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 […]

Vaquero’s BBQ & Dippin Sauce (5/5)

A hardened, mustached Hispanic man introduces California-based Vaquero’s BBQ Sauce, where “Spicy Chipotle Meets Cowboy Coffee”.  He looks you right in the face, as if to say “Go Ahead, Make My Wings” with an accent.  I’m not sure who the guy is exactly, but I’m curious to find out more. Outside the bottle The sauce […]

Picky Pig Barbecue Rub came to me from New York state and the first thing that stood out to me was the high quality appearance – the label and bottle and spice all present themselves in a very clean yet fun manner. So let’s see if this pig oinks or squeals! Outside the Bottle: People […]

Smokehouse Woods Sweet Whispering Heat (4/5)

I really like the name Sweet Whispering Heat and how it immediately conjures up a sauce that starts sweet yet quietly sneaks up on you… Outside the Bottle Label quality is simple and high quality but has some unused real estate which could be useful to put a stronger image in front of the casual observer.   […]
