Pork Barrel BBQ in Cowboys & Indians Magazine

04-14 - Cowboys & Indians - 1

We are very excited to announce that there is a great article on Pork Barrel BBQ sauces in the April 2014 issue of Cowboys & Indians Magazine.

04-14 - Cowboys & Indians - 2

Cowboys & Indians had this to say, “We suggest the original rub and barbecue sauce for starters, but don’t overlook Pork Barrel’s equally delicious variations, either. Try the sweet sauce with chicken, the mustard on pretzels, and use the vinegar blend for a classic South Carolina pulled pork sandwich.”

Insane BBQer/Tailgater Challenge – Win Free Pork Barrel BBQ Products If You’re The Most Hardcore, Extreme & Insane BBQer/Tailgater in America

cold-thermometer

How hardcore of a BBQer/Tailgater are you? If you’re out manning the grill or smoker over the next few days in many parts of the country you will certainly enter the ranks of the hardcore and possibly insane. According to weather experts it has been decades since many parts of the country have experienced a deep freeze like the one expected to hit the Midwest and East Coast beginning on Sunday into early next week.  Temperature predictions include -31 in International Falls, MN, -15 in Indianapolis, -10 in St. Louis and -25 in Fargo, ND with wind chills reaching as low as 70 below zero in parts of the country.

Sunday’s Green Bay Packers game against the San Francisco 49ers has a chance to eclipse the Ice Bowl as the coldest NFL game ever played with temperatures expected to fall somewhere between -4 and -15 with wind chills near -30. There is no question you’re a hardcore fan and tailgater if you’re planning to tailgate before this game. You’re probably a little bit insane too! 

This weather pattern is apparently a once a decade or every couple decades event so be safe if you plan to get out and BBQ in it. If you’re insane enough to get outside and fire up the grill or smoker in temps as low as -25 we want to reward you with some free Pork Barrel BBQ Products.

Here’s how it works:

1. Contest runs Saturday, January 4, 2014 through Wednesday, January 8, 2014. 

2. Take a photo of yourself BBQing with a thermometer showing how cold it is where you’re BBQing (extra hardcore points for photos of you tailgating at the Packers/49ers game with a thermometer in hand). Post your photo to our Twitter page (@PorkBarrelBBQ) between January 4 and January 8 and use the hashtag #InsaneColdBBQer and tell us how cold it is where you are BBQing. 

3. Prizes will be awarded to the three photos showing the coldest temperature on the thermometer. The coldest temperature will win a free Pork Barrel BBQ Party Pack, the second coldest temperature will win a Pork Barrel BBQ Picnic Pack and the third coldest temperature will win a 19oz Jar of Pork Barrel BBQ All-American Spice Rub.

Be safe and stay warm if you can. You can get frostbite on exposed skin in just minutes in temperatures this low. Get inside and warm up if you start asking yourself why am I putting my body through this?

Now let’s find out who is the most hardcore, extreme and insane BBQer/Tailgater in America!
