Pork Barrel BBQ All-American Spice Rub Now Available At Sam’s Club

Sam's Club

Over the past three years we’ve slept in Sam’s Club parking lots from New Jersey to Arkansas competing in the Sam’s Club National BBQ Tour. Hours of our conversation during those nights consisted of dreaming about having our products on the shelves at Sam’s Club and figuring out a strategy to make those dreams a reality. We’re very excited to announce that our hard work over the past three years has paid off and you can now purchase our Pork Barrel BBQ-All American Spice Rub in a 19oz chef jar at ALL Sam’s Clubs in the United States!

Our All-American Spice Rub is a versatile all-purpose rub that is great on pork, beef, poultry, seafood and vegetables. Its combination of 14 herbs and spices includes Ancho Chile, Chipotle Chile, Smoked Paprika, Cilantro, Garlic and Cumin which gives the All-American Spice Rub a smoky and savory flavor with slight notes of spice and herbs.

The All-American Spice Rub is great on traditional BBQ dishes like ribs and chicken, but is equally good as a seasoning for pot roast and fried chicken. It’s even great on popcorn! Let your imagination run wild, we haven’t found much it isn’t great on!

We don’t always have our favorite cast iron skillet with us or the time to fry up a slab of Bacon so we started thinking how can we turn one of our favorite foods into a convenient snack item that can be taken anywhere and carried in a pocket, a small bag or purse or a glove box and it hit us – BACON JERKY. Besides, who doesn’t love Bacon? We do and we think you are going to love our line of Pork Barrel BBQ Bacon Jerky!!!

Risks and challenges

Distribution:

We have first hand experience, gained through the development of a distribution chain for our national award-winning line or Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Spice Rubs, dealing with the challenges associated with gaining distribution for a new food product. These challenges include gaining shelf space, paying slotting fees, providing retailers free product, conducting numerous food demos and sampling events, and advertising. Overcoming these challenges requires significant capital, a hardworking sales force, and a great product.

Scalability:

It’s fun to create a new product in your kitchen at home and hand out samples to friends and family, but to make it a truly viable business that can meet consumer demand and insure on time delivery you must either invest in a commercial production facility or partner with an outstanding manufacture.

Production:

The USDA requires jerky to be made in an approved facility under the supervision of a USDA inspector. After more than a year of research we have partnered with a production facility that has years of experience manufacturing some of the best jerky available for consumer purchase.

Thank you for your support – Pork Barrel BBQ Bacon Jerky Kickstarter Campaign

Here’s what Cook’s Illustrated had to say about our Original BBQ Sauce:

“…Pork Barrel BBQ Original BBQ Sauce, delivered. With generous additions of vinegar, salt, and chili paste along with liquid smoke, it was tart, spicy, and more savory than sweet. It also had enough body to cling to the chicken.”

BBQ Voters to Pick the President with Straw Poll

Key Remaining Undecided Group Will Decide the Outcome of the 2012 Presidential Election at www.PorkBarrelBBQ.com/PickThePrez

Pick The Prez - Homepage Ad

Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 27, 2012 – Washington, D.C.’s Pork Barrel BBQ today announced America’s first of its kind, and indisputably accurate, straw poll that experts believe will predict the outcome of the 2012 Presidential Election. As the campaign’s battle over the remaining undecided voters, political pundits have given a new name to this critical remaining swing voter – The BBQ Voter.

“The BBQ Voter is the key remaining undecided vote in critical swing states like Virginia, Ohio, Florida and North Carolina, and the candidates would be wise to target the BBQ Voter in the remaining days of the election,” said Heath Hall, President of Pork Barrel BBQ, a bipartisan BBQ company.

BBQ’ers across America are encouraged to participate in what could be 2012’s most definitive Presidential Straw Poll that is sure to have both candidates hoping the results show them smoking their competition. Voters will cast their votes through the purchase of BBQ’ers for Obama and BBQ’ers for Romney t-shirts and bumper stickers being sold online at www.PorkBarrelBBQ.com/PickThePrez. Each t-shirt or bumper sticker purchase equals one vote for the candidate. Votes cast in Pork Barrel BBQ’s official BBQ’ers Presidential Straw Poll will be calculated weekly and posted at here.

Political pundits, pollsters and BBQ lovers agree that the 2012 Presidential Election and battle for the Oval Office will be determined by the slimmest of margins. Both President Obama and Governor Romney are either painfully aware that this year’s election is likely to be decided by the undecided American BBQ voter or their numerous stops at barbecue joints across America is just an admission that they love barbecue more than any other American cuisine.

The candidates are encouraged to publically release their favorite barbecue recipes to the voters and eat more barbecue over the final weeks of the Presidential campaign in an attempt to sway the remaining BBQ Voters.

Barbecue has been a common unifier between the American people and politicians since the founding of America. Our first president, George Washington, once noted in his diary that he “went up to Alexandria to a barbecue”. One can only wonder if he was the first person in line for the nation’s first Pork Barrel BBQ Restaurant that opened near his homestead in Alexandria in 2011. President Andrew Jackson was known to smoke meats behind his Hermitage in Nashville, Tennessee and President Lyndon Johnson served barbecue at his first formal State Dinner and continued to practice “barbecue diplomacy’ throughout his political career.

BBQ’ers who wish to show support for President Obama or Governor Romney are encouraged to purchase BBQ’ers for Obama and BBQ’ers for Romney t-shirts and bumper stickers at www.porkbarrelbbq.com/PickThePrez.

About Pork Barrel BBQ

Pork Barrel BBQ was founded in December 2008 during the peak of the economic crisis to prove that a company not owned or operated by the federal government could succeed, and that if you had a good idea, it was still possible to grab a piece of the American Dream. Pork Barrel BBQ founders, Heath Hall and Brett Thompson, ran the company out of the basement of their houses, selling their award winning BBQ products one bottle at a time. In less than one year, their Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Spice Rub were carried in over 1,000 stores in 40 states. Throughout their journey, they have stayed true to their mission – to unite the nation through the great tradition of BBQ, and bring bipartisan flavor to your next meal. The Pork Barrel BBQ Competition BBQ Team entered its first contest, The Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle, in June 2009, and walked away with two trophies – Second Place in the “Nations Best BBQ Sauce Contest” and Fourth Place for their pulled pork in the Memphis In May portion of the contest. Since then, the team has won multiple awards, including the 2011 Perdue National Chicken Championship, the Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle in 2011, the “Chinet People’s Choice” award for best BBQ sauce in 2010 and other notable Memphis in May and Kansas City Barbecue Society BBQ competition accolades as well as having their Pork Barrel BBQ Original BBQ Sauce named Best Sauce in America and one of “The 125 Best Foods for Men” by Men’s Health Magazine in November 2010.
