Chris got a nice spread in the Washington Post this morning including killer recipes for grilled peaches and maple-glazed salmon. My guess is he and his staff will be busier than a crew of one-armed paper hangers this morning just answering the phone and taking orders. Way to do Chris!

    Man, that is a nice article! Kinda tells it like is!!

    All of the DP people work hard to make some great rubs and they are seeing rewards for their hard work!

  • Well I have to say Chris's philosophy is true to form "We wanted to build a company on good karma and fun." Chris is one of the nicest people I have met and his rubs are second to none. Congrats on the article and the showing on Sunday.
    Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow is always Sunday.

    Thanks Wess. I was really happy with the article. I gotta say this about the Post....they really worked hard to get their facts right. I was hoping for a mention, but ended up with a nice page! Still kinda surreal right now.
    Cheers!

    Very cool!!!!!!

    I'd be hopping and a skipping right now. I'm excited for Chris. Tsunami Spin is one of my favorites too.

    I just sent the link to almost everyone in my email address book. Spreading the good news if you will.
