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.
