I hesitate posting this since I know it will result in long lines but I went twice over the weekend to a BBQ truck in Olney across from Daves on 108 at Muncaster Road. It is called Pig and Poke. The owner's name is Scott. The food is very good. 3 unbrella/picnic stables so you can eat there. Menu includes pit beef/ham/turkey, pulled pork.beef/chicken bbq, smoked corn on the cob, smoked sausage, good homemade baked beans, potatoe salad, cole slaw and sweet tea. Food is great and reasonably priced. There is a fruit/veggie stand attached. Excellent addition to the Olney food scene. Soon to add soft freeze ice cream

    Hey, doc, thanks for posting about Pig and Poke. I went with a friend today around 3pm and thoroughly enjoyed our pulled pork. Homemade coleslaw was fresh! The owner is nice and friendly. Didn't see smoked corn on the cob on the menu; maybe next time.

      My wife and I stopped by there today. The slaw, beans and potato salad are good, but I found the pulled pork to be mushy. Her beef was the same. Too sweet for my taste. I think I'll stick to Urban BBQ for my pulled pork.

      Stopped by Saturday at around 1:30 pm and had a pit beef sandwich platter (sandwich and two small sides of my choice) for $10.00. The pit ham and turkey were equally tempting. I thought the fountain soda at $2.00 was a bit steep.

      I asked for the beef sandwich medium rare and it was very good - moist and flavorful. I might suggest a sturdier bun for the sandwiches because the cheap hamburger bun sort of disintegrated while I was eating it. The onion topping for the beef was crisp and the available horseradish condiment was sinus clearing good. The sides are homemade - the beans were really nice, but the slaw while very fresh, was rather bland.

      The flow of customers was constant, always three or four people in line and his three picnic tables were full.

      I know that at some point I'll definitely be back again to try other menu items. A worthy addition to the area.

        I went back also over the weekend and shared the bbq pork and bbq beef with my oldest son. I agree with the roll coment but otherwise thought everything was great again for the 3rd time in a week. I will let the owner know about the rolls. Also think he should add slice beefsteak tomatoes and slices of watermellon to his menu since he sells both at his fruit stand.

        Is this is the trailer in front of Gray Goose Farms?

            Tuesday through Sunday, 11-7 (11-6 on Sunday.)

            This is a one man shop, so not all items available at all times. Yesterday, he was out of beef and chicken bbq at 3 pm. Food is good, although it takes some time to fill orders (he does not slice the beef until you order. )
