Kuchera Rub

Meet Drew Kuchera. He’s a regular vendor at the Emporia Farmers Market. I stopped by his table again today – for some more blackberry jam, and I also picked up a jar of banana peppers this time.

With the purchase of two items of canned goods, he gave away samples of his steak seasoning, so now I’ll need to buy some steaks and try that out.

He cans pickles and barbecue sauce, Cajun okra…


… jalepenos, salsa and jams.

And meat seasonings.

You’ll also find Kuchera Rub products at Studio 11 in Emporia.

(Studio 11 is presently at 11 E. 4th in Emporia, but will be moving in early November to 606 Commercial. Only one year after opening, business is going so well for Studio 11 that Kari and Michele needed a bigger space.)

    Hello April. I’ve been doing this a few years now. Started with just a jalapeno plant and grew to this. I’ve shipped to 15 states, located in a couple businesses, and do everything myself. Looking to have one salsa and one BBQ sauce recipe sent to Kansas State for testing soon. From there, my goal is to supply salsa and BBQ sauce to local stores, as well as stores around the nation. I will legally be able to sell to stores such as Walmart and K-Mart, but I don’t believe in supporting them over local businesses such as Studio 11, food markets, and smaller grocery stores. You can find me at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kuchera-Rub/124707377552277 … Feel free to browse all my products and let me know what you think. Can’t wait to hear from you, Drew Kuchera

    wow! Thanks for the reply Drew! I will certainly look you up and purchase a jar or two when I get the chance. I made a bunch of jelly this year too so that is what sparked the interest. well that and I love to eat. What made you decide to start this? do you have a background in cooking or did it just start as a hobby? do you do this in your home kitchen?

    Hello Joe Kuchera, thanks for the reply. I am currently not making any seasonings as I am focusing on getting my mild salsa in stores around Kansas. This costs a lot of money. My current products are mild and hot pickles, multiple varieties of salsa, and bbq sauce. These can be seen and purchased from http://www.kucheras.com … Appreciate your interest and look forward to hearing from you on the website. 🙂 @Joe Kuchera
