OCEANA, WV (WVNS) — Sweet with spice and everything nice: Tarbilly’s grilling sauce and rub have all the flavors you can find in good barbecue.

It is all in the name. Tarbilly’s is the creation of Bobby Collins, a North Carolina native who relocated in West Virginia.

“It’s the combination of Carolina being the tar heel state and West Virginians being called Hillbilly’s. So I took the two and married them together, and I named it Tarbilly’s,” Collins said.

The sauces are sweet and tangy, like North Carolina barbecue, but have a ‘wow’ factor that can only be found in southern West Virginia.

Their motto for their staple grilling rub is ‘whether it walks on land or swims in the sea, everything is better with Tarbilly’s,’ according to Collins.

Bobby is not just the creator of these sauces and rubs, he is a barbecue grill master that has even been in grilling competitions. So, he knows a thing or two about cooking up some barbecue.

“We’re going to sprinkle it with our rub, both sides, and let them sit, 10, 15 minutes. Or however you want the flavor to penetrate. If you want to overnight, you can do that, that’s fine. And then we’re going to put them on the grill,” Collins described how he cooks ribs.

If you are looking for some good, plain barbecue sauce, you can try their grilling sauce on just about anything. For some sweet flavor, their competition sweet sauce will hit the spot. If you are looking for a kick, try their Tarbilly’s heat sauce.

To find these products, you can visit your local Goodson’s or purchase them online here. They are also located at the Capitol Market in Charleston and the Wild Ramp in Huntington.

The best part about Tarbilly’s is that it is ‘Home Grown’ here in West Virginia.

West Virginia is a state full of beauty and talented people. It is also full of things that are ‘home grown’ and made by locals. This segment strives to highlight those things made locally.
