Chasing BBQ: 76 BBQ Joints in 38 Days
Denver, CO, August 22, 2015 --( Savory Spice Shop, the leader in fresh-ground spices and handcrafted seasonings, is sending its Founder and CEO Mike Johnston on a national road trip around the United States "chasing" the best BBQ in the country.

“Savory Spice Shop has been around for over ten years, and since the beginning, we have been known for our signature grilling and BBQ seasonings,” said Mike Johnston, Savory Spice Shop founder. “As we strive to be a progressive company that seeks out the best flavors, we feel an obligation to our loyal customers to continue our tradition as the BBQ seasoning experts. And, this road trip will personally fulfill a couple items on my bucket list!”

Mike drew his inspiration from Johnny Fugitt, who visited 365 BBQ restaurants in one year. Forming a lengthy wish list of his own, and adhering to certain time constraints—Mike’s ultimate chase for BBQ was brought to life—76 BBQ joints, 38 days.

“My chase will have me driving more than 5,000 miles through 14 states visiting each of the 7 recognized regions of American barbecue: Central Texas, East Texas, Memphis, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Kansas City (on both the Missouri and Kansas sides).
