Here’s how to play:
1. Create a free Patch login if you don’t already have one.
2. Visit the pages in our Places directory. This week’s contestants are and . (Click on the links to get to the pages.)
3. Tell us in the comments on the directory pages which barbecue restaurant is your favorite and why.
4. The one with the most reviews by next Thursday, Sept. 8 will be declared the winner.
The Corner Stable, a longtime Hunt Valley staple, recently opened up a in Columbia. In our , Staci Wolfson described the restaurant’s ribs as perfectly cooked and said the meat was very tender. She was, however, disappointed that the sauce was watery and seemed to slide right off the meat.
Andy Nelson’s Barbeque is named after its owner, a former Baltimore Colts safety. Stephen Kahn raved about the restaurant’s pulled turkey “Q” sandwich’s rich heirloom tomato sauce but said the sandwich was a little soggy.
Now, Hunt Valley residents, choose your winner. Who has the best barbecue?
