JACKSONVILLE, Ill., Oct. 3, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Rumors of a worldwide bacon shortage have been making headlines and nothing spells panic like the idea of a “bacon less” world. Well, Twyford BBQ and Catering is happy to report that it sees no signs of a pork shortage in its home state of Illinois and its celebrating National Pork month – whole hog.
The USDA’s recently-released numbers also point to no pork shortage. Its quarterly Hogs and Pigs’ supply report estimates for both breeding and market hogs were in line with the same report last year. As of September 1, the total inventory was reported at 67.5 million head, with 5.8 million breeding animals and 61.7 million market pigs.
“All this fuss over a bacon shortage is nothing but hype,” Randy Twyford, pitmaster and owner of Twyford BBQ and Catering, says. “We are huge supporters of the pork industry and plan to celebrate October Pork Month by honoring and supporting our pork producers’ commitment to producing safe, nutritious food as they promote animal well-being, and safeguard natural resources.”
October Pork Month reminds Americans that pork is a great product and producers have made a long-term commitment to responsible pork production.
“At Twyford BBQ and Catering, we could not live without pork and we don’t expect our clients to either,” Twyford says. “We are dedicated to the pork industry and to ensuring that its future is strong. We are also big proponents of the farm-to-table movement; our pork products are the freshest around.”
Twyford reports that a plan is also in the works, in the next few weeks, to open “TakeHomeTwyford;” carryout will be available at its world headquarters.
“So, rest assured, we’ll continue to support the pork industry through our commitment to our clients and the community,” Twyford says.

JACKSONVILLE, Ill., May 24, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — It’s truly rib ticklin’ news. A Jacksonville caterer – Twyford BBQ and Catering – is pleased to announce that it placed seventh in the rib category out of 121 teams that competed at the Memphis in May World Barbecue Championship.
And, it’s not the first time. After only two years of competing in this world championship barbecue event, Twyford BBQ and Catering placed in the top 10 both times.
“From what I’ve been told by others attending the event, this is unheard of,” Randy Twyford, pitmaster and owner of Twyford BBQ and Catering, says.
Three on-site judges determined the fate of the competitors and two of the judges gave Twyford’s ribs 10 out of 10. They commented that the ribs had just the right amount of smoke and flavor with the perfect amount of heat at the end. They reported that the sauce complemented the ribs, but did not overpower the pork.
The award-winning baby back ribs came from Wichita Packing in Chicago. Twyford says that they provide some of the best quality around.
“We used the same sauce on these award-winning ribs, that we use and sell in our shop and online,” Twyford says. “So, you see, all of our customers – old and new – can be grand champions too. It’s Illinois barbecue at its best.”
The sauces come in two flavors – mild and sassy – and have no artificial preservatives, colors or flavorings.
“Next time, we’re going for the world championship,” Twyford says. “We want to make Illinois proud; stay tuned.”
