Pittsburgh’s very own Uncle Jammy’s lets “the sauce speak for itself”. They feature a great variety of unique sauces and rubs. Including these delicious flavors: Smile for Smokey BBQ (sweet and tangy tomato and apple cider vinegar based BBQ sauce), Area 51 (other-worldly avocado-jalapeno sauce made with gold tequila), Hooray for IPA (tangy tomato mustard IPA beer BBQ sauce with IPA’s superior flavor). Also check out the Gold Dust (dry rub) and River City Rub (dry rub). Try all of them!
