About the Vendor: Bear Mountain BBQ (Louisville, CO)

At Bear Mountain BBQ, we strive to serve up a smoking foundation that delivers infinite flavor possibilities for quality meals and good times with friends & family.


We believe that BBQ should taste delicious!

Rooted in the Pacific Northwest since 1990, we’ve spent the past 30 years crafting premium quality wood pellets for those that are passionate about BBQ.  But at Bear Mountain, we don’t just care deeply about the way our grilled food tastes; we also care a whole lot about the earth.  That’s how we decided to bring these two passions together.

We wanted to add rich, smoky flavor to food without using anything artificial.  So naturally (pun intended), we turned to wood pellets. We know wood smoke adds a depth of flavor you can’t get any other way — and is every grill master’s secret weapon. So, we experimented.  After combining lots of different choice hardwoods, we learned a thing or two and have crafted delicious flavors with the perfect wood blends.

Now, we’ve got a full range of grilling and smoking pellets that pair perfectly with a whole lot of incredible foods and boost flavor to crowd-pleasing levels.  Hickory that adds richness to steaks. Apple to bring out the sweetness in pork.  Cherry for taking chicken beyond delicious.  Alder for the perfect salmon. All using no fillers, no additives, zero binders  — just pure, all-hardwood for mouthwatering flavor. 

So now that you know our story, we invite you to try our BBQ pellets the next time you fire up your grill. We’re pretty sure you’ll experience an authentic BBQ taste you could never imagine (or find using anything else).  And get ready… friends and family will start to gather and good times will arise, guaranteed.

– Your fellow BBQ lovers at Bear Mountain BBQ

About the Vendor: Blonde Beard's Buffalo Sauce

Blonde Beard's Buffalo Sauce

We’re Adam and Cara Nelson, aka Mr. and Mrs. Blonde Beard. We're addicted to wings and have created the world’s first craft buffalo sauce that will make you smile and inspire you to cook, share, eat and be happy.

Our journey into the wing world began long ago under the starry humid skies of Atlanta, Georgia. We grew up in country kitchens full of fried chicken, buttered biscuits and hot sauce on everything. Football was either on the TV or being played outside and chicken wings were the star of the tailgate spread. Working at wing restaurants became second nature and so did our love for cooking wings at home.

While living in California after college, we started frying wings with an old turkey frier we had in the garage. Great wings need great sauce, so we started making our own sauce with ingredients found in our fridge. Much to our surprise, these little chicken wing parties turned into a journey of several years cooking and creating craft wings and sauces for friends and family from L.A. to Austin to Denver, Colorado

Our hobby has now turned into a business, fueled by our mission to inspire others to come together over a great meal. Join us on this epic journey to help fire up your inner chef and to make Blonde Beard's a joyful staple in every kitchen.
