You heard it here first, y’all! Krogers throughout Middle Tennessee are making two of our popular Franklin-based restaurants more accessible to local shoppers: this month, the retail grocery chain began stocking its shelves with Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and Puckett’s Boat House lines of sauces, spices and rubs that will allow fans to recreate the taste in their own home-cooked meals.
Eight of our products will be featured in the “Pick Tennessee” section across 40 stores, ranging between $3.99 and $4.99 and include our Puckett’s original and spicy BBQ sauces, a brisket marinade, a rib rub, a burger shake, a pork bbq rub and an all-purpose seasoning.
We have a hunch that Puckett’s original and spicy tomato-based BBQ sauces will reign as the shelves’ most sought-after products. The original is the Marshall family’s Memphis-style version, which harkens back to Andy’s roots with a savory sauce that’s sweet with no heat, and as versatile as it gets. Its spicy sauce suggests more of a Texan influence, with bold flavor that holds just the right amount of pepper, and sweet and tangy at the same time.
Each of the Southern-bent seasoning offerings — which includes four different shakes and rubs — carry a little bit of heat, with a healthy balance of smoke to complement pulled pork, ribs, chicken, burgers and more. In addition to the specially blended spices, our Brisket Marinade and Puckett’s Boat House Pepper Sauce round out any shopper’s BBQ needs, and include chef directions on the label (i.e. “marinate meat overnight in your refrigerator for 8-12 hours to achieve that perfect Puckett’s taste”).
