New barbecue restaurant opening

A new barbecue restaurant in King George County will hold its ribbon-cutting at 1 p.m. Jan. 10.

Smokin Ron’s BBQ, located at 15411 Dahlgren Road, will offer samples of its pulled pork, pulled brisket and pulled chicken as part of the ceremony.

Owners Ron and Stephanie Haynes and their staff use a combination of wood and charcoal to smoke their chicken, ribs, briskets and pork butts after they’ve been rubbed with Ron Haynes’ savory seasonings and dry brined for 24 hours, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page.

The Hayneses and their staff recently celebrated Christmas by offering a free traditional dinner for all active military who couldn’t get home for the holidays, and all the uniformed police, fire and rescue personnel who had to work that day.

      In King George all those places don’t exist. In Fredericksburg, yes.

    I went the day they opened and it was wonderful. I don’t usually like barbecue but this was awesome. Delicious sauces. I liked the mild best as it had subtle spicy hotness, the other was more in your face hot. The meat was perfect. We had the appetizer sampler followed by ribs and pulled pork sandwich. Better than Allman’s or Famous Dave’s which are the only two other barbecue places I’ve been in the area. King George has needed some more variety in the restaurant choices beyond all the fast food places. It’s fantastic we have Smokin’ Ron’s, Bollywood Masala, Five Guys and Steamers to round out all the Italian and country cooking places.
