World-famous Montgomery Inn BBQ Sauce & Other BBQ Favorites now Gluten-Free

Montgomery Inn Logo

It is officially summer (do I hear a yay!)

Many of you will be firing up grills and adding your favorite meats, poultry and veggies! If you are a fan of BBQ, you will be happy to learn the family-owned company, Montgomery Inn, has reformulated their mouth-watering BBQ sauces to be free of gluten and other unhealthy ingredients. They offer other GF items as well (keep reading!). Let the BBQ season begin …

First, a little history of Montgomery Inn, the restaurant(s). In 1951, owners Ted and Matula Gregory opened the original Montgomery Inn restaurant in the town of Montgomery, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. Matula, a talented cook, soon became known for her delicious recipe of barbequed ribs and sauce and diners traveled from near and far to enjoy them. Eventually the husband and wife team became known as the “Ribs King & Queen”! Fast forward to the present, there are now two additional locations in Ohio and one in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. The restaurant was named one of the top 10 BBQ restaurants in the US by Fox News and also received a Diners’ Choice Award (2015). Their ribs and BBQ sauce are so popular, even the former Speaker of the House, John Boehner, sent a package of them to President Obama for his 52nd birthday!

If you are a fan of barbeque and live near one of the Montgomery Inn restaurants, you can drop in anytime to get your BBQ fix, but if you don’t have one nearby, no problem, as their steak, ribs, pulled pork, chicken, pork chops and famous BBQ sauces, are also available in retail stores and on-line (in 2013 The Today Show named Montgomery Inn’s famous ribs “one of the best mail order food purchases from”). Montgomery Inn takes quality control measures seriously. “Each slab is hand-trimmed and has to pass through twelve quality checks before it reaches your table”. Only choice, fine cuts of meats are selected and are seasoned to perfection!

And the best news of all for the celiac, gluten-sensitive, wheat allergy community, Montgomery Inn’s BBQ Sauces, fully-cooked ribs, and pulled pork are GLUTEN-FREE!

Sure you could cook your own pulled pork with BBQ sauce for say 4-8 hours in a crockpot, and it will certainly taste delish, but having sampled Montgomery Inn’s fully-cooked Hickory Smoked Pulled-Pork with BBQ sauce recently, you may want to save some time and simply open up a package, heat in a pan and serve! Easy-peasy, done in 10 minutes. My family loved the pulled-pork sandwiches I served on GF buns. The package I sampled contained 2, 1 pound packages of pork, which was more than enough to make 12 sandwiches. The pulled pork was deliciously juicy and very fresh tasting (Montgomery Inn’s cuts of pork are slow smoked for several hours over hardwood coals with added spices and BBQ sauce). We also sampled slabs of BBQ Loin Back Ribs (available in various slab options from 2  to 20, see website for pricing). They were cooked perfectly, very tender and seasoned well. I let the pre-cooked ribs thaw, drizzled with the warmed Chipotle BBQ sauce and then popped them in the oven. Sweet, Tangy, Smoky and Spicy! (Don’t miss our Giveaway of the same “BBQ ribs, pork and sauce kit”, a $90 value, coming soon!)

The Gluten-free, pre-cooked, BBQ pulled-pork and slabs of ribs arrived via UPS, packed frozen in dry ice and included preparation and care instructions (conventional oven, outdoor grill or microwave!), bibs and wet naps. All I had to do … heat and enjoy (see pics at left & bottom, from our GF BBQ)!
