Awesome Photos of Panic in DC Caused by Upcoming Winter Storms!

I just returned from Target in Alexandria, Virginia to stock up for the big winter storms.  I wanted to share some early photos of the panic surrounding the DC Winter Blizzard of 2009 – maybe they’ll call it the DC THUNDER BLIZZARD OF 2009!  I thought it might be useful to have some good winter boots and went to the boot aisle at Target only to find:

No Boots for You!  Washington D.C. has run out of snow boots!

I guess its ok that I couldn’t find any boots, since they also didn’t have any carts!

I’m sure there will be much more fun to be had watching the Washington D.C. reaction to the storm – I’m just thankful that if the power goes out, I have 50 cases of BBQ sauce in the basement to keep my family fed!  Be careful out there!

Customer Testimonials – Thanks for All the Kind Words About Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce and Dry Rub!

Taste of Del Ray

The greatest honor for us is when our customers send us an email, or call to tell us that they like our Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce or Dry Rub.  It’s been a great year, and our bar b que sauce and dry rub has been used on countless pulled pork, bbq ribs, chicken and veggie recipes this summer.  We are so thankful for your support and wanted to share what some of our customers are saying:

“We happened to see your stint on Shark Tank – shortly after, our neighborhood store had your goods on display.  We tried it, and LOVED it!!  My husband is currently eating some sauce on his chicken and stated that it is his favorite sauce on the planet.” – email from Jill, Ft. Mill, South Carolina

“I spent my life trying to create the perfect gourmet bbq sauce, and was given a jar of your Pork Barrel BBQ sauce.  I used it on chicken and couldn’t believe that such an amazing taste could come from a bottle – I immediately went to my refrigerator and threw out all the BBQ sauce in it – yours will be the only BBQ sauce I ever use  – its the most amazing sauce I’ve ever tasted” phone call from University City, Missouri.

“Pork Barrel BBQ makes cooking a flavorful dinner on a time crunch easy. When I get home from work and want to throw dinner together I can take any piece of chicken, fish or beef, throw on some rub and cook it up. It is delicious, easy, and a staple in my cupboard.” – Krista, Washington, D.C.

“I used the All American Spice Rub to grill chicken for my teenage daughters – they said it was the best chicken I have ever made – I’m a customer for life!” – Jim, St. Louis, Missouri

“I was given a tin of the rub and have used it exclusively on salmon…….fabulous!!!!! I have yet to use it on anything else as I have run out and is time to reorder. You have a winner.” – Dian, St. Louis, Missouri

Not only does our All American Spice Rub taste great – but it is all natural and contains no preservatives and no MSG. The rub is manufactured locally in Virginia to reduce its carbon footprint. Now whats more bipartisan than that?
