Kloby's sells delicious pulled pork -- a meaty, smokey flavor with the texture of shredded meat. It beats down the overly-sweet, overly-pureed barbecue that most places offer. I have loved the Kloby's pork since it opened on Johns Hopkins Road just west of Rte 29.
Then, I strayed. Last time, I ordered white meat chicken and a Cuban sandwich because Mrs. HowChow likes both of them. At the last minute, I ordered a pound of pork for later in the week. The chicken was . . . chicken. The Cuban sandwich was fine, but not in the league with Cuba de Ayer in Burtonsville. (It's a pickle panini, said Mrs. HowChow.) We were a little disappointed until we unwrapped the lunch that I had packed the next morning.
"Now that's barbecue," Mrs. HowChow emailed to me. And a pound makes four, maybe five sandwiches. Buy some supermarket rolls and make yourself some oven fries. With good salt, my oven fries were better than the ones that I had carried home from Kloby's. But nothing beats that pulled pork. That's great cooking.
