Barbecue Swag Bag

One of the fastest-growing parts of Zavala's Barbecue's distribution business is Backyard BBQ in a Box, a subscription service that sends out a combination of products like rubs, sauces, and recipes from the Texas Monthly Top 50 pitmasters each year.

During the first year he was in business, Joe Zavala, owner of Zavala’s Barbecue in Dallas, made the list of Texas Monthly’s Top 50 barbecue places in the state. That’s no small feat in a state that prizes its pitmasters. The honor wasn’t lost on Zavala, who chose to go all in on the experience and start a service that shares the flavors from the Top 50 with people all over the country—and even the world. BBQ Distro is Zavala’s barbecue distribution hub, anchored by a brick-and-mortar shop and free online mini lessons from Texas’ barbecue savants.

One of the fastest-growing parts of the distribution business is Backyard BBQ in a Box, a subscription service that sends out a combination of products like rubs, sauces, and recipes from the Texas Monthly Top 50 pitmasters each year. While the box was originally intended for hard-core barbecue fans, meeting planners can use the service to cook up the perfect Texas-themed swag bag addition. 

Buy the box for your event’s current month or pack a bottle of Zavala’s sauce along with a voucher for a three-, six-, or 12-month subscription to the barbecue boxes. Along with a variety of tangy treats, attendees will get members-only access to extended versions of the barbecue lessons, live Q&A sessions with the masters, and a few bonus products along the way. Give attendees a taste of Texas they can take home and enjoy long after the event has ended. bbqdistro.com
