Uncle Jack has come over to visit today. We are going fire up the grill and give Uncle Jack’s Ozark BBQ Sauce and dry rub a try. Over a two day period we cooked some ribs, chicken wings and sausage. Uncle Jacks is an ‘All Natural” sauce with no preservatives. There is no high fructose corn syrup and this sauce is gluten free. Last but not least this is a ‘True Ozark Product’.(“A product that represents the essence of the Ozarks, the disappearing pioneer spirit and the true hickory smoke flavors that flourished in the 19th and early 20th century Ozarks.” )This sauce is manufactured in

At the Chilebrown kitchen, it is standard practice to apply a dry rub to meats before grilling. The ingredients listed are simple and few; Brown sugar, kosher salt, paprika, dehydrated onion, garlic and spices. It has a pleasant sweet aroma. You will get a faint smell of the dehydrated onion. We shook a generous coating over all our meats. We returned them to the ice cave for several hours.
The first day we cooked our ribs. The rub did its job and painted a beautiful sheen of color over our ribs. When the ribs were done we brushed Uncle Jacks BBQ sauce all over the ribs. We put them back into the barbeque just long enough to set the sauce. Today we were trying the ‘Spicy” version of Uncle Jack’s BBQ sauce. The sauce is ketchup based, sweet molasses style sauce. This sauce was tasty on our seasoned ribs. I am not sure you could call this hot by any stretch. Ms. Goofy loved the sweetness that this sauce provided. I thought it was a good blend of spices, smoke, molasses and vinegar that leaned toward the sweet side. The combination of rub and sauce complimented each other.
Chicken wings went on the grill the next day. The sugar in the rub provided a amber glaze to our wings. Once again when the meat was done we applied some sauce. We really enjoyed this combination. The sauce complimented the richness of the wings. Ms. Goofy licked her paws clean.
Uncle Jacks Ozark BBQ Sauce and rub is welcome at our barbeque anytime. The rub is an all-purpose seasoning. We would like to try it on some grilled corn. The barbeque sauce is a sweet tomato based style of sauce. The heat level is mild and great for everybody. You can visit the Ozarks in your own backyard. We love our Uncle Jack.
