Box Overview: Back to Basics

Welcome to The Ultimate BBQ Experience: Back to Basics. The products, accessories and recipes in this box were hand-selected by our team of expert pitmasters.

Pineapple Papaya BBQ by Torchbearer Sauces incorporates the sweetness and tang of papaya and pineapple that are often staples of Hawaiian cuisine. The two fruit flavors complement each other extremely well without overpowering, and pair well to create a flavor profile that’s great with kebabs, burgers, chicken, fish and so much more.

XXX-Garlic Seasoning Rub is made by Miners Mix in Mariposa, California – the gold mining Mother Lode region near Yosemite National Park. They're family-owned and operated by father and son duo, David and Josh Mandeville. They pride themselves in the fact that none of their ingredients are over three syllables, remaining true to their slogan: “If It Didn’t Exist In 1850, It Ain’t In Here!”

Habanero Smoke Sauce from BBQ Pit Boys is a limited release first drop, currently only available through Grill Masters Club! You’re among the first to try the newest sauce and flavor from BBQ Pit Boys.

Old Pit Dust Rub is from Red Dirt Rich BBQ in Cairo, Georgia. Their motto says it all: "Only smoke the best BBQ!" Red Dirt is their original blend and contains only tried and tested, premium ingredients that are guaranteed to elevate your pork, chicken, beef and most anything else you can BBQ to a whole new level.

Horseradish Mustard by Wilder Condiments is the unexpected essential to your next great dish. It’s the perfect marinade for steak or a cedar-roasted salmon, charcuterie board all star, and a great match for oysters!

We’ve also included a pair of Ready 2 Grill™ Pre-soaked Cedar Grilling Planks by Jaccard. Plank grilling is a centuries old Native American technique that provides robust flavor, pleasing aromas and a moist, even heat cooking surface. The western red cedar adds a savory, smoky flavor that goes great with fish, beef, chicken and vegetables!

About the Vendor: Torchbearer SaucesTorchbearer Sauce

Torchbearer Sauces was founded by Vid, Ben, and Tim, three guys in their 20s with a knack for creating tasty condiments, fiery hot sauces, and tasty recipes with them. Besides creating a range of table sauces and enough recipes to fill a book, Torchbearer has also been turning heads with the world’s first habanero cheesecake.

So how did Torchbearer start, you ask? Well, like many great inventions, the sauce itself started as a fluke. Vid and Ben just happened to have lots of extra habaneros in their gardens that they didn’t want to go to waste. As a result, they decided to create a habanero preserve. Little did they know that it ended up tasting better than anything on the market —so, naturally, they decided to share a good thing.

The three guys took a few days off work, drove from Pennsylvania to Texas—and back (over 72 hours!)—and picked up 666 pounds of habanero peppers. They spent two weeks of chopping, bagging, and freezing the peppers so they’d have enough for the upcoming winter. It wasn’t long before they were making all the sauces themselves, by hand.

Armed with temporary labels and their first full batch of sauce, it was now time to see if the world was ready. The guys went down to the Cajun Hot Sauce Festival in Louisiana and won three national awards with their sauces. More awards started coming and it wasn’t long before the word started getting out. The End.

Okay, well not quite The End. The guys are still hitting the hot sauce festivals and coming up with new concoctions all the time. Check out the latest news. Thanks for visiting the site!

About the Vendor: Miners Mix

Miners Mix is a family-owned and operated business, run by Dave and Josh, based in Mariposa -- home of California’s Yosemite National Park. In January, 1848 gold was discovered close by, which led to the 1849 gold rush.

Miners Mix embodies the art of gourmet cooking and flavors that could have been crafted back in the days of the gold miners who used to walk the hills and valleys of this Mother Lode region. There’s no MSG, no flavor enhancers, no preservatives, no artificial colors, and no high-fructose nonsense in any of our products. When you taste Miners Mix on a steak, piece of chicken, or some grilled mushrooms, you really do taste the food, just as those tough ol’ gold miners did so many years ago. Real flavors from real, honest-to-goodness spices because “If It Didn’t Exist In 1850, It Ain’t In Here”.

Miners Mix blends are a natural evolution of over 50 years of tending grills and smokers in searing desert heat as well as in snow and sleet. Great food is a balance of salt, spices and the natural flavors of what you’re eating. Seasonings are supposed to complement the flavor of the food; they should not cover up the natural flavor, nor become the primary flavor of what’s on the plate. After all, one eats foods for the flavor of the meats and vegetables - not the seasoning. We think that’s the way seasonings should be used and trust that you’ll agree.

The genesis of Miners Mix occurred back in 2003 during a year-long sabbatical in Australia with our two young children (Josh and Shelby). Our family drove coast to coast all over that wonderful nation, and we even made it to the island of Tasmania. Being native southern Californians, my wife and I are both addicted to Mexican food, a cuisine sadly represented in Australia where “tortilas” were kept in the grocery frozen foods section, and the first, most abundant ingredient listed on the single salsa brand label happened to be sugar. Surprisingly, masa was available in a local gourmet shop and so out of desperation, I taught myself to make corn tortillas by hand, learned to make refried beans from scratch and began tinkering with spices to make Mexican chorizo.

Upon return to California, and the plethora of chili varieties unavailable “Down Under”, I continued to tinker with my chorizo and other seasoning blends. Friends pushed and demanded that we start selling the seasonings and rub blends that I'd developed over the years. Despite misgivings and great reluctance to jump into a crowded fray, I decided to take the plunge and so in September of 2009, Miners Mix set up shop with a pop-up and folding table at the local Blazin' Hog BBQ competition. We've never looked back!

Thanks so much for your confidence and faith in purchasing our products. Pride in our approach to business swells when fully 99% of all who taste Miners Mix will roll their eyes and remark “OMG! What did you put on this?!” Everyone associated with Miners Mix derives immense satisfaction in seeing the pleasure we bring to folks through our great seasonings helping them to make great food.
