Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) November 3, 2010
BBQ Post 401, established in May 2010, is continuing its counterinsurgency efforts against fast food chains and 'corporate' food. It has taken its fight to the streets to free locals from their attachment to fat-filled, pitiful, thin patties. BBQ Post 401 will accept the trade-ins of fast food burgers in exchange for its hickory smoked barbeque, "thereby elevating barbeque to its rightful position within the Southern community of Fredericksburg," stated Nelson Head, commander of BBQ Post 401.
Fast food encampments, found on virtually every corner, have brainwashed the general population to believe they are the only option for sustenance. Copying the successful counterinsurgency tactic of trading in dangerous AK-47's in Iraq, BBQ Post 401 is working to reverse this trend by using the fast food chains' own weapons against them. BBQ Post 401 will accept fast food burger trade-ins for its hickory smoked barbeque sandwiches until the populace ceases supporting these chains.
Recruitment stations will be set up around the campus of the University of Mary Washington and throughout the community to enlist students and other locals to join BBQ Post 401's fight. Recruits will pass out leaflets, similar to the propaganda flyers U.S. Military planes dropped over enemy soldiers and civilians, in an attempt to influence their thinking.
"We know this will be a tough uphill battle; we are outnumbered but we will prevail. I can see the dedication and appreciation for fresh, slow-smoked Southern barbeque in the eyes of the local populace. They're looking for good food and value; they can see right through fast food propaganda," said Head.
BBQ Post 401 is also employing local media outlets to drive home its point. TV spots expose the scam employed by the corporate fast food boys touting their quarter pound burgers. "The only problem is it's raw!" explains Head. In addition, Head uses the power of radio, by speaking from behind the pink pig microphone, to describe the benefits of BBQ Post 401's food. "Locals are flocking to the Post now that they are secure in their knowledge that BBQ Post 401 is real pit barbeque smoked in the finest Southern tradition," stated Head.
Post 401's foods are prepared on site daily. Nothing has been previously canned or packaged. Following traditional Southern methods, pork, beef and chicken are smoked in pits for many hours and served alongside fresh, hand-cut fries, coleslaw, chocolate fudge and brewed iced tea. Visitors to BBQ Post 401 can see the barbeque cooking in the pit, smell the smoke and see their meat as it is being chopped.
