Small Business Spotlight - Bad Byron Chism - "A Little Butt Rub Makes Everything Better"

on

Bad Byrons Butt Rub - Barbeque Seasoning - Manuel Chavez PhotographyOur small business spotlight for the month of May is on one of our favorite local entrepreneurs Byron Chism, the creator of Bad Byron Butt Rub as well as many other great products.

He created Butt Rub in the Spring of 1997, shortly after moving from Texas to the Florida Panhandle. At the time, Byron had just graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and was cooking professionally. Butt Rub was first sold at Cocoon's Fine Foods in Seagrove Beach, Florida on May 31, 1997.

 

Byron Chism And His Dog Jake - 2005 Grand ChampionTo help market his creation, Byron began competing in BBQ competitions across the country, emerging as one of the top 10 KCBS cooks for 7 consecutive years. Today Byron and the team compete all over the world! The team includes his dogs Jake and Body whom he takes almost everywhere he travels including the print shop! (Pictured here are Byron and Jake busy at a competition)

With the competition awards, TV exposure, product awards and internet marketing, Butt Rub has steadily become a household name and is available at retail stores all over the country!

Byron has also created many other products over the years and we are honored to have been a part of the design process. His Jubilee Seafood Seasoning is one of our personal favorites; it is perfect on all of our local Gulf Seafood.

He is working on a new Honey right now! He also has a Pepper Sauce, Unca Dukes Geaux Jus and Arabic Gold Coffee!

Butt Rub® and his other products are available online as well as many retail stores and local shops. You can find recipes using his products on Byron's website.

Byron also does instructional videos on his YouTube channel.

We are honoured to have been a part of the Butt Rub history the past 17 years and look forward to future endeavours with Byron and his crew!
