Pork Barrel BBQ Restaurant Making Progress in Del Ray!

Posted on:

In August of last year we announced that we had teamed with “Mango” Mike Anderson and Bill Blackburn, two of the area’s top restaurateurs, to bring the first Pork Barrel BBQ Restaurant to the Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.  After a slow start on the restaurants construction that has been further hampered by all of the snow, we are pleased to announce that the future home of the first Pork Barrel BBQ Restaurant is starting to look like a building.

The first Pork Barrel BBQ Restaurant will be located in the heart of Del Ray on the corner of Mount Vernon Ave. and Oxford St. near The Dairy Godmother and Let’s Meat on the Avenue (where you can buy Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Rubs).

We are looking forward to a late spring/early summer opening and can’t wait to welcome you through our doors in the near future.  In the meantime be sure to stop by Mango Mike’s for a great meal and let us know if we can meet any of your catering needs!!

Meat Week 2010 – Pork Barrel BBQ Participating in Washington D.C. Meat Week 2010

Posted on:

In celebration of Meat Week, The Del Ray Boys of BBQ (Heath Hall and Brett Thompson of Pork Barrel BBQ & Mike Anderson and Bill Blackburn of Mango Mike’s) are giving folks a taste (or two, or three) of the new Pork Barrel BBQ restaurant as part of the Washington D.C. Meat Week!

So what is Meat Week? Born in Tallahassee, Meat Week is a festival of smoked meats. For eight days, participants pay homage to that most original culinary combination – meat and fire. BBQ lovers have the opportunity to get together at a different barbecue establishment each night for a week as part of the Washington, D.C. Meat Week. At the end of the week (Meat Week That Is!), after lips have been licked and belts loosened, stories are swapped, awards are given, and plans are made to do it all again the next year as part of Meat Week 2011.
