Farm2Market Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce

Farm2Market Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce

Sonoran BBQ Sauce is organic, gluten-free and vegan!

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!

Meat Mitch HFCS Free BBQ Sauce

Meat Mitch is a BBQ Competitor and they have the sauces to prove it. We have just added Meat Mitch Whomp! BBQ Sauce and Meat Mitch Naked Whomp! BBQ Sauce to the BBQ Pro Shop and as per usual, I cannot truly review them, but we can provide you with some background on what our thoughts are and why we felt it our duty to carry these new sauces. There is a great review at Grilling With Rich that we would highly recommend you check out. At 23.5 Ozs per bottle these are great sauces at a really great value.

Meat Mitch Whomp! Competition BBQ Sauce

Meat Mitch Whomp! Competition BBQ Sauce Contains Vanilla, A Unique Flavor Profile for sure!

Meat Mitch Whomp! BBQ Sauce

This sauce is all about the sweet and spice, it is a Kansas City Style through and through. It is a sauce that is great on just about everything. Meat Mitch Whomp! Competition BBQ Sauce is sweet, with a combination of brown sugar and ketchup as the primary ingredients, with a spicy kick to it. The vanilla extract is somewhat the secret to this and not what you would normally find in barbecue sauce. When we tasted it, you can recognize a very subtle, sweet vanilla flavor that comes along with the spice kick. As a competition sauce we have a lot of hopes for it as it will definitely raise some eyebrows. This is the one to get if you like a little heat on the tongue, and the flavor profile is something that will differentiates this from other KC style sauces we have tried.

Meat Mitch Naked Whomp!

Meat Mitch Naked Whomp! is 100% HFCS Free and All Natural!

Meat Mitch Naked Whomp! BBQ Sauce

This one was a great find, we are always looking for sauces and rubs that are All Natural. We find them to be a welcome change and have a unique flavor that only comes from less chemicals and more goodness. If you have someone in your family or you yourself has food allergies this is the sauce you should try! Meat Mitch Naked Whomp! BBQ Sauce  is a refreshing new product to see in the world of BBQ Sauce. It is a truly ALL Natural High Fructose Corn Syrup Free or HFCS Free and 100% Gluten Free. Mitch puts it well on the label “No Fruc’n corn syrup” which is the first of it’s kind at BBQ Pro Shop. This the sweet and lovable brother of the Meat Mitch Whomp! BBQ Sauce is all about sweetness and natural goodness. The story behind this is that a local store decided to ban HFCS from it’s shelves and Mitch rose to the occasion. He made the decision to create a barbecue sauce that they would be able to carry and got his sauce back on the shelves.

Draper’s BBQ Smokin Sauce and A.P. Rub Reviews Are In!

 

A.P. Drapers Rub has earned some high praise from some well respected bloggers.

Often times I review products on the blog that I carry, but it has occurred to me that this can be considered a little self-serving and at the end of the day, probably is not the best way to give these great suppliers and partners their due. Well Shane Draper has been doing a rock star job of promoting his products and getting samples out to the various bloggers that matter in the world of sauce, rub, BBQ and Grilling. So below are snippets of what the bloggers are saying and links to their full posts. You can buy it at BBQ Pro Shop, Draper’s BBQ A.P. Rub and Draper’s BBQ Smokin’ Sauce.

 

Review of Draper’s BBQ Smokin Sauce and All Purpose Rub on Ribs

From Hot Sauce Daily, thy do an incredible job of photographing the rub and the sauce and I really think that this is a great review of both products. Really did it some justice. My Favorite quote is from Marilyn who gave it 5 Stars!

They didn’t set out to be any of those regional sauces – they set out to make the best sauce they could make. I don’t think they need to change anything. They met their goal – this is a great BBQ sauce. It’s one of the best BBQ sauces I’ve ever had.

Review – Draper’s BBQ Smokin’ Sauce and All Purpose Rub

Scott Roberts is one of the best bloggers out there when it comes to reviewing sauces and rubs, he is often times on the BBQ Central Radio show and well-respected among the BBQ community. His review is very through and gets into a detailed review. I especially like how his review includes texture and close-up shots of the rub itself. This is what I found to be most unique about Drapers.

My verdict? The sauce is a must-have. If your food dollar can’t stretch that far, I would suggest to opt for only that. However, if you have a few extra bucks to splurge, go ahead and grab a bottle of the A.P. Rub as virtually deficiencies melt away as it combines with the Smokin’ Sauce.

Draper’s BBQ – Sauce and Rub Review

Kevin’s BBQ Joints is the premier on-line resource for all things BBQ, he does a great job of getting together all sorts of great reviews on what else, BBQ Joints. He does most of the BBQ Joint reviews himself and occasionally has a guest review as well. You can search for BBQ joints by you and also check out his reviews of Rubs and Sauces. He did an excellent review that includes a lot of history of Draper’s BBQ A.P. Rub and Draper’s A.P. Rub.

Highlights of his comments on the A.P. Rub and BBQ Smokin’ Sauce:

I show the rub first as my father-in-law immediately used it on steaks the first day I had it and since then he’s used it on everything from roasts to chicken. He has told me on more than one occasion that this is the best rub he’s every used. I tend to agree it’s among the top I’ve ever used as it really enhances the flavor of meat instead of altering it to taste just like rub.

On to the sauce: I’d give it a 3 1/2 to 4 out of 5 stars (haven’t given any sauce a 5 yet) and would definitely be a sauce I’d purchase in the future.

Review: Draper’s BBQ Sauce & Rub

Add Paddio Daddio BBQ to the mix of bloggers who have reviewed Drapers. He did a really in depth and straight to the point review of both the sauce and the rub. So add this one to the list of BBQ bloggers who are loving Draper’s BBQ A.P. Rub and Draper’s A.P. Rub.

If you are looking to for a sauce and/or rub that will add a new and unique dimension to your barbecue, you really can’t go wrong with Draper’s. It’s good stuff, indeed.

 

Review of Draper’s BBQ DBQ Rub & Smokin Sauce – A Taste of Kentucky

The latest review of the sauce comes from Wilfred Reinke aka Oshawa Ogre’s blog called Views, News & BBQ’s. He can be found on Twitter and Facebook and he always does a great job of talking about grilling and BBQ in a way that is very basic yet to the point. He did a great job reviewing the sauce and I really like his thoughts and the way that he uses rub on french fries! Click the link above and check out his full review, great pictures of the rub and sauce! We much appreciate the shout out on the blog too!

These ribs were fantastic! rivals anything that I ate at various RibFests last summer, DBQ Smokin’ Sauce enhanced the ribs both by the sauce that was slathered on during the last 10 minutes of the cook and when I added a bit more on top. Wow! I can see what Shane means when he put on the label of every bottle of Rub and Sauce ” Three generations of pride and flavour in a bottle”

Drapers BBQ Sauce and Rub – Wednesday BBQ Sauce Review

Grilling With Rich takes the time to review this from a grilling perspective and tried it on some wings which is a switch from how it was reviewed by others, so adding this to the mix was helpful.

Drapers BBQ in-bodies some of the heart and soul of barbecue along with some great tradition of barbecue sauce and it is in my opinion that they are always striving to stay true to their roots, so with all that said, I am very proud to say that: Drapers BBQ has the Grilling with Rich Approval!

I have tried the rub on ribs and most recently on a ribeye steak which was an absolute treat, brings a nice savory flavor, adds the sweet and brings a little heat as well. Need to open up some sauce in the very near future! Hope you buy some from us and help out Shane Draper.
