't be able to answer that question anytime soon.  My bad.

    Janet and I went to Chubby's about a year ago, and did not know it was associated with you.  We had a wonderful meal!  Keep up the good work!   Chubby's is less than 2 hours from where we live, so we'll be sure to make another visit soon.

    Step 3. Before finishing your meal say you didn't like it and refuse to pay. And don't forget to complain about the drink not being cold.

    You and MH going to visit Gettysburg BEFORE the mass of humanity gets there for the 150th Anniversary.  You might get stuck in the kitchen if chewy needs some hep for the masses.

    Please keep comments in this thread about the restaurant that was reviewed. It would not be fair to restaurant owner to keep veering off topic here. Thanks!

    Chubby's is on my Bucket list ! Among other reasons, I want to check out the decorations in his award-winning restrooms !!
    We haven't revisited the Gettysburg area since they removed the "Electric Map" of the Battlefield Events. Perhaps it is time to head East again for some Que and Amish stuff.

    If Chubby's wasn't 494 miles from Knoxville, TN, Roz and I would go this weekend.  A major component of Roz's dissertation on behavioral health is Obamacare.  Roz needs to schedule a trip for her research to DC.  Perhaps we could tie that in with a visit to Chubby's.
     
    Al and I drove 350 miles for BBQ in TN so I guess 494 is not out of the question.  Perhaps at that time we could have a major roadfood meeting at Chubby's?

    Perhaps Joe would consider hosting a Meet and Eat -- Incognito, of course, due to his current status as Persona non Grata in certain social circles.
     
    It would make a great "Sidebar" video for the next BBQ PITMASTERS reality episode.
