Rocklands Barbeque & Grilling Company



ROCKLANDS Barbeque and Grilling Company has been serving wood-only barbeque to loyal DC-area fans since 1990. Where are the four ROCKLANDS locations? Follow the aroma to Glover Park, Arlington, Alexandria and Rockville - and if you need catering they do that too, delivery or full service. John Snedden, who founded ROCKLANDS 25 years ago this year, started off barbequing whole pigs for college parties. While those slow-smoked whole pigs are still a foundation of ROCKLANDS' catering, the company also caters office lunches to fancy weddings (38 of 'em in 2014). Last year's largest event? A party for 3,900. John says the DC market has changed: "There are a lot more barbeque fans now. It amazes me how many new faces we see in our shops each week. And they're all coming for the same thing: A true, wood-only barbeque experience." Chopped pork sandwiches, barbequed brisket and grilled salmon are customer favorites. ROCKLANDS' food trucks can be seen out and about at events in DC, Maryland and Virginia, and are available for private events as well. The company has received positive reviews in everything from Gourmet to Newsweek, and its fans have consistently voted ROCKLANDS "best barbeque" in annual City Paper and Washingtonian competitions.
