Pork Barrel BBQ is proud to announce that Wagshal’s, the premiere Washington D.C. butcher, market, deli and caterer now carries our award winning Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce and All American Spice Rub. We are very grateful and humbled that Bill, Brian and Aaron Fuchs, the owners of Wagshals, would carry our products. We are pretty crazy about BBQ, but I can honestly say that I’ve never ‘met people so committed to unique, high quality foods as the folks at Wagshal’s. They gave us a great tour, fed us smoked prime brisket sandwich (more on that in a future post), and sent us home with Iberico Pork to cook (they are the only place in the United States to offer Iberico pork). Here’s a shot of their deli managed by Brian Fuchs and his team:

Another shot of the deli:

They also have a huge catering operation, and are especially great at catering upscale weddings:

Here’s a shot inside their catering kitchen – be sure to note Bill Fuchs’ modified smoker in the corner (I was CRAZY jealous of it):

Oh, did I mention that they have some of the highest quality, unique cuts of meat in all of Washington D.C.? Here’s Heath and Aaron Fuchs with some great dry aged beef:

What is happiness? Having a great meal at Wagshal’s with Bill, Brian and Aaron Fuchs – be sure to visit them in Washington D.C. and learn all about them at http://www.Wagshals.com or visit them on twitter at http://www.twitter.com/wagshals

My family just attended a great block party – of course, I was attracted to the BBQ grills. I took a photo of the three BBQ grills that had been rolled out of several backyards to create the temporary kitchen on the lawn. The food (burgers, hotdogs and bratwurst) was excellent (I had three brats and didn’t have to cook at all!), and the entire experience just affirmed why we founded Pork Barrel BBQ. There is something uniquely American about a great BBQ that lets people forget their worries and come together as a community. Particularly in these economic times, where there just seems to be an extra pressure surrounding everything, it was truly amazing to watch how 75 people celebrated the good things in lives. If you want to bring this celebration to your backyard – be sure to try our All American Spice Rub!

If you’ve got a few extra minutes and your looking for a great food site surf on over to our friends Cook Man Food from Durango, Colorado at CookManFood.com. The guys were kind enough to post several blog posts featuring our All American Spice Rub. Check out post 1 and post 2 while you’re checking out their excellent food blog.

Here is the Mission Statement of Cook Man Food –

Mission Statement – Good food, good friends, a good drunken story, that is how we want everyone to live. It could be the guys getting together for a football game and enjoying the latest twist on a Turducken, it could be climbing a few 14,000 foot peaks over a weekend and eating bacon wrapped elk bundles stuffed with cheese and mushrooms. There are many trips and places where the man food philosophy comes into play. This site will help you learn better ways of cooking other than your noodles with ketchup or your fast food no flavor crap. We all eat three meals a day (sometimes five) we might as well enjoy them all to the fullest. This site will help teach the trade and craft to do that with ease

Now that’s a Mission Statement we can follow!

We love to cook ribs – in fact, I just smoked two slabs yesterday – they are so easy to cook, and with a little bit of Pork Barrel BBQ’s All American Spice Rub – they are guaranteed to be a big success at the party. A big part of grilling or cooking is space management. We’ve talked about a lot of important tools on this blog – if you bbq a lot, epecially bbq ribs on your bbq smoker or grill – a rib rack is a key tool of the trade! We use the 22.5 inch Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker, and always use the rib rack to make sure we can fit all the ribs we are smoking. There are a lot of good choices – make sure you get a heavy duty kind, I’ve seen some that bend at the mere site of the ribs we cook!
