Customer Testimonials – Thanks for All the Kind Words About Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce and Dry Rub!

Taste of Del Ray

The greatest honor for us is when our customers send us an email, or call to tell us that they like our Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce or Dry Rub.  It’s been a great year, and our bar b que sauce and dry rub has been used on countless pulled pork, bbq ribs, chicken and veggie recipes this summer.  We are so thankful for your support and wanted to share what some of our customers are saying:

“We happened to see your stint on Shark Tank – shortly after, our neighborhood store had your goods on display.  We tried it, and LOVED it!!  My husband is currently eating some sauce on his chicken and stated that it is his favorite sauce on the planet.” – email from Jill, Ft. Mill, South Carolina

“I spent my life trying to create the perfect gourmet bbq sauce, and was given a jar of your Pork Barrel BBQ sauce.  I used it on chicken and couldn’t believe that such an amazing taste could come from a bottle – I immediately went to my refrigerator and threw out all the BBQ sauce in it – yours will be the only BBQ sauce I ever use  – its the most amazing sauce I’ve ever tasted” phone call from University City, Missouri.

“Pork Barrel BBQ makes cooking a flavorful dinner on a time crunch easy. When I get home from work and want to throw dinner together I can take any piece of chicken, fish or beef, throw on some rub and cook it up. It is delicious, easy, and a staple in my cupboard.” – Krista, Washington, D.C.

“I used the All American Spice Rub to grill chicken for my teenage daughters – they said it was the best chicken I have ever made – I’m a customer for life!” – Jim, St. Louis, Missouri

“I was given a tin of the rub and have used it exclusively on salmon…….fabulous!!!!! I have yet to use it on anything else as I have run out and is time to reorder. You have a winner.” – Dian, St. Louis, Missouri

Not only does our All American Spice Rub taste great – but it is all natural and contains no preservatives and no MSG. The rub is manufactured locally in Virginia to reduce its carbon footprint. Now whats more bipartisan than that?

 

Greatest Compliment Ever – Customer Says Pork Barrel BBQ is better than Kansas City BBQ Giants Arthur Bryant’s & Gates

I was following Pork Barrel BBQ on Twitter the other night when Pork Barrel BBQ received the greatest Barbecue compliment ever from http://www.twitter.com/claffee in a tweet:

@claffee Had a bbq rub taste test on the Iberico pork ribs the other night – @porkbarrelbbq beat Arthur Bryant’s and Gates in my opinion!”

We’ve never met @claffee (but he clearly has great wisdom and should be followed on Twitter) – but he clearly has some great taste – because he is 1) using Pork Barrel BBQ’s All American Spice Rub, and 2) is eating Iberico pork ribs.

For those of you who don’t follow meat – Iberico ribs just recently became available in the Washington D.C. market thanks to the amazing folks at Wagshals and Jose Andres. We did a post on heritage breeds of pigs earlier this year – so if you want to learn more about the topic, read Heath’s post here.

We are incredibly humbled that someone would compare our products to Kansas City BBQ greats like Arthur Bryant’s and Gates BBQ. We will keep working hard to deliver great BBQ at prices all Americans can afford. As two guys from Kansas City, we hope Pork Barrel BBQ’s dry rubs and sauces someday have the reputation of Arthur Bryant’s BBQ and Gates BBQ.
