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!

This is almost a weekly meal in our house. It’s a healthy meal that everyone eats and doesn’t take too long to cook. After you’ve made it once, you’ll never purchase a grocery store rotisserie again! The Grill Friends Porcelain Chicken Sitter Stand heats up and gives way to a moist tender chicken on the inside and yummy crispy skin on the outside.
1 4-5 pound roasting chicken, preferably Amish or Kosher or Organic
3 tablespoons of favorite dry spice rub recipe, divided
Kosher salt and freshly-ground pepper
Liquid to fill Chicken Sitter; water, apple juice, beer, white wine
Grilling Method: Indirect/Medium Heat
Remove neck and giblets and pat dry chicken with paper towels.
Brush chicken all over with oil and season with 2 tablespoons dry rub or simply salt and pepper. Set aside.
Fill Chicken Sitter about ¾ of the way full with any liquid, beer, water, apple juice, white time. Also sprinkle one tablespoon of dry rub inside the Chicken Sitter as well. Place Chicken Sitter in center of cooking grate and move legs apart so the body cavity slides over the top of the Chicken Sitter. The chicken will appear to be “sitting” on the grate.
Cook chicken for 1 – 1½ hours or until the internal temperature registers 165ºF in the breast area and 180ºF in the thigh. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.
Note: When removing from grate, be careful not to spill contents of Chicken Sitter, as it will be very hot. Use a pair of locking tongs and grab the bottom of the beer can and place on a platter or cutting board to cool.

Ravens Bark BBQ Sauce was born from a corporate client who was impressed with a homemade BBQ sauce they tasted while having dinner with the Ravens Bark family and asked them to develop it for his customers. This request and a family recipe for homemade sauce became the inspiration for the original flavor, The General. We craft our sauce in small batches, to control quality and insure freshness. You can bet your boots that every bottle is fresh, balanced to perfection and will make you the neighborhood pit master. HFCS Free.

Love a great big juicy delicious home-grilled burger? Try a grilled Texasburger slathered with RavensBark BBQ Sauce – The Hickory.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Grill Time: 20 minutes
6 (6-ounce) burger patties
salt & freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
1 to 1-1/2 cups RavensBark BBQ Sauce – The Hickory
12-15 slices yellow onion
6 good quality burger buns
Heat a grill to medium hot. Pour 1 cup of the RavensBark BBQ Sauce – The Hickory in a baking dish and place to the side. Season burger patties with salt & pepper. Place the onion slices around the perimeter of the grill surface turning once during the cook process. Grill the burgers to desired degree of doneness. With about 3-4 minutes before the burgers are done, place the burger patties in the baking dish with sauce, turning to coat both sides well and return to the grill to caramelize the sauce. Open the buns and paint the insides with melted butter. Place buns, buttered sides down, on the grill rack; grill buns just long enough to lightly brown, with edges slightly crisp. Place a burger on each bun and pour some of RavensBark BBQ Sauce – The Hickory on top and layer on grilled onion slices. Serves 6
