OzNBones Barbecue Sauces and BBQ Rub
We will be commercially bottling our Award winning barbecue rub and our popular barbecue sauces so that people can enjoy them at home.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sat, March 23 2019 1:00 PM UTC +00:00.
Oz'NBones has brought bangin' southern barbecue up north to Colchester, CT. Run by Chris & Diane Ozmun. We specialize in authentic and artisan barbecue. Everything is made from scratch using only the finest ingredients including our barbecue sauces and our own award winning dry rub. We think it's too good not to share - in fact, our barbecue rub placed second in the National Barbecue News "Rubs of Honor" competition in the Fall of 2017.
Our own homemade barbecue sauces are no joke, either. We've got our original sauce, a sweet and tangy Kansas City style sauce. Then there's our sweet Maple Bourbon, made with superior bourbon and organic Grade A robust maple syrup from the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Finally, our spicy Chipotle Sriracha infused with chipotle peppers and original sriracha sauce has got a little kick and a lot of flavor. Because they're unlike any other sauces out there, we've been told countless times we need to spread the love - that's why we're going to have our rub and sauces commercially bottled and sold at local stores so that people can enjoy them at home. It's no small task - bottling and ingredients have to be of the highest quality and making the first run happen takes a lot of bacon, so-to-speak.
OzNBones isn't just something we do for fun (although we'll admit that's a big part of it) - we're serious about our barbecue. That's why you'll find our food truck located at the corner of Broadway and Clark Lane in Colchester serving up our tasty meats and sides, when we aren't catering or providing food truck service at private events.
The demand for Oz'NBones has been nothing short of amazing - we've been in business since April 2017 and have been smoking' the whole time. Business has grown out of Chris’ passion for cooking and especially for cooking authentic southern BBQ. We fell in love with BBQ when visiting Chris’ older brother while he was stationed in the Army in Tennessee over 20 years ago. Chris learned the craft of smoking and barbecue, and has been perfecting his recipes since then. All of our recipes are his own original creations, and everything is made from scratch using fresh ingredients. Some say he's a bit obsessed; we won't argue with that.
Chris spent his high school, college and grad school years working in restaurants and in the food industry. He started as a bus boy then worked as a waiter, bartender, and a cook/chef. He took a brief haitus from the culinary world to have a successful career in school administration, but once he got that out of his system it was back to the barbecue.
Oz'NBones caters for graduation parties, birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, weddings, and many other events. We provide our food truck at several different food festivals, concerts, microbreweries, and much more. With your help, we'll continue to grow and expand, and share our home-grown flavors with more barbecue enthusiasts like you.

Risks and challenges
Getting the sauce and rub to market is a challenging process that requires a great deal of leg work , including have them tested a laboratory for acidity and other things, as well as for the nutritional and allergen information. We are working to create labels with a graphic design team. We also are working closely with the bottling and spice companies.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
