The Lounge>Looking for suggestions: BBQ Sauce
Indian Chief 04:28 PM 12-02-2019
A while back someone on CP had recommended Cowtown's Night of the Living Bar-B-Q Sauce. I wish I remembered who had said it because I'd send you a bottle of bourbon. It was suggested as the best bottled BBQ sauce and I agree. I usually make my own sauces, but this really was fantastic.

I had been getting it on amazon, but they want $16 for 2 bottles and I found it on here, https://www.thekansascitybbqstore.com, for half the price. (And they have free shipping until midnight tonight.) Before I pull the trigger on an order, is there anything else on there that you'd recommend trying? I could use some suggestions for stocking stuffers or general gifts. :-)

Like I said, could be just a simple oversight. It happens - we all screw up. I'll give them a chance to make good. Don't need to go blowing up their spot when I can't imagine that 'barbecue distributor' is the easiest racket to make a go of it in. A guy I went to HS with had a similar but smaller shop in the northland that he had to close about 10 years ago because he had some medical bills and the margins just weren't enough to keep it up while he took care of those.

I'll see how they handle it.
Hoping for store oversight as well. Offering free shipping over a heavy buy period fails the smell taste when someone comes up with outdated shit, but from my limited knowledge the KC BBQ Store is attached to Joe's KC so I'd hope they'd have stronger controls in place. Expiration exceptions shouldn't really be happening at their level and I'd want to know if it were my sauce.

Hopefully they make it right.

Good on you for being reasonable. Most people would not.

He was pretty reasonable about it (though it seemed a little more far-reaching than I would've expected). Said they don't normally carry it but were supplying it for a restaurant that stopped using it so it looks like all his jugs have the same date. They aren't carrying the gallon size anymore so they can't replace it with a new bottle.

I'll be honest...that's a little more than simple oversight if ALL his bottles are past, but it is what it is. Like I said, everything else I ordered was fine.

He's offered a refund on it, which I could take of course. I could also see what his shipping costs are and see if he'd rather do that or just send me $30 worth of other stuff. Or maybe $20 worth since I'm not just gonna incinerate this jug or anything (It's unopened and I've used hot-sauce WELL past its sell by date; it'll be fine) so I'll still be deriving some value out of it.

What say you, CP Barbecue crowd? Should I just take the refund, discount the refund for the fact that I got SOMETHING, or see if he'll send me out some other sauces or something instead?

I'm leaning towards other sauces since the money's spent and I'm not gonna starve over $30....

It would be better for them if you spent the money in house.

I guess it depends on if you'll use the sauce if you get it. And of course if you "need" the money, which I'm guessing you'll make your mortgage without the $30.

I'd do it.
