Country Chef Grilling Sauces on Kickstarter

I’m a big fan of Kickstarter projects (I’ve backed over 30), but I’ve never featured one in a post on HotSauceDaily.

[vision_notification style=”warning” font_size=”14px” closeable=”false”] UPDATE 04/08/2014: Sadly, the Kickstarter campaign has been cancelled. Hopefully, Chef Mike will re-tool and do another one. In the meantime, there is still a lot of juicy good info in this post. [/vision_notification]

Country Chef Grilling Sauces on Kickstarter

So I’m doing my first one for Country Chef Grilling Sauces from Chef Mike Espey of North Carolina, because I really believe in the flavors and quality of sauces from him.

What is Kickstarter?

It’s a “crowd funding” website of “projects” for start-up companies (I favor the foodies, BBQ, & hot sauces projects), where you pledge dollars towards their goal, and for pledging you get “rewards”… which depend on the project.

If the project does not meet their goal, you are out nothing – you will not be charged your pledge.

If they do make their goal, you get the rewards for supporting them.

Who or what is Country Chef Grilling Sauce?

Chef Mike Espey created a line of grilling sauces back in 2011, and is now ready to branch out and go nationwide.

I’ve been a fan of Chef Mike Espey’s since 2011, where we first reviewed his Mustard Grilling Sauce. His lineup has grown to six flavors of grilling sauces – Original, Hickory Smoke, Honey, Mustard, Chipotle & Sweet & Spicy.

So I’m asking our readers to visit the Kickstarter page for Country Chef Grilling Sauces and make a pledge.

You can make a pledge as little as $1 (One dollar) and up. Payments are handled easily via Amazon payments.

Here’s a video we made a little while back grilling some wings with Country Chef’s Mustard Sauce:

Good luck to Chef Mike and Country Chef Grilling Sauce!

Please support Country Chef in this project, even if you just do $1 – that way you’ll get all updates on it, and hopefully you’ll up your pledge later.

  1. I think Kickstarter is an excellent avenue for small batch makers. Anytime I have someone tell me that I should bottle and sell my sauce, I explain to them what an over-saturated, celebrity chef heavy category that BBQ sauce is. It takes a LOT of work to bring small batches to market which is why I try not to complain about paying $12-15 dollars a bottle when buying online.

    • I’m with you man… I don’t mind paying a premium for BBQ sauces. You and I both know between packing and shipping, $10 – 15 bucks for a really good sauce is nothing.

      $2.79 – 4.79 off the shelf of a grocer is nothing.

      You get what you pay for.

      Thanks for chiming in on this topic of Kickstarter. Regarding Chef Mike’s project… I really believe he set his goal way too high. As good as his sauce(s) are… he’s shooting for the moon instead of the sky. 🙂
