Glen Burnie MD - It is debated whether or not the method of slow cooking meat over indirect heat was invented by Americans, however, what is called "barbecue" around the world today is unquestionably an American original. Barbecue is a food that symbolizes both our ingenuity and our diversity with a style to match every region of our nation.
What better food, then, to use to symbolize American patriotism? Mission BBQ in Glen Burnie MD does just that. Two friends that are as passionate about their barbecue as they are their patriotism set out to launch a business with a purpose: to remind everyone every day that our heroes are what makes our country great. Glen Burnie MD residents gather to enjoy a meal and support a community business that targets giving back.
After traveling the country to sample barbecue from Texas, Kansas City, and everywhere else, Mission BBQ's founders learned everything they needed to know to make great barbecue and all of the fixings. But that was only the beginning of their journey. Rather than simply opening a restaurant, they wanted to run a business with meaning and purpose and so they dedicated their restaurant to soldiers at home and abroad, to the nation's firefighters and law enforcement officials, and to every hero that has served in the name of the United States of America.
They opened their doors on September 11, 2011, ten years after our world changed forever.
As part of their commitment to giving back, the founders of Mission BBQ in Glen Burnie MD support several national and local organizations that give to our troops and our heroes. Some of the organizations that they support include:
Any great barbecue house doesn't really need a menu, but there are some delicious items in addition to the Texas inspired brisket, pulled pork, Maryland baby back ribs and St. Louis style spare ribs. The half chicken or the Jalapeno & Cheese Sausage are two notable additions, as is the gluten-free menu. Enjoy dining with friends and family at the Glen Burnie restaurant or schedule a Pick Up Pack to take home serve at your parties and other special occasions.
