Torchbearer Sauces

What strikes us is the pig's attitude. This isn't a realistic depiction of any animal about to be cooked and covered in sauce, to be sure. But neither is it the sort of portrayal we have seen here hundreds of times.

As the evil, mustachioed master of ceremony leers, anticipating the death he is about to deliver, the pig doesn't flinch. Nor does he smile around his apple beatifically, as so many suicidal "food" animals do.

No. He's peeved. He's skeptical. Impatient. The guy in the top hat is holding up the proceedings with his patter and his "Ladies and Gentlemen" this and his "Without further ado" that.

A (slightly) closer look:









Seeing as there are no new ideas under the sun broiler, we aren't surprised that this isn't the first Impatient Sacrifice we've encountered. Surely you remember this adorable grump.

By far, the best BBQ sauce I've ever had, and without a doubt, the coolest set of labels I've ever seen. They're practically collectable!
