Only guys who’ve worked on Capitol Hill could come up with a name like “Pork Barrel” for their barbecue sauce and spice rubs. Founded in 2008 by two young Senate staffers, Pork Barrel BBQ was born out of their frustration at not being able to find real, down home barbecue in Washington, DC like they were used to back in their native Missouri.

So, like all plucky entrepreneurs, they decided to jump into the ring and create their own barbecue products. They whipped up some finger lickin’ good BBQ sauce and started entering it in national competitions. Pork Barrel BBQ held its own against the best BBQ sauces in the nation, winning a truckload of awards, and now it’s available in stores, restaurants, and online to anyone who enjoys good barbecue.

There are several flavors to choose from, including Sweet BBQ Sauce, Mustard BBQ Sauce, and Carolina Vinegar BBQ Sauce. Some folks swear the best option is to get the Sampler Packs, so you can try each flavor and see which one gets your taste buds rocking. You’ll also want to try Pork Barrel’s All-American Spice Rub, a combination of 14 herbs and spices that will give a smoky, savory flavor to pork, beef, poultry, seafood, vegetables and even popcorn! Buy it by the jar or the case, but odds are you’ll find plenty of uses for this tangy concoction.

Who needs bland, dull food? Pork Barrel BBQ and Spice Rub will make any meal an exciting, memorable experience. Visit the Web site for recipes, a store locator, online ordering and lots of fun events and promotions. Your meals will never be the same!
