The Makers of Lloyd’s Barbeque Partner With 2-Time World Barbeque Champions to Launch Hardwood Smoked Pulled Meats Made with Pig Beach Mustard BBQ Sauce

AUSTIN, Minn. — The makers of Lloyd’s® barbeque products, the No. 1 selling heat and serve barbeque in America, announced today its pecanwood smoked pulled pork and hardwood smoked chicken made with 2-time world barbeque sauce champion Pig Beach Mustard BBQ Sauce.

Winner of the 2014 and 2016 Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, Pig Beach Mustard BBQ Sauce is a perfect match for Lloyd’s® lightly seasoned hardwood smoked pulled meats. Recognized by USA Today as the “Most Prestigious Barbecue Contest,” the Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest is a four-day competition held in Memphis, Tenn., that draws nearly 250 teams competing from around the world.

“Barbeque is all about bringing families and friends together,” said Eric Jacobson, Lloyd’s® barbeque brand manager. “Our new hardwood smoked pulled meats made with Pig Beach Mustard BBQ Sauce are perfect for any backyard barbeque or hectic weeknight meal while bringing delicious and smoky competition-style authenticity to your plate.”

“The Lloyd’s® brand offers a meat that is moist, tender, flavorful and perfectly smoked and is arguably better than a lot of barbeque that I’ve eaten at restaurants,” said Matt Abdoo, partner of Pig Beach. “To pair our sauce with it is in incredible honor.”

“We are really excited and passionate about what’s in that package going out to consumers,” added Shane McBride, partner of Pig Beach. “How cool is it that people throughout the country can try our award-winning Pig Beach BBQ Sauce?”

Available in a 16-ounce easy-to-peel entrée tray, Lloyd’s® Pecanwood Smoked Pulled Pork and Hickory Hardwood Smoked Pulled Chicken with Pig Beach Mustard BBQ Sauce (MSRP $5.99-7.99) can be found at select retailers nationwide.
