Smokin' Texas Gourmet's popular line of Texas barbeque sauce, artisanal seasonings, and condiments has won five 2013 Scovie Awards including honors for its gourmet products and website.

Now in its 17th year, the Scovie Awards is the world's largest professional competition for fiery foods and BBQ products. Competition for the 2013 Scovie Awards was stronger than ever, with a record-breaking 805 product entries, according to Dave DeWitt, founder of the competition.

Smokin' Texas Gourmet's awards include:

Texas Especial Steak Sauce - First Place, Meat Sauce Condiments
Smokin' Texas Gourmet won top honors for its Texas Especial Steak Sauce. The robust steak sauce enhances the flavor of beef and other meats without overpowering their taste. Texas Especial Steak Sauce has a very bold yet balanced umami taste without too much spice.

Jalapeno Honey Mustard - Second Place, Mustard Condiments
A twist on traditional honey mustard, Smokin' Texas Gourmet's Jalapeno Honey Mustard is tangy and sweet with a little heat. Rich and smooth, the Jalapeno Honey Mustard is an excellent condiment for burgers, hot dogs and brats. It can also be enjoyed as a base for sauces and dressings, or as a side condiment with pork and other meats.

Texas Gold BBQ Sauce - Third Place, Mild, Mustard-Based Barbecue Sauces
Our Texas Gold Barbeque Sauce which has a mild mustard base is perfect for those who like Carolina barbecue flavor. The flavor profile combines the great zesty sweetness of Smokin' Texas Gourmet's regular Texas Barbeque Sauce and our Jalapeno Honey Mustard. It tastes great on pork ribs, butts and shoulders. The sauce also complements smoked beef.

Spice Dry Rub - Third Place, Dry Rub/All-Purpose Seasoning For Meat
With its balance of spicy sweetness, the MSG and gluten –free Smokin' Texas Gourmet Spiced Dry Rub is a carnivore favorite at cook outs and is perfect for poultry, heartier fish and seafood.

Smokin' Texas Gourmet Website - Third Place, Full Product Submissions
Completely redesigned and re-launched in 2012, the Smokin' Texas Gourmet website provides customers an easy online shopping experience, with product recipe tips and updates on promotions and events through its integrated social media networks.
