Buddy, now that I think about it Bill's Food Center in Oregon, WI would be a good fit if you're not already on the shelf there.  Bill's is an IGA affiliate and even though Oregon proper's only about 6500 people it's a well-stocked store with a variety of items one might not necessarily expect to find in a small-town grocery.

Sighs..............I went to my newly opened chi-chi meat market today to get some of their uncut Applewood bacon that I now love (out) and pick up what I thought I had seen one time..............Roadhouse Sauce.  alas, it turns out it was Chubby's BBQ sauce that I had pictured in my mind..........not to be confused with Emmitsburg.........SO........Maybe I'll pick up a btl of Chubby's yo bring to tom as a prezzie.....but I'll order my Roadhouse on line.  Maybe I'll bring Tom both!

Re:Roadhouse BBQ Sauce -- WOW! 2014/05/21 15:56:41 (permalink)
Lots of activity here lately and I've been too busy too respond.  I'm getting my act together and taking it on the road to Cleveland this weekend (details below), but I thought I'd take a moment to answer some recent posts.
 
Mosca and Ed Face, I seem to recall our Rochester, NY distributor (Olbro Co.) approaching Wegman's about getting our sauces on the shelf.  Obviously, there wasn't much interest at the time, but maybe we should take another shot.  Ed, if you think it's worthwhile, I might even manage a trip out your way to help make the sale.
 
ScreamingChicken, Southeastern Wisconsin used to be a stronghold for us, but changes in the grocery business and distribution have weakened our position a bit.  Both Bill's in Oregon and your Piggly Wiggly carried our sauces, but I'm not sure what their status is now.
 
Our Cleveland demos start tomorrow at a series of Heinen's stores through Sunday.  Here's the schedule:
- Heinen's; 8482 E. Washington St.; Bainbridge, OH; (440) 543-5166
- Heinen's; 402 Center St.; Chardon, OH; (440) 286-5484
- Heinen's; 30849 Pinetree Rd.; Pepperpike, OH; (216) 831-8300
- Heinen's; 16611 Chagrin Blvd.; Shaker Hts., OH; (216) 921-6638
 
Demos start around noon and run until 7pm on Thursday and Friday, 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.  I'm available to meet for dinner any evening for anyone visiting the area.  I'll also have sauce available for purchase at a very reasonable price for certain interested parties.
 
More from Cleveburg when I arrive.
 
Buddy

I was in Bill's yesterday and saw regular and sweet & spicy on the shelf, so you're still hanging in there!

Buddy, I think part of the Wegman's thing is that customers also have to want it. I will make a request to the grocery manager at my branch.

Michael Hoffman Buddy, lleechef and I will try to make it up to Cleveland one of the days -- not Sunday, though. I want to try pierogies with barbeque sauce.
Both Friday night at Sokolowski's and Saturday night at Babushka's offer outstanding opportunities for Pierogi consumption.  You can either meet me at the store just before I wrap up each night, or we can meet at the restaurant, whichever works best for you.  If you've never visited a Heinen's store, I highly recommend stopping by.  And bring a cooler.
 
It will probably be just us.  Ralph Melton and icecreamchick have already said they're unavailable this weekend but are planning to make the trip in June.  Word on the street is, buffetbuster is looking for Dorothy and Toto somewhere in Kansas.
 
Stay in touch!

Buddy
 
P.S. Mosca, thanks so much for your interest and support!  Hope they welcome you with open arms at Wegman's.

Davydd, you know you're my friend and we loved our visits to the Twin Cities, but there was no "Minnesota Nice" in the way our distributor and Lund's/Byerly's handled us.  After more than 15 years of doing business together, including two to three trips every summer to do demos, we were pretty much screwed out of our shelf space by a greedy and unethical distributor, then abandoned by the store when we turned to them for solutions.
 
In spite of all that, I'd still go back if given the opportunity.  We loved Mpls/StP and I wish we had a reason to return.  Between the Burgers at Lion's Tap, the Tea Smoked Duck at Tea House, and the frozen Vodka at Baku (oh yeah, and hanging out with you and Nancy of course), I still have enough reasons to make a return trip, I just need to find the time.

For Buddy: My real name is Robby Ade and I sell for Olbro, Ed Face is a nickname some of my friends call me.   I met you in Chicago some years ago with Billy Olson of Olbro. We met up at a BBQ whose name I cannot remember. I would give Billy a call (585-381-9521) about his experience with Wegman's.

Buddy, we'll try to be there on Saturday. We'll shoot for meeting you at the store. Babushka's sounds great. Why the cooler?

Ed Face/Robby Ade, I didn't forget who you were (at least not since your explanation in another thread) I was just respecting the sanctity of your screen name.  I have no problem talking to Billy about Wegman's, I just got a sense that you might have some connection there that could facilitate our entry.
 
