About Buzz's BBQ

No production crew, no sales team, no delivery trucks, I'm just a programmer with a passion for BBQ.

It all started in 1997, I got tired of searching the store shelves only to find BBQ sauces that had too much smoke, too vinegary, too sweet, or too watery. So I started experimenting with making my own bbq sauce in an attempt to find the right balance of sweet, tangy, and just a little smoke.

After some trial and error (and lots of bbq), I found the balance of flavors I was looking for in a sauce. This combination would eventually become Buzz's BBQ Original.

Over the years my guinea pigs family & friends requested more and more sauce. Requests even started coming in from friends of friends who had tried the sauce. I knew I needed to take things to the next level. And after many months of research, planning, and certifications I was ready to start production. Later that year, the first bottle of Buzz's BBQ Original rolled off of the production line.

I produce Buzz's BBQ sauce at the Venture Out Business Center Commercial Kitchen. Production is a hands-on process with no automation. Everything from preparation and cooking to filling and labeling is done by hand.
