Review of Bar-S Products

9:11 PM


Before we were ever talking to the folks at Bar-S about reviewing some of their products, we were buying them.  We're a family that's all about value --- the products we buy had better fit our budget AND taste good.  So we were already aware that Bar-S fit our lifestyle in this way.  With grilling season nearing, however, I knew that there was an opportunity to try out some of their products that we hadn't had yet, and I'm so glad that we did!  Here is what we thought of our recent sampling of Bar-S in our family meals.



Grilling is not something I do well.  In fact, I'll spare you the photos of my Bar-S Classic Franks, as they got a little bit "well done."  Don't worry.. they still tasted delicious, and as long as I turn the "dark" side down in the kids' buns, they don't know the difference, and eat every bite!  These hot dogs grilled up nicely (I like that they sweat a bit and get plump as they are just about done.)  With the typical treatment of ketchup and mustard, they went over very well at my house!

Something that maybe I shouldn't be so "frank" about (sorry for the bad pun), is how much we love bacon.  I am known for batch-cooking bacon -- frying up pounds at a time for storage in my freezer.  This makes it easy to get some out, warm it up, and put it into recipes: creamy potato soups, cheddar and bacon biscuits, and of course, breakfast burritos!  Bar-S has an assortment of bacons available for a reasonable price every time I shop my local grocer, so I don't have to worry about going home without bacon due to it being out of my budget.  My fave is the thick-cut -- it's awesome tossed into the kettle of baked beans that we put on the grill each time we cook out!  (It's perfect camping bacon, too!)  And if you're at all worried about salt, their low-sodium bacon is some of the best that I've tried!

Here is one of my family's favorite meals using Bar-S products.  


We cut up some of the Smoked Sausage and put it into my homemade Red Beans and Rice recipe.  With fresh garlic and lots of cracked black pepper, this is something that never lasts long (no leftovers!)  You can also toss a few of these on the grill when you have your next BBQ.  They make a mean chili dog.

To see all of Bar-S's products, visit their website at http://www.bar-s.com/ OR friend them on Facebook OR follow them on Twitter!  They have several exciting promotions going on, like chances to win FREE bacon, Twitter parties, and their HUGE giveaway promotion (chance to win $10,000 or instant Amazon.com prizes.)
