Sauce business venture
Since I'm new to this group I have alot of questions. I'll start with where we are, and where we're headed - or should I say "hope" to be headed.
What I've got here is a damn fine product - Handsome Jack Barbecue Sauce. Now I know it's naive to think I'm the only person on this board that makes their own BBQ sauce. So at the risk of sounding a little arrogant - this is some ****ing bad ass sauce!!! There, I've said it - does that make it true?
I plan on getting involved in the sauce exchange - sounds like a great opportunity to taste stuff outside my market, and maybe get a little exposure for mine. I've done a little research on the types of sauce that are popular in different parts of the country. My sauce is tomato, coffee, and worcestershire based. Rich, bold, and spicy! Sounds like an ad, I know, but that's the best way to describe it. Sweet with a kick!
I'd like to get a professional opinion from a couple of you guys, but I'm still a little paranoid about letting it get out there too much before I get my logo trademarked, recipe patented, all that ****. I really think I'm on to something here, and I'd hate to lose it to some rich ******* that can dissect the ingredients and make a million dollars with my recipe, ya know?
I'm looking for Q or smoker based websites with clipart that I can use to build my print ads.
Is there anyone out there that can help with ideas and designs for a trailer-type smoker for competitions and catering?
The "Banker" Man wanted an arm and a leg to help get my business started...
I sent him my uncle's arm (he only had 4 fingers),
my mother-in-law's leg ('cause she was kickin' my ass),
and I threw in my sister-in-law's big 'ole butt (rubbed it myself).
He hasn't called back...think the sauce was too spicy?
