Sticky Pig Barbecue Sauce claims to be Missouri’s best. While the verdict may be out on the online barbecue forums, the sauce certainly seems to have been welcomed with open arms across the state since the Anchor City company was founded in 2004.
The jarred sauce comes in four varieties: original, mustard, jalapeño, and habanero. To that end, Sticky Pig is now offering a dry rub as a companion to its line of sauces. Plus, the small-town operation has expanded its market and is now available in grocery stores as far as Owasso, Oklahoma, and Farwell, Michigan.
While the habanero sauce certainly satisfies heat seekers and the mustard sauce offers a tangy twist on barbecue, owners Quinton and Teresa Tainer say the company’s flagship original sauce is still its best seller. It’s a sweet sauce that works just as well for barbecuing pork steaks as it does for dipping chicken fingers. Visit stickypigbbq.com for more information.
