Whole Foods Adds Pork Barrel BBQ Spice Rub to Grocery Shelves

Washington, DC (October 18, 2010) – Pork Barrel BBQ today announced Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFMI) has now added Pork Barrel BBQ All American Spice Rub to join the Award Winning Pork Barrel BBQ Original and Sweet BBQ Sauces to their shelves in their Mid-Atlantic Region. Grocery shoppers and BBQ lovers can now find Pork Barrel BBQ rub in Whole Foods stores in Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia & Washington, D.C.

Just in time for the holiday season, customers can purchase Pork Barrel BBQ All American Spice Rub at their local Whole Foods and enjoy both the taste and quality of the award-winning rub and sauce. Whole Foods selected Pork Barrel BBQ because the company and its premium BBQ products align with Whole Food’s commitment to offering the highest quality and least processed foods.  The All American Spice rub can be found in the spice aisle, right next to Old Bay seasoning.

Ways to Use the All American Spice Rub / Dry Rub

Pork Barrel BBQ’s All American Spice Rub / Dry Rub is a special dry rub blend of herbs and spices that is sure to provide a distinctive flavor to all your meals – both on and off the grill. Its an amazing dry rub for ribs – but don’t just reach for our All American Spice Rub when you’re looking for a rib rub; try it with vegetables, dips, sauces, and in drinks. We hope you will experiment with our All American Spice Rub and share with us the ways you have found to enjoy the product.

The following are ways that Pork Barrel BBQ fans have used the rub:

• It is great as a dry rub for meats, poultry and fish. It marries well with beef, pork, lamb and chicken. Bring the meat to room temperature, coat the meat with olive oil, rub on a generous amount of the spice mix and cook as you normally would on your grill, in your smoker, on your stove, or in your oven.

• If you like Bloody Mary’s, then wet the lip of the glass and use our spice mix instead of salt to rim the drink.
• Spice up your nachos by adding our spice mix to your cheese prior to melting.
• Sprinkle the spice mix on a salad and then mix a small amount with olive oil as a bread dip to eat with the salad.
• If you like pumkpin seeds, try using our spice mix instead of the recommended spices.
• For a new taste to your morning eggs, use the spice mix instead of salt and pepper.
• As a popcorn topping, simply sprinkle on top of a fresh bowl of popcorn.
• On sushi (no joke – someone emailed us a note that they LOVE this), mix with soy sauce as an alternative to wasabi.

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. In less than one year, their Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Spice Rub are now 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 “People’s Choice” award for best bbq sauce in 2010 and other notable Memphis and May and Kansas City Barbecue Society bbq competition accolades.

Operation Pork Barrel BBQ

Pork Barrel BBQ and the USO need your support! We are traveling to Fort Riley Army Base next Thursday, October 7th, to join Rod and Sheri Gray of the Pellet Envy BBQ Team, the reigning Kansas City Barbecue Society Team of the Year, to cook for the soldiers and families of Fort Riley, Kansas.

The USO facility at Fort Riley just opened in May and has already had their 10,000th visitor – it’s an important place for our men and women in uniform and their families to relax while on base. Due to budget cuts, the Fort Riley USO facility had to scrap their plans to create an outdoor BBQ area for soldiers to gather and share a meal with their fellow soldiers.

Here’s where you come in – we want to raise the money to fully fund the construction of the Fort Riley USO outdoor patio/BBQ area – but we need to raise $5,000 by Thursday, October 7th!

Pork Barrel BBQ is kicking in $1,000 and our amazing business partner from the ABC’s and Mark Burnett’s reality show Shark Tank, New York real estate mogul and author Barbara Corcoran has donated $1,000 – so we need your help today to get the rest of the way to our goal!

Here are two ways to help:

Donate $25 by clicking this link, or the image below – and 100 percent of your contribution will go to the USO to build the Fort Riley facility. For your generosity, we’ll send you a FREE collectors edition Pork Barrel BBQ tin of All American Spice Rub.

Donate $100 or more by clicking this link or the image below – 100 percent of your contribution will go to the USO and we’ll send you both a FREE collectors edition Pork Barrel BBQ tin of All American Spice Rub and a FREE Limited Edition Pork Barrel BBQ hat!

Want to donate more than $100? Please give Heath or Brett a call at (888) 4 PORK BARREL (476-7522)and we will process your donation and feature you on our Pork Barrel BBQ Blog.


So DON’T WAIT – the USO and the soldiers at Fort Riley need your support TODAY! We’ll keep you posted via our website, Facebook and Twitter on the progress.