The 'Que joint we visited was N.N. Smokehouse, at one time some of Chicago's best BBQ.  Sadly, a dispute with their landlord put them out of business.
 
Michael Hoffman, the cooler is strictly optional in case you wanted to do any shopping at Heinen's.  They've got an excellent meat selection that might appeal.  Also a wide variety of unique prepared foods which would need to be kept cool.  If shopping isn't part of your agenda, the cooler won't be necessary.
 
See you Saturday!
 
Buddy
 
P.S. An important note: in checking Babushka's website for the address, I discovered they are retiring as of May30th this year.  This dinner Saturday night will be our last opportunity to experience their amazing food.  Bring your appetite!

Buddy, we're going to have to cancel. lleechef has a cold and a sore throat, so there's no way we can make it. Another time. Sorry about that. While I wasn't looking forward so much to seeing you again, those pierogies were already tickling my tastebuds.

I'm just curious, but in that picture of all the Roadhouse sauces, on the shelf above is an empty row, that stuff must be amazing, what is it ? (only kidding). I use Roadhouse all the time. My fave is Hot & Spicy, but I love them all. Mixing them in burgers is really good, also adding & toping meatloaf is swell. Anyone coming to the western N.Y. area, let me know we have some great Roadfood style places not mentioned yet in the books. I would like to meet some of you guys. I've been a fan since the first edition.

We can all hope that Michael is now busy making some lovely home-made chicken soup ( or defrosting some that was done earlier by 'the chef") and concocting a soothing drink, maybe whiskey and honey, while visions of pierogies dance through his head.
 
 
get Well!

Michael and Lisa, so sorry you're too sick to make the trip up here.  Hope you'll be feeling better soon.  I'm especially sorry because of the sudden, unplanned urgency of visiting Babushka's due to their impending retirement.  Of course, I'm not quite sorry enough that I won't be going without you.  If you're up and around before their last day on May 30th, I highly recommend getting one last meal before they're gone.
 
For anyone willing to travel a great distance for an amazing plate of Pierogis, I'll be at Babushka's Saturday night around 7pm.  According to the nice young lady who took my call this evening, be ready to wait for a table.
 
Buddy

Buddy,
Hope you had a good day.  Enjoy Babushka's.  Colds are a drag and I didn't want to be coughing and sneezing around everyone.

You're a considerate woman Lisa, although I believe the medicinal qualities of Babushka's Cabbage Rolls might have actually had some positive effect on your ailment.
 
I did enjoy my last meal at Babushka's.  I just hope it doesn't come back to haunt me.  Knowing this would be my last chance to enjoy their wonderful food, I summoned the spirit of buffetbuster and the courage of ChiTownDiner and ordered two entrees for myself.
 
After looking at the menu, I realized I'd never ordered the Cabbage Rolls, usually opting for a dish called "The Warsaw" which consists of two potato pancakes sandwiching a mound of roast pork, dumplings, and sauerkraut, all topped off with a generous dollop of sour cream.  I love "The Warsaw" and really, really wanted one.  But knowing this was my last chance, I sensibly went with the Cabbage Rolls with sides of cucumber salad (a little disappointing), and the house Tomato Soup with dumplings--minus the dumplings (too distracting from the comforting tang of the creamy Tomato Soup).
 
For my second entree I went with the Pierogi Variety Plate.  Two each of the Potato Cheddar, Mushroom Swiss, and Sauerkraut Pierogis filled plate, smothered in grilled onions and butter.  My intent was to eat half of each dinner, then pack up the rest to either eat for breakfast, or bring back to Chicago for Mrs. Roadhouse (provided she's brought home sufficient leftovers for me from Smoke/Pie Day at the JRPfeff's).
 
I can't say enough good things about Babushka's, and if anyone plans to be within 50 miles of Cleveland before their last day on the 31st, do yourself a favor and make the side trip.  You won't be sorry!
 
Buddy
 
P.S. MH & Lisa, maybe you can shoot for a June visit to the Cleve.  Babushka's will be gone, but Sokolowski's will still be there.

Buddy,
Sounds like you had a great......no, fantastic meal at Babushka's! Sorry we missed you and the food.  About June in the Cleve, it will depend on when as we are going first to MD mid-June, then up to CT.  We will make it there one of these days!

Buddy,
I used your Hot, Sweet and Tangy sauce on hamburgers today.  Great taste!  Everyone loved it.  Thanks again for giving me a bottle of this stuff. 
 
Also, has anyone ever tried Roadhouse BBQ on baked chicken?  Awesome combo.

Chicken was the second thing I used mine on, with pork tenderloin being the first.  Really, really good!!
