Wow! I can’t believe that it is Meat Week 2012 already! It feels like it has only been a couple of months since our Meat Week 2011 experience. Oh well, I guess time really files by when you are having fun right? I had so much fun last year that I can’t wait to go this year, what made it even more exciting was the news that our good friends at Pork Barrel BBQ are going to be debuting a brand new Carolina Vinegar BBQ Sauce during DC’s Meet Week! I mean the with success of the restaurant, competition team, Peanuts and such more Heath and Bret have become one the leading barbecue sauces on the market.
“We’re extremely excited to be hosting our third Meet Week celebration and the first at our recently opened flagship Pork Barrel BBQ Restaurant,” said Hall, President of Pork Barrel BBQ. “Barbecue is America’s cuisine and is just as much about the community that gathers to enjoy each others company as it is about eating the slow smoked meaty goodness that comes out of the smoker. We look forward to welcoming the Meat Week community into our home as they dine on our award winning barbecue at our restaurant’s Community Table.”
Pork Barrel BBQ will be hosting Washington D.C. Meat Week participants at its restaurant, which Hall and Thompson opened with veteran restaurateurs “Mango” Mike Anderson and Bill Blackburn, on Tuesday, January 31st between 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at 2312 Mount Vernon Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia. Meat Week’ers will be among the first in the nation to taste the latest creation in Pork Barrel BBQ’s lineup of national award winning barbecue sauces – Pork Barrel BBQ Carolina Vinegar BBQ Sauce.
Meat lovers and barbecue enthusiasts like myself will be pleased with Pork Barrel BBQ’s special Meat Week Sampler Plate that includes ¼ pound of brisket, ¼ pound of pulled pork, ¼ chicken, 3 ribs, 1 Texas brisket sausage link and your choice of 2 sides for $20.12.
This year marks the eighth anniversary of the international Meat Week celebration. Organizers of DC’s Meat Week, Mike Bober and Jenelle Dennis, are extending the celebration, festivities to an eight days this year in DC.
“We are so excited to be a part of Pork Barrel BBQ’s DC debut of its Carolina Vinegar BBQ Sauce in its brand new digs,” said Dennis, Captain of DC Meat Week.
“Pork barrel BBQ has been a part of DC Meat Week since the beginning, and we anticipate another great showing this year,” said Bober, DC Meat Week Founder. “They’ve settled into their own space and their smoker is nice and seasoned – we’re looking forward to championship-quality ‘cue.”
