Here at TLP, we have been taste testing bar-b-q sauces and think we may have found our favorite. Ever heard of Slather Brand Slatherin’ Sauce? If not, you need to get your hands on some ASAP!
We provided them with the recipe for our Original Slather Burger ®, our signature scrumptious hamburger, which Syndi thinks is just the ticket for Super Bowl eaters. Read the entire blog post at The Local Palate, or get the recipe right here on our website.

Prominent barbecue blogger Richard Wachtel met us earlier this year at the Fancy Food Show in Washington, DC. We had a great time getting to know Rich and were delighted to share Slatherin’ Sauce with him to evaluate.
Since then we’ve been looking forward to reading Rich’s review of Slatherin’ Sauce. Now the wait is over! And Rich, we thank you because we are thrilled that you love Slatherin’ Sauce. Here’s a short part of what Rich writes about our sauce:
“Once we tasted the barbecue sauce, we wondered what was that perfect combination of sweetness and tangy barbecue flavoring? After taking a look at the ingredients we noticed that the ingredients included Pineapple and Honey. We thought to ourselves, what a interesting but great combination of flavors. One wouldn’t think to use those two flavors together but they surely do work together.”
We would add that Slatherin’ Sauce makes a great barbecue sauce, but why just limit it to that? When I created Slatherin’ Sauce, my vision for it was as a grilling and finishing sauce that can be used in multiple ways. Our fans have told us they love it for so many reasons and have shared their recipes. Our retail sales locations are increasing every day and if you don’t find it on the shelves of your favorite Acme, Fresh Market or Whole Foods, or Kings; let the store manager that you want them to Slather It On and have them get in touch with us.
Thanks again to Rich for sharing the love of Slatherin’ Sauce with his fans and followers!

In 2010 when we were ready to have a design created for our sauces, we were fortunate to connect with Adam Lynch and Todd Turner, local graphic designers. Their award-winning design work graces our bottles and website. Now operating as Food Fight, the firm specializes in package design.
Todd notified us that they had submitted the Slather Brand Original Slatherin’ Sauce for consideration by Charleston’s Advertising Federation and then let us know that it had been selected for a prize. Off we went to the Charleston Rifle Club, not knowing what level award we were winning.
The incredible creative talents of Charleston’s designers were on show for all to see! The competition was intense, and Slather Brand won a Silver Addy in packaging.
Thanks to Adam and Todd for great creativity!
The Original Slatherin’ Sauce’s creative packaging was recognized by The Red Thread, newsletter of Dragon Rouge, billed as “the leading privately owned brand consultancy in the world with global offices and cross-category expertise.”
