As a huge fan of Jimmy Kimmel and Howard Stern, seeing the growing success of the Jimmy Kimmel is just a clear indication of how hard this guy works for it. This past week, Jimmy Kimmel and crew were in Austin and they visited some of the best in Austin BBQ, well at least the newer BBQ Joints on the scene. Here is a funny video of their BBQ tour. Having done the Austin BBQ Tour last year, can totally appreciate the work it takes to eat that much BBQ in one day!
It was only a year ago when I asked Ryan Chester, the genius behind The Rub Co whether he had any new products in the pipeline and he said, maybe a sauce this year. Well we are really excited to announce that we are one of the very few retailers to have The Rub Co. Southern Smoke BBQ Sauce and The Rub Co. Tropical Heat BBQ Sauce in stock and for sale! Both are on special for $6.99 and BBQ Pro Shop is one of the first to be selling these on line.
The Rub Company Southern Smoke BBQ sauce was created for competition pitmasters to use without having to do a lot of customizations and modifications. Southern Smoke BBQ sauce balances, sweet, heat, and tang which is meant to be applied directly to the meat, straight out of the bottle!
The Rub Company Tropical Heat BBQ Sauce was created to be different. Ryan describes it as a
sauce that will take your taste buds on a trip from Asia to the Caribbean. The flavor profile of Tropical Heat takes the BBQ Sauce to a different level, combining a unique blend of sweet chili’s from Asia, pineapple from Hawaii, and enhanced spices from Jamaica to Barbados. Tropical Heat packs a flavor explosion that is guaranteed to make your lips smack! Excellent on Chicken and pork.
A while back we reported seeing a Myron Mixon smoker with his patented Waterpan Technology cooking like crazy at a competition we participated in. Since then, our blog has gotten plenty of comments about where you can buy his Smokers. Well after doing some digging, it looks like you can buy a Myron Mixon Smoker at his web site! That is correct, Myron Mixon Smokers now gives you all the lowdown on the technology behind the world championship “King of BBQ” They now have three levels you can buy, Backyard, one for Competition and Catering and one for Commercial cooking which is a rotisserie style type cooker, all three look very impressive.
Everyone that has taken Myron’s Class and we are big believers in the water pan, just cannot beat the moisture that it imparts onto the meat and creating a steaming effect that really works. Great to see a man grow his success to new levels. Way to go Myron!
Michael Gebert is one of our favorites when it comes to documenting BBQ. He is especially near and dear to us, since he hails from Chicago. His blog Aptly named Sky Full Of Bacon, highlights and documents his food adventures and writes for a number of publications. Sharing this video with you that came as a result of his embedding himself with Mike Mills at the Praise The Lard BBQ Competition, which is celebrating it’s 25th Anniversary this year. Enjoy the sights and sounds of what it is like to be at a BBQ competition. We have been down to Murphysboro, IL twice, have met so many great folks and have judged the KCBS contest in the past. If you ever want to experience something really special, this is one not to miss!
Enjoy more of Michael’s video’s at his Sky Full of Bacon Vimeo Site!
BBQ Pro Shop has been carrying Ubon’s BBQ Sauce since it was bottled and mass distributed a couple of years back. We first had Ubon’s BBQ at the Big Apple BBQ Block Party in NYC a few years back, and the pulled pork was legit! So when we got a chance to carry Ubon’s BBQ Sauce we jumped at the opportunity. Here is a great video that tells the story. This video comes from a great new BBQ show. The Travel Channel picked up BBQ Crawl, a great series from Danielle Bennett Dimovski aka @divaQ which is about as real a host as you can find when it comes to fun, energy and bringing the BBQ love! Enjoy!
