Hydro Family Heads for National Cable TV Broadcast on QVC

U-6's Charlie Grooms to appear on QVC. Long-time team manager of the U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto, Charlie Grooms and his wife Nancy are headed for the big city lights of Philadelphia with their Ladder 51 Flame Broiled Chicken Wings.

The Grooms’ are scheduled to appear on QVC, Monday Oct. 1 at 5:00pm eastern on a special one hour football tailgate show and will be selling their flame broiled wings. “We are scheduled to appear in at least one 15 minute schedule during the hour show,” Charlie Grooms said. “Things are really crazy good right now,” he said.

The Ladder 51 Flame Broiled Wings will be show cased in packages that include 6 pounds of wings (3- 2 lb bags) fully cooked ready-to-heat and serve. They also come with six spicy BBQ sauce packets, but as many on the hydroplane circuit have tasted, they are also great with no sauce at all.

Thanks Owen Blauman for the info

Here's a link to the "wings" page on QVC and a description of Charlie's product:

"Excite your taste buds with these all-natural jumbo chicken wings. Each is fully cooked and flame-broiled so they're ready to heat and eat for dinner, the big game, or a late-night snack. The spicy sauce adds a lip-smacking kick. From Ladder 51. Excite your taste buds with these all-natural jumbo chicken wings.
