Jim’s Own offers consumers high quality, gluten free sauces. The range includes Mild, Hot, Mustard, Smokey, an Eastern NC style Vinegar and Sticky Q – a dark, velvety, thicker sauce made with real molasses.

I have a quart jar of Jim's Mustard sauce and I really love it!

Stephanie N, Broomfield Colorado

Thanks for your help. I am a southern girl living out West and I need my bar-b-que fix. My friend brought me a bottle back from NC over the summer and I have been rationing it so it will last. I would love to be able to get some more!

Scott S. in Asheville, NC

I received the free Smokey Rub yesterday. Thank you so much! I have the Mild Rub now and used it last week on some ribs which were awesome. I can't wait to try the Smokey!

MJ in Charlotte, NC

Love it, so good, had a sample at Costco and purchased a large bottle, then last week at my local Harris Teeter I got the one with the mustard, all I can say it good job, it's delicious. Tonight I'm making my chicken legs with it, last week had it on my fish, excellent.

Used some of your Smokey rub on some baby back ribs this weekend and cooked on my Big Green Egg. Loved the flavor! Would love to try out other sauces and rubs. Used the same Smokey Rub today on a 9.5lb Boston Butt. Taste turned out beautifully!

Tim R in Mebane, NC

Killer ribs, with Jim's rub and sauce. If this isn't heaven, I damned sure must be close.
