Blind Pig BBQ
http://www.blindpigbbq.net/

It all started for Tom Bera in August 2005 with a phone call from his friend Steve from the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame. He asked Tom to help cook ribs at a competition charity event run by Garry Maddox at Citizen’s Bank Park – Tom agreed. This was the first time Tom ever cooked “real” BBQ. Steve and Tom used two $30 Brinkman smokers and finished in the top 5!  They upgraded their equipment to a couple of Weber Smoky Mountains and a Big Green Egg smoker, then planned their KCBS debut in 2006.

 Their first competition was at “BBQ on the Farm” in Bristol, PA. They finished 8th in ribs and dead last in brisket and had a great time. They also gained a new member to the team, Jack Rhubright, who Tom still cooks with today. Mid-way through their 2006 season Jack and Tom officially changed their team name to Philly Blind Pig BBQ.

 The origin of the name “Blind Pig” stems from the prohibition days in Chicago. A “Blind Pig” was an establishment that illegally provided alcoholic beverages. The saloonkeeper would charge customers to see an attraction (such as an animal), and provide a “complimentary” alcoholic beverage, thus circumventing the law.

Creating artwork is a practice through which one offers their entire being to the mystery of creativity.  When the brush hits the canvas, it’s as if time stops and the artist is invited to sway harmoniously with the universe.  Each brush stoke is layered upon the next to create an object that reminds us of our true boundless nature.

My mission is to continually open to the secrets of life with a brush in-hand. I hope to create art that wakes the viewer to unexpected states of beautiful awareness. My mission is to continually open to the secrets of life with a brush in-hand.  Email John at visionsbyjohn@gmail.com
