True Made Foods, Inc.
A REAL BBQ CUT THE SUGAR and KEEP THE FLAVOR….
The barbecue is American national cuisine. There should be no argument in this.
But over the past fifty to sixty years, traditional American barbecue has been attacked by one ingredient – SUGAR. Sugar is a powerful ingredient. Large amounts of sugar disrupt dopamine levels and create a sort of ‘sensory high’, masking all other flavors and sensory inputs. A high sugar rub or sauce allows the most barbecue enthusiast to compete with a skilled Pitmaster. Skilled Pitmasters use carefully balanced spices, well-selected cuts of meat, and years of flame-keeping skill to create the perfect barbecue. High sugar levels just cover all of that hard work.
In essence, sugar is a “barbecue killer.” And today, the average barbecue sauce found in the grocery store matches that bill. The average barbecue sauce has 15 grams of added sugar per serving (2x TBS), or one ounce per ounce, that’s more sugar than soda. These barbecue sauces not only kill a good barbecue, thanks to high rates of obesity and diabetes, they are also killing Americans.
Really made foods and legendary Pitmaster Ed Mitchell created the first line of barbecue sauces that respect the heritage of American barbecue. Their six barbecue sauces are all authentic regional recipes: a tribute to the American barbecue tradition. Yet, these are also sugar-free or low-sugar recipes that are naturally sweetened with real ingredients, like locally grown vegetables. In 2017, Ed was diagnosed with prediabetic and took a close look at how sugar had slowly crept into his kitchen over the years.
By partnering up with True Made Foods and launching these amazing Authentic Whole30 and Paleo Certified BBQ Sauces, now available at Sprouts, Kroger and Whole Foods nationwide, Ed is honoring True American BBQ and keeping his family healthy and healthy. of his community. Ed and True Made Foods are taking barbecue back to its roots.

Branch BBQ Sauce
A new gravy business coming out of Cleveland, Ohio that no one saw coming.
Branch barbecue sauces are a new staple in the kitchen.
Branch BBQ sauce was created by four friends during a Sunday Funday volleyball tournament. The colder drinks were flowing all day, when they came up with the idea of mixing BBQ and Ranch. After extensive research and the development of flavor profiles, Branch BBQ was created.
The recipe is one of a kind, using its proprietary formula for barbecue sauce with a complementary blend of creamy ranch dressing. Since they started just under two years ago, they have grown to 290 stores, while continuing to grow.
Branch has now expanded to five flavors:
- Branch, the OG BBQ Sauce: BBQ combined with ranch dressing
- Branchero BBQ Sauce: A little sweet with a little spiciness; a spicy version of Branch
- Cherry Peach BBQ Sauce: Sweet notes of cherry and peach mixed with Rosellini Apple Ale from Platform Brewery
- Thai chili mustard: tangy and spicy whole grain mustard, also mixed with Platform Rosellini Apple Ale
- Fieldhouse Mustard: A perfected stage mustard blended with Platform Brewery Haze Jude.
Each of the sauces and mustards creates a unique flavor profile that isn’t limited to barbecuing. They can be used in anything from brunch to dessert.
Agency managers all come from totally different backgrounds, but each plays an important role in the growth of the business. Everyone has a role to play, and when the job is done, they get together to cook and drink beer. It’s a great way for them to come up with more crazy ideas that let them play the role of a mad scientist, and then hopefully bring those ideas to a market near you.
Branches can be purchased at any of their 290 stores or on their website listed below. Don’t forget to follow them on social networks for recipes, cooking videos and especially all the nonsense.
