The Smoked Pork Belly Pastrami Sandwich will be served on a plate a la carte for $7.50 or with a bag of chips for $9. In addition, the RiverDogs will donate a portion of the proceeds from the smoked item to the Lowcountry Food Bank. Chef Siegel will be serving the tasty treat to fans for the RiverDogs game against the Kannapolis Intimidators which is scheduled to begin Sunday at 5:05 pm at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park.

“This promotion has been well received during our first seven Sunday home games this season, and we’re happy to welcome Chef Siegel from Home Team BBQ to the park this weekend,” said RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols. “Chef Siegel’s creation of the Smoked Pork Belly Pastrami Sandwich sounds delicious, and to be able to help raise money for the Lowcountry Food Bank at the same time is fantastic.”
