October has been a Blast!

And we've only just begun!  This past weekend, in spite of the fact that we started out with a little bit of rain, FunniBonz managed to make appearances at four separate venues.

On Saturday morning, we made our usual stop at the West Windsor Farmer's Market.  It was rainy but a few dedicated fresh food lovers braved the weather and helped make our morning. 

We also joined in on the celebration at the Hightstown Hometown Harvest Festival where we met some of the nicest residents and vendors ever.  (Much love to Gina from the Windsor Seafood Market, the girls from Muscle Maker Grill in East Windsor and the ministers from Out of the Pit BBQ!) The weather cleared up nicely and the residents started coming out to taste the sauce and take home some jars.

We rounded out our Saturday at Mercer County Park's Burger Mania where local businesses sold their own versions of the famous hamburger slider in competiton with one another.  Jeff Johnson of Hamilton's Carolina BBQ was the ultimate winner.

FunniBonz decided to opt out of the contest and serve something different.  We offered FunniBonz Sloppy Joe and Pulled Pork slider platters instead.  The pulled pork was slow roasted for nine hours, coated in FunniBonz Barbeque sauce and then topped with fresh home made cole slaw.  Our line didn't end until the evening was over and all bellies were full. A HUGE shout out to McCaffrey's of West Windsor for all of their help and support at the event.  We couldn't have done it without them!

Check out this article about Burger Mania from the Sunday Trenton Times.

On Sunday Jim made an appearance at the ShopRite of Mount Laurel at Union Mill Road where he sampled more of his now-famous pulled pork and cole slaw.

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend.  Thank you so much to all of our Customers, Fans and Friends who continually support us, and recognize that this sauce can be used all year 'round, even when it isn't "grill season" anymore.

Special thanks to the Lisa Sinatra Ward and her family for creating fans as far away as Arizona and to Robbin Kemp Dean for bringing some jars back to South Carolina!  We love and appreciate you!!
