CattleBoyz Gourmet BBQ Sauces and Seasonings Product Review - Father's Day Event Sponsor

An award winning product, CattleBoyZ Gourmet BBQ Sauce is a special recipe brewed by a former Alberta cattle ranching family.

In the beginning, CattleBoyZ Original BBQ Sauce was developed by a cattle rancher in Alberta, Canada who did not want to mask the taste of his beef with an overpowering sauce, but enhance it. CattleBoyZ Original started out on the ranch, but today it’s sold throughout North America. CattleBoyZ Foods has brought this Albertan’s savory sauce to the marketplace along with a second flavour – Cattle Boyz Honey Hot BBQ Sauce.

CattleBoyZ Gourmet BBQ Sauce was introduced to the Canadian marketplace in 1998.
•The Ternes Family had raised prime Alberta beef for over 70 years and developed their family BBQ sauce into a gourmet quality product. It wasn't until the early 90's that the Ternes family offered the product to the general public from their butcher shop in Calgary's downtown Eau Claire Market. At this point it was produced and bottled out of Joe Ternes' own kitchen.

We received the CattleBoyz Starter Kit to review.

The Kit Contains: 2 x 500 ml Collector Glass Bottles of BBQ Sauce (Original and Sweet Chili) AND 4 x 395 gm Bottles of Seasoning (Gourmet, Smokey Southwest, Big Country Garlic and Smokin' & Grillin Rub)

Valued at $39.99

We love to cook and were very excited to use all of the products.

First off I have to say that these bottles of each are big. We like to use seasonings all the time. The ones we normally use are tiny compared to these. We could not believe how big each container was when it arrived. We were also amazed by the prize of this gift set after seeing the size of each bottle/container.

I would definately purchase these as gifts. Very resonably priced!!!!

I am going to tell you a little about each and then our review too.

CattleBoyZ Original BBQ

500ml Cattleboyz Original BBQ Sauce - Glass Bottle

 CattleBoyZ Original BBQ Sauce was the first flavour to be introduced to the market place by CattleBoyZ Foods in 1998. An award-winning recipe, the Original flavour is one of the most versatile sauces available. It works well as a glaze, marinade, dip or condiment on beef, pork, poultry, seafood and vegetables.

This sauce has a wonderful taste to it. We used it to marinade chicken and my kids used it as a dipping sauce for their chicken nuggets. I also think it would be perfect for a glaze over seafood, such as shrimp. I am gonna try that one next. I also think it would be really good with pork too. There are so many things I would love to try this with. It is so versatile that the possiblities are endless with this sauce. It was a big hit with our family. I am usually not a big BBQ sauce fan and I loved it.

They have a full recipes page too that you can view to get ideas of ways to use this product.


CattleBoyZ Sweet Chili Sauce

500ml Cattleboyz Sweet Chili Sauce - Glass Bottle

CattleBoyZ Sweet Chili Sauce was the second flavour introduced by CattleBoyZ Foods in 2002. This recipe is similar to a sweet chili sauce, but sweeter and spicier. The Sweet Chili flavour is best used as a glaze, dip or condiment on pork, poultry, seafood and vegetables. It is also tasty on beef products like ribs. (Not recommended for steaks.)

I was really excited to try this one. I love sweet chili flavored anything!! We immediately open it up to dip our finger in it to give it a try.  YUMMY is all I can say!!

Super yummy on pork and I also love to dip my french fries in it. Yes sounds odd, but so good. There possibilities are endless with this one too. I would love to try it on chicken, ribs, taco salad, fajitas and so much more. I just cannot get enough of the taste. This was definately my favorite out of the 2 sauces, but they are both so yummy it was really hard to choose a favorite.


Below you will see reviews on the 4 seasonings that we reviewed. Best of all the Seasonings are Gluten Free.
Gourmet Seasoning

Pet Shaker/Tray - 380g / 13.4oz
•A versatile blend of spices that will liven up meats, seafoods & vegetables.
•Ingredients: salt, sugar, garlic, onion, spices, red bell pepper, tricalcium phosphate, hydrogenated soy bean oil, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate

We used this seasoning on steaks and it was so yummy. We paired it with one of the other seasonings and they went great together. I usually will dip my steak in A-1 sauce but didn't use it at all with my steak. The seasoning gave it such a good taste that I didn't need anything else to dip it in.

Here is a pic of my steak. So yummy and juicy :)

A great multi purpose garlic seasoning for garlic toast, seafood and any meat. Almost has a creamy texture when exposed to heat!

garlic, sugar, salt, citric acid, spices, garlic, sugar, salt, spices, citric acid, red bell peppers, tricalcium phosphate, hydrogenated soy bean oil, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate

We love garlic seasoning and use it on just about anything. We paired this with the gourmet seasoning on our steak pictured above. They are so good together and the steak was out of this world. Absolutely delicious!

I also catch my hubby putting a little in the palm of his hand and eating it. He says it is so good he can't get enough of it.


Smokey Southwest Seasoning & Rub

Pet Shaker/Tray - 388g / 13.75oz
•Doubles as a rub and can be used on all meats, seafood, poultry, chili’s, soups, stews.
•Ingredients: sugar, dextrose, hot chili peppers, garlic, onion, paprika, red bell pepper, spices, chipotle, citric acid, caramel colour, corn starch, tricalcium phosphate, hydrogenated soy bean oil, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate

This one has a bit of a kick to it but soooo good! It is good on steak and chicken that we used in the fajitas or tacos. Super yummy. We love food with a little kick to it and this was a big hit. Loved it. I also love chili and would love to try it in a big pot of chili or even stew. That is next on my list.
Smokin' & Grillin' Rub

Pet Shaker/Tray - 375g / 13.2oz
•Specially formulated for smoking and low and slow grilling. Similar to the Smokey Southwest but with more sugar, herbs and less heat. This is meant for applying heavily to “dry seasoned” ribs, roasts, briskets and pork. The sugar in it acts as a binder to the product and holds the seasoning in place. Creates a desirable nice dark bark on the product. Enjoy!
•Ingredients: sugar, salt, dextrose, black peppercorn, garlic, onion, spices, green peppercorn, citric acid, caramel colour, cornstarch, tricalcium phosphate, soy bean oil, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate

We applied this as a rub on our ribs. Super yummy!
We cooked this slowly on our grill and it came out great and was so tender. There was delicious flavor throughout. The outside was nice and dark and a little crispy. Just like we like it!!!!
We are more than pleased with all of the items we tried. I have already told my family about them and recommened they try them out. I highly suggest all of you do the same. Summer is right around the corner and I know alot of you will be cooking out. Great time to order some so you have them.
Just look at all of the awards they have earned.
They also create custom labels that they can place your logos on. They make great corporate gifts and more.
They also offer alot of accessories too.
Be sure to follow them on:
