Some quick Googling brings up Smokeys N Uncle Grubes at 7300 Roosevelt Blvd.
(full disclosure for those who are interested in such things: this information came out of the Howard County health inspectors report, the only reference I could find to the place on the web).
Liam: do they smoke everything there? What kind of sauce to they have? Do they do ribs?
From a 2005 WaPo article on Howard County eats:
"Smokey's-N-Uncle Grube's (7300 Roosevelt Blvd., Elkridge, 410-796-0024) looks like my idealized version of a barbecue joint. It's in an old wooden building with a wooden screen door and picnic tables out front.
"The pork is slow-cooked in commercial ovens for several hours before being finished on a wood charcoal- and gas-fired pit. The minced pork sandwich has the consistency and sweet molasses taste you might associate with a sloppy Joe. But, oh, is it good. The ribs are meaty but a distant second to the minced pork."
. . .
I remember looking into it at the time that article came out and learning that they are only open for lunch and only weekdays, and since I'm never up that way during the day on weekdays, I hadn't really thought about it since.
