In My Own Backyard {A Review of Best Boy & Co.}

Ya'll know how much I love finding new products to try in my kitchen and then share with you. Now sometimes they are ones that I discover on my own, others are from companies that seek me out, and then other times they are a result of connections I've made in this fabulous foodie community I'm so lucky to be a part of; and that is the case today.

When my good friend Heather over at Basilmomma started talking about these wonderful sauces she had discovered right here in our own Hoosier state, I was very intrigued. So when she came to me with the opportunity to try them myself, I jumped at the chance. But little did I know they were coming right from my own backyard!

Best Boy & Co. from Roanoke, Indiana (literally about 25 minutes from my house)  is committed to making the best sauces using the best ingredients. All of their products are all natural, plus (and here is my favorite part) ALL of their proceeds go to charitable donations!! One of these being Doctors Without Borders, which is a charity near and dear to my heart! Having used to work in surgery, I had the pleasure of working with a plastic surgeon here in Fort Wayne, who through Doctors Without Borders, fixed hundreds of cleft palates for children in under privileged countries. I saw his miracle work first hand and know what these kind of contributions can lead to.

It is their goal to produce the best food possible, while having a positive impact on the world. So I'm honored to be introducing you to not only great foods, but a fantastic company!

When I received my sample box in the mail, it included a few of their tasty offerings:
-Original Chocolate Sauce
-Bourbon Caramel Sauce
-Java-Nib Spice Rub
-Carolina Barbecue Sauce

There were so many possibilities of what I could present to you, but I decided to use the Carolina Barbecue Sauce in a new fun grilled application! Sure pulled pork would be the obvious, but I decided on a new twist instead. 

These kabobs are not only easy to make, but super fun to eat! Let's face it...if it comes off the grill on a skewer, it only tastes better! The rub and the sauce compliment each others so well leading to flavorful, tender and succulent meat. The Carolina Sauce is a mixture of mustard, vinegar and beer, leading to an authentic Carolina BBQ experience!

Be sure to check out Best Boy & Co. on Facebook  and follow them on Twitter for more information, and to stay up on all their latest news! And if you live in Indiana, keep your eye out for their products, or log on to their website to shop today!

Carolina Pork Kabobs
2 lb. boneless pork tenderloin, cut into large bite sized pieces
1 TBS + 1 tsp paprika
2 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1/2 tsp. onion powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. Best Boy & Co. Carolina Barbecue Sauce, plus extra for dipping

Place pork in a large bowl. In a small bowl combine paprika, sugar, garlic salt, ground mustard, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix well. Pour over pork and using hands rub meat well, coating with spice mixture. Cover and chill for 5-6 hours. Remove from fridge 20 minutes before cooking, allowing meat to come to room temperature. Add oil to meat and mix well. Skewer meat.  Preheat grill to high. Spray with cooking spray. Lay skewers on grill and sear for 2 minutes on all sides. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. The last 10 minutes of cooking baste kabobs with sauce, turning after each. Serve with extra sauce for dipping on the side.
