Pig Pickin' PR: A PIGtorial (I'm so clever)
Thanks to the intrepid photographer (and our friend) Lexie Moreland for coming out to the Barbecue Battle and doing what she does best. To see some of Lexie's bbq battle photos and read her reflection on the whole thing, check out her article at Brightest Young Things--
Part of managing a competitive barbecue team is managing publicity. We've worked hard to get Shirtless Mike's some exposure (pardon the pun). Many thanks to Roberta Vanderslice, the publicity manger of the Barbecue Battle, for all of her hard work and for placing us in a couple of widely read publications.
The Capitol Hill daily newspaper Roll Call, featured this piece about the barbecue battle from a legislative angle--
One Washington Battle That's All in Good Taste
Additionally, we had the good fortune of crossing paths with Ross Todd, a reporter from The American Lawyer, when he wrote a brief post about The Yummy Animals for the AmLaw Daily Blog.
After talking to Ross in the weeks leading up to the competition, The American Lawyer paid to send Ross down from New York to cover Shirtless Mike's and The Yummy Animals as we competed over the weekend.
Check back in this space in a couple of weeks to see Ross's piece on the BBQ Battle from a lawyer's perspective.
