Our Story

Jon Poteet

A few years ago, it had dawned on me that every time family & friends tried my BBQ, the compliments flowed with each meal be it chicken, pork or beef. Sure, our guests complemented the meat but always asked one question: what rub do you use? I proudly shared with my guests that I made my own rub, which was consistently followed by, “can you make me some?”. Roughly in 2016, I started kicking around the idea, with all of the rub I had been making and giving away that perhaps ‘it was time’.


I called a friend of mine, Mr. Ken Bevis, who makes a great BBQ sauce and discussed the idea of creating a BBQ company that sold his sauce and my rub allowing more people to try both of our products. That is when Mr. Bevis BBQ Co. came to life. Mr. Bevis BBQ sounded a whole lot better to me than Mr. Poteet BBQ Co.

Over the next year, time was spent perfecting the recipe, cooking countless meals to ensure that the quality of the rub was consistent and truly complemented the meal that was being cooked. With the recipe perfected, it was time to assemble a team and make the dream happen!


Our dream of providing a locally owned, hand-made and hand-packaged rub began to come to life.


We are proud to present to you: Mr. Bevis BBQ Co. While we are starting with one rub recipe, over time we will expand our offerings well beyond but for now this is a proven rub that we are ready to share with BBQ fans across the world.


Mr. Bevis BBQ Co. Rub is a sweet rub with an ever so slight amount of heat on the back end that perfectly enhances the natural flavors of beef, chicken and pork (We have tried it on eggs, potatoes and more and it tastes pretty darn good there as well).


Our packaging was carefully thought out and designed to be simple, attractive and show the quality of the product based on the packaging materials. Mr. Bevis BBQ Co. Rub is packaged in butcher paper just like some of the best quality meats the world offers, why not package the best rub in the same packaging that the best meats are packaged in?


Upon opening you will find one pound (1lb.) of Mr. Bevis BBQ Co. Rub, carefully packaged and vacuum-sealed to ensure quality and freshness. If you have a vacuum sealer, re-seal it after use. If not, pour it into a shaker. Once opened, the rub it will easily break apart and enter a granular state as any other rub would.


We hope you decide to give Mr. Bevis BBQ Co. Rub a try!
