Whilst at Gunther’s Gourmet Gala we did a multiple blog review with Marilyn & Brian Meagher of HotSauceDaily & HotSauceWeekly, John Scrovak from EatMoreHeat.com, Alex Goldberg & Buddah from ILIS, as well special guest Clement Bourg of Cajun Heat. A big thanks to host Michael Lampros from Gunther’s Gourmet for setting these reviews up. Joe Bolland stopped by the Gala to get some feedback on his product. Since we had done no BBQ chicken wing reviews we offered to do one for his product, and he obviously accepted. This sauce is a head turner for sure. I am sure Joe could not have asked for better reviews for his barbecue sauce. We all await to see what he will come up for his spicy version for this great product. Before we get to the review here is a little bit of history in the development for this sauce and company…
Joe Bolland Barbecue Company is a new company that will be producing sauces and dry rubs. Our current product in development is “PITTSAUCE”. Pittsauce is a finishing sauce, or glaze and tastes great on pork, chicken, burgers, and more!
To provide quality sauces and dry rubs to enhance you barbecue cooking with a burst of flavor so good you’ll want to lick your plate clean!
I grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA where barbecue was an event. We would often have a barbecue on the weekends. When I returned from Iraq in 2005 and moved to Virginia, I discovered barbecue was not an event, but a cooking style of seasoning, smoking, and slow cooking a variety of meats such as pork, beef, chicken, and sausage to name a few. As I sampled barbecue from several local restaurants I became hooked. I learned that there were many different styles: Carolina, Memphis, Kansas City to name the more popular. Soon my passion turned me to my own kitchen where after many long hours I perfected my first sauce. I thought hard about what to call it when a friend suggested “Pittsauce” to pay homage to my hometown of Pittsburgh and referencing a barbecue pit. It sounded good so I went with it and that is how it all began. Downtown Pittsburgh is known as the golden triangle, so I incorporated that into the logo. Pittsauce is currently being developed and tested, and I hope to have it available later this year. Pittsauce is great as a glaze to brush on your meats after they have been cooked and putting them back on the grill and allow the sauce to caramelize. Also great on burgers to make a barbecue burger, and as a dipping sauce. If all goes well I hope to follow up Pittsauce with a dry rub that I will call “Pittspice”…getting the theme here? So, whether your having a barbecue, or having barbecue for dinner, I hope you will make Joe Bolland Barbecue Company apart of it. Thank You!
