You haven't had BBQ 'til you've put some Texas Gourmet to it 8/16/2011

As a country boy out of Mississippi I pride myself on knowing good BBQ. I just recently had undoubtedly the best ribs of my life!!! I usually take the time to create my own sauce for my BBQ because I don't want the general store brand to take away from my grilling skills, but this time I used some Brazos River BBQ sauce from Texas Gourmet. Those ribs came off the grill smoking, but I had no idea the real kick would be in the first bite; the perfect balance of sweet, tangy, and a little kickass spice. I can't wait to try the sauce, along with a few other items from Texas Gourmet, at my next big BBQ. Texas Gourmet you have made a new friend indeed! Hats off to Bryan! more

Best ribs ever!!! 7/26/2011

I recently cooked ribs for friends and family. Normally I have to gather up a bunch of ingredients to create my rub. As I was going through the pantry to find what I needed I came across a bottle of ""Sweet Chipotle Season-All"" from the Texas Gourmet so I decided to mix it with brown sugar to see how it would be as a rub. WOW! and Outstanding! were some of the comments people had for my ribs. I will be using""Sweet Chipotle Season-All"" as my rib rub from now on. Many thanks Bryan for an incredibly wonderful product!!! It is also terrific on rib-eyes. more

Great reviews for the Texas Gourmet 5/9/2011

I just did a BBQ for the FishingTx com group and besides the Brisket, Ribs and Chicken I fixed some of Bryans new potatoes with the Riverbed Steak Seasonings and fresh Rosemary finely chopped and they were a hit. I also did a pork loin with the sugar spice rub and it too was a hit. I also did his Japaleno Kiwi jelly on Cream Cheese and it was also a hit.\r I appreciate all the help Bryan (The Texas Gourmet) has given me and I also want to thank him for cooking with me at the HLSR BBQ this year. I hope we get to cook together again.\r Thanks Bryan more

The best cooking stuff on the planet 4/27/2011

Texas BBQ 3/29/2011

After meeting Bryan Slaven, The Texas Gourmet, and being introduced to his product line, we took the time to modify some of our recipes and include some of Bryan's products. By doing so, we were able to come up with some fantastic new recipes that helped us both in competition and catering. We have been competing since 1987 professionally in the Barbecue circuit, and with the addition of The Texas Gourmet products, we have been able to win more consistently than before. So those of you out there looking to kick up or spice up your old recipes, turn to the Texas Gourmet because they are a proven product with sweet meat barbecue of Texas. more

Great flavors and great service! 12/20/2010

Ronn who works with the Texas Gourmet could not have been more helpful in my selection of gifts for friends and family. He even had more order ready a day early! \r \r I love the helpful recipes on the website and there are some that I can't wait to try. All the flavors really can take something ordinary and really make it come alive. \r \r Thanks! more

Sugar-Cured Feral Ham Recipe 12/20/2010

I've been using this recipe for years and last weekend I cook the hams on a pig that a shot on a Hill Country Ranch. I was officially declared a Hero! \r \r I believe the hunting club members now appreciate fresh pork as much as they do venison! Thanks again for a wonderful recipe!!\r \r Kent Peters more

Love cooking with the Texas Goumet 12/3/2010

Brian coached me on how to inject a brisket and cook it up. My cookout was a huge success. The ribs were to die for. Go to his website and follow the instructions, don't be shy and add a little more garlic. more

50th Birthday Party 11/29/2010

I used The Texas Gourmet Rib Receipt for my 50th Birthday Party WOW what a HIT with my friends and family. I think my next party we will be using several of The Texas Gourmet receipts and products. We have used his Jalapeno Kiwi Jelly over cream cheese in the past personally I think his Kiwi jelly is Award Winning!!! I usually buy his Kiwi Jelly by the case and give it away to my customers and friends.... um um Good. Bryan has always been helpful.... what a nice guy. Jack Snider more

GREAT PIE 11/23/2009

I made Brians Apple Pecan Pie for my dad and OMGosh it was soooo good. It was my 1st apple pie, but certaintly will not be the last. I am all about the convenience factor and this was so easy. Great taste and texture. I would strongly encourage you to try it. Ready for the next recipe Brian..... Pros: Best pie Cons: Calorie content more

Perfect corporate gifts 11/5/2009

We needed several items for around $20 each for customers in several states, Most of our customers are hunters and fishermen. Texas Gourmet came through with a great selection and really made our customers happy. Thanks Tx. Gourmet! Pros: Quick to ship, affordable with great quality more

