One of my very best buds -we've known each other since 8th grade- is my pal Mr. Doggity. Mr. Doggity and I have gone to Chiefs games together forever, and he often sits with me in the Blowfish seats behind the Chiefs bench. His job with a major local hospital was "outsourced" two months ago. So, while he's been spinning out his severance, he decided to open a small business.

Mr. Doggity is a very talented cook, and has been a long time judge at the American Royal BBQ contests. He makes his own BBQ sauce, which is excellent. It's so good, that a well known local restaurant owner has helped him launch it for resale, which will be available in a few weeks.

It's called "Mr Doggity's BBQ Sauce" and it will be packed and distributed by La Fontanella Foods of KC -the same folks who pack Cascone's Pasta Sauce, Margarita's and Manny's Salsas, and other well know sauces and spices.

Their website is here:
http://www.lffoods.com/index.cfm

The sauce should be available to the public in May sometime. Mr. Doggity also makes some preserves and home packed pickles that are to die for, but he's going to start with the sauce and see if it flies. They're going to work on specialty food shops first, then see if they can get into places like Price Chopper and Hy-Vee. It's a long process. His stuff is very good, I highly recommend it.

Mr. Doggity's brother Dart is a well known design artist in Austin, TX. He designed the logo:

I'm very happy for him. Lots of good people have been thrown out of work over the past couple years, and are scratching to find new ways to make a living. I hope this works out for him. It's a great product.

As for dogs, Mr. Doggity's German Shepherd Jack has his own Facebook page. He has more Facebook friends than I do!

Well, I hope so too but realistically it's not gonna fly unless it gets picked up by a national distributor. A top 3 placer in sauce at the last 3 or 4 Royal events is a friend of mine and he has his sauce in all the stores. It's my favorite sauce. I dumped Blued Hog for Firebug but he still doesn't make a living at it. He's been bottling and distributing commercially for about 3 years.

Us Springfieldians are always attending KC bashes, and the KC folks of course can't stay away from our well attended get-togethers. It's a veritable pipeline for Firebug and soon to be Mr. Doggity's BBQ sauce.

I can't wait to try both.

I loved Blues Hog, which is available here, so it can only improve from there.

If Dinny would quit messing around with ground hogs and cease with his amorous encounters with popcorn we could taste some of his as well.

It's known as "mining the miner." I guarantee the bottler and distributor make money or they would have dropped that sauce for another.

I'm very familiar with that deal. I guarantee the bottler of our 3 Buddeez brands makes 20%, and I know for a fact that the distributor makes another 20%. We, on the other hand, barely make any after shipping, etc. It is a volume game for sure

Doggity Update: Second product added to the line, Doggity's Hot Sauce. This lifted from a Mr. Doggity email I got yesterday:

"The hot sauce is ready! It's in the style of the Caribbean sauces that you find on every diner's tables throughout the West Indies. The big brands there are "Country Boy" and "Delish". They are a blend of mustard, smoked jalapeno, habanero and fruit - usually mango. Mine is made with mustard, chipotle, habanero and pineapple. The hot sauce may turn out to be the top seller. I put it on the website yesterday, and when I fill orders tomorrow, it will be sold out."

You can order here:

So far his business has been doing great. Sauce is selling, the hot sauce is flying off the shelf. I think he might do pickles next.

I tried the Hot Sauce. It's hot, a little dab'll do ya. Very good mixed with some olive oil to brush on grilled chicken, or a little shot on some eggs like you would use tabasco.

Tonight I did Orange Baked Chicken with Mr. Doggity's Hot Sauce. Here's the basic:
Preheat oven to 375.

Two boneless chicken breasts, skinned. Wash, pat dry with paper towel. Get a baking disc or aluminum pan. Mix up the following in a bowl:

About a tablespoon ea of garlic powder, onion powder, Old Bay Seasoning, pinch of sea salt, pinch of pepper, couple three shakes of Mr. Doggity's Hot Sauce, 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil. Mix this all up with a whisk, and brush on both sides of the chicken.

Now... pour about two fingers of OJ into the pan with the chicken. Cover with foil, bake that sucker for about an hour. Flip the chicken at the 30 min mark to keep both sides juicy, put in more OJ if the pan is getting dry (should have plenty of liquid).

About ten minutes before the chicken is done, pull the chicken pan, drain most of the juice (leave a little) into a saucepan. Put in about a tablespoon of brown sugar, a dash more OJ, and another shot or two of Mr. Doggity's hot sauce. Put the chicken back in the oven for a few minutes. Put the saucepan on a high heat and cook that mixture down until it thickens. Stir it up often as it boils so it doesn't burn. It will render down into a brown sauce. Pull the chicken out of the over and brush it with the glaze hot off the stove.

The chicken will be tender and moist, and the glaze adds a hot, sweet kick. Very tasty.

Doggity Sauce is doing quite well, he's sold a bunch, and continues to get it into stores. Got this email from my pal Mr. Doggity today:

"Well, I just got bought out of sauce!
A guy who was in the Army Rangers in Afghanistan, and now owns a ranch in McCune, KS, just bought all of the sauce I had ready to ship. He's sending it to the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.

