1. Brat Making Kit
If there’s anything worth the time investment, it’s fresh sausage. Sure, you could go to the grocery store and pick up a pack of your favorite brats. But imagine how impressed your friends and family will be when they find out you made them yourself. We’ve packaged everything you need into this all-in-one kit to give you ultimate bragging rights.
2. Li’l Harry’s Rib Rub
Whether you’re grilling or smoking your meats, a rub is necessary to build the foundation for rich sweet and smoky flavors. Our best-selling rub has all the elements with a blend of sugar, salt, garlic, paprika, hickory smoked flavor and spices. Not just for ribs, you can rub this on any protein to create a savory crust that will seal in all the juices.
3. Sweet Onion Applewood BBQ Sauce
No cookout is complete without a classic and versatile BBQ sauce. Our Sweet Onion Applewood sauce harnesses the fragrant and fruity notes of applewood smoke with added richness from sweet onions, brown sugar, and molasses. This will be your back-pocket sauce for pulled pork, briskets, wings and everything else.
4. High-Temp Cheddar Cheese
You know the scenario. You cut perfectly even cubes of cheese and mix them into your ground beef mixture. You throw them on the grill, then onto your bun and take a bite and...your cheese’s liquified remains are there, charring on your grates. That’s because most store-bought cheeses aren’t made to withstand the high temperatures of the grill. Our variety of high-temp cheese will add cheesy flavor and goodness to your burgers and brats without any disappearing acts.
5. Ultimate Seasoning
You know the Swiss army knife you use for everything? Well, this is like that, but for food. With sea salt, black pepper, garlic, onion, paprika and more, our #1 selling blend adds a well-rounded flavor to anything you put it on. The ultimate seasoning for the ultimate grill master.
6. Better Burger
No grilling roundup is complete without the Better Burger Seasoning. As one of our top-selling blends, it really is the best burger seasoning money can buy (and it has butter in it). We’ll let the reviews speak for themselves:
“This stuff is awesome.” Ray M.
“Better Burger is the best stuff I ever used on meats. Even my kids love it.” - Robert H.
“I use BBS on just about everything.” - Pat H.
7. Smokehouse BBQ Rub
Love the smoke flavor but don’t have room for a smoker? This all-purpose rub will make any meat or veggies taste like they’re straight from the smokehouse. Sprinkle into your favorite BBQ sauce or chili for extra wood-fired heartiness.
8. Whiskey Barrel BBQ Sauce
When most people think of good ‘cue, they think of sticky, finger-licking sauces that caramelize as they cook. Our Whiskey Barrel BBQ is the epitome of finger-licking sauces with loads of brown sugar, molasses, and a shot of aged bourbon whiskey right out of the barrel. Paint it on in luscious layers at the end of cooking for drool-worthy results.
9. Pro Smoker PK100
When it comes to BBQ, go big or go home, right? If you’re a grill master ready to take your skills to the next level, it’s time to invest in a quality smoker. Our home series electric smoker is stainless steel throughout for extreme durability, and temperature controlled for consistently mouthwatering results. Perfect for the home smoker looking for professional results.
10. Door County Cherry Marinade
Marinade or dry rub? Whichever side you’re on, both can add depth and flavor to your meats. While a dry rub can be applied up to the point of cooking, a marinade takes planning and can be most effective on thinner cuts of meat. This dry marinade can work as either, just add water or rub on dry and let the fine grain flavors seep into your meats.