Truely Enlightening 12/9/2008

We extended Brian an invitation to the Diamond ""A"" ranch in Seguin TX. We had heard about all the great things he could do with wild game. We had also enjoyed his jalapeno Kiwi jelly and a few of his sauces. What we really wanted was to see first hand if the walk could back up the talk. Brian was amazing. As a novice cook myself I could tell right away that he LOVED cooking. His eyes would light up everytime he started to discuss cooking. He is not only a great cook but also a great teacher, very patient and explained everything including the ""why's"" and he has a wonderful ability to get everyone involved. We did several dishes for the weekend and everyone enjoyed the food including other guest, owners, and ranch guides. Everyone who tasted a dish would come to me and make sure that I was taking notes so that it could be somewhat duplicated in the future. I personally enjoyed the new and easy techniques of flavoring and cooking. This experience has broadened my menu many fold, just the ability to add a sauce or a simple reduction to make a totally different meal with the same basics that you normally use plus being able to cook wild game that would make it in any 5 star restaurant . I since have purchased most of Brians sauces and spices and now I look forward to cooking so that I can see how it all turns out. My mouth waters at the thought of the next time I get to cook venison wrap arounds or the hunters quick dirty rice. Brian is a person that you really need to be around. I know that any event I have in the future will include him if he is available. Where were you when I got married?? I had to settle on mexican food more

""Greatest Gastronomical Experience"" 11/7/2008

On October 25, 2008, Bryan Slaven, the Texas Gourmet, came to our Dilley Ranch and fixed a delicious gourmet wildgame dinner for 20 people! When he arrived on Friday evening, he immediately began marinating the Feral Hog Ham in a Sugar Cure for 16 hours. The next morning he began marinating the Cabrito. He and Debbie cooked all day using many of his rubs, spices, jellies and all fresh vegetables. He actually conducted a cooking class during the day, as he taught us how to use his many great products to mask any gaminess of the meats and enhance the flavors of each dish. He brought copies of his recipes for each of us. We were all amazed at how the jellies were used to make fabulous glazes! You would have never known that this was wildgame! \r We started with Habanero Glazed Quail---an ""out of sight"" appetizer! Then came a Grilled Poblano Soup---probably the best soup we have ever had! Then came the main course of the Feral Hog, Cabrito, fresh green beans, and tiny new potatoes served with a nice glass of Cabernet. To top all of this---he fixed Bananas Foster over Vanilla Ice Cream for us! All I can say is---what a treat!\r If you want a real treat at your ranch, home, or office, call Bryan and he will give you one of the ""Greatest Gastronomical Experiences"" of your lifetime! more

Sensational New Flavors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 11/4/2008

I have been using the Texas Gourmet products for several years and have not been disappointed. I have my favorites (Japaleno-Kiwi Jelly, Lemon Rosemary Habanero Grilling Sauce, Sidewinder Searing Spice and Sweet Chipolte Season All) but all the products are well thought out and of excellent quality. I have a passion for for food and have even been so fortunate to win a few awards. I have used these products in my cooking and have been developing a few new tastes along the way. The folks at the office always love Christmas as they know a TG gift basket is coming their way. more

King of Jellies and Salsas, Outdoorsman's Delight, Turns wild game into restaurant delicacies 9/25/2008

The Texas Gourmet takes your taste buds where they've never been before. None of the products bore or overwhelm with heat. I have used all of his recipes from Bacon Wrapped Shrimp to Venison Chili, and none have failed to deliver. Undoubtedly my dinner guests and hunting and fishing buddies ask for his website after they've tasted what the Texas Gourmet's products can do. As an outdoorsman, I appreciate the Texas Gourmet's attention to detail on his website which incorporates the proper handling of game, and how to prepare your favorite harvest from the field including fish, quail, venison, dove and duck. Also, send him an email or give him a ring, as he is quick to respond to your questions, and offer advice on flattering side dishes and delicious wine pairings. His passion is evident and proves true in his products. His rubs and spices bring your basic meats and veggies to life and his spicy jellies take it up another notch. I'm telling ya, I can eat this stuff on a cracker!! Especially the new pepper sauce....mix that with your oysters and beer!!!! more

The best sauces and jellies I have found anywhere 9/24/2008

Excellent jellies and grilling sauces 9/24/2008

You have got to try the Jalapeno Kiwi, its the best! We will be ordering the gift sets for the holidays. Pros: No preservatives more

This has to be the best jelly I have tasted in years!...The Jalapeno Kiwi jelly is so delightful. The Pineapple Chipolte grilling sauce is wonderful for grilling or even as a dipping sauce. 9/24/2008

The Texas Gourmet has really outdone themselves in the development of these different products. By far, this will be a present under all my relatives Christmas trees this year. more

Sending a Basket 11/10/2005

The products are amazing! I found their website and sent a gift basket of their gourmet jellies to my boss who absolutely loves them. Great products and fast shipping. more
