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!
