About Us

Who would have thunk it!

Definitely not us!

It happened that as the years progressed, we took notice of each of  our individual passions and skills. When we tried those out on our  unknowing test markets, better known as neighbors and friends, to great  success, a light went off! Thus the birth of a company that we take  pride in and the lovely line of products within the Flameworks family!
Ken is a smokin’ hot barbeque aficionado. He brings his Southern  American BBQ experience north of the border to us Canadians. Sue is a  savoury foodie, whose passion emanates both in the kitchen and on the  plate. Together, we entertain friends and family with our smoked and BBQ  specialties. Once the food is served, the conversation immediately  ceases and is followed by a brief moment of silence. Then the silence is  broken by the sounds of lips smacking, finger lickings and oohs and ahhs. 

Five years from the day we met, we combined our passions for both BBQ and cooking to give birth to Flameworks Elixirs!

  

What a pleasure!

The majority of BBQ sauces available commercially in supermarkets are  a combination of tomato sugar water or watery sugar with flavourings.  Not ours! Our sauces, marinades, rubs and hot pepper jelly are family  recipes and kitchen perfected. We use whole ingredients and do not add  preservatives or additives. Our products are based on fresh ingredients  that you can taste – we don’t add water and sugar is not the first  ingredient listed.


It's how we eat!

Ken is saddled with G6PD deficiency – an inherited condition where  his body doesn’t have enough of the enzyme glucose-6- phosphate  dehydrogenase, or G6PD, which helps his red blood cells function  normally. This deficiency can cause hemolytic anemia, usually after  exposure to certain medications, foods, or even infections. So for us,  most processed foods, preservatives and additives are off the menu! Not a  bad thing – for us and for you! 

Our tag line is No Weird Stuff!!

 

We don’t want food that is laden with chemicals and artificial  ingredients. We don’t think you do either. So, we offer an alternative  that is not only delicious but is free of all those ingredients that one  needs a PhD to pronounce. The end result is the ability to enjoy good  eats the natural way. For those who do not bbq, our products are oven  and stovetop friendly. Enjoy!
