Not currently, but it's not a bad idea.......................

In my case it would probably be a very limited selection, it's a bunch of other stuff to haul around.

Local hot sauce, maybe the rub I use.

I tried doing some of that at the market a few years back with limited success. But now that it has grown so much it's probably worth another shot.

People always ask for it, so I'm selling my jerk wet rub and sweet guava bbq sauce at the Farmers' Market now. Would probably do a lot better with better packaging, but for now I'm packaging it in 5.5 oz plastic containers with a simple black & white label.

Customer get a complimentary sauce when they but meat in bulk too.

I do sell my sauce by the bottle $3.50 for 12 oz bottle. On bulk order I do give them a bottle no charge. The sauce has got so popular now that I go through an average of 2 1/2 case a weekend. Soon I may have to see about a co-packer to do the sauce just to keep up. Here are the flavors that I sell

Sweet Sauce ( apple base)

Spicy Hot (same apple base kicked up with crushed red peppers, jalepeno, black and cayanne pepper)

Mango Chipolte

Roxy's SC Mustard Sauce

NC Vinegar Sauce

This is in order of popularity
