Trifecta Blazing Barbecue Sauce (5/5)

Trifecta sauces are a Kentucky based trio of sauces containing a mild, medium and hot variety. This review is for their Blazing Barbecue Sauce, their hot variety. Outside the Bottle Much like their mild and medium sauces, Trifecta’s Blazing Barbecue Sauce has a clean overall appearance but this one invites you inside like a scary […]

Trifecta Sweet Heat Barbecue Sauce (5/5)

Trifecta sauces are a Kentucky based trio of sauces containing a mild, medium and hot variety. This review is for their Sweet Heat Barbecue Sauce, their medium variety.

Bar-B-Que Beast Original BBQ Sauce (4/5)

“Feed Your Beast!” says the hairy meatball like figure who is about to stuff his face with a burger or a chicken sandwich. It’s the logo for this fun sauce out of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. Outside the Bottle In general, the outside isn’t pulling me in. I love the sauce name, but the front isn’t shouting […]

AlbuKirky Red Chile BBQ Rub (5/5)

I came upon this rub after trying the Duke City Sweet BBQ Sauce from AlbuKirky.  And funny enough, it is this Red Chile rub that is the magic ingredient in the sauce.  And on it’s own, it’s quite nice. Outside the Bottle The simple label with the sun is best left to a simple name like Red […]

AlbuKirky Green Chile BBQ Rub (5/5)

There’s not a lot of prepackaged rubs that I love, because most of them are some form of paprika, salt, and pepper which anyone can make at home and tweak to their individual tastes.   On the other hand, Kirk from AlbuKirky just keeps bringing it.    I enjoy his Green Chile Rub just as […]

Absolutely Perfect BBQ Sauce (4/5)

Wow!   I don’t think it’s possible to make a bolder statement on the front of your BBQ sauce than calling your company Absolutely Perfect. I like the confidence, the swagger, the bravado of it, but you guys know me by now – I’m a bit skeptical. Outside The label for Championship Blue Ribbon St […]

Huckleberry Habanero BBQ Sauce 4/5

Hoooooot!   The fruity hot Huckleberry Habanero BBQ Sauce comes to us all the way from Florence Montana.  It marks two firsts for me – the first sauce I’ve reviewed from Montana and the first sauce I’ve tried with huckleberries.  The maker is Grandma Hoot Products hence the initials “GHP” on the front of the label […]
