New Florida Customer Checks In

"I just bought some of your BBQ sauce @ The Art of BBQ in St Augustine, FL. I
really just bought it because it sounded good and had a really cool name and
logo. But, it tastes as good as it looks and sounds. Haven't had it on any
food yet, but coming really soon. So if it tastes as good on food as it does on my
finger, I might have to get me a case! Thanks!!"
