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:
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!!!!
