Like Real Barbecue itself, True ‘Cue is a labor of love.  The costs of operating True ‘Cue – printing materials for certifications, promoting the website, web hosting, driving throughout the state to certify restaurants, etc. – are borne by the site’s co-founders.  If you’d like to contribute to the cause, buy some merchandise from the True ‘Cue store by clicking on ZAZZLE. The prices are a bit high because, well, that’s how Zazzle makes money, so keep your eyes open for sales or see the latest coupons at

Alternatively, if low and slow high fashion ain’t your thing, just drop us a line at and we’ll be glad to arrange to take your money in a completely non-tax deductible way.  Seriously, contributions are welcome and will be invested in furthering the Campaign for Real Barbecue.
