I'm a reseller of a couple brands of BBQ sauces and rubs. I'm a very, very small dealer and started about two months ago. My financial goal is to make enough profit to pay for a couple of BBQ contest entry fees each year: about $350. So, I'm not going to get rich, but it will compensate some for my hobby of competition BBQ.

Blues Hog
Blues Hog is one of the most widely used series of products on the competition circuit. At least 1/3 of the teams at any contest are using Blues Hog. Many won't admit it: secrets. :laughing: It is great on chicken, ribs, and pork shoulder.

Mean Dean
Dean Bury is someone I know through BBQ comps. He has a catering business and only does 5-6 comps a year. However, he places in the top 5 in at least one category every contest. He's an infrequent top cook. His product is used quietly by some top teams. Partners well with everything: chicken, ribs, pork, brisket. I recently had a team tell me that whenever they've used Mean Dean sauce on brisket, they've been top 5 in that category. The sauce is a fruit based sauce with a lot of apricot. Original recipes.

I'll dig up some pictures of our competition entries to give you an idea of what a BBQ comp entry looks like.

What's funny, is that I don't even use charcoal or wood sticks/chunks/chips for most of my BBQ. I use wood pellets. My smoker looks like a traditional offset smoker, but the offset "firebox" is actually a pellet hopper. Has an electronic controller that feeds pellets and forced air into a small fire ring in the center of the pit. Basically, I set a specific temp on the digital controller and it auto starts. I'm usually up to cooking temp within 5-10 minutes. Lazy guys BBQ, but I can smoke something everyday and still watch a game, watch the kids, or work in the shop.

We do have a commercial sized stick burner as well. I also smoke in my Weber kettle grill.

What delivery company was that? I'll put a package together on Friday and get back to you. I'm away from home for a couple of days.

Thanks for the interest.

I have to say that the Blues Hog sauce is excellent, and like Plowboy, I'm from Kansas City, so I'm an expert :smile:. I stumbled upon it three or four years ago and have used a lot of it since. I've judged some BBQ competitions and haven't really ran into that many people using it (it has a recognizable unique flavor that's hard to miss), but it isn't a characteristic Kansas City BBQ sauce.

The Blues Hog rub is awesome for brisket. I think it overpowers chicken though. I rub my briskets in a mix of molasses and worchestershire, and then rub in the BH rub and let it sit in the fridge overnight. It makes a pretty mean brisket. I just gave away my secret, but I don't compete. I also use BH rub on smoked sausage, and I put their sauce in my beans.

Good luck with that. I do at least 1 competition a month and most of the time I do 2 comps. Let us know how you do. Do you belong to a sanctioning body?
