Handmade by Tubby Tom’s. 


Tubby Tom’s Started in the summer of 2014, when Tom made his first batch of BBQ sauce with hand drawn labels.

Tubby Tom’s did their first event at barn on the farm festival selling BBQ chicken, chip butties and curries.

Tubby Tom then worked at Kitchen Garden Foods for two years making Chilli jams. Kitchen garden Food let Tubby Tom us their equipment on weekends to make his hot sauces.

The weekends Tubby Tom wasn’t making hot sauce he spent selling at farmers markets, including the award winning Stroud farmers market.

Tubby Tom then got stocked by Harvey Nicks.

Tubby Tom now got to the point where he could no longer work a full time job and run his growing hot sauce company, so he quit his job and started making hot sauce in his kitchen.

Next Tubby Tom rented a space from Hetty of Hetty’s Kitchen (she makes the most amazing brownies).

In 2018 Tubby Tom moved into his own unit and built a production kitchen from scratch.

2020 was a scary time for Tubby Tom but after a while his wholesale and web orders went crazy.

Tubby Tom has had to move to larger units twice to keep up with demand.

Tubby Tom now employs 6 people.

Tubby Tom is living proof that if you work hard, have a vision, and self-belief you can do well.


"Introducing our Super Lean, Sugar-Free, and Ultra Bold 'Midnight Brisket Rub.' This is the darker sibling of our immensely popular Lone Star rub, now even leaner while maintaining its classic and delicious profile, perfect for creating extraordinary bark on your smoked masterpieces.

Our vision for this seasoning was to craft a robust, crispy rub that elevates the natural essence of brisket when smoked. With its robust pepperiness, smoked salt, and a medley of flavorful spices, it doesn't overpower with distracting elements.

Surprisingly, this has become one of my all-time favorite seasonings. I've used it to transform simple dishes into culinary delights, like spicing up scrambled eggs and rescuing bland snacks. For instance, I sprinkled it on a bag of lackluster cheese and onion crisps, instantly turning them into a peppery, salty, and satisfyingly crunchy treat.

Nutritional Information: Free from major allergens Vegan-Friendly

Storage: Keep in a cool, dark place. Once opened, consume within 2 weeks, resealing after each use. This seasoning is like magic dust, finely ground and may clump if exposed to moisture or high temperatures. Handle with care, break up clumps with your fingers. Enjoy the flavor journey!"
