American Classifieds to Distribute The Barbecue Rag

Once again our friends at the largest free classifieds newspaper in the region, American Classifieds, are partnering with the Tri-State BBQ Festival to distribute our pre-event publication in advance of the festival. Several weeks before the Tri-State BBQ Festival, a tabloid-sized newspaper called The Barbecue Rag is put out across several counties and states. The Barbecue Rag features information on the annual barbecue festival held the 2nd weekend of April, and also contains an entertainment schedule, map of the venue, and times of various demonstrations and sampling.

American Classifieds is a great partner for helping us put The Barbecue Rag into the hands of thousands of people, because that’s what they do every week! They distribute thousands of newspapers throughout the southeastern Alabama region. If you haven’t gotten a copy of American Classifieds recently, take a moment to check them out. There are some great deals in there, and of course, it’s FREE to get a copy! Many people who have been reading American Classifieds for years commonly refer to the paper as the Thrifty Nickel (as that was its name previously).

Look for The Barbecue Rag on shelves the last part of March and hang on to your copy to use as a guide April 10 and 11 at the Tri-State BBQ Festival.
