National honors won for BBQ

November 16, 2005

Bainbridge, Georgia-- Two businessmen are celebrating a top award for their barbecuing.

Naked Pig Barbecue Company co-founder, Mike Brock, smokes meat with a rub that just won him a national honor. "We won first place in the Scovie awards, the firey foods awards," says Brock.

Consider Brock a grilling guru, an inventor of edibles. He wakes up around 2:30 each morning to get fired up. "I have the Boston Butts marinated overnight. I put the butts on around 5:00 and let them cook all day," says Brock.

Naked Pig was started about a year ago inside Betty's Cafeteria, Brock's mother's restaurant in Bainbridge "I'm proud of these boys. They've worked hard trying to get this rub going," says Mrs. Brock.

Much like Betty's Cafeteria, Brock's partner, Chuck Taylor, says Naked Pig is a labor of love. "I have always liked to cook for a hobby, and my partner, he's been cooking for over 25 years, and this is just a way we can have fun doing what we do,
says Taylor.

From food lovers to food trend setters. Hawg Rub beat out barbecuers who've been in the business for decades. "We told them it was our first time entering anything. They were really surprised at that. They said it was just really huge," says Taylor.

By now you may be wondering why the company's called "Naked Pig Barbecue." It's really quite simple. "The pig's clean, and you're going to dress him with his hog rub," says Taylor. "Just rub it till it squeals. Makes it good," adds Brock.

Hawg Rub isn't just for pork. It can be used on any type of meat. Naked Pig also makes preservatives, jellies, and sauces. Log onto nakedpigbbq.com to find out where to get them.
