Most people give out cookies and candy around the holidays. The Weeds? We hand out barbecue sauce! For those of you who don't know, Matt makes some incredible slow-cooked meat on his smoker - especially pulled pork. He also makes his own rubs and sauces. He wanted to bottle some of our favorite bbq sauce and give it to his colleagues. He insisted on calling it "Gun Smoke" which I thought was a little over-the-top, especially since he would be giving it to respected doctors.

Matt was too busy saving people's eyes, so I was the one who needed to come up with the label. With a dramatic name, we needed a dramatic label. Here is what I came up with. I was pretty proud, especially since it made Matt laugh out loud when he saw it. (In a good way.) That's a big feat, since he's the funny one around here. (Madeline is a close second.)

Here's to great barbecue and happy holidays!


  1. This made Brett and I laugh pretty hard. Great job on the label - hilarious!

    Brett would like to request a bottle of gun smoke when Matt comes out next month :)

  2. That is awesome!!! especially since you are in BBQ land out there.

  3. I remember the sauce from two years ago. Missing it. That hat looks awfully familiar :)

  4. What a fun and personal gift!
