The OKB Southern-Style Barbecue Sauce Hits Every Note

The OKB brings sauce back to it's origins and makes your food and mouth happy. 

If you had been traveling through Kentucky during the late 1800s and early 1900s, you may have had your first taste of true southern-style barbecue sauce. A small BBQ shack called Bowe's Bar-B-Q had become popular in the region for it's amazing BBQ, so much so, even the Pony Express deliberately stopped there to eat.

In those days, ingredients were fresh and natural which probably lended to its great flavor. Since then BBQ sauce has transformed a lot. To the frustration of many enthusiasts, the sauces available on grocery store shelves today are highly processed and not much more than ketchup with a smokier flavor and a lot of sugar and salt. 

A comparison of national brands shows many of them have high levels of sodium and sugar, which is fairly common among condiments in general. In fact, nutritionists caution that excessive sodium and sugar consumption comes from hidden food sources, condiments being one of them.

The good news is there is now a better option. The Original Kentucky Barbecue Sauce, known as The OKB--store on Treatmo, is the same recipe from Bowe's Bar-B-Q in the 1800s. Not only is the flavor of an original southern-style sauce, but the founders have kept all of the natural elements, meaning no processed ingredients, no corn syrup, and zero cholesterol.

Even better, the sodium and sugar levels (per 2 Tbsp) are wonderfully low and much improved compared to the products you'll see on supermarket shelves, so you can be generous with using it in your cooking or grilling without the added worry. The table below shows just how much simpler the ingredients are in OKB.

You're entire family will enjoy The OKB sauce on everything from eggs for breakfast to grilled swordfish or ribs for dinner, and veggie skewers too. It's tangy flavor comes in three heat levels: Original, Medium, and Hot.
