When thinking of Seattle, BBQ normally isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Most people probably conjure up images of Starbucks coffee, rainy afternoons, or an endless crowd of grungy flannel shirts. While each of those have certainly cemented their place in the city’s ever changing pop-culture, we’ve got our taste buds locked on a new line of BBQ rub that’s looking to re-brand the upper Northwest as the new BBQ hotbed.

Issuing a proclamation of “monumental flavor” is a tall order for any product to live up to. Only a brand hailing from our nation’s capital that’s been produced and distributed by ex-politicians would issue such a promise to the citizens of the United States. Luckily these politicians are originally from Missouri, so they’ve got a true barbecue agenda that can’t be swayed by lobbyist kickbacks or political bribery. We’ve been sampling their products for a few weeks now, and we can confidently confirm that you can take these politicians for their word with their Pork Barrel BBQ products!

Do you every wonder what the elite competition barbecue teams are doing to consistently put themselves in the winner’s circle? Well, every so often one of these teams will let that secret out to the masses by coming to market with a new and innovative barbecue product. It just so happens that we’ve got the inside track on the first shipment of a brand new competition marinade and injection that’s sure to shake up the circuit this year. Plus it never hurts that it was developed by the team responsible for bringing home the 2010 Jack Daniels Pork Championship, 2009 New York “Empire State” Grand Champion, 2009 5th place KCBS Team of the Year, 2008 American Royal Reserve Grand Champion, and boat load of every other barbecue award you could ever imagine!

Have you ever thought to yourself, “This (insert food here) would taste so much better with bacon and hot sauce”? I know that’s something that runs through my head daily. If there are two things in this world that can something better (check that…3 things, because BBQ Makes Everything Better), it’s bacon and hot sauce. Many times over I have put both of these on sandwiches, soups, salads, steaks, pork chops, chicken, eggs….this list goes on. In fact, this morning for breakfast I had a breakfast burrito with bacon and hot sauce, for lunch I had a turkey club sandwich with bacon and hot sauce, and for dinner…well, I had boneless buffalo wings, but they definitely would have been better if I had wrapped them in bacon. Point being here, how could Bacon Mania not yield a product that combines both of these intoxicating culinary marvels? The answer…it did!

As we round out our week long rendition of The Monthly Rubdown, you didn’t really think we’d showcase a line of all-natural seasonings without offering up a selection of sauces to go with it? Lucky for us, Three Little Pigs also have a complimentary line of all-natural BBQ sauces to pair with their tasty all-natural seasonings. If you’re a fan of their ever-popular Competition Sauce, then you’ll be happy to learn that each of these all-natural sauces were derived from that very recipe.

Admittedly, we’ve neglected our blog over the last couple of weeks. We know how much our readers hate it when we go on hiatus (primarily because we get your complaint emails), so this week we’re making it up to you with a 5 part version of The Monthly Rubdown. Each day we’ll be introducing you to a new product (or family of products) that’s now available in our online BBQ store. To kick-off this week of Rubdowns we’re rolling out a brand new gallon size of our best selling sauce.
