BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS COMING SOON!!!

 

Sunday, March 11, 2012

We had a great day at the Gautier Antique Fair today! It was awesome watching four "Picked Off" teams and their film crews running around The Old Place today. "Picked Off" is a new show on The History Channel, and is a spin-off of History Channel's "American Pickers". Two of the four teams stopped by the Daddy's BBQ booth today, trying to buy the vintage Coca-Cola sign that hung in Daddy's rib shack Bates Bar-b-Que in Jayess, Mississippi. It was an honor to tell 'em the sign wasn't for sale! Of course, Daddy probably would have sold it!

 

DADDY'S SMOKER FROM BATES BAR-B-QUE GETS A MAKEOVER!

 

 

We're happy to report that the original smoker that our late father, James R. Bates, used in the rib shack he built himself in rural Mississippi is getting another chance to smoke great 'Que for those who love all things Daddy's BBQ!

We've recently pulled the smoker out of the rib shack and it is being welded onto a cooking trailer. This smoker will be available for Daddy's BBQ catering and competitions soon!

THANKS FOR ANOTHER GREAT YEAR FOR DADDY'S BBQ!

We're grateful to all of our wonderful fans across the globe helping the Daddy's BBQ team have another successful year. We continue to make strides in gaining new customers across the United States and Canada. It's your word-of-mouth that helps us do this! Please keep telling your friends about Daddy's BBQ and share our posts on www.facebook.com/DaddysBBQFans and www.twitter.com/DaddysBBQFans!

 

Give a warm welcome to DADDY'S BBQ Girl Sarah! You'll find the Daddy's BBQ Girls at many of our upcoming events.

Relief for Myanmar Disaster Survivors

Our friends at www.Soles4Souls.org are among the first to respond to help the 100,000’s of thousands of people affected by Cyclone Nargis.

http://topics.edition.cnn.com/topics/myanmar

If you’re not already familiar with Soles4Souls, this international charity was formed in response to the Asian Tsunami. Over 750,000 pair of shoes were distributed in response to Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast. Thousands more have been helped following the Peru earthquake and California wildfires. The current needs of the people of Myanmar grow by the minute and have the potential to surpass the needs of previous responses.

Your donation will help ensure footwear that will allow the Myanmar people to protect their feet as they work to recover and rebuild their lives. Having personally witnessed the distribution of shoes by Soles4Souls following Hurricane Katrina, I know the positive impact and encouragement a pair of shoes can have to a person at their greatest time of need. These shoes will directly impact people who have lost everything.

For the cost of a nice dinner for two or a night at the movies, you can make a tremendous difference in the lives of the people of Myanmar today.

Please join us in making a donation to help send 25,000 boots and shoes to the Myanmar/Burma region. It’s easy to do and will take less than 5 minutes of your time.

Thanks in advance,

James Edward Bates
