ZERO TO HERO

This secret blend made Rod the best rib cook in the country, and ultimately a national champion pitmaster. On the sweeter side with just a touch of heat, it’ll rock your pork, chicken, fish, and especially ribs…taking you from Zero to Hero on the competition trail or in your own backyard.

THE MOST POWERFUL STUFF

The mecca of all-purpose rubs, this spice blend turns your cow into WOW! Perfected over 12 years on the competition trail, this rub made Rod a national barbecue champion and the best brisket cook in the country. Excellent on just about everything, but it really is The Most Powerful Stuff…so use caution.

IPO

The best way to describe IPO is how it got here…a young, impressionable barbecue sauce made a road trip through Memphis and the Carolinas, and ended up in Kansas City where all good sauces are born. Twelve years in the making, IPO is the first product Rod developed for sale. It’s also the sauce that made Rod a national champion and the country’s best pork rib cook.

THE NEXT BIG THING

This is the sauce that made Rod Gray the best brisket cook in the country. It even won the Jack Daniels World Championship in Lynchburg, Tennessee. On the sweet side, with hints of smoke and spice, you’ll lick your lips just so you don’t waste a drop. A Kansas City barbecue sauce through and through.

15 YEARS, NEARLY 450 CONTESTS, 475,000 MILES, 58 WINS…AND COUNTING
