Two Ks in BBQ

Yesterday was a rainy day,though warm for December (coulda been snow). I had some mostly inside work but really had a hankerin' for some BBQ for lunch. I hadn't talked to fellow member Olblue60 for a while and gave him a call. Where I'm working is down closer to him and even nearer to a place called Urban BBQ where his friend manages & tends bar. I got a hold of Olblue and he was actually just coming back from up my way,and we decided to meet up. I was in my '72 K2500 and he was in his '68 K/20,so I thought I took the opportunity for a photo shoot. Just two good ole 3/4t 4wd daily drivers sittin' outside a BBQ joint on a dreery December day. I guess you could say it was a mini board meet,right?

Re: Two Ks in BBQ

Nothing like getting BBQ with a buddy. Did he trade front clips on that truck or put the '69-'72 trim on his pickup?

This "joint" is in Sandy Spring,MD,not real close to Annapolis. The only place I know to suggest down there is Red,Hot,and Blue. They have great BBQ and have blues playing constantly. This place is a sight. Whatever directions you get,go past it on US50 (going East) and come back to it,so you get a good look at it on the right. This location used to be a pancake restaurant and looks like a windmill. Now there are pigs on it! Google it for directions and enjoy

Dan works Mon-Fri till 5. Just make sure you're with Olblue60. Those two have known each other since they were 4,so he'll make it worth the trip!

He bought that truck out of Western Kansas as you see it...and tweaked and tweaked and now it's right. It's a '68 body on a post-72 4wd frame. It's original paint,so it never had trim till Mr. PO put that 69-72 on. Olblue60 has it how he wants it now and rollin' with it.

I thought that was neat,too. It's like the Hot Dogs,Apple Pie,and Chevrolet thing (or was it Baseball in there somewhere?...McDonalds?),only BBQ,Beer,and Chevrolet (I mean GMC ). I like the Ford Explorer hood (early '70s truck) hanging on the wall,too. No comment

Re: Two Ks in BBQ

Driven and worked. He had just hauled some body parts for his Panel up to the body shop and I had just unloaded 16' 2x2s off the rack at my job. I have been restoring,customizing,modifying,and/or just fixing up these trucks real pretty for a long time. But,now that about all you see are garage queens I'm kinda going the other way. Something about just a good old truck to drive around is a great feeling. I hope to make this one nice,of course,one day. In the mean time I just use it,which I'll still do once that happens. I've always treated my trucks with care no matter the age or condition.

Yeah Bill,that's just what you need. One just like that.

Man,I'm gettin' a hankerin' for more BBQ
