Wolfe Rub

Well, I was trying to avoid this.........but Wolfe Rub is now closed for business. I took on a new position in August and between that, my 4 hour commute and my family, I just don't have time to run a business any longer.

This is hard for me to do, because I have a very very loyal group of customers that was rapidly growing everyday from around the world. Most of these customers began as customers, but over the year have become friends....... good friends. I feel as though I'm letting you all down, but it was just the right time for me to get out.

I have been in contact with a couple other rub companies to purchase the Wolfe Rub Recipes in an attempt to keep the recipes in production, (under their own marketing label). This would increase their current product line and sales with these proven products. It would also keep the rubs many of you have been using for years in production, although under a new name. But, so far this has not worked.

I have been contacted by an individual who wants to purchase one recipe just for his personal use and would sign all the necessary documentation to prevent him from sharing or marketing etc. This could be an option as well, but I am not sure.....

If anyone is interested in either purchasing all of the Wolfe Rub BBQ Seasoning recipes to market under their own brand name or purchase for individual 'personal' use please e-mail me at bigdaddyskins56 at gmail dot com . Any reasonable offer will be considered.

JFC....what the hell am I going to do without my Wolfe Wings now? Especially my mother who with her thick Greek accent in broken English asks me every now and then, "ELLEN!!!! when you make me those weengs???"

Ration control... *sigh*

Super bummer, Larry. Is it really necessary for you to sleep at night?

Jody and I are big fans of Wolfe Rub, especially WRB. We'll sure miss it when our supply runs out.

Best wishes in the new job.

now hold on, this ain't over yet....Wolfe rub sales account for
thousands of dollars a year....someone out there who has a little
time could probably use the extra money. Let's hope someone
steps up.

Oh man this is truly a sad day, so sorry Larry. Thank goodness I still have a small supply left, now I'll need to use it sparingly.
