Here’s our first submission from Ernie from the Kansas City area. He sent this to me just a few minutes a go:
You can out this on your site as a review if you want or not, but I wanted to relay this story from yesterday to you.
I have been using your products at home for the past 6 to 8 months and have been very impressed with the flavor profile of both your Smokin’ Sauce and AP Rub. Yesterday was the first time that I had used your products at a family function for my entire family to eat. It was Mother’s Day and I fixed ribs for my entire family (15 people) and used both the AP Rub and Smokin’ Sauce. After I pulled the ribs from the smoker, I could not slice the ribs fast enough. People were gobbling them up. While I was sitting down to eat people we complimenting me right and left about how fantastic these ribs were. My sister was even trying to guess the ingredients of your sauce. We went thru 3 and a half slabs of ribs and I sent the rest home with my Mom as a Mother’s day present. They have always liked my BBQ but I think they were more impressed yesterday becasue of the Drapers BBQ products I used. Thanks for great products.
That story is totally true Shane. They went nuts over your sauce especially. (except my Dad) he did not even try it he went to KC Masterpiece his old standby. Have a great trip to MIM and bring back some hardware.
Thanks Ernie for taking the time to send this and I’m glad we had the honor of being a part of your Mother’s Day present. We are proud to be included in your family time this year! It’s ok if you give Dad some Draper’s for Father’s Day lol.
Here is one we just got in from Don from St. Louis. Don has been a long time fan of our products and we are glad to be apart of his competition flavor profile!
Shane: Just a quick note about your BBQ sauce and AP Rub. I found out about your product from the BBQ Brethren forum. Decided I wanted to give it a try and since your product is not available at any stores in St Louis. I ordered it from your web site.
I’m always looking for something a little different then what is being used here in the St Louis area, but wanted it to be a slight difference something that was just a little different than the normal flavor profile everyone is used to here in St Louis.
So I tried it out on the family with 3 slabs of ribs. Had the Brother in law over since he is a member of my BBQ team mostly because he loves my ribs and likes to eat free. I didn’t tell anyone I was trying something new. I wanted to see if they could tell a difference and what they thought since everyone was used to my standard BBQ and loved it.
So after everyone sat down and started to eat I was just watching and waiting to see what they would say. It took about 2 ribs before my BIL said I didn’t think you could get better, but these may be the BEST RIBS you have every cooked. The only difference in these ribs and what I always cook is these had your AP Rub and your Sauce. So it passes the family test, there was no left overs to send home with anyone, just a pile of bones.
So I thank you for your product and I am looking forward to using the rub and sauce in my next contest. Hopefully the judges will find it to there liking as well. I let you know. Thanks again
Great story Don! Appreciate you putting us to the test and sticking with us since the beginning man!
Just got this email from Carl Williams better known as Smokin’ Willy on the GBA circuit. Carl has been using our products for a couple of seasons now, it wasn’t until the beginning of this year that he emailed me cluing me in on just how well he has done with Draper’s products. Needless to say it was a no brainer to get behind him and sponsor him.
Hi Shane,It goes without saying that Draper’s Smokin’ Sauce and the A.P. rub are head and shoulders above anything else out there on the market.Since we began using the Draper’s BBQ products our competition scores have soared. In September of 2011 our team won the 2011-2012 GBA Georgia State Championship. 2012, we are off to a great start. So far this year we haven’t had a grand championship, but have had several 1st and 2nd place finishes and in most competitions finished in the top 10. Were currently ranked 8th in the GBA top 10 team of the year.The Moo’d Enhancer Beef Rub is also a definite winner on Brisket. I even used some of the Moo’d Enhancer in my Pork injection. Great Stuff!Smokinwilly Squealer’s Championship BBQ Team owe our success to Draper’s BBQ and proud to have the Draper’s BBQ family as our sponser.Carl Williams, aka Smokinwilly!Thanks for the banner!…Looks good!
I tried many sauces before I won a bottle of Drapers Smokin’ Sauce. I thought enough of it to buy myself a gallon and am looking no further. When I tried the Moo’d Enhancer for my brisket,the level of flavor went up like a skyrocket and is now being used for everything beef at my house. I use Draper not because they are my sponsor but because I personally like the products. Marsh Pickett Jr. Love Me Tender BBQ
Love the rubs and the sauces that it has pushed my BBQ to the next level. I cooked for 80 at work and they said best ever then next week used in my first competition were I took 3rd place chicken and 4th place brisket with a 7th overall. Attached pictures of my boxes where I used AP rub on chicken and moo-d enhancer on brisket followed by your sauce. Not bad for my first BBQ Comp. Cannot wait to try your new competition glaze.
I would say those are results that anyone could appreciate! Great job Chris and congrats on the success!
