Across the nation, from the Carolinas to the California coast, barbecue has never been bigger. This spring, Farm Rich joins the BBQ craze with the debut of Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ, launching just in time for National Barbecue Month which kicks off May 1. Hickory smoked for hours, but ready in minutes, the Smokehouse BBQ meals have no artificial ingredients and high-quality pork, beef and chicken – packing a protein punch. The five new Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ meal varieties include:

  • Pulled Pork BBQ - hand-pulled pork in a sweet and spicy sauce
  • Pulled Beef Brisket - hand-pulled beef in a sweet and smoky sauce
  • Pulled Chicken BBQ - hickory smoked chicken breast in an applewood BBQ sauce
  • Dry Rub Smoked Chicken - hickory smoked chicken with a dry rub
  • Dry Rub Smoked Pork - hickory smoked,  hand-pulled pork with dry rub

Priced from $6.99 to $8.99, Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ products are available in the frozen food section in select Walmart stores as well as Meijer and Ingles locations. For more information, visit

Always a staple in the South, acclaimed barbecue restaurants have popped up everywhere from Brooklyn, N.Y, to Portland, Ore., firmly establishing barbecue as one of America's favorite passions. According to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, shipments of grills and smokers reached nearly 14 million in 2013 and 80 percent of North American households today own a grill or smoker. 

"People may not always have time in their busy weeks to slow-cook barbecue, but now they can enjoy BBQ that's been hickory smoked for hours in no time at all," said Shannon Gilreath, senior marketing manager for Farm Rich. "Our Smokehouse BBQ products add a center-plate meal option to our popular lineup of frozen snacks, sides and appetizers which families enjoy for their quality ingredients, great taste and convenience."

To celebrate National Barbecue Month this May, select fans can win a year's worth of all the smokin' hot Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ they can handle. Fans can tweet @FarmRichSnacks with the reason they want Farm Rich Smokehouse on their table, and include the hashtag #DoYouQ? for a chance to win.
