On the Que-Tee

York barbecue meister Dennis M. Sherman last month won two gold medals and other awards for his DennyMike’s ’Cue Stuff product line at the 18th Annual National Barbecue Association Conference & Expo in Austin, Texas. He landed gold medals for his DennyMike’s “Pixie Dust” rub (category: “Barbecue Dry Rub/Seasonings: Southwest”) and “Chick Magnet” rub (category: “Barbecue Dry Rub/Seasonings: All-Purpose”).

“A highlight of this year’s competition was the strong showing from Maine,” noted Becky Streuter, a member of the association’s board of directors. “Here you have this dyed-in-the-wool Mainer who came down here to compete in the heart of Texas barbecue country — and walks away with so many top awards!”

New products in the works include a new Key West Key Lime Hot Sauce, Key West Shrimp Dust Rub and Spicy Barbecue Pickles. For more information, visit dennymikes.com.
