Our story:

We started this business more than a decade ago, way back in 2003. Our beginnings are rooted in a factory tour of the Sunshine Nut Company in Selma, Texas. At that time, I was their national accounts ingredient sales broker. During an educational tour of the facility with their Plant Manager Eduardo Alfaro he emphasized they were processing nearly twenty million pounds of pecans each year -- and, did I know that half the weight of a pecan was the meat? I said: 'so Eddie what do you do with the other half (shells)'? He said: we dispose of them. I remarked: 'you don't burn them to generate electricity and run the plant?' Eddie stopped on a dime, turned, looked at me and said: "hey, that's a really good idea." I stopped talking . . . When the tour was done, I asked if he wouldn't mind if I took about fifty pounds of shells to mess with. He said I could have as much as I wanted. I had another idea about using those shells: making smoky barbecue.

In 2018 we celebrate our fifteenth year of diligently and patiently marketing and promoting the use of 'post industrial process' nutshell bbq fuel co-products we call: Flavor-Fuel® & Flavorfuel®. We're cross-marketing the fuels with our innovative grill accessory assemblies: SmokeCage®. We invented the entire online retail category of flavoring smoke adjuncts. We are the go-to smoke flavor solution for outdoor cooking via our simple assemblies and sustainable fuels. We saved the trees as we sell the shells.

Our pioneering effort to innovate, brand and market repurposed co-products from several large agribusiness processing streams makes us unique in the world. Marketing and monetizing the true benefits derived from renewable fuel sources greatly improves the issue of nearly flavorless gas grilled foods and adds depth to the traditional bbq cooking methods of the big 'low & slow' cuts of meat as well as the 'hot & fast' items like: burgers, steaks, chops, fish and fowl.

Our products enhance traditional methods of outdoor cooking in any grill style by adding simple, pure smoke flavor via our patent applied, hand-made and affordable grill accessories made right here in Texas USA. We were recognized as 'Rural Development Innovator' by the North Texas Region Small Business Development Center as a Texas Strong competitor in the Waco innovator shootout of 2014.

We remain a rural based agri-business. Our vertically integrated orchard and processing facility operations enhance our ability to fill orders throughout the year. We support the local Farmer's Markets as a selling vendor, and sell our products online and at choice farm & ranch and small hardware retail stores. We're glad that you stopped by.
