About Trifecta Gourmet Sauces

Our Story

Our story begins on a warm summer day in 1996, when Matt Trimpe had a backyard full of friends and he ran out of BBQ sauce. He had a faint recollection of his mother’s recipe and, using only the ingredients he had on hand, blended just the right combination of sweet, savory and spice. Trifecta was born.

Over the years, friends upon friends discovered more and more delightful ways to add Trimpe’s sauce to their favorite foods. It was a delicious complement to chicken, beef and pork and tasted great on corn on the cob, potatoes, peppers, and other vegetables. It added a sharp and tangy flavor to macaroni and cheese, and could turn pepper jack cheese and rolls into gourmet sandwiches. Adding a dash to chocolate sauce intensified the flavor of the rich, dark cocoa, adding just a hint of heat.

As time went by, barbecue aficionados urged Matt to bottle the sauce, and they were delighted when he did. The bottled Trifecta BBQ Sauce retained the integrity and flavor of that first sauce born in the backyard, blended to please friends. No ingredients were added to protect its shelf life; only the natural ingredients were added.

In the past few years, Trifecta has been hard at work creating more special sauces and marinades. You can easily find our sauces at many local stores as well as online. Our product line includes: Original Barbecue Sauce, Sweet Heat Barbecue Sauce, Blazing Barbecue Sauce and Kentucky Bourbon Marinade.
