My name is Tim and let me tell you a little about  VELVET GOURMET;
I started this website with just my BBQ Sauces and then We expanded  it to a Discount and Wholesale Home Decor and Specialty  Items. The  making or
modifying of BBQ Sauces over 30 years ago, (
I was Born and Raised in a Small Town in  Oregon where the July 4th Family BBQ was almost as Important as
)  inspired me to make my own BBQ Sauce, because I could not find one that I really liked. They were either too thick and I could not get the flavor
"INTO" the meat, only "ON" the meat, or If they were thin enough to marinade with they had no flavor. I even BBQ'd When I was in the Army while I was
Oversea's for the guys in my Unit to have the feel of being home, and started making my own there. So I started making my own marinade and then expanded it to
BBQ sauce.
I think you will  find my sauces thin enough to marinade in and yet packed with lots of flavor. I invite you to cruise through my site and note the different flavors
and the fact that all my sauces and marinades have a very personal touch to them.   I have used and cooked with all these flavors before they are released for sale,
(my friends get a lot of free meals taste testing for me). I hope you try and enjoy my products and when eating with them let the flavors take you away!
*I recommend Marinading beef and pork for 4 to 5 hrs. prior to cooking*
* I recommend Marinading chicken overnight or even 24 hrs. prior to cooking*

<<<A NEW  addition to the  VELVET GOURMET  line is
This is a Thick and Gooey Molasses and Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce not a Marinade like my other Sauces.
