Default Private Labeled Rubs/Sauces

I was recently told ny someone that Head Country sauce is often private labeled as several other brands of sauce (ex. I was told Lotta Bull BBQ Sauce but I can't confirm)

Nothing wrong with private labeling as it's all about the power of the brand and customer perception but got me wondering what other products out there are private labeled.. The only other one I am aware of is John Henry's rubs under the Big Green Egg name..

Are there any other big name rubs/sauces being branded by/for other brands that you know of ?

Agreed. Private Labeling can be a great thing for everyone, including consumer.

Absolutely not!

Saves years of experimentation, cost and wasted sauce.

I guess the bottom line is, we are in business to sell sauces and rubs and not to let our own vanity get in the way of making a buck.

I've been told, but don't know for sure, that Cattleman's does a LOT of private label stuff.
