Peg Leg Porker Brings The Art Of BBQ To The Masses - Smoke Like A Pro Kit Is The Ultimate Summer Gift

Real Memphis BBQ can be hard to find, but now Carey Bringle, one of the country's top BBQ Pitmasters, shows you how to smoke it yourself with his new kit, Smoke Like a Pro.

    NASHVILLE, TN, March 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Peg Leg Porker is expanding its line of award-winning Tennessee BBQ sauces and dry rub with the Smoke Like A Pro Kit--the only all-in-one BBQ kit on the market that gives you everything you need to cook authentic Memphis-style BBQ on your home grill. The ideal gift for Father's Day or to celebrate the beginning of BBQ season, the Smoke Like A Pro Kit is not just grill tools packaged in a cool box. "Our kit is unique. It's the only kit out there that actually teaches you step-by-step how to make real BBQ at home and gives you the tools to do it," says Carey Bringle, owner of Peg Leg Porker Brands and Pitmaster of the renowned Peg Leg Porker Competition Team. After 30 years of cooking championship BBQ, Bringle knows that everyone can cook great BBQ if they're taught how.

Available for pork or chicken, the Smoke Like A Pro Kit ($39.95) includes easy-to-follow instructions and all the necessary tools, from an injector kit to wood chips to the award-winning Peg Leg Porker Memphis Wet Sauce, which was selected as one of Bon Appetit's Championship BBQ Sauces in 2008. Described by the editors as, "a thick sauce with herbal, earthy flavors," Memphis Wet Sauce ($7.98) works well on pork, chicken, brisket or grilled shrimp, in coleslaw or in baked beans. Peg Leg Porker Alabama White Sauce, a North Alabama BBQ staple, is a tangy mayonnaise-based sauce perfect on smoked chicken or turkey, as a slaw dressing or a complement to hot wings. To round out the line, Peg Leg Porker Dry Rub ($6.98) is what brings the authentic BBQ flavor to life. Delicious on ribs, shoulder, chicken or brisket, it also adds depth to bean and vegetable dishes, casseroles, sauces or soups.

With deep West Tennessee roots, Bringle was born to make great barbecue. Surrounded by a family and community passionate about cooking barbecue the right way, he spent his youth eating at legendary BBQ joints like Leonard's Real Pit BBQ and Bozo's. But it wasn't until he was diagnosed at age of 17 with Osteogenic Sarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer to which he won the intense battle but lost his right leg, that he came away with a zest to enjoy life to its fullest--which included making and sharing delicious BBQ. Three-time second-place winner of the Memphis in May competition, Bringle has been asked to serve up his best West Tennessee barbecue for Esquire Magazine's "Best Of" party and Food & Wine's Classic in Aspen, and been named Nashville's Top 40 under 40 by the Tennessean Newspaper. Bringle's generous spirit extends to those in need: He co-founded Professionals Organized to Start Helping (P.O.S.H.), a Nashville charity dedicated to helping feed the hungry, and is a former board member for the United Cerebral Palsy of Nashville, a charity that he still works with closely.

Peg Leg Porker, based in Nashville, Tennessee, produces a line of authentic Tennessee BBQ products. Available nationwide, the line includes the Smoke Like A Pro Kit, featured on QVC, award-winning Peg Leg Porker Memphis Wet Sauce, Peg Leg Porker Alabama Sauce, and Peg Leg Porker Dry Rub. Carey Bringle, the owner and founder of Peg Leg Porker Brands and the Peg Leg Porkers (a BBQ team that has won numerous competitions over the past 20 years), brings 30 years of experience in cooking award-winning Memphis-style BBQ to his product line.
