It doesn’t matter if it is the middle of winter, some folks are die-hard grillers and will happily dust the snow off the grill for the taste of Barbeque. But even if the chill does keep you indoors, this BBQ Sauce and BBQ Rub combo are equally comfortable in your slow cooker, oven, or stovetop. They’re perfect for flavoring dishes with the summer taste we all love. Add a basting brush, oven mitts, and other grilling accessories to a basket with your BBQ jars for a thoughtful Christmas gift for anyone who appreciates the flavor. These are all ingredients you probably already have on hand at home, and may not have realized you could combine them to make your own yummy sauce and rub.

*Bear in mind this item is not shelf stable, it has not been actually “canned” and will need to remain refrigerated, even if you are gifting this item. It will keep for 2-3 weeks in refrigeration
