History of BBQ Sauce

Barbecue (or BBQ) is referred to meat cooked over direct or indirect fire heat. It can also refer to the equipment needed to cook the meat in this way, or even to the parties and social gatherings involving the preparation of meat in this way as their central component.

One may date the history of barbecue back to 1.8 million years ago when our ancestors, called Homo Erectus, began cooking meat over fire; but what we call barbecue today, which is cooking minced or chopped meat with lots of different spices and sauces over a grill or a pit originated in the Caribbean and the word barbecue itself comes from the language of the Taino Indian tribe in the same region. They called the food cooked on a wooden grate over a fire “barbacoa” and the very same word was later used by Spanish colonialists in historical books and recipes for the first time. Later, the American colonialists began using a similar method of barbecuing in their own national and state-level and family occasions and events where the tradition had become their integral part.

However, like any other such food spreading to other parts of the world, barbecue needed its own variated, specialty sauces and in fact people in every region developed their own version of a barbecue sauce according to their own taste and preference. Nowadays, BBQ sauces have turned into products over which some serious competition has been underway among various manufacturers and each and every brand has been trying to appease the avid BBQ-lovers by creating its own special sauce with very specific ingredients.

History of Hot Ketchup

ketchup or tomato sauce, unlike its relatively simple ingredients, has made a long journey. The name appears to come from Chinese Mandarin, meaning a fish sauce. But until the end of the nineteenth century in Europe, every sauce that was made from mushrooms, vinegar or even walnuts was called ketchup. What is known today as ketchup, in Britain and Europe was called red sauce or tomato sauce. After the nineteenth century and after World War II, the spread of American culture around the world replaced the red sauce with ketchup. Using ketchup in the early seventies in all American cuisine was commonplace. So that when Richard Nixon, the US president, said in an interview that his favorite breakfast was cheese and ketchup, nobody laughed at him! Ketchup is basically cooked tomato, but various ingredients such as vinegar, garlic and different spices may be added, and it is served with several meat and vegetable dishes.

History of ketchup Jalapeno

One hot Texas day in July 1981, as Ben stopped for lunch at a local West Texas chicken joint during a weekend college break, something magical happened. By inadvertently dipping a jalapeno pepper into ketchup, it was Love at First Bite. Visions of jalapeno and ketchup together in products began as a tiny submissive thought planted in the back of his mind. Ben was on his way to discovering the quintessence of condiments...Jalapeno Ketchup. Later, when working in the "Oil Patch", Ben cooked up his first batch at his home. It was Good! From that day on, he was determined to create the best looking, finest tasting jalapeno and tomato products available.

Around 1994 Ben and his good friend tested several versions and formulas over almost four months before finding the perfect product with the right look, texture, taste, and heat--but not too sweet. They Named it “Spiceitup”
