McIlhenny Company and Farmington Foods recently partnered to launch a line of flavorful new barbecue foodservice products—baby back pork ribs, boneless pork ribs and chicken drumsticks—each featuring the famous pepper sauce flavors. A match made in barbecue heaven, the premium quality of meat from Farmington Foods pairs perfectly with the boldness of TABASCO® brand Pepper Sauce flavors to create the authentic tastes of traditional American barbecue.
No smoker? No problem! These new products offer up the delicious, smoky flavors of everyone’s favorite barbecue without the time and effort it takes to make traditional barbecue dishes. Ready in just minutes, these convenient new products come fully cooked so you simply need to reheat and serve. Operators will appreciate the ease and convenience of the new Farmington Foods barbecue products while customers will love the bold, savory flavors of the TABASCO® brand-inspired sauces.
When it comes to barbecue, the sauce and seasonings are just as important as the selection and preparation of the meat. Many barbecue pit masters spend years perfecting their signature sauces, which often blend vinegar, molasses, ketchup and mustard and can range from tangy to sweet to spicy. Dry rubs add another layer of flavor with brown sugar and an array of spices like chili powder, cayenne pepper, paprika and more.
“Barbecue and TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce are two iconic American foods that naturally complement each other,” says Judson McLester, corporate chef of McIlhenny Company. “We were thrilled to work with Farmington Foods to develop this line of barbecue pork ribs and chicken drumsticks, new to the foodservice space. We used our dry industrial ingredients to develop the rub, as well as our Original Red and Chipotle Pepper Sauces to create two distinct barbecue sauces. We’ve also worked with them to create a chicken drumstick using the TABASCO® brand Green Jalapeño Pepper Sauce.”
With Farmington Foods’ premium heat-and-serve barbecue products, you can elevate your menu and satisfy customers’ demand for bold, flavorful barbecue. Serve up any of these new products to help drive traffic and boost sales.
