Bullfrog BBQ Sauce?

shratter Jun 2, 2007 08:58 AM

I used to live in Chicago, in fact it was around 1992, and remember a product called Bullfrog BBQ Sauce that was available in grocery stores. Unfortunately, I don't remeber whether "Bullfrog" was the brand or the name of that partcular sauce. It was sweet, but made with jalepenos...

Anyone know if it still exists?

      Wonderful, delicious sauce. What grocery stores in the Fox Valley carry it?
      I haven't seen it at Jewel in a very long time.

          Well, now I'm curious! I love a good BBQ sauce. Any places in Naperville I can purchase a bottle?

        I also lived in the area around the same time, can you e-mail me an address or a phone number where I can purchase this sauce? My brother & I were at a BBQ cookoff and this was very good. Thanx in advance/JM

            Heelo, westhigh!!!!!! I moved from St. Charles to the river north area of Chicago a few years ago and they don't know what good barbecue sauce is all about. Bullfrog on ribs, steaks, pork chops, burgers, just about everything! Let me know how to buy a case! Thanks, Michael

                I can relate, as I used to buy bbq sauce by the case from Santa Fe Grill in River North on Chicago and Dearborn until it closed a couple of years back. The que was mediocre but the sauce was out of this world!!

                You would be impressed with Smoke Daddy's regular bbq sauce. They have a restaurant on Division in Chicago. order it online;


                You won't regret it!

                I saw Bullfrog sitting on the shelf at Michael's Fresh Market in Naperville and remembered this thread.

                It is, indeed, a mighty fine BBQ sauce. Two thumbs up from the mister and me.
