Grandvilles Gourmet BBQ Jam – Pineapple Sauce Review

A line of BBQ sauces Jams like no other

It’s 1898 and you’re in Kentucky. You’re thirsty, or hungry, or both. Folks ’round these parts tell you to look up Grandville Whitesides.

“Mr Moonshine” they call him. And some call him “The Sauce Man”. Yup. He’s out back makin’ moonshine and BBQ sauce. At least that’s what GrandvillesBBQSauces.com would have you believe. For now, I have no reason to doubt them.

Fast forward 114 years, it’s 2012 and you’re reading this post. Yup. He’s still “out back making ‘shine and sauce” – and you are the luckier for it. We have “stumbled” onto some of the most unique barbecue sauces we’ve ever had in our short time here on the Internets. Chunky and flavorful, thick and rich – their assortment of flavors runs from Mild to Original Spicy to Extra Spicy – there’s Pineapple and Ginger Glaze and Cajun Kick – truly an amazing line-up of flavors.

Red Brothers Fiery Habanero All Natural BBQ Sauce

While at the Swinetastic BBQ Festival, a KCBS Competition in Frederick, MD on June 17-18, 2011, I happened upon a couple of Maryland-based BBQ sauce companies. John Layton of Red Brothers was participating in the Backyard Competition while his brother Chris manned their vendor’s booth. After tasting 2 of their 3 BBQ Sauces, I decided to purchase the hottest of the offerings, their Fiery Habanero All Natural BBQ sauce. Based on an 80 year old family recipe from their Grandma D (a great family story, BTW), I persuaded Brian to try this on wings this weekend. Although neither of us prefer a hot BBQ sauce, we decided to give it a go, based on the flavor profile, and the fact that it may make for some great “hot” wings.

Recipe Makeover: Homemade Sloppy Joes Better Than Manwich

Recipe Makeover: Homemade Sloppy Joes Better than Manwich

You’ll never buy Hunt’s Manwich Sauce in a can again.
This is my homemade version of Manwich Sloppy Joes that I’ve been making at home since I was a teen. It is so simple, and as Brian says, “it’s the bomb!”.

This is a recipe using 2 lbs of ground beef. You could use 1 lb, but this is so good, and freezes so well (if it makes it that far) that you should go with the 2 lb version. I use my Le Creuset dutch oven, but a large cast iron skillet works as well.
