Leftover Chicken

If you cooked chicken for last night’s dinner, and you have plenty left over, cut it into shreds and mix in chopped carrots for a crunchy, healthy twist. Then toss it in Stubby’s BBQ sauce and serve on a bed of lettuce, sandwiched between two tasty buns. For extra flavor, add mayo to one side of the buns.

BBQ Pizza

If you have been grilling a lot of meat and vegetables during the summer months, you’re bound to have plenty of leftovers. Grab your leftover veggies, whatever they may be, and mix in black beans, tomato, and corn. Add BBQ sauce to premade or homemade pizza dough in place of traditional pizza sauce, then top it with your black bean and veggie mix. That’s a pie you will make more than once!

Pork Sandwich

If you don’t want to spend too much time on a meal, grill onions, and pork tenderloins, then mix them in our sauce for a delicious pulled pork sandwich. The sweet fragrance of our BBQ sauce will transform your sandwich into the extraordinary. Pair this with fries or chips and a salad. It’s a perfect simple dinner that doesn’t sacrifice taste.

Buffalo Burger

Add a sweet flavor to your buffalo burgers by drenching them in our Arkansas barbecue sauce. If you can’t find bison at your local grocery store, you can substitute for 90% lean ground beef, which won’t skimp on flavor.


You can also enjoy a completely vegetarian meal. For a healthier, light dish, add grilled BBQ portobello mushrooms over succotash. The meaty texture from the mushrooms creates a perfect meat substitute. This dish will taste good when paired with cornbread and a hearty salad.

Baked Beans And Sausage

Here is a meal you can enjoy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. By adding collard greens, you make the dish heartier and more nutritious. If you’re enjoying this at breakfast with coffee and scrambled eggs, use breakfast sausage. For lunch and dinner, we recommend using chicken sausage.

Portobello Quesadilla

Here is another vegetarian spin using portobello mushrooms. Make sure they are chopped and pan-fried before smothering them in BBQ sauce. Cook them with onions and spices for extra flavor and this becomes a tasty filling for your quesadilla. This will taste wonderful with guacamole and coleslaw on the side.

Fried Chicken Tenders

Although it’s highly recommended, you don’t need to smother our sauce in everything. You can also use it as a dip to subtly complement a delicious appetizer, like boneless chicken tender breasts that are crispy and fried to perfection. These fried chicken tenders can be used as an appetizer or as a meal when paired with vegetables. No matter how you enjoy it, make sure to have our sauce on the side!

Tofu Sandwich

If you’re vegetarian and can’t enjoy a pulled pork sandwich, then you can pair our sauce with tofu for a BBQ tofu sandwich instead. When cooked properly, even if you’re a meat eater you will enjoy this sandwich. Don’t forget to add coleslaw, pickles, and onions along with the sauce. 

Slow-Cooked Baked Beans

Since baked beans are making their second appearance on this list, it goes without saying that beans and BBQ make a perfect couple. When you slow cook your baked beans and add smoked ham, sauce, and some of your favorite seasonings, you will have a dish that’s perfect for a neighborhood potluck.
