The National Barbecue Association held it’s annual conference for 2014 in San Marco, TX and as the BBQ Pro Shop does every year, we like to recognize the Product, Rub and Sauce partners who placed in the Top 5 this year and use this as an opportunity to find new products that we should add to our All Star Line-up! BBQ Pro Shop has always made a commitment to find the best products from the professional pitmasters and family recipes that make the products so unique that you cannot find them in your local specialty shops.
One stand out this year was Famous Dave, I have had the
opportunity to get to know Dave Anderson just a little bit better through my association with the Illinois BBQ Alliance and he is a true BBQ man, through and through. The success of Famous Dave’s and it’s ability to stay true to BBQ through all of the expansion and success is something I appreciate. My family was in Hayward, WI this past summer and had the chance to visit the Original Famous Dave’s on the lake and all of the sauces and food was just great, highly 2014 you stop by if you are in the neighborhood!
