Judas Pig BBQ Sauce by ursulav Judas Pig BBQ Sauce by ursulav
I live in North Carolina, a state that takes its barbecue VERY seriously. There are barbecue joints every five feet, and the debate over eastern vs. western NC barbecue has occasionally claimed lives.* And every one of these places has a sign out front with a grinning pig on it, frequently licking sauce of its fingers, advertising just how great their pulled pork is.

Every time I see one of these pigs, I wonder at the kind of animal that can sell out its species and dine with such cruel cannibalistic glee. Treacherous swine!

On the other hand, way back in the day, many slaughterhouses employed a "Judas Goat." This goat lead the panicked sheep inside, secure in the knowledge that it would come out the other side. Which it did. The sheep, by contrast, came out as lamb chops.

I figured it was time that we had a BBQ sauce label that did not gloss over the treachery of the pigs in question. (To my knowledge, there will not ever be a Judas Pig BBQ sauce available, although if anybody wants to license it...)

Prints in regular and jumbo are available for the BBQ lover, or just those who, like me, have questioned the motives of all those grinning pigs. They can be ordered for $10 and $20 from Red Wombat Studio at [link]

*Far as I'm concerned, it's ALL weird, and Memphis-style is the only true BBQ. I mostly keep this opinion to myself when out in public.

So I could eat a cannibal pig with this? Cool!
The evil pig looks delicious.
Trully, pigs are evil.
In hot sauce, remember that it is better to start out too mild than too hot. And if you cannot handle the heat or do not care for sauces, they don’t consider yourself as one of the chiliheads.
I, too, am always questioning those happy pigs that advertise BBQ joints...why do those sell-outs smile?! 0o

Glad to see that someone can finally put some truth in advertising! :D
And there you have the true marketing genius of Chick-Fil-A. Nobody's shocked when cows sell out chickens. OTOH, after all the chickens have done for them [link] you'd think they'd be grateful.

What?! Memphis-style is just too watery and thin. You need a sauce with body. Something that can stand up to the pork.

Anyway, absolutly wondeful label. :D I would buy this.
hahahaha great!! :)
