With exceptional spice and flavor and no artificial ingredients, Uncle Dougie’s has been offering up a broad range of 100% natural products for years.
The company’s Founder, chef and foodie, Doug “Uncle Dougie” Tomek is a veritable grilling icon with serious BBQ credentials. Doug and his products have won the prestigious American Royal World Series of BBQ (ARWSB) in BBQ mecca Kansas City. He’s been cooking BBQ and making marinades, hot sauces, rubs, and cocktail mixes for more than two decades—the perfect cross-promotional complement to ribs, wings, chops, and more.
“My mission going back more than 25 years has been to supply our customers with great tasting, 100 percent natural, gluten-free, GMO-free, lower sugar, lower salt, NO-CRAP stuff,” Doug tells me. “I did it for my kids, family, and friends. Sourcing out the best possible ingredients available and using only California vegetables, I wanted clean, readable labels that everyone would understand. People are starting to read labels with more concern and moving away from artificial ingredients, additives, and chemicals!”
Uncle Dougie’s product lines offer low in sodium and sugar, gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. All Uncle Dougie’s offerings have:
Uncle Dougie’s award-winning line BBQ sauces and marinades, which provide all the flavor of leading brands—with only a fraction of the sugar, sodium, and calories —are available in distinctive high-graphic packaging, sure to resonate with consumers and drive repeat purchases.
Another category Doug went after was the cocktail mix. Bad Bloody Mary and Margarita mixes being sold and served in drinks across the country were loaded with sodium, sugar, and other additives. Uncle Dougie’s applied their “No-Crap” approach and, with fresh California tomatoes and the finest ingredients, created the company’s award winning Bloody Mary mixes—with Rich N' Spicy (an NASFT Outstanding Beverage Award winner) and milder versions.
Doug's son, Jamison (the mixologist), recently created a fresh-pressed Real Handcrafted Margarita Mix, with less sugar than the current premium mixes available. Both the Bloody Mary mixes and the Rockin Rita Margarita Mix have won numerous blind tasting awards from mixologists nationwide.
The company’s sauces, marinades, and other products are available throughout the U.S. and Canada, through arrangements with the manufacturer’s manager CJ Produx on the West Coast, and to consumers through major retailers including Whole Foods, Albertsons, Sobeys, and Loblaws.
