i love your idea of the bbq sauce.  however, imo 3oz is not a lot of bbq sauce.  my cousin had the same type of theme for his wedding and he had steak seasoning as his favours.  i loved it and used it.  maybe you can look at doing both sauce and seasoning for those who can’t take liquids with them.

@mypinkshoes: That’s a good idea! And I agree, 3 oz is kind of small for sauce. I would still probably use it, though.

A good rub seasoning mix would be great – and people flying would have no trouble getting that through security. Some friends gave us a small tin of bbq rub spice mix for Christmas and a little goes a long way, so the gift lasts a long time. Attach the sauce recipe and you have an extra nice favor.

I like the idea. 3oz isn’t a lot, but I don’t think that really matters, they’re favors, not meant to feed an army. But I agree that the seasoning packet idea might be more portable. Whatever you do, attaching the recipe is a must 🙂

Just to throw it out there: Out of Town guests can’t carry-on 8oz jars, but they can puit in checked luggage. Restrictions are so tight these days and overhead compartments so small, I almost never just carry-on anymore. If it seems like guests will be checking bags (maybe touch base with close friends from out of town and see if they’ve thought about it)…might as well just go with 8oz.

@MrsFeatherbottom:  I know what you mean about Out of Town guests — Fiance and I are doing champagne flutes for favors (with wine charm escort that I saw on boards here!) and my main thought is that Out of Town guests won’t take them home with them. So I guess the thing is, don’t spend too much and, more importantly, make sure your favors are something that you’ll want to keep if the guests don’t take them. Fi and I would love to have an 8-pack of the flutes if people leave them, for example.

3oz is okay, but if they’re going to leave them behind then better to do either seasoning or 8oz and keep the leftovers yourselves!
