Rufus Teague

Rufus Teague

Rufus Teague is a family-owned, award-winning independent producer of high-quality craft BBQ sauces and rubs. Unlike most condiments that have nationwide distribution we are a single company owned by a single person for the purpose of making a single thing… the best BBQ sauces and rubs on the market. These products were born from home cooking and winning competitions, not made in a lab by some large, data-driven conglomerate that also makes shower cleaner.

We believe that the recipe is only part of the story and paired with superior quality ingredients we’re creating sauces and rubs that are the best our bottles can hold.



What started as a passion for the best in Kansas City barbecue has led to an entire line of competition-tested, award winning sauces and rubs. Established in 2004, Rufus Teague is now distributed nationwide and internationally for retail and foodservice. Founder, John McCone, insists each product be made with the finest ingredients and be as healthy and delicious as each bottle can hold. Products are proudly Non-GMO verified and Gluten-Free. Why? Because Rufus always knew, “Good sauce makes bad barbecue good and good barbecue gooder.”
