    My wife and I are KCBS judges. We’ve tasted many sauce styles, many with a base from a company I won’t mention. Most pro teams use this base for their sauce. I decided to order your gift pack with both sauces and the six rubs. We like three of your rubs we use for all types of cooking. However, your sauces are “killer”! That means it’s crazy good!! It reminds me personally of sauces I would find when I was a young man. I wish I had learned of Old Arthur years ago. We will continue to use your products until……well lets just say, hopefully for a long time. Thank you!!
