It’s here! The biggest cookout weekend of the year! Labor Day weekend is often the weekend for the last, biggest, and best cookout! We invite friends, family, and everybody in the neighborhood to come break bread and grill meat with us.
I hope you ordered your Texas Pepper Jelly products in time and that you’ve stocked up for tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday’s outdoor cooking extravaganza. Pepper Jelly, Rib Candy, Craig’s BBQ Sauce, Snake River Farms meats. . . All the very best cookout condiments and meats to help turn your weekend grilling into a real holiday!
It’ll still be pretty hot outside this Labor Day Weekend, but firing up that grill doesn’t heat up your yard like firing up your stove/oven heats up your house. With some cold side dishes to go with your hot, delicious, Texas Pepper Jelly product-covered grilled meats and vegetables, any and every meal eaten in your backyard, state park picnic area, etc, will absolutely HIT THE SPOT.
Even a simple cookout featuring hamburgers and hog dogs will be indescribably delicious when you use Texas Pepper Jelly products.
Let’s just try to remember basic cookout safety, and also some basic sharing rules, because people are going to see and smell your grilling and it’s hard to be careful when those aromas meet up with intensely hungry people who love good barbecue!
Keep a full bucket of plain water right beside your grill, and NO SHOVING!
Have a wonderful Labor Day – you and everyone you know. Eat hearty!
Hey, listen, Labor Day is coming up REALLY SOON! Hamburger is on sale in most grocery stores, and in fact, so are pork chops and ribs. Everybody is getting ready for that awesome Labor Day cookout, including the merchants!
No cookout is complete without plenty of barbecue sauce, and Craig’s BBQ Sauce is the best you can buy.
You can buy Craig’s BBQ Sauce by the jar, or you can buy it by the gallon.
Your Labor Day cookout also needs a good supply of Texas Rib Candy, and we make several different flavors of this awesomely delicious grilling sauce. Our Rib Candies make awesome shish kabobs – brush the meats with Rib Candy and string them on the kabob skewers, alternating with vegetables and the fruit that was used to flavor the sauce!
The point is, Labor Day means, for most people, one of the last big cookouts of the season, and a big cookout needs as many Texas Pepper Jelly products as possible! Your family, friends, and other guests will thank you.
When it’s time to buy more BBQ sauce, why bother buying those little bottles from the grocery store? We all know those don’t last very long, especially in the summer when grilling is at its peak!
My advice to all of you is to buy your barbecue sauce by the gallon, and what better place – and what better barbecue sauce – than right here at Texas Pepper Jelly.
Buying barbecue sauce by the gallon means you’ll have enough sauce for several cookouts, not just one or two, because everybody knows that a good cookout requires not only BBQ sauce on the cooking meats but also BBQ sauce on the table so people can add more. And people always want to add more.
Chicken, pork, beef, lamb. . . whatever kind of meat you put on your grill, Craig’s BBQ Sauce will enhance it and make it more delicious than it already was.
Are you grilling vegetables, too? Craig’s BBQ Sauce is delicious on veggies, too.
Texas Pepper Jelly offers Craig’s BBQ Sauce in several sizes, so pick the size that is most convenient to you. However, if you do a lot of grilling out, BBQ by the gallon might be your best bet!
Besides, where else can you buy a GALLON of BBQ Sauce?
Boy, is it ever hot outdoors! This is the hottest, wettest July in many people’s memories! It can’t rain every day, though, and some of those clear, sunny days will be perfect for a cookout!
No cookout is complete without some good barbecue, and nothing makes a barbecue good like Craig’s BBQ Sauce.
Craig’s BBQ Sauce will turn your barbecue into an EVENT, not just a meal. Whether it’s just family, or extended family, or family and friends, Craig’s BBQ Sauce with your food will put a smile on every face in your back yard.
Hamburgers, hot dogs, chops, steaks, ribs. . . Craig’s BBQ Sauce makes EVERYTHING ON YOUR GRILL better. Order some today!
You’ll be wanting more of our barbecue sauce, so why not save yourself some time by purchasing it by the gallon? You’ll be glad you did. Craig’s BBQ Sauce is something you won’t want to run out of.
The weather outside today was bright and breezy. I didn’t want to fix a heavy complicated meal, so I thought I’d prepare one of my mainstays, which is also one of my children’s favorites, which they have, since childhood, called Sloppy Pepper Joes.
This is actually just regular sloppy joes, but with an assortment of peppers added to the meat. These added peppers make an incredible difference in what was a very ordinary dish. Add the peppers and it’s ordinary no more.
I go one step further, in fact. To the mixture of meat, onions, and peppers, I add some Craig’s BBQ Sauce instead of mere ketchup or tomato sauce.
My kids have told me many times that the first appearance of Sloppy Pepper Joes on the table is one of their signals that it’s really spring. I hadn’t noticed that I never served this in winter, but apparently I don’t.
This is technically a sandwich, of course, but it’s also a meal. A meal on a bun. It’s a meal on a bun that’s easy to make and really nutritious as well.
2 pounds ground sirloin (any kind of ground beef will do, of course, but I prefer to use ground sirloin.)
2 large onions, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 cup Craig’s BBQ Sauce
Dash salt, if you want
Dash black pepper
What to do:
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet; drain thoroughly. THOROUGHLY. Add all the other ingredients and mix completely. If you need more barbecue sauce, feel free to add more. I usually do.
Cover the skillet and simmer on the lowest heat your stove is capable of. Set your timer for fifteen minutes, but check every five minutes or so.
In the meantime, warm your buns (saying that always cracks me up!) in the microwave.
I always serve this dish with potato salad and baked beans. Flip through the Texas Pepper Jelly blog, and you’ll find awesome recipes for both of these side dishes!
Turn off the stove burner, and spoon the mixture into a serving bowl. Set it on the table with the sides, and call in your family. Stand back.
There will be no leftovers. But on the off chance that there is a little big leftover, add some sour cream and serve later that night with crackers.
Texas Pepper Jelly products are super versatile.
This time of year, when the flowers are blooming after a long, cold winter, and when the temperature outside is in the seventies after that same long, cold winter, people want to socialize with their friends more than ever. We’ve all been cooped up for months, and now that we can leave our homes without bundling up, without scraping an inch or more of ice off our cars, and without slipping and falling down on ice, we want to visit and be visited. For most of us, socialization means food, and in this new springtime good weather, food means barbecue.
And barbecue means outdoor cooking.
If you’re going to have friends over for some barbecue, you need to use the very best barbecue sauce on the market. That means you need to order some Craig’s BBQ Sauce from Texas Pepper Jelly.
When you serve your family and friends food grilled with Craig’s BBQ Sauce, they will eat up everything on the picnic table. There will be NOTHING left over. Craig’s BBQ Sauce on the meat means everything else will taste better, too. Even the pickles and sodas will taste better if Craig’s BBQ Sauce is used on the grill.
When you call friends to invite them over for barbecue, just tell them up front that you’ll be using Craig’s BBQ Sauce and you won’t get a “Thanks. We’ll get back to you!” You’ll get “Thanks!!!! When should we be there? We can be there in a few minutes!”
That’s because there is no barbecue sauce made anywhere today that comes even close to Craig’s BBQ Sauce. Texas Pepper Jelly’s Craig’s BBQ Sauce is the best. The BEST.
There is no comparable barbecue sauce on the market.
