Summer might be in the rear-view, but our inner pit masters can still be satisfied with some new barbecue rubs and sauces throughout the fall and winter.


For any barbecue aficionado dealing with the doldrums of fall and winter, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Rubs and Sauces make for an excellent way to start planning recipes and concoctions for next summer.


Dinosaur offers two different spice rub flavors and seven different types of marinades and sauces. Running the gamut from sweet to spicy to savory, the rubs and sauces are all natural and gluten free.


Dinosaur began as a pop-up eatery at motorcycle shows, fairs and festivals in the Northeast. In 1988, Dinosaur set up in Syracuse, New York. Now, there are eight restaurants, including one in New Jersey and one in Connecticut.


In addition to the rubs and sauces, Dinosaur sells merchandise like pint glasses, bottle openers and t-shirts on its online store. You can also find the rubs and sauces for sale in Whole Foods.


One bottle of sauce or rub runs $4.50. The Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Saddlebag includes four bottles of different sauces for $18.95. If you’re already well-versed in the sauces, you can mix your own case for $24.95, including six bottles of sauce.


Check out the online store.

Stress Management Tips for Dealing With Holiday Travel

While everyone wishes for a holiday season free of stress, hassle and glitches, we all know this isn't a perfect world and something is bound to go wrong, especially when our holiday plans involve travel. Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for travel and that means plenty of opportunity for something to go awry. How we handle those bumps in the road can make or break us, especially when we are already stretched thin thanks to the hectic holiday season.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
