Summertime, and the living is easy. I got a chance to try a new barbeque sauce, made in Maryland. Not only does it taste good, it does good too. Here's how:

Ever get a hankerin' for a rack of slow smoked, fall-off-the-bone ribs?  What about some nice crispy, saucy chicken wings?  If either of those two questions caused your mouth to start watering then Gator Ron”s may become your new best friend.

Let's put all of the cards on the table – I love BBQ and I know you do, too.  And you know what sets apart out-of-this-world ribs and wings from forgettable ribs and chicken wings?  The sauce.

Gator Ron's Zesty Sauces and Mixes

Gator Ron”s, based out of Maryland, makes a variety of BBQ and wing sauces that will take your cooking to a whole new level! Gator Ron's BBQ sauces are available in two tasty flavors – their original flavor called Heavenly BBQ, and my personal favorite – Chipotle BBQ (try it on grilled chicken – or even as the base for a BBQ chicken pizza!).  For you wing lovers out there, Gator Ron's also offers two flavors of wing sauce – regular and spicy (don't fret, it's not overly spicy).

Gator Ron's Made in USA Sauces

Gator Ron's also makes two different flavors of Bloody Mary mix – both of which offer a quick means to recovery if you've partied a little bit too hard!

Gator Ron's and ALS

Gator Ron's was founded by Constance Griffith in 2011 after her husband passed away as a result of battling a very debilitating disease called ALS (commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease).  Connie”s husband Ron was a bit of a sauce aficionado and often received requests for his unique sauces from his family and friends.  After Ron's passing, Connie decided that she would honor her husband's talent for making tasty sauces by founding Gator Ron's Zesty Sauces and Mixes.

In order to do their share to help educate others about ALS, Gator Ron's donates part of each sale directly to the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins University.  With every Gator Ron's purchase not only will you be buying an excellent Maryland made BBQ or wing sauce, or Bloody Mary mix, but you'll also be directly helping to fund researchers who are working hard to find more effective treatments, and with any luck, discover a cure for this devastating disease.

Be sure to check back next month for the first in a series of video blog featuring Gator Ron's.  In the meantime, Gator Ron's can be purchased through their website in their online store or by visiting one of these retail stores near you!
