Hormel Foods’ Lloyd’s® barbeque brand is adding new ingenuity to the meat category after partnering with a two-time world barbeque sauce champion. Together with Pig Beach and its Mustard BBQ Sauce, Lloyd’s is debuting two new meaty products: Pecanwood Smoked Pulled Pork and Hardwood Smoked Chicken.
“Barbeque is all about bringing families and friends together,” said Eric Jacobson, Lloyd’s 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.”
Pig Beach Mustard BBQ is the winner of the 2014 and 2016 Memphis in May World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest, which has been recognized by USA Today as the “Most Prestigious Barbeque Cooking Contest.” The competition lasts four days and draws nearly 250 teams from around the world.
These prestigious accolades are but a few of the reasons why Lloyd’s partnership with Pig Beach is more than sweet—it’s set to bring the barbeque heat to the protein category.
“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.”
Shane McBride, Partner of Pig Beach, added, “We are really excited and passionate about what’s in that package going out to consumers. How cool is it that people throughout the country can try our award-winning Pig Beach BBQ Sauce?”
Available in a 16 oz, easy-to-peel entrée tray, Lloyd’s Pecanwood Smoked Pulled Pork and Hickory Hardwood Smoked Pulled Chicken with Pig Beach Mustard BBQ Sauce is available at retail nationwide.
