Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 26, 2010
Pork Barrel BBQ, the fastest-growing barbecue sauce company in America, announced today the company’s inaugural cookbook, the Pork Barrel BBQ Guide to Tailgating, is now available to the public for free on the company’s website, http://www.PorkBarrelBBQ.com. The company’s commemorative first edition tailgating cookbook features grilling tips and award-winning recipes created by Pork Barrel BBQ’s co-founders and winning contestants of ABC’s hit reality television show Shark Tank, Heath Hall and Brett Thompson.
“Thanks to the support of loyal Pork Barrel BBQ customers across the country we’ve been able to grow our company and grab a little piece of the American Dream,” said Heath Hall, President and co-founder of Pork Barrel BBQ. “During this difficult economic time, we are thrilled to be able to say ‘Thank You’ by offering our Pork Barrel BBQ Guide to Tailgating free of charge to our customers and BBQ’ers who arm themselves with grills and charcoal at football stadiums across America each and every weekend.”
Pork Barrel BBQ, the number one preferred choice of the backyard BBQ’er, has quickly developed a reputation in the food industry as a company that creates award-winning products that repeatedly best the competition at barbecue contests across the country. The November 2011 issue of Men’s Health magazine lists Pork Barrel BBQ’s Original BBQ Sauce as one of “The 125 Best Foods for Men” and considers it an “essential item” for grocery shopping lists. Earlier this year Pork Barrel BBQ’s Sweet BBQ Sauce won the prestigious “People’s Choice” award for best barbecue sauce, beating sauces from over 50 of the top professional barbecue teams in the nation at the Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle in Washington, D.C.
The company started selling sauces in 2009 and has since won numerous awards at Kansas City Barbecue Society and Memphis in May sanctioned competitions. One year after their appearance on 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 is slated to open in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia in early 2011.
People nationwide can try these award-winning sauces for themselves by purchasing them at local grocery stores such as Safeway, Whole Foods, Savemart, Schnucks, Wegmans, Harris Teeter, and Bloom.

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.
