Barr Street Vendor Series: Master’s Hand BBQ
I can’t decide if its a good or bad thing that the vendor highlight for Master’s Hand BBQ is coming out after Living Fort Wayne’s Cluck or Chuck competition. But one thing is for sure, if the Wing Cup was still in play it is likely that our esteemed judges would have been sent to the kitchen to test their own fowl cooking skills with Master’s Hand BBQ sauces as the star flavor.
All sauces are gluten free, all natural and contain no high fructose corn syrup or added preservatives. But sauces aren’t the only specialty of Master’s Hand BBQ. Owner Steve Beers boasts, “We have three kinds of barbecue sauces and one sweet tangy honey mustard. (Also) an all purpose rub/seasoning, BBQ dip mix, BBQ flavored peanuts, cashews and almonds. All of our products are free of high fructose corn syrup, gluten, MSG, dairy, soy and smoke flavorings.”
Steve runs the business with his family – his wife Julie, son Josh, and daughter and son-in-law Amanda and Jeremy Gordley. The Beers family is strong in their Christian faith and this comes through in their business. In fact, it is even behind the name itself. “We are a Christian company with a passion to share the great news of Jesus Christ and share His Love with as many as possible. Our name Master’s Hand BBQ refers to God, as we like to say God is the Master and we are His hands to help others as He enables us to. We also like to pray for other’s needs, you can go to our website and share your needs for us to pray for at http://www.mastershandbbq.com/
Master’s Hand BBQ started in 2010 at the suggestion of Steve’s daughter Amanda. Steve had been making the same mild sauce for over 25 years and she thought it was time to share this great thing he had created. The business spread from there and now you can find their sauces in stores all across our region including Indiana, Michigan and Ohio and spanning as far as New Hampshire. Store locations in our area include Pio Market II, Dave Hill’s Meat Market and Jamison’s.
All of this information and more can be found on their website. You can even find great recipes for their rubs and sauces on the site. And, if my word isn’t good enough, check out their comments section. But it sounds to me like the proof is in the puddin…or should I say ‘sauce?’
Master’s Hand BBQ will be at the Barr Street Market every Saturday through September 27th.
