San Francisco, CA (January 19, 2018) – Whose BBQ sauce would a cowboy and rooster rather pour over their grilled meat – gooey goodness from a Desperado, Redneck, Big Boi or Sauce Goddess? Tune into A&E’s Texas inspired version of the popular Shark Tank show, Rooster & Butch, to find out. Entrepreneurs turned venture capitalist, Mike “Rooster” McConaughey and Butch Gilliam, test the character and fortitude of small business owners in ways only the Lone Star State can.

Each week the new A&E TV show Rooster and Butch (currently airing on Wednesday nights at 10pm) challenges aspiring entrepreneurs emotionally and physically in West Texas to flush out the strongest character without cracking open a balance sheet. Jennifer Reynolds, the owner of Sauce Goddess Gourmet, found out what that entails when she earned the opportunity to compete against three other barbeque sauce company owners for a shot at life-changing investment.

“Every ambitious entrepreneur is looking to live the American Dream. The four of us were lucky enough to showcase what we can do.” says Reynolds. When asked about the experience she said, “Reality TV is pretty crazy on camera and behind the scenes. I did stuff on that show I never thought I would do in person let alone on national TV. To let go of control like that was tough for me.”

As the longest tenured business owner, Reynolds had the best grasp of industry challenges and boasted the widest ranging product line of all contestants. Finding out there is market opportunity for gluten free, all natural and additive free foods surprised the wrangling investors. After trying out Sauce Goddess on their favorite dishes the duo was sold on the flavor, but was it enough for them to write a check?


ABOUT SAUCE GODDESS GOURMET, LLC:  Sauce Goddess Gourmet is a privately owned company headquartered in San Diego, CA. Sauce Goddess is dedicated to providing all natural, gluten free sauces, spices and gourmet products that can be used frequently and easily for creating favorite recipes for your family.

Summer Grilling Tips for Flashback Friday

We love outdoor and grilling gadgets as much as the next person, so we wanted to re-share some great ideas from Channel 8 San Diego. They did a segment for Fourth of July, but there is still plenty of grilling time left this year (don’t forget tailgating). Of course, Sauce Goddess is on the grilling table that Ashley put together and she points out our sauces and rubs are gluten free without losing any great flavor!

Backyard Barbecuing

The sun is shining which means it’s prime grillin’ time outdoors with family and friends! It also means tubs of ketchup, mayo, mustard and artificially flavored BBQ sauces go flying off the shelves. Stop the numbing of our collective taste buds! Don’t cook naked meat then try to cover it up with condiments. Instead, jazz things up with healthy and additive free spices and sauces. Stand up to the cover up!

Sauce Goddess uses nothing but the best ingredients. Providing a flavorful and unique line of sauces and rubs made with natural ingredients is what makes these products the choice of discerning grill masters and chefs around the country. Carefully selecting and preparing the food for sacrifice to the fire gods is as important as perfecting the cooking process, so using the right spices and flavors to showcase one’s art is imperative. Sauce Goddess products don’t overpower what you’re eating with extra water, added thickeners or artificial ingredients, but instead compliment the flavors. With lineups of spices and sauces that range from “let’s spice up the breakfast eggs” to “get the milk for this wing sauce” Sauce Goddess has the perfect flavor for any palate.

“My family loves the Sweet & Spicy Glaze on our turkey burgers. The kids say it’s way better than ketchup.”

Vera H., purchased Sweet & Spicy Grill Glaze

“That Sweet Heat rub is so awesome. I use it mostly for peel & eat shrimp and recently did a test for beer can chicken. I used Emeril’s Rustic Rub on one half and Sweet Heat on the other. You win hands down. There is NO comparison!!!!”

Kathy J., purchased BBQ Sweet Heat Spice Rub

Sauce Goddess spice rubs are created using all natural ingredients, which means:

  • No artificial flavoring in our sauces.
  • No added anti-caking agents in our spices.
  • No silicon dioxide (which is sand and who wants to eat that) used for anti-caking.
  • No MSG or GMO ingredients.
  • Gluten FREE certified by the Celiac Sprue Association.
  • Potential allergens are clearly listed on each product label.
  • No artificial smoke as found in many popular BBQ sauces.

Most people don’t even think to look for unwanted additives when buying sauces and spices. The only thing food lovers need to worry about when using Sauce Goddess is how much of each flavor to buy!
