Maryland Independent - - Business -

Lefty’s Bar­be­cue of Wal­dorf took first place for Best Pork BBQ and sec­ond place for judges’ choice Over­all Best BBQ at Metro Cook­ing DC, an expo at the Wal­ter E. Wash­ing­ton Con­ven­tion Cen­ter. The expo was Satur­day, Dec. 3.

With more than 15 bar­be­cue restau­rants in the Wash­ing­ton, D.C., met­ro­pol­i­tan area at the expo, show go­ers had the op­por­tu­nity to walk around each booth and sam­ple each restau­rant’s fea­tured item. Af­ter­wards, they filled out a bal­lot to vote in four cat­e­gories: pork, beef brisket, chicken and bar­be­cue sauce, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

The for­mal award judges in­cluded David Guas, fea­tured grill ex­pert, TV host and owner of the dis­trict’s Bayou Bak­ery, and Danielle Ben­nett, bet­ter known to the bar­be­cue com­mu­nity as Diva Q, who is one of the most in­flu­en­tial women in the bar­be­cue and grilling in­dus­try, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.

Lefty’s Bar­be­cue Un­lim­ited is a fam­ily- and mi­nor­ity-owned busi­ness that was started in 1989.
