Vance's Shredded BBQ Chicken and Spice Rub

Fabulous at 81! On September 24th, Mrs. G celebrated 81 years in business with a customer appreciation event that included the Battle of the Blue pulled pork cook-off with representatives from our local police departments. Lawrence Township competed against Trenton, with NJ 101.5 radio host Bill Spadea leading the panel of judges in a tasting that was a close call! Both recipes wow’d the judges, but it was Trenton who was named champion in our inaugural event.
