Just around the corner [from Three Pigs Barbecue] in McLean is Boss Hog's. The pork ($11.95 a pound) is chopped fine and includes nice brown bits, but the texture is dry and the taste bland. The tomato-based sauce is bright and savory. The ribs, with a deep pink interior, have a great smoky taste. But the texture is dry, stringy and mushy.
The coleslaw could use more vinegar, but the large shreds of cabbage and carrot, accented with pickle, are tasty. And the potato salad is even better: big chunks of well-cooked potato, egg, pickle and lots of mayonnaise, with the right amount of vinegar. The stuffed eggs are outstanding, too.
