Sale on BBQ Jew Merch

Now through Monday, save 14.92% on BBQ Jew t-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers and all other merchandise.  Click on the Merch tab at the top right of our web page and follow the link to the vendor’s site.  Once on the vendor’s site, just enter “1492Columbus” as the code at checkout to get the discount.  It’s a good way to honor Columbus, since he sailed the ocean blue and introduced the New World to hogs pink.  And, frankly, making barbecue possible for future generations may be Columbus’ most impressive legacy.

The Power of Social Netporking

In observance of Earth Day, which we support despite our carnivorous ways, today’s post is vegetarian and features a completely pork-free message (well, at least no pictures of dead hogs).  Instead, today’s post focuses on shameless self-promotion.  In response to popular demand from our legions legion of devotees, we have created a Facebook page.  Please consider joining The BBQ Jew Crew if any of the following 10 statements apply to you:

1. I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night salivating for chopped pork.

2. I often wake up in the morning craving barbecue and scrambled eggs.

3. I am skeptical of social networking but believe in the world-changing power of social netporking.

4. After experiencing a strange and sudden metamorphosis I find myself with four hooves and a yarmulke.

5. I think there ought to be a Jess Swicegood & Sid Weaver Day holiday in NC.

6. I have too much time on my hands.

7. I am Jewish and eat pork.

8. I am not Jewish and eat pork.

9. I am agnostic when it comes to religion but fundamentalist when it comes to barbecue.

10. I like both swine and the Interweb.

The benefits of joining The BBQ Jew Crew are almost too many to name, so I will focus on just a couple.  First, you get to plug our website in exchange for no compensation whatsoever.  Second, you get to wow your friends by being part of an exclusive club for which membership is available only to those that apply.  If those compelling reasons haven’t convinced you, we’ll forgive you.  Oh, and we promise to post something a wee bit more substantive (to the extent possible on a website devoted to barbecue) on Friday.  Until then, happy Earth Day.
