Salt and Pepper ... Always Tastes Better!


So how about some good news? Two longtime Broadneck residents have combined their passion for cooking and food to create the latest taste sensation on the Peninsula. Word is spreading by mouth and through Social Media. Salt and Pepper BBQ has everyone talking, and lots of folks enjoying their mouth-watering food.


Earl Downs and Billy Grimes have known each other a long time; but they became good friends through their involvement with the Broadneck Elks Lodge 2608 in Arnold, where both are officers. They have been committed to the Elks' mission of helping others in the community and are very active in the Lodge's charitable efforts.


Earl being honored as an Elk of the Year..."Earl is dedicated and passionate about keeping our lodge financially solvent, increasing our membership, and serving our community. He's always there to lend a hand to assist a member, complete a project or prepare and serve a meal. We're very fortunate to have him as a member of our lodge."

Ok, so great guys, local business, and guess what? THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS! As of now, they are serving at the Elk's almost every weekend. Their menu is posted weekly on their Facebook page. They offer different items every week such as pit beef, ham, and turkey, pulled pork, barbequed ribs, and chicken. Different sides are also offered on a rotating basis, and I highly recommend the potato salad! This Saturday, July 4th, they will be offering a pit turkey sandwich served with their signature white sauce for $7; a sandwich or a smoked pork chop with two sides (baked beans, green beans or mac n' cheese) for $12.00. The Elks has an outside pavilion and serves drinks, and of course, carry out is available. Preorder is highly suggested, call 410-541-6046 or

So what is next? According to the guys, "This is a young company on the move!" They are currently working on a more formalized calendar, and on catering menus. If you are looking for catering for a private event, feel free to contact them. They are also looking to expand their menu to include taste sensations such as barbequed pizza, and other things that "haven't been done." If you have a taste for barbeque or pit-style meats (the pit beef is the best I have had in a long time!!!); or are tired or cooking (and who isn't these days?) give these guys a shout. What is better than supporting a local business run by two great people, who "love food, love cooking ....it's all about the heart."
