Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 20, 2010
In recent months Men's Health magazine has been searching grocery store shelves across the country in pursuit of a healthy shopping list comprised of the healthiest and tastiest foods for men. After comparing nutrition labels and conducting head-to-head taste tests among top BBQ sauce brands, Men’s Health selected Pork Barrel BBQ Original BBQ Sauce as one of “The 125 Best Foods for Men.”
The November 2010 issue of Men’s Health highlights the magazine’s feat of tasting, testing, and ranking thousands of grocery store products to find the healthiest, tastiest foods for men. Of the thousands of commercially available BBQ sauces available, Men’s Health selected Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original BBQ Sauce as an “essential item” for grocery shopping lists.
Earlier this year, taste testers and sauce aficionados with Men's Health blog selected Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original BBQ Sauce as their number one go-to grilling favorite.
“Our Pork Barrel BBQ Original BBQ Sauce is made of all natural ingredients with no preservatives and is sure to give the food at your next BBQ the perfect smokin’ kick,” said Heath Hall, President and co-founder of Pork Barrel BBQ. “It is a tremendous honor to have Men’s Health name our BBQ sauce the best BBQ sauce for men and recognize our efforts to produce an all natural and nutritional gourmet BBQ sauce at an affordable price.”
According to Men’s Health, with only 35 calories, <1 gram of protein, and 8 grams of carbs, Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original BBQ Sauce is great slapped, “on chicken just minutes before it comes off the grill for a tangy, smoky flavor.”
Pork Barrel BBQ has quickly become the preferred BBQ sauce for the backyard BBQ’er. Since the company started selling BBQ sauces in 2009, all types of BBQ’ers – from competition smokers to casual grillers – have taken notice of their sensational sauces. Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original and Sweet sauces have taken home numerous top awards from the Kansas City Barbecue Society and Memphis in May competitions, including winning the “People’s Choice” award at the prestigious annual Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle in Washington, D.C.
One year after their appearance on the ABC and Mark Burnett reality show Shark Tank, the company has experienced huge growth, and their Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Spice Rub are now carried in over 1,000 stores in 38 states. The first Pork Barrel BBQ restaurant will open in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia later this fall.

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 products one bottle at a time. In less than one year, their Pork Barrel BBQ Sauces and Spice Rub were carried in over 1,000 stores in 38 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.
