Chris Cunningham Posted May 11, 2009 Share Posted May 11, 2009 Most Every Sunday, I take the motorcycle and head out to Middleburg and beyond to enjoy the great country roads and scenery. Every Sunday, I also pass this small, family run BBQ stand in Aldie, Va, that is set up on the side of the road at the intersection of Route 15 and Route 50..also known as Gilberts Corner. There is also a vendor that sells popcorn, jellies, and kettle corn from Cactoctin Corn in Leesburg. There is also a guy selling Maine lobsters and seafood from a truck.Each time I ride out to the area is around 11 am and my buddies and I ride for most of the day and usually end up at the Red Horse Tavern for drinks and a bite after a day of riding, along with every other biker out there So Yesterday, we wrapped up a little early at around 4:30 and I decided to stop at the stand. I walked up to the tent and was very warmly greeted by every family member. I told them this was my first time and that I ride by every Sunday, but cant really carry much on my bike or that they are closed when I pass back by. As luck would have it, they were sold out of EVERYTHING except 1 rack of pork ribs that was just finishing up on the grill SOLD!!!!!As he was chopping and double wrapping my ribs for the ride home, another 3-5 people rode up and we basically out of luck. I thought about offering them to the highest bidder..but decided to keep them for my self.AM I GLAD I DID!!!!!!!!! Holy mother of BBQ...these ribs were simply AMAZING....cooked to perfection, spiced just right and a sauce that is to die for..also pretty darn spicy as well I paid $23 for the rack which was a good sized one as well. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!They also offer chicken, pulled pork BBQ sandwich, and 3 sides- cole slaw, baked beans and potato salad. None of which I got to try, but I will bet the farm that they are good. The chicken is $13. for a half, $6. for a pork sandwich, $23 for rack of ribs and $2.50 for each side. I'm sure they sell the sauce as well, becuase if they dont..I'm going to bottle it for them!!!!They are only open Fri, Sat and Sun usually from 11-dark..or until they run out of food. The husband(whose name escapes me) starts cooking at 7 am, so the ribs wont be ready until 11 or so. They will also allow you to call and place an order that they will hold for you. A husband and wife own the business and are always present with the family working there as well. I spoke with Glynis Thomas this morning, as I felt compelled to tell her how much I enjoyed the ribs and sauce.. I have rarely been moved enough to actually call or post about certian food items...but BBQ is a very HOT topic and these ribs my friends MOVED ME enough to write about them STOP eating the local crap around here that tries to pass for BBQ and drive your butts out to Aldie for some REAL BBQ.I am enclosing their contact info as well:The PIT STOPGlynis Thomas703-944-3611GLYNIS@NSTARLLC.comYou can call her for info and to pre orderI grew up in Middleburg and I wished I still lived there right now Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
