Double D's Bar-B-Q Truck - Stittsville, ON

1016 Carp Road, Stittsville, ON

I answered the call of the smoke which lured me.  While driving through Stittsville on our way to our favourite Italian for lunch, wafts of hickory smoke caught my attention.  I glanced out the window and saw the 'Open' sign.  Yes.  Time for hubby to try the Double D's truck.  We found an ATM, turned around and parked.  The smell of the smoking meat was intoxicating (I really need to get back to Memphis sometime).

We placed our orders and patiently waited for the goodness to appear in the window.  We enjoyed a nice chat with Dean (owner) while we waited.  I ordered the brisket, pit beans and s'mac and cheese and Dale ordered the pulled pork sandwich and beans (in hindsight I should have had him order some s'mac and cheese which I could scarf down eat later.)  We drove to a nearby parking lot and let the feasting begin.  We were not disappointed.  The brisket was meltingly tender and delicious.  Perfect blend of seasonings, not drowned in sauce - just the good stuff.  Nice bark on the outside, smoke ring of truth and flavour, flavour, flavour.  (My mouth is watering as I type this actually).  The s'mac and cheese was also quite delectable (how can four different kinds of cheese be wrong?).  The beans were also just divine.  Good texture, nice addition of the pulled pork and other aromatics.  I love beans and these did not disappoint.

This truck has been open since last September and my friend LB and I stopped by there soon after they opened (a few weeks after that she brought me some beans and mac as a hostess gift - awesome!).  I had not been back since and now wonder why I waited so long?  Summer is coming (finally!) and Ottawa can shed it's heavy coat and start enjoying some good, authentic, Southern-style BBQ.

You can find Double D's menu on Facebook  and follow them on Twitter for updates on when they are open.  Thanks for keeping it real guys!

  1. On your about page you mention curry rice. Do you have a good recipe you are willing to post?

    And this truck food sounds interesting.....I'll have to check it out if I am ever in the area.

  2. Hi Matt;

    You should try it out when you get a chance. For a good curry rice, I will refer you to the first curry rice I made years ago. Not my recipe, but from a show called 'Cuisine Rapide'
    Curry Rice

    1/2 c onion, finely chopped
    1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
    1 tb curry powder
    1 tb vegetable oil
    1 c parboiled white rice
    1 tsp table salt
    2 c water

    In a medium pot, heat the vegetable oil (until it shimmers) over med-hi heat, add the onion and sauté until translucent. Next, add the garlic and the rice. Sauté until the rice is translucent (but the garlic is not burnt). Once the rice is translucent, add the curry powder and stir to coat. Sauté for 1 minute then add the water and the salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cook for about 22 minutes. At this time, check to see if the water is all evaporated. If it is almost all evaporated, continue cooking another 3 minutes and check again. Once the water is evaporated, remove the pot from the heat and let the rice rest for about 10 minutes then enjoy. Let me know how it turns out!

  3. Thanks just back from holiday and seeing this now. Will try this out for sure! Many thanks.

  4. I love, love, love this truck! Of all of the new food trucks in Ottawa, this is the one I frequent the most. The food is hands down fantastic! On top of the delicious food, the owner, Dean, is super friendly and talkative, and I find that adds to the positive experience. You can tell how passionate he is about the food he serves.
