Dizzy Pig® Barbecue Company, maker of brightly flavored and perfectly balanced seasonings for barbecue, grilling and home cooking, is hosting its third “DizzyFest,” on Saturday, November 10th from 10:00AM to 5:30PM in Manassas,Virginia.

Special guest, Mike Kerslake will demonstrate his famous curing recipes.

Mike Kerslake’s history with Dizzy Pig® goes back to 2002, co-founding the company and bringing in Dizzy Dust™ and CowLick™ blends.  After running the Canadian end of business for a number of years, Kerslake decided to put all efforts into competition barbecue and other culinary pursuits.  These efforts lead to awards in Canada and the U.S. including the Canadian Open Championship in 2005 and top International team at the Jack Daniels barbecue competition in 2006. An interest in curing of meats for the restaurant lead to several recipes, now featured on the Dizzy Pig® website. Kerslake has been promoting the ‘Formula to Success’ brine curing recipe; a formula to produce customized meat curing for the home enthusiast.  It is this technique and recipe that Kerslake will be demonstrating at DizzyFest 3, November 10th.  The free demo is an introduction to the world of artisan meat curing as Kerslake demystifies the craft.
