Laurie talking about Jordan's General Store
I always knew I was going to have my own business but was just not sure what. I wanted to honour my roots with a superior small batch consumable product with a quality worthy of our motto "A Solid Tradition".
It needed to be pint sized for a single person to have fresh sauce to the end of the bottle yet big enough for a family of four to have enough for several meals. And be versatile- not solely as a dipping sauce but okay to grill with it if you chose to.
Oh, and it had to tuck into the frig without hogging all the shelf space. Thus, the 8 oz Stout bottle was chosen.

In the Canadian farm family tradition
Straight from Laurie Rowe's kitchen in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, these small batch BBQ and dipping sauces take you back to a simpler time. Laurie broke into the market in 2017 with Maple Campfire an old family recipe that conjures up the outdoor feel of canoe trips and trail rides. Hard on the heels of that success came Smokey Smokey, Mrs J's, Piquant and her new High Class-Lo Carb offering for the health conscious.
An attractive glass bottle big enough for the family yet small enough to tuck into the fridge easily.
