So Dean called me a few days ago and asked me how is awesome BBQ Sauce was selling and I told him that we needed to get the word out so I asked him for the Top % Unique uses of Dean’s STS – Smokin’ Texas Barbecue Sauce cooking sauce. Below is a collection of some of the comments he has gotten from his biggest fans on how they are spicing up their recipes.
Here are the Top 5 uses on some unique uses of Dean’s STS – Smokin’ Texas Barbecue Sauce as mentioned by current fans.
1. Vegetable Cooking Broth – Use 1 part sauce mixed with 1 part water and slowly simmer favorite vegetables as normal.
Compliments of V. Mills, resident of “Serenity”
2. Zesty Meatloaf – Substitute Dean’s STS in place of the ketchup when called for in your favorite meatloaf recipe.
- Compliments of D. McCollough, Atlanta, GA
3. Tangier Homemade Pizza – Mix in “a good portion” of Dean’s STS when creating the marinara sauce to be spread on pizza dough before baking.
- Compliments of G. Rygert, Marietta, GA
4. Ketchup Replacement – This stuff is the ultimate replacement for Ketchup, and is just awesome on burgers. Tangy flavor with just a kiss of heat.
5. Lechón baboy is just better - Dean’s spouse hails from the island nation, Philippines. One of her homeland’s treasured national foods is known at Lechón baboy, a spit-roasted whole hog, fired long and slow in a time honored tradition that results in supernaturally crisp teak-colored skin, yet fall-off-the-bone moist meat entrapped within the skin. We’ve had the local (there’s only one here in the Atlanta area we know of) lechón maker add Dean’s STS to the usual host of Asian spices that the hog is stuffed with before cooking, resulting in quite unique flavor combinations.
Dean’s STS – Smokin’ Texas Barbecue Sauce all natural is a deliberate antithesis of the stereotypical sweet-n-syrupy BBQ sauces found in the major retailers. Not a “boutique” sauce but we can tell you that Dean’s Smokin’ Texas BBQ Sauce is not the typical sauce found at your local grocer.

Having just sold out of Rooftop BBQ Sauce, we called to re-order and found out that Green Mountain Grills has added it to their line up of sauces and rubs. The best blog post I could find on this which tells the story:
Green Mountain Grills Pitmaster BBQ Sauce
Last week I alluded to a coming announcement about Rooftop BBQ Sauce. Andy announced just yesterday on the Whiskey Bent Radio Show that team’s long time sponsor, Green Mountain Grills, is producing the Rooftop BBQ sauce; repackaged, rebranded and with an improved formula: Pitmaster BBQ Sauce.
Starting next week it will be shipping out nationwide to all GMG stores and beyond. While the team will still be selling the sauce at their events, GMG will be the sole distributor and they will be making it much more available and at a more inexpensive price at $5.99 a bottle. It has also been repackaged in a plastic bottle with a new label and has been thinned out with the addition of apple juice.
Everyone we talk to seems to have an opinion on Andy’s decision to do this, but as I may be the only one who truly knows how much Andy works while running a side business—or two— in addition to a full time job. He never stops. Now, taking and shipping sauce orders has been lifted off his shoulders and he can focus on what he truly loves: cooking amazing barbeque.
Big thanks to Samantha Allen for her beautiful blog and having some information on this exciting announcement!

BBQ Pro Shop is very excited to announce our alliance with Farm2Market foods, an Arizona-based company that creates organic sauces, condiments and spice blends that pay homage to the world’s favorite foods, the regions that celebrate them and the planet that provides the ingredients. They set out with a goal; to re-create regional varieties of popular condiments using only certified-organic ingredients and sustainable practices. They believe that people deserve to eat better and want to make sure they do.
Farm2Market Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce with organic fire-roasted tomatoes (not ketchup or tomato paste). It’s far more expensive than the alternatives but worth it. They are opposed to using liquid smoke or artificial smoke but they do buy sea salts, peppercorns, paprika and chilies that are smoked over alder, oak, mesquite, hickory and other woods.
Michael Capuano and Ashley Sinclair, co-founders of Farm2Market Foods, first products were an organic BBQ sauce & dry rub. Why BBQ? They felt there were not a lot of organic, gluten-free and vegan options available. Although barbecuing doesn’t necessarily bring “healthy eating” to mind, there are plenty of folks who love to cook outdoors and have the desire to eat better.
Farm2Market Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce answered their personal challenge to re-create one of America’s favorite condiments sans food additives, flavor enhancers (like MSG), artificial sweeteners (like aspartame and high-fructose corn syrup), contaminants (like mercury), preservatives (like sodium nitrate) or anything that has been exposed to pesticides or other harmful chemicals. Michael and Ashley also avoided using any ingredients containing gluten or animal products.
The birth of Farm2Market Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce
Living in the Sonoran Desert, Michael Capuano and Ashley Sinclair decided to use local flavors like Raw Blue Agave, smoky southwestern chilies, locally-grown coffee and cocoa to create a BBQ region all their own. Once that was accomplished, they wanted to share it with the world. Their first creation, Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce received a 5/5 Star Review from bbqsaucereviews.com and is currently available online here!
In fact, their products received so much positive attention that they have decided to develop an entire family of Sonoran Style products. More products, coming soon!
