Pig of the Month – Giveaway!

Football season has officially arrived.

Oh – you already noticed, huh? Me too.

I actually have not attended a game yet – Chris took Ali on a date to the first one, and the second was an away game.  But my time will come – yes, my time will come.

We have, on the other hand, started watching the sport in plenteous quantities.  And, if you ask my husband, it’s not really watching football unless there’s pork involved.  Which takes a LOT of time at the grill for Chris.

So when Pig of the Month contacted me and wanted us to try their BBQ (and give some away to you), I could nearly feel the hours my husband’s of prep and grilling time fall back into my lap.


Pig of the Month is a family owned business that treats Bar B Que with the same regard and passion that I treat Greek Food: they try it in every city they visit.  After scouring the country for the best, they opened up their own business, right  from their kitchen! They’ve brought together the best tastes of the country, and are now shipping them to BBQ lovers everywhere!

They have awesome gift options, including, you guessed it – a Pig of the Month Package.

(Think Christmas Vacation Jelly of the Month Club – except a gift that would actually thrill the male race!!)

But besides their monthly packages, they have many other special and customizable packages of ribs, pulled pork, sauces, sides – you name it!

Their package arrived at my doorstep, and I excitedly opened it, knowing that a gift of this magnitude was going to make me Wife of the Year when Chris got home.

I appreciated their thoroughness: including the Moist Towelettes was a nice touch.


But besides the cleanup accessories, they included everything we needed for a football feast: Pulled Pork, a rack of ribs, and extra sauce.

All that Chris and I had to do was warm it  up – a glorious change, if you ask me!!

The pulled pork was my favorite – it was tender, extremely juicy, and had a wonderful sweet taste to it.  The ribs were awesome also – smoky, spicy, and tender.  I didn’t need the extra sauce, but Chris tried it and loved it – he said it was thin, sweet, and spicy.  It reminded him of a long-ago discontinued BBQ sauce of his youth, and he informed me that we’d be ordering more soon.

Would you like some pork delivered to your doorstep?

If so, Pig of the Month has offered to send one of you their tailgating special!

This package includes everything you’ll need for a fabulous feast:

  • FOUR racks of Texas Style Ribs,
  • A big Bottle of BBQ sauce,
  • and TWO pounds of pulled pork.
  • And, of course, Moist Towelettes.

If you would like to win this awesome Package of Pig, simply comment on this post and tell me what your favorite football (or football-aversion) tradition is!
