From the moment Outta The Park® BBQ Sauce was first created in our family’s kitchen, we knew we had a homerun on our hands. With ribs on the grill, my husband Scott set out to make his typical homemade sauce but this time he was inspired to “use up” some extra ingredients we had on hand. That night it was fresh ginger and jalapenos, and I was very skeptical about the meal that was to come.
But to my surprise, the sauce was extraordinary, and by my third bite I grabbed a pen and made Scott detail what he did to make this flavorful sauce. Those were the best ribs any of us had ever tasted, and with the recipe in writing, I was thrilled for him to make the same sauce again. But would it be as good?
The answer was yes! Over time as each batch of Scott's sauce came out just as delicious as the first, the idea that we needed to share this sauce with others continued to grow. In 2009 things came together. With help from friends we came up with a cool name and pieced together a design, logo and humble website. We were thrilled to find a great local facility for bottling and then we were on our way.
Years later, we are still growing and finding more new fans of Outta The Park BBQ Sauces by the day. Some folks love our sauces for the care we take in using only "clean" ingredients - by that we mean there's no junk in our bottles - no chemical preservatives or additives, no high fructose corn syrup and no GMO ingredients. Other folks love the great-tasting food they enjoy using our sauces.
With half the sugar, sodium and carbs of the leading national brands, we think Outta The Park BBQ Sauce is a healthier version of America's favorite sweet and tangy sauce.
Our Original recipe has a rich, organic ketchup tomato base and we harness a zesty blend of fresh jalapenos, ginger and spices to create great flavor and a family-friendly, mild-medium level of heat. You'll enjoy our unique texture when small bits and strands of fresh ingredients permeate each bite. Outta The Park Original sauce starts out a touch sweet, moves to tangy and ends with a pleasant, peppery kick. Great on your favorite meats for sure, and also great with veggies. Our Original sauce, some folks say, is the ultimate vegetarian barbecue sauce. A winner of multiple Scovie Awards each year from 2010-2013, our sauce is sure to please your crowd.
Our Hot & Spicy BBQ Sauce came on the scene in 2011. This variety brings the heat to our award-winning Original recipe with a bold blend of hot chile peppers and our signature gingery bite. You can see the great texture of this sauce with bits of peppers, seeds and fresh ingredients. Hot for sure, but not so hot you can't taste your food, this sauce is a grand slam for fans of food with big flavors. Brush it on or just dip it, this deliciously thick sauce is winner of back-to-back 2013 and 2014 Scovie Awards in the Meat Sauce Hot & Spicy category. With this variety, we skip the butter which puts our Hot & Spicy BBQ sauce in the running as the ultimate vegan BBQ sauce.
Both varieties of Outta The Park BBQ Sauce have won the Green People Seal of Approval for the care we take in sourcing clean ingredients, and both deliver big on flavor. Our sauces are great on chicken, pork, ribs, steak and even true free range meats like venison and elk. They are a delicious condiment for veggie burgers, regular burgers and more. Use Outta The Park sauces in place of traditional pizza sauce for an amazing BBQ Pizza, and try mixing them in with stir fry recipes. On the grill, for best results brush sauce on meats toward the end of your cook time (last 5-10 minutes). You’ll see our sauce is thick and really sticks to whatever you brush it on. Use as a dipping sauce or a condiment once your cooking is done.
Great tasting food - both on and off the grill - is made simple with our flavorful sauces. With real flavor from fresh ingredients and natural goodness, whatever you cook with Outta The Park is a homerun!
