GRILLING SAUCES AND RUBS AT BEKINS

BIG GREEN EGG BARBECUE SAUCE

Big Green Egg says to try their sauces with your favorite pizza and calzones, or try some in place of ketchup for burgers and fries. Kick up the flavor of baked beans and potatoes, mix them in your favorite meatloaf or spice up your Bloody Mary mix. Zesty Mustard Honey and Vidalia Onion Sriracha might really mix it up at your feast.

KAMADO JOE GOURMET MEAT RUB

Kamado Joe says all of their rubs are specially formulated with organic evaporated cane juice as well as corn starch to keep the sugars from liquefying and dissipating. The formula leaves more flavor in your grilled meats along with less risk of burning and blackening. Maybe try the Peach or Warm Spice flavors to test your taste buds this weekend.

BOURBON BARRELL KENTUCKYAKI

The Kentucky-style hot and spicy teriyaki sauce adds flavor to beef, pork, chicken, fish, stir-fry and grilled veggies.

WOODFORD RESERVE BOURBON SUGAR

In the vanilla flavor, a Bourbon Madagascar Vanilla Bean is added to raw Demerara sugar to enhance the rich caramel flavors with a hint of vanilla for added complexity. Try sprinkling it on grilled salmon.

DIZZY PIG GOURMET GAME ON! WILD GAME/RED MEAT SEASONING

Fresh coffee, chipotle chiles, and a hint of ginger provide some of the unique touches to Game On! Seasoning works best on venison, game and red meat. It can also flavor soups, stews and pan dishes. You can even use it as a finishing spice.
