About Us

Mike, the Happy Bison chef, introduced his Alaskan wife to Carolina style barbeque while visiting his family in South Carolina. Amanda fell in love with the mustard-based barbeque sauces and vinegar mops. However, once they returned to Alaska, the Carolina style barbeque sauce was no where to be found. Instead of asking her very generous in-laws to ship her bottles of sauce, Mike was told he needed to put his culinary skills to work and come up with a recipe.

After much testing and trying, the Happy Bison Carolina Style Grillin' Sauce was born in the Fall of 2016. Big Game Grillin' Sauce followed soon after. Thanks to the nudging of family members, Mike and Amanda decided to see if their product was really good enough to sell. Thanks to several successful Holiday bazaars, they both realized there was something to this dream.

By the next summer, Stampede Heat Grillin' Sauce and the Original Spice Rub were added to the list of products. Chipotle Mustard Spice Rub followed soon after. Mike and a friend took Grand Champion at the Alaska State Fair Beef Showdown using this spice rub. In the Fall of 2017, Mike decided to get back to his true passion of cooking for people, so Happy Bison started catering. June 2018 saw the grand opening of the Happy Bison Mobile Grill (food truck), which enjoyed two amazing seasons.
