Summer Update 2105

Just a few things before we get into the meat and potatoes of our update!!


We are starting to slowly all items to our Clearance section on our Square Marketplace. To find all available items at a deep discount, please click on the Square Market tab and wait just a few seconds for the page to populate. You’ll find all the clearance items there under “Clearance.”

New Retailers:

We are still interested in retailers that would like to carry our product. Please use the “Contact us” tab to inquire about how to get us on your shelves!

Phasing out:

Starting in late 2014 we saw a dynamic increase in the amount of customers who were looking for quantity in the 1, 2 and 3 pounds or more category. The sales this summer (2015) have been a reminder that bulk is a great way to get a good amount and still be able to send a friend home with some because the BBQ was amazing! With this feedback and the support of the sales, we are going to be phasing out our Mason Jar category. We’ll set up a link to all the mason items that we have in stock and sell them off at great prices.

Moving forward:

Above the Coals will only be selling shakers and FDA approved food pouches (like the ones below) via our website and also to our vendors. An official  kraft bagsannouncement  on when the new Bulk Food Pouches are in stock will be made when they arrive. The current thought is to have our food pouches carry 3/5/7 ounces in the grey pouches they you’ll are familiar with, and the 1 and 2 lbs will be in out new kraft bags with oval cut out.

El Toro Food Pouch







In Closing…

We’ll also be making some changes to the website because of the products we’ll be carrying!!

Enjoy your Summer, and let us know how we can help!

 El Toro 5 oz. Pouch
El Toro 7 oz. Pouch
Lavanero Shaker 5 oz.
Lavanero 5 oz. Pouch 
 Lavanero 7 oz. Pouch 

We have discovered that this summer our El Toro really rivaled our #1 seasoning, Signature Classic. We received a lot of great feedback about the habanero flavor and how we didn’t make it that “hot” that you can’t taste your food. We didn’t want our seasonings to over power what you are going to eat. This’s is a great time to pick up some and don’t forget to use out coupon code”NJBBQ15″ for 15% off your entire order! Happy Fall!
