The trailer on Route 3 is open for business with a menu featuring ribs, brisket, pork sandwiches and other favorites.
As promised, I stopped by Rusty's Ribs 'n BBQ on Wednesday for some lunch. Owner Russell Clark has officially set up shop just south of McKnew Road in the middle of the north and southbound lanes of Maryland Route 3, and is cranking out pounds of barbecue pork, chicken, brisket and sides. He and his son are doing all the work inside the red trailer, which is equipped with heavy cooking equipment and hauled in by pickup truck each morning.

After learning of a new barbecue trailer in Gambrills, we ask readers about their preferences.
We learned Monday about the arrival of the new Rusty's Ribs 'N BBQ trailer on Maryland Route 3.

Area residents will have a new option for barbecue when a Gambrills man opens his new food trailer alongside Maryland Route 3. Russell “Rusty” Clark quietly started serving ribs, brisket, chicken and other barbecue options last weekend and will be open Wednesday for customers. He'll be open sporadically over the next week and hopes to have a grand opening and ribbon cutting on June 2. Clark, 55, said he decided to open Rusty’s Ribs 'n BBQ after holding countless successful cookouts with friends and family. “Everyone said ‘you should go into business,’” he said. “I’d been doing it for 17 years but never considered it.