Maybe MrDoggity's sauce can finally win the war!"

Frickin HyVee here in Lawrence quit carrying it. I don't use their sauce (Hot or regular) as a dipping sauce or final product on my meat. However, I brush it on anything I grill and when mixed with hamburger, it creates one fantastic tasting burger.

Quite a few Hyvees were carrying it here in KC. But I haven't seen it in any of the stores I previously saw it in as of 6 months ago or so.

Your best bet is to go to McGonigles Meat Market. They always have it.

He should take his sauce to RSI (retail services inc) in Overland Park. We took our pickled stuff to them about a year ago. They are a food broker. They got us picked up by Associated Wholesale Grocers. AWG then has their sales team (value merchandising) out selling to store chains. They just got us into a 15 store chain in Oklahoma, and they have over 800 stores they service. He just needs to have some unique spin to his presentation, like that he judges bbq's or something to set his sauce apart fromt the thousands of others out there. Also, the margin on the product will go waaaaaay down, but, he wont have to do anything but promote it in stores.

Speaking of which, you can now buy his BBQ sauce and Jamaican Style Hot Sauce from another source online. Brand new source, which is very cool:

Anyone know how the Hot Doggity BBQ sauce compares to Gates extra hot?

I'll drop Mr. Doggity an email and ask him for you.

Doggity's answer:

"Comparable heat level. Different flavor. "

Still haven't seen the Doggity sauce. Anxious to try it. I think my Firebug buddy messed with his recipe because the sauce from the store is runny now and the first ingredient is ketchup.

I think people develop sauces like Firebug that are top notch, but eventually the originator gets burned out. After a while they have very little money to show for their efforts. It's a tough sale when the other BBQ sauce on the shelf is on sale for $1. In response, Firebug goes cheap just to make something happen with their sales.

When KC Masterpiece got bought out by Clorox, they cheapened the formula down so they could mass merchandise it. I read somewhere that Rich Davis has said that the stuff off the shelf now isn't near as good as his original recipe.

If McGonigles doesn't have it, you can get it at Jasper's at 103rd and State Line. He has a little store in the front that sells various sauces and such.

Got this from my pal Mr. Doggity. In case you're interested, he's going to be doing some custom smoking before Thanksgiving. He also has a radio show about all things KC (food, music, fun events) that'll be debuting on KCMO on Sunday mornings at 9am. Starts week from this coming Sunday 11/6. Here's the email:

"I am starting to take holiday pre-orders of smoked salmon and homemade pastrami. The price for each is $14.99 per pound, and the average is 2 to 3 pounds per package.
They will come in vacuum pouches, frozen, and will keep for 3 or more weeks. I can even ship!
Email your orders to duane@mrdoggity.com. If you want your order shipped, tell me the date you want it to arrive, and the delivery address.
I accept PayPal, cash or check."

So if you like Salmon or Pastrami, drop him a line. I'm sure he'd smoke other things for you too, just ask him.

Mr. Doggity's first radio show on KCMO was yesterday at 9am on KCMO.
You can hear the podcast here. His show is called "The Everyday Concierge." It's about food, music, fun in Kansas City. Pretty good stuff.

I don't think he's going to be in Hy-Vee, but you can buy it from his site. I highly recommend the hot BBQ sauce, and the Bajan hot sauce kicks butt, it's like Tabasco but funkier:

If you go to Doggity's site, his email is listed. Just ask his advice on the best way to do the ribs. Tell him how you plan to cook them (grill, smoker, oven, etc) and he'll give you some advice on how to do it, and when to use the sauce.

If you like BBQ you should try it. Seriously.

Shipping is not so bad if you buy a few other thing to go with it. For one single bottle of sauce, to ship from Kansas to West Virginia, yeah, it's going to cost a couple bucks.

Yeah I'm not knocking the guy or anything don't want anyone to think that, but when you'd like to try something to see if you like it then it's tough to shell out more in shipping than a bottle of the sauce costs. If it's something I knew I really liked it would be more palatable. I found the same thing when I looked into Firebug sauce...can't remember who was talking about it.

that's the tough thing about this business. People will only go so far to buy something they like, so you have to be EVERYWHERE in your advertising area. You can get out as many tweets and facebook responses as you want, but if people can't get your stuff at the store they generally shop at, you are out of luck.

That, and stores could care less about helping the little guy get a shot. Even when you manage to get into one, you get put at the bottom of the shelf where no one can see you. Not that I expect anything different, I'm just saying its a tough road.

If you have some pals in KC, they can buy the sauce from various stores in KC, then put it on USPS for you. That would save in shipping for sure.

Mr. Doggity is beta testing a teriyaki -spiced BBQ Sauce. Do any of you do asian style BBQ?

Also, he should have some more KC locations where you can buy his sauce soon. Things are going great for him.

BTW: I got a bottle of Firebug sauce and tried it. It's also very good stuff. It tastes like it has raspberry puree in it.
