Just in time for the Fourth of July, I received this really cool barbecue concept in the mail from the Pig of the Month BBQ Club, which arrives ready to eat within 30 minutes. It’s all the great taste of bbq without having to wait hours and hours for it to cook. They not only ship babyback ribs (Texas or St Louis Style), but also bacon and sausage and pulled pork as well – I guess this is a case when pigs really do “fly”.
Born from the love of BBQ coupled with a burning desire not to wear a suit to work every day, founder Lea Richards launched Pig of the Month in January 2011.
Today, Pig of the Month delivers homemade and ready to eat barbecue ribs, pulled pork, BBQ sauce, Southern-style side dishes, and locally sourced desserts to homes all over the country.
They also use only certified humane and natural meats from DuBreton Farm and source local ingredients, organic herbs, and spices and even offers gluten-free options for those with dietary restrictions.
The meats arrive in a box with dry ice that keeps them frozen and allows the meat to stay preserved in its state. After that you can either freeze it or put it in the oven for about 30 minutes and have meat ready to eat.
Everyone from truck drivers to talk show hosts to famous chefs have chowed down on Pig of the Month’s smoked meats including Whoopi Goldberg, Iron Chef Michael Symon, Paula Deen, Stephen Colbert, Chelsea Handler, and a couple more that can not be mentioned.
Three sauces are also available including
Key West — Inspired by a dinner cooked up by an altruistic stranger who treated a family member’s jellyfish sting in her beach shack, these ribs are rubbed with coriander, cumin, and coffee, slathered with a tropical-and-citrus-fruit BBQ sauce, and smoked over Cherry wood, which burns lower and slower when it’s (A.C.) green.
Mild and Tangy Love Me Tender — This barbeque sauce will have you saying, Cattleman who?
This is a slow simmered family recipe that is both tangy, sweet, and a bit spicy all at the same time.
It’s a tasty blend of ground black pepper, brown sugar, and worcestershire that makes up this silky red sauce.
We’ve been know to throw this sauce on everything from baked potatoes to grilled cheese sandwiches to good old chicken. Multiple award winner and as seen on QVC
SWEET AND SMOKEY CATTLE KING TEXAS BRISKET AND BBQ SAUCE — A little bit tomato goodness, a little bit of smokey flavor, and a lot delicious, here’s a barbecue sauce Michael Symon called “divine”. It can take grilled chicken to delicious new heights and ribs to a master level. The perfect mix of sweet, salty, savory, and smokey, this barbecue sauces is as wonderful slathered on burgers and brats as it is on pizza and sandwiches. It’s a 3 time award winner for a reason.
The meat is in the oven and I’ll have an update later this week on how it turns out!
