24 May Angus & Oink alliance fires-up the BAR-B-CUE market
Launch of award-winning PITBOSS sausage range to deliver on authentic BBQ taste
We are firing-up the sausage market by forming a strategic alliance with Aberdeenshire-based specialist butchers, Davidsons, to launch the award-winning PITBOSS sausage range.
This red-hot partnership sees our two companies apply a passion for flavour and fiery barbecue food to create three types of flavour-stacked sausages to sell under the Angus & Oink brand – Beef Hotlinks, incorporating Angus & Oink’s ‘The General’ BBQ dust, a Jalapeño Cheese pork sausage, including ‘Mr Rubba Rubba’ Cajun seasoning, and the Kielbasa, a traditional smoked pork Polish hybrid that has a strong history with the American BBQ story. All sausages are gluten free.
Ready-made packs of PITBOSS Sausages, created with Davidsons quality meats and Angus & Oink’s blends of spices, are on sale to the general public from today. In the Aberdeen area, customers will be able to get their hands on the sausages in Davidsons Butcheries, while all other customers can bulk purchase online with free delivery from www.angusandoink.com.
The sausages have already won high praise from industry professionals, with the Kielbasa picking up a gold award, while the Jalapeño Cheese and the Beef Hotlinks both attained silver accolades at the recent Scottish Craft Butcher awards.
Scott Fraser, Pitboss at Angus & Oink, says: “Sharing a passion for quality products, and authentic barbecue taste, John Davidson and I quickly struck up an alliance. Although there are a variety of spiced sausages available on the market, there are very few that really pack a punch in the flavour stakes and deliver on the authentic taste of barbecue, encompassing the flavours of Southern USA. We plan to develop the range and include other hot spots of outdoor cooking such as Argentina and even South Africa.”
John Davidson, Owner of Davidsons Specialist Butchers, continues: “We have had a great partnership with Angus & Oink through Aberdeen’s CUE Barbecue restaurant, where the new sausages have gone down really well.. We were so confident in the quality of this sausage we decided to enter them for the Scottish Craft Butchers awards in early April, where the judges wholeheartedly agreed. A truly fantastic achievement for a newly launched product range that takes our latest creations of authentic flavours direct to our customers in food service and home BBQ.”
