April 2020 – Dizzy Pig is thrilled to announce that we have teamed up with BBQ Hall-of-Famer Ray “DrBBQ” Lampe to bring you new and exciting ways to use Dizzy Pig seasonings.

Dizzy Pig owner Chris Capell and DrBBQ are long-time friends, and the time is finally right for their paths to meet up. Here’s what Chris has to say about this new partnership. “We just landed Ray Lampe, DrBBQ, to be our spokesman and we couldn’t be more excited. I’ve known Ray for close to 20 years and he’s really familiar with our seasonings and our company. We’re just honored he wants to put his name behind Dizzy Pig. Ray’s the real deal. He tells it like it is and his accomplishments speak for themselves.”

DrBBQ says “I have been a fan and friend of the company for years and I’m a big fan of their products. I really love this company because it’s a family company, home-grown. Chris has built it from the ground up and doing it his way. They have 27 different products, all unique, all great, all done at their facility in Manassas, VA. They grind it, blend it, pack it, label it – they do everything in house and nobody else is doing that, which is really cool. No copycats – these are the ones that Chris dreams up somehow in his mind. He comes up with these ideas, does his homework, and has gotten really good over the years.”

Ray promises “there’s a lot of good stuff to come” so check back often!
