About My Dad's BBQ Sauce


My name is Danny Wilk, and I’m an entrepreneur. My favorite hobby is developing ideas and starting new businesses. You may be familiar with my first success and first patent: the Bandyball. It’s a colorful ball of rubber bands that was sold in OfficeMax, Target and Walmart. I also had two successfully Kickstarter projects. More than twenty-five years later, my entrepreneurial spirit is still going strong. 

My wife and I have three daughters, and we’ve always told them that if you have an idea you really believe in, you should pursue it. Sometimes your idea will work, and sometimes it won’t, but if you don’t try, you’ll never know.

A lot of people had a Covid project. Mine was trying to create a superior BBQ sauce. I tried many, many, many variations until we finally created one with the “IT” factor! We gave samples to friends and family. Everyone loved it and suggested we bottle and sell it.

My girls persuaded me to pursue the BBQ business and offered to help sell the sauce. A few months later, "MY DAD'S BBQ" was officially branded, bottled and sold!

My Dad's BBQ Awards

And . . . we're not the only ones who think the sauce is really good! Within six months of our first sale, MY DAD'S BBQ earned an International Flavor Award. Chosen from over 350 products, 16 different countries and 25 categories. Since then, we've multiple awards including 1st and 2nd Place finishes at the 2023 Scovie Awards!  While the awards validated our belief that My Dad’s BBQ is exceptional, more importantly, our girls saw that sometimes, when you pursue your ideas, good things happen.

  So what makes MY DAD'S BBQ an international award-winning sauce?

We use premium ingredients
and produce it in small batches!
This makes a noticeable difference in the taste! 




I have three daughters. When they were old enough to care, they accused me of being the "embarrassing" dad. I was determined to teach my girls that there are more important things in life than worrying about what dad did on social media. 

To hammer this lesson home, I posted some photos of me "working" at various jobs.
