Series 2: Shark Tank

Ep. 150 - Heath Hall - Pork Barrel BBQ

Their journey began in early 2006 during a heated budget debate in the United States Senate. They were two fatigued Senate staffers working late into the night discussing the late night dinner options on Capitol Hill. While they ordered pizza we dreamed of a delicious plate of smoked meat from one of the numerous legendary BBQ joints like they used to get back home in Missouri and wished one of these joints would open in Washington, D.C.

At the same time they were dreaming of ribs and brisket, Senators had engaged in a debate over the merits of earmarks, which are better known in Washington as pork barrel spending projects. At that very moment their dinner conversation merged with the debate over pork barrel spending and an idea suddenly popped into their heads and the foundation was laid for what would become Pork Barrel BBQ.

"I think Barbara liked how we handled ourselves in the tank. When she decide to invest in our business it wasn't just because we have a great product. She knew she wanted to work with us and we couldn't be happier to have Barbara on our team."
Heath believes Barbara invested in them as much as she did their product
