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 one bottle at a time. One year later, their Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Spice Rub are on pace to be carried in over 1,000 stores in 40 states by summer 2010.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.

Pork Barrel BBQ is proud to announce that Wagshal’s, the premiere Washington D.C. butcher, market, deli and caterer now carries our award winning Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce and All American Spice Rub. We are very grateful and humbled that Bill, Brian and Aaron Fuchs, the owners of Wagshals, would carry our products. We are pretty crazy about BBQ, but I can honestly say that I’ve never ‘met people so committed to unique, high quality foods as the folks at Wagshal’s. They gave us a great tour, fed us smoked prime brisket sandwich (more on that in a future post), and sent us home with Iberico Pork to cook (they are the only place in the United States to offer Iberico pork). Here’s a shot of their deli managed by Brian Fuchs and his team:

Another shot of the deli:

They also have a huge catering operation, and are especially great at catering upscale weddings:

Here’s a shot inside their catering kitchen – be sure to note Bill Fuchs’ modified smoker in the corner (I was CRAZY jealous of it):

Oh, did I mention that they have some of the highest quality, unique cuts of meat in all of Washington D.C.? Here’s Heath and Aaron Fuchs with some great dry aged beef:

What is happiness? Having a great meal at Wagshal’s with Bill, Brian and Aaron Fuchs – be sure to visit them in Washington D.C. and learn all about them at http://www.Wagshals.com or visit them on twitter at http://www.twitter.com/wagshals.
