Does the smell of barbecue make you hungry? Between the tender meats, spicy rubs, and sweet sauces, it’s hard not to fall in love with this most quintessential of American dishes. If you’re a barbecue fan and a resident of Hancock Square at Arlington Station, you’ll want to check out Blackwood BBQ, a new restaurant in town.
The Blackwood BBQ Story
Blackwood BBQ is a restaurant with a mission. It donates a portion of its proceeds to under-privileged children in impoverished communities. Additionally, it also sources its ingredients from the most trusted of suppliers.
All of the meats you’ll savor at this restaurant contain no hormones and antibiotics. Best of all, the beef is 100% American and pasture-raised. You can taste the difference in the delicious flavors!
The pulled pork and brisket are really the stars of the show at Blackwood BBQ. The brisket is hand-trimmed, rubbed, and meticulously smoked for up to 15 hours over real wood. Meanwhile, the pulled pork is marinated in a mustard brine and smoked for 14 hours.
You can enjoy your meat entree on a sandwich, in a salad, or served with sides on a platter. Smother each delicious bite with the sauce of your choice. The Alabama-style sauce, which is a distinctive white color, is a tasty option for pulled chicken. If you’d like a sauce with a kick, try the Chicago style sauce or the mustard-based South Carolina sauce.
Regardless of what you order for your main course, you absolutely have to try the sides. Sharp white and yellow cheddar, as well as aged Gruyere, infuse the mac & cheese with unparalleled flavor. Meanwhile, the smokehouse beans, smoked with both brisket and pulled pork, are also exceptional.
