Billy Butler has his own barbeque sauce in Kansas City

Apr 12, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

This seems only natural for a 250-pound designated hitter in Kansas City who goes by the nicknames “Bam Bam” and “Country Breakfast”: Billy Butler has his own barbeque sauce.


Barbeque sauce in Kansas City seems like a tough market to break into, but Butler’s sauce is raising money for his “Hit-It-A-Ton” charity that helps local families in need of food.

    I wonder where he got the recipe?

    More importantly, what is the recipe? A worthy cause, and I admire him for that. But barbeque sauce can easily bury the taste of the meat. I prefer light and not too sweet, and in sparing quantities.

      Real BBQ doesn’t need sauce.

        A little vinegar-based sauce. None of this tomato-based crap.

        The quality of meats in my price range beg for tomato puree and high fructose corn syrup.

        This depends in what part of the country you are in. There is considerable regional variation in the US in terms of what is considered the best barbeque method.

        Yes, there is. And anybody not doing it North Carolina-style is wrong.

    You need to really be careful with the spacing between “Billy’s” and “hit” on this product.

      Shouldn’t be a problem, as the two words are on different lines.

      Well the onus is on the consumer to properly cook their meat to a safe temperature in order to reduce chances of foodborne illness.

    Alphabetically, this should go next to Billy Sims BBQ sauce on the grocery shelf. (Only “Boomer-Q” rocks a better ‘fro.)

    Perfect thing to slab all over your country breakfast

    Why is it so salty?
