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.

Fire Up Your Grills This Memorial Day With Meat From Wagshal’s!!!!

It’s Memorial Day weekend Pork Barrel BBQ nation, the weekend that marks the unofficial official start to summer and that can only mean one thing – it’s time to fire up your grills and smokers and get cooking over an open flame!!!!  There are a few things you need to get your summer grilling season off right:

1) A Grill and/or Smoker
2) Some Cold Drinks
3) Family & Friends
4) Corn on the Cob – can you really have a good BBQ without Corn on the Cob? We think not!!!!!!
5) Meat (Pork, Chicken, Beef, Lamb, Shrimp, Buffalo, Venison, Quail, Fish……)

Most of us own a grill (If you don’t shame on you and go buy one this weekend!!!). We’ve all probably got some beer, soda, Iced Tea, lemonade, etc.. that we can chill down. Family and friends – not a problem when they smell that distinctive smell of smoking wood and charcoal, in fact you’ll have more family and friends than you ever knew you had. Corn on the Cob – any respectable grocery store, farmer’s market or road side stand can load you up with some great corn (we like Delaware White and Peach’s & Cream varieties!!). Now to number 5 – where are you going to get that meat? Why not treat yourself to the best meat around by heading over to our friends at Wagshal’s in Washington, DC (drop in or have them ship it to you!!!)

Why Wagshal’s? Simply put, they are the best. Since 1925 Wagshal’s has been synonymous with great food and service (That’s more than 85 years of experience providing America with the greatest meat available!!). Wagshal’s is located in the heart of Washington, DC’s Spring Valley neighborhood at 4845 Massachusetts Ave., NW and has the following hours:

Hours of Operation:
Mon-Fri 10:00am-8:00pm
Sat 10:00am-7:00pm
Sun 10:00am-6:00pm April through October and 10:00am-5:00pm November through March

Wagshal’s has all your general meat needs like steaks, ribs, lamb chops, chicken and sausages, but if you really want to kick it up give their Iberico Pork a try – amazing is the only word I can think of to describe it!!!

If you want to be grilling with award winning meats give Wagshal’s a call at 202-363-0777!!! You’ll be smoking and grilling like a champion in no time!! Don’t forget to stock up on Pork Barrel BBQ sauces and rubs while you’re shopping at Wagshal’s!!!

A special thanks to Wagshal’s for all the support they give to the Pork Barrel BBQ Competition Team – we couldn’t do it without their great meats and encouragement!!!!

Costco Welcomes Fastest Growing BBQ Sauce Company in America to Shelves In Time For BBQ Season

Pork Barrel BBQ today announced Costco Wholesale Corporation will carry Pork Barrel BBQ Original BBQ Sauce in 15 stores across the Mid-Atlantic region.

“The support and encouragement Costco provides small businesses like Pork Barrel BBQ is almost unheard of in the grocery industry,” said Brett Thompson, CEO and co-founder of Pork Barrel BBQ. “Thanks to Costco we’ve been able to move from a regional BBQ sauce brand to the fastest growing BBQ sauce brand in America.”

After discovering Pork Barrel BBQ on ABC’s Shark Tank, Costco became one of the earliest retail supporters to give Pork Barrel BBQ the opportunity to introduce its line of gourmet BBQ products to a national consumer audience through its Road Show program.

“Having our BBQ sauce on the shelves of Costco stores is a dream come true,” said Heath Hall, President and co-founder of Pork Barrel BBQ. “A little over 2 years ago we were a two-man operation with a vision to create a great tasting and healthy BBQ sauce that everyone from the backyard BBQ’er to the veteran pitmaster could enjoy and afford. Thanks to Costco, hundreds of thousands of consumers will have the opportunity to make this summers BBQ season even better with Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce!”

Best BBQ Sauce - Pork Barrel BBQ

Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 20, 2010

In recent months Men’s Health (http://www.menshealth.com/bestfoods/at-the-grocery.php#tab387) magazine has been searching grocery store shelves across the country in pursuit of a healthy shopping list comprised of the healthiest and tastiest foods for men. After comparing nutrition labels and conducting head-to-head taste tests among top BBQ sauce brands, Men’s Health selected Pork Barrel BBQ (http://www.porkbarrelbbq.com) Original BBQ Sauce as one of “The 125 Best Foods for Men.”

The November 2010 issue of Men’s Health highlights the magazine’s feat of tasting, testing, and ranking thousands of grocery store products to find the healthiest, tastiest foods for men. Of the thousands of commercially available BBQ sauces available, Men’s Health selected Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original BBQ Sauce as an “essential item” for grocery shopping lists.

Earlier this year, taste testers and sauce aficionados with Men’s Health blog (http://www.porkbarrelbbq.com/pork-barrel-bbq-sauce-tops-men%e2%80%99s-health-magazine-blog-bottled-bbq-sauce-favorites/) selected Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original BBQ Sauce as their number one go-to grilling favorite.

“Our Pork Barrel BBQ Original BBQ Sauce is made of all natural ingredients with no preservatives and is sure to give the food at your next BBQ the perfect smokin’ kick,” said Heath Hall, President and co-founder of Pork Barrel BBQ. “It is a tremendous honor to have Men’s Health name our BBQ sauce the best BBQ sauce for men and recognize our efforts to produce an all natural and nutritional gourmet BBQ sauce at an affordable price.”

According to Men’s Health, with only 35 calories, <1 gram of protein, and 8 grams of carbs, Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original BBQ Sauce is great slapped, “on chicken just minutes before it comes off the grill for a tangy, smoky flavor.”

Pork Barrel BBQ has quickly become the preferred BBQ sauce for the backyard BBQ’er. Since the company started selling BBQ sauces in 2009, all types of BBQ’ers – from competition smokers to casual grillers – have taken notice of their sensational sauces. Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original and Sweet sauces have taken home numerous top awards from the Kansas City Barbecue Society and Memphis in May competitions, including winning the “People’s Choice” award at the prestigious annual Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle in Washington, D.C.

One year after their appearance on the ABC and Mark Burnett reality show Shark Tank, the company has experienced huge growth, and their Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Spice Rub are now carried in over 1,000 stores in 38 states. The first Pork Barrel BBQ restaurant will open in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia later this fall.

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 38 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 “People’s Choice” award for best BBQ sauce in 2010 and other notable Memphis and May and Kansas City Barbecue Society BBQ competition accolades.
