Do you have some men that are just really hard to buy for? Or maybe you have a foodie in your family that you'd like to surprise. Either way I've had the chance to try some great products that would work well for both groups.
I don't have a BBQ pit or way to grill at my apartment so I didn't get the full effect of Jake's Righteous BBQ Sauce. But I did use it for hamburgers I made on the stove. Jake sent us the Medium Hot BBQ Sauce. They were had a great taste to them. But OH MAN! The spicy kick afterwards was something else! If your giftee doesn't like spicy stuff I'd suggest getting the Original.
I also received some of the Southwestern Dry Rub. I didn't have anything to dry rub. But when I opened it I instantly wanted to eat it on french fries. So I made some fries. It was seriously yummy.
Another great thing about Jake's is that their stuff is all natural. No msg or any of that other yucky stuff you don't want in your food or your body.
#2- Bacon Hot Sauce
I know what you're thinking. The same thoughts went through my head. WHAT? Who would eat that?! Wait, Bacon Hot Sauce? Casey would eat that. He'll eat ANYTHING with bacon on it. You know, it actually doesn't sound to bad...
It's not to bad. We ate it with some chicken strips. Casey really likes it. I think it's ok. It's not spicy. Like at all. And when I hear Hot Sauce I want it to be HOT. I mean, look at that sweaty pig blowing fire. Doesn't that make you think your mouth is going to die? Other than that any person that you know that is IN LOVE with Bacon will be thrilled to get this as a gift.
J-Burger Seasonings "turn ordinary burgers into gourmet!" It's great for a foodie in your life. Or maybe that brother or uncle that you have that's not married and isn't the greatest cook. Give them some of this and their food will taste great occasionally.
I have to admit. The first time I used the seasoning was in burgers and I horribly messed up. They turned into onion flavored sloppy joe meat. I later found out from my Father-in-Law that the burger meat should be as cold as possible when making the patties so they stick together better.
The second time I used it I made meatloaf. It was delicious, moist, and held together. My family normally likes meatloaf anyway but Casey actually complimented it the night I used the J-Burger seasoning.
Over the years I have found that food or gourmet seasonings and sauces are great for any man in your family. I mean really, what man doesn't like eating? And what man doesn't like his food to taste good or like bacon?
I hope this helped you with some ideas for your shopping list this season.
I received a product to review from each of these companies. I was in no other way compensated. The pictures of the J-Burger Seasoning and Jake's BBQ Sauce came form the website because I forgot to take a picture before I used it all. The Bacon Hot Sauce picture is my own.
