As loyal readers are aware, we at BBQJew.com (become a fan on Facebook!) have done our fair share of shameless self-promotion (BBQ Jew bumper stickers or aprons, anyone?). Thus, we know a good attempt at self-promotion when we see one. And a recent attempt was pretty good. On April Fool’s Day we received an email from Page Skelton, President of NC-based hot sauce company Cackalacky, Inc.
Page’s message featured the subject line “Barbecue Cookies?” and read: “Me say yes, BBQ Jew!… Celebrating April 1st – the first day of Cackalacky Cookout Season – with our colossal Spiced Barbecue Cookies! Nom, nom, nom…” Attached to his message was the below picture. Well played, sir, but next year give me a little more advance notice if you want free publicity on the real April Fool’s Day instead of on April 30th! For what it’s worth, I really do enjoy Cackalacky sauce, though I have to admit that I have yet to try it on barbecue.
