About Us

Our Products

Jimbo's fine line of hand-crafted Barbecue Sauces and Rubbs enhance the taste of any cut of meat. From time to time, Jimbo gets inspired and makes a batch of Jam, Jelly, Salad Dressing, Candy, Seasoned Nuts, or whatever he feels like cooking up. Like most creative cooks, you never know what might come out of the kitchen when the mood strikes!

There is never even a hint of anything artificial in any of our products. No fake smoke flavoring, no MSG, no fillers such as sodium dioxide, no words your Grandma can't pronounce and understand. Nothing but the pure stuff! Buy with confidence knowing you are just getting the best natural ingredients money can buy.    

Our Story

Jim Rich, aka Jimbo, started winning cooking contests over 40 years ago. A resident of Tennessee for many years, in 1983, he won a record-breaking 72 ribbons at the Tennessee State Fair, 49 of those first place, for his delicious creations. His recipe for Rich's Jif Cream Cake was the winning entry in the Crisco American Baking Contest, and appeared on the Crisco can for many years. He has been featured in dozens of newspaper articles. 

After years of cooking as a hobby, with an occasional foray into the restaurant business, friends and family persuaded him that his Barbecue Sauces and Rubbs needed to be available to the rest of the world, and Jimbos Gourmet Foods was born. Now located in Scottsville, Kentucky, every product is made with love in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. 

Our Mission

Jimbo has one mission: to make high-quality food with locally-sourced ingredients. Fine bourbons from Tennessee and Kentucky, locally harvested produce and honey from the nearby Amish community, and other locally-sourced ingredients appear in our products. We are a small company supporting other small business people. 

Jimbo's Guarantee: Good meat costs big money and I will not screw up what you worked hard to buy. Guaranteed! Love our products or get your money back!


Barbecue Sauces

Barbecue Sauces

We make it mild, we make it medium, we make it hot, so you can choose the level of heat you like. Beef, chicken, pork, seafood, wild game--whatever you're cooking, we've got the sauce for you. Our products contain no artificial  or GMO ingredients. 

Dry Rubs

After you try one of our amazing rubs, you'll never want to cook another piece of meat without it! Do you like garlic? Some people do and some people don't, so we make rubs with and without. Our No-Garlic Rub is one of our biggest sellers.

Seasonal Products

Jimbo buys fruit from local farmers and makes Jams, Jellies, and Relishes from time to time. Sometimes, he gets the urge to make Candy, Fudge, Seasoned Nuts... who knows what else he might cook up when the urge strikes.
