I finally had the opportunity to meet up with Timothy Marcus the owner and operator of Divine Swine BBQ. We had been messaging back and forth for about a year. He just happened to be in my neighborhood last week at Pen Druid Brewing and we got to catch up.
Tim brought out his smoker for a small event happening that day. He had brisket, pulled pork, baked beans and collard greens.
I will have to say that it was some of the most flavorful BBQ I have had in a long time. The brisket was nice and tender, the pulled pork had a wonderful "BBQ" taste. It's hard to explain. The baked beans had a flavor that I've never had before, curry powder. I now do this with my baked beans. The collards had a nice spiciness to them, but definitely not over powering.
Tim also informed me of some great news. He is setting up a brick and mortar shop in downtown Warrenton on Culpeper Street. It will be called Divine Swine BBQ Deli & Kitchen.
The restaurant will be open at the end of July. If you want to check him out though he will be at The Bonafide event on the Fourth of July behind The BlackBear Bistro in Warrenton.
Divine Swine is definitely a place that I will be visiting time and time again. I can't wait for the location to open in Warrenton.
Be sure to check out on Facebook for all his events and updates on the new location: Facebook.com/divineswine
I will be creating a new page on the website called VA BBQ that will be where I will be putting most of the BBQ information. I will post a link when I have it ready to go. I will be updating as I visit different places. Until then Drink Up and Eat Well.
