Fourth of July is fast approaching, and what’s the glorious fourth without some delicious barbecue? The problem is, it’s hot outside. Temperatures are in the high nineties here, and several days, we’ve hit a hundred. What do you do when your family begs for BBQ, but you really don’t want to fire up your grill? Gas, charcoal. . . it’s too hot!
Answer: Barbecue those pork chops in your crockpot.
I said “pork chops” up there because that’s what we had for dinner tonight, but really, you can throw any kind of meat into your slow cooker, add some Craig’s BBQ Sauce and a little chopped onion, and the neighbors will call and ask if they can join your family for supper. Pork, chicken, lamb, beef. . . whatever you’ve got in the fridge or freezer – just pop it into your crockpot and go.
If you’ve taken it out of the freezer, you don’t even have to thaw it before you put it in the slow cooker. Just make sure you let it cook for at least six hours on low and four hours on high.
Crockpot barbecue is so easy and effortless. Just place the chops or roast or whatever cut of meat you’ve got into your crockpot, pour a cup of Craig’s BBQSauce over it, add a handful of chopped onion, replace the lid, set the crockpot on high or low, depending on how long it’s going to cook, and go about your business.
These boiling hot summer days are the perfect time to use your crockpot. It doesn’t heat up your house, as your oven would, and you don’t have to stand out in the back yard in the broiling sun, turning meat on your grill while your family waits in the air-conditioned house.
The temperature here was in the high eighties, in fact. People are still loving to cook and eat outdoors in October!
While it’s true that every season is barbecue season, it’s also true that the vest of all possible barbecue sauces made on Planet Earth is Craig’s BBQ Sauce! There are some good bbq sauces out there, sure, but the best of them still can’t compete with Craig’s BBQ Sauce for perfection.
Craig’s BBQ Sauce has a sweet southern barbecue taste that will tickle your taste buds and make your whole body laugh out loud with delight! Just a little bit of a kick, added to the smoothness and sweetness, combines to make Craig’s BBQ Sauce the best of the best!
Craig’s BBQ sauce is excellent with every kind of meat you’ll ever want to throw on your grill, too. Chicken, pork, beef, lamb. . . all meats are better with Craig’s BBQ Sauce brushed on the top. And the sides. And the bottoms, too. Oh, heck, put a cup of Craig’s BBQ Sauce on the table for dippin’ purposes, too. They’ll ask for it so you might as well beat ’em to the punch.
You can choose between a regular bottle of Craig’s BBQ Sauce or our giant gallon bottle. You might as well order the big one to save yourself some time later on down the road. They’ll want more. They’ll ask for more. You’d better have more!

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.

If you’re not sure how good Craig’s sauces and techniques are, just order a bottle of his barbecue sauce. One taste and you, like the rest of us, will understand why this gentleman is the award-winning best of the best.While you’re ordering, you might as well try some of Craig’s pepper jelly as well. I’d tell you which flavor is the best but they’re ALL the best. Your best bet would be to order a mixed case and specify one of each.
Now that Easter has been and gone, what are you going to do with all those boiled eggs you and the kids had such a good time dyeing? You’re not going to just throw them away, are you? STOP RIGHT THERE!
The sun is shining – at least it’s shining here – and even if it’s not shining where you are, just wait and it will be. And when the sun is shining and the weather is springtime-warm, what does that mean?
It’s cookout time, that ‘s what it means. And where there’s a cooking, there are deviled eggs. What better use can you put them, than to use your Easter eggs as a delicious side dish for your first – or one of your first – outdoor barbecue? Devilled eggs go with everything!
So peel the lovely colors off your Easter eggs and cut each egg in half, longwise. Spoon out the yellow insides into a mixing bowl, and arrange the empty white halves on a pretty platter.
With a large spoon, crush and crumble the egg yolks into almost a powder. A few lumps are okay, but not too many. Assuming we started with a dozen dyed eggs, we now have 24 halves in the platter, right? Math.
To the mashed yolks, add three tablespoons mayonnaise (okay, you can use Miracle Whip too. . . .) and a teaspoon of yellow mustard. Mix all this together thoroughly, and add three tablespoons Texas Pepper Jelly’s Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly. Again, mix it up.
With a spoon, fill each empty egg half. If you prefer to be all fancy, put the filling in a piping bag and swirl the filling in. If you long to be fancy but do not own a piping bag, you can get the same effect if you use a baggie and cut a tiny corner off the bottom. Anyway.
Once you’re filled all the egg halves, sprinkle them with paprika, cover, and keep them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat them.
I have no desire to be fancy, nor do I own a piping bag, so my devilled eggs are delicious but not suitable-looking for House Beautiful magazine.
Once you add the pepper jelly, your yolk mixture will be just a little bit lumpy, but the lumps will be pieces of pineapple so don’t worry, it’s all yummy.
Really, really yummy.
There are a lot of barbecue sauces out there – all kinds of store brands and name brands and restaurant specialties, and many of them are pretty good. There is only one barbecue sauce out there that is better than “pretty good,” though. The barbecue sauce that is superlatively delicious is Craig’s BBQ Sauce.
Click on the image above and order some Craig’s BBQ Sauce for you and for your family. You’ll never buy a bottle off a grocery store shelf again, and when you order ribs in a restaurant, you’ll wish you could pour some Craig’s BBQ Sauce on them instead of the restaurant sauce.
