John Willingham Honored at Memphis In May 2012

Willingham’s Original Rub is a best seller for the BBQ Pro Shop on Amazon and on our store. We were introduced to the Original WHAM by our BBQ and Grilling mentor Elizabeth Karmel and it was one of the first rubs that we started to carry. We had an opportunity to talk to John when we placed an order with him, and he told us some great news, fresh from his return from Memphis in May 2012.

Memphis in May recognized John as creator of the indirect cooking, his accomplishments of being part of MIM for 30 years  and using the first dry BBQ Rub. He was inducted into the BBQ Hall of Fame with Mike Mills and John Willingham is one of the BBQ greats. An honor and a pleasure to support and recognize him for all he has done for BBQ!
