Although the worst of the global pandemic is apparently behind us, some unlikely trickle down effects are causing problems in the barbecue sauce world for us little guys. Plastic is in short supply.

When COVID hit, supply chains became screwed up worldwide. This affected plastics production along with most everything else. Then add in the winter storm that hit Texas in February, which shut down many petroleum based plants, and we have an even bigger problem. According to this article in the Harvard Business Review, it may take up to a year to get everything in the plastic supply chain back in balance.

What does this have to do with Swamp Boys BBQ Sauces? It means your favorite retail store may run out for a bit. It means that there are going to be times when we can’t get plastic bottles. It means sometimes when we can get plastic bottles, they may look different than our traditional bottle. It means our glass jars and lids may change – and they have. All nightmares for brands that count on continuity.

Thanks for your patience while we work through some changes. It’s frustrating to not be able to provide our products to everyone who wants it. But we’re trying. And like the rest of the world, we are really looking forward to life being back to normal again. Please stay with us and thanks for your continued support.

Is there a barbecue sauce that tastes so amazing that it helps win professional bbq championships all across the world, and is a healthier alternative to most other barbecue sauces? Yes there is!!

Since the beginning, every Swamp Boys BBQ product has been All Natural, Gluten Free, and contains No HFCS. We use simple ingredients and are proud of our clean label. Publix Supermarkets recognized this early on when we were brought into their stores by tagging Rub’s Original BBQ Sauce with their leaf tag, signifying that “…it is made without artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors…”.

Now it looks as though they are introducing a new tag, “made without”, indicating the product is made without certain ingredients. It has a link to their website where they discuss helping the customer reach their wellness goals by avoiding certain ingredients. It also discusses the requirements to meet their strict in-house “GreenWise” product line, which our sauce also meets. To be clear, we are not labeled as a GreenWise product. But we do meet the criteria.

So the next time you’re buying some barbecue sauce, please consider ours. Not only does it have a great taste that’s loved the world over, it’s also a healthier choice! Not to mention you’ll be supporting a very small family  business. Thank you!

When I first brought my rub to market I had just planned on bbq teams using it, so I only had the one size which is 10.5oz. Now that it’s spread to backyard bbq’ers and into the everyday kitchen, I’ve been asked to offer a smaller size. So here it is, the 5oz bottle! You can find it where Swamp Boys products are sold, and right here at my online store. Enjoy!
