About Señor Pelon

Homemade Sauces and Seasoning - Senor Pelon

Growing up in a family whose gatherings always centered around the kitchen, I learned to cook at an early age.  I’ve been working in restaurants, part-time or full-time, since I was 14 years old.  I’ve worked with every kind of cuisine there is, but my favorite is BBQ.  I’ll bet I’ve worked in more smokehouses than many people have visited.  ?  This experience has taught me a lot, but the most valuable is the importance of good friends—and good food in bringing people together.

That’s why I developed these products.  I wanted to share with everyone these unique and versatile tools to enjoy their kitchens, grills and smokers.  Let the party gather at your house as it always has at mine.

Our marinade started off when I was in college.  My roommate and I were experimenting with the minimal random ingredients that were in our bachelor pad’s kitchen.  I worked on it over the years until it evolved into MarcoPollo All Purpose Marinade.

The BBQ and Dry Rub are an amalgam of all I learned at the different smokehouses I worked in as my wife and I traveled the country.  And LargoRado BBQ Sauce and BrainRub Dry Rub/Chili Powder were born. 

After traveling, we settled in Key West where our son was born; he was cooking alongside us in no time.  In 2012, now in Key Largo, we finally made the move to bring Senor Pelon into being with the first three products above.

MojoSecado Island Spice Blend came along when one of the Florida Keys restaurants I supplied with BrainRub for their pulled pork and ribs asked me for something that would work with pork so he could make a “Southern Cuban” sandwich.

Limanero Key Lime Orange Habanero hot sauce was developed when a local Florida Keys retail vendor asked if I could make a key lime hot sauce. “No one makes a really good one,” she said.  We experimented and got friends, family, and customer feedback for about 6 months before finalizing the recipe you’ll enjoy.

Our sauces and seasonings represent a variety of flavors and complement each other quite well.  There is a world of diversity in these five products.  They can enhance your enjoyment of any protein as well as vegetables.  They can also be used to make dressings, aiolis and more.
