I know, I know, it has been ages since I have blogged so why I am doing it now? Well then, sit back, get comfy and I will tell you why.
Have you ever heard of Cripple Creek Barbeque? No? Allow me to tell you all about them and their awesomeness.
Cripple Creek Barbeque is a growing BBQ company with not only an amazing flavor and texture, but also contains no high fructose corn syrup. CCB's goal is to be able to help chefs and families alike, create tasty dishes without all the added sugar, artificial flavorings and other nastiness that is just not needed :)
CCB recently started a fund over at Kickstarter.com to raise some much needed mula to grow their business and has allowed 4 very talented artists to design brand new, kick ass labels for their sauces! (yours truly was chosen as one of those artists. *fist bump*)
These limited edition bottles are ONLY available through this special Kickstarter pledge. The awesome thing about Kickstarter is that you get to help out an amazing company AND get great goodies for doing it! Can you say REWARDS baby?! You can donate as little as $5, but of course, the more you donate, the better the goodies you can get! (Um, CHRISTMAS pressies anyone?) Also, you don't pay a single cent until December, and that is ONLY if the goal is reached! It is a win-win any way you look at it!
Here are the pledge/rewards levels :)
$5 or more: get a personal thank you and a mention on the official CCB website, and the CCB Facebook page
$20 or more: all of the awesomeness above PLUS a personal recipe created by the man himself, Chef John Lynch, developed to your personal tastes! YUM!
$50 or more: the delicious gift set that includes 2 sauces, a yummy spice rub, a basting brush AND menu ideas! (this makes the PERFECT gift and I should know...I purchased some of this yumminess last year for all of the men in the family! They went NUTS!)
$85 or more: *THIS IS THE SPECIAL ONE FOLKS!!!* 4, count them, *4* bottles of the delish CCB BBQ sauce in the brand new, revamped super labels!!!! Each flavor has a brand spankin' new label created by some of the greatest artists on the web! You get the Original CCB BBQ sauce with a super snazzy label created by none other than artist Tricia Rennea Wilson of Trillustrations.com, the spicey Chipotle sauce featuring an uber urban street smart design by designer Dean T. Hamilton of Ricaso.com, the yummy Caramelized Onion sauce all dressed up in the stylish and savvy design created by the brilliant Debbie Pruess of TheSpottedOlive.com and of course, every vampire's worst nightmare....Cripple Creek Barbeque's very own "Garlic" BBQ sauce, all dressed up and ready for your dinner table in the brand new design whipped up by ME in all of its gothy glory :) (Don't go inviting a Cullen over for dinner. Just sayin'.) Did I mention there are only 12 sets of these available and only 10 left as of right now? They are going quick. Better get yours today.
$100 or more: the thank you, the mention, the personal recipe, the gift set, AND a super cute CCB tee shirt for you to sport around town! Awesome I tell ya...awesome.
