New Orleans Smoky Blues BBQ Sauce (Bar-B-Bar) (1/5)

The same company that conceived and delivered the magnificent Carribean Calypso failed to excite my tastebuds with a somewhat toxic smelling/tasting mixture of Water, Sugar, Soy Sauce, and Molasses. Luckily – I did not puke. Also – here’s an interesting example of where a hard slanted marketing direction takes a beating. When you think of New Orleans nowadays, […]

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Sensous Slathering Sauce (5/5)

Clearly marketed towards big loud chopper owners, the references aren’t too strong enough to turn off those of us who aren’t bikers. How many references to Harley’s can you find on this bottle? I found 5 The manufacturer describes this as “an aggressive, crimson-red, tomato-based sauce riddled with spices you can see, smell and taste,” […]

Steven Raichlen Best of Barbecue Lemon Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce (2/5)

Never buy barbecue sauce at Border’s book stores. For one, they are a friggin book store – they shouldn’t be selling barbecue sauce. And number two, it’s expensive. I picked up this large brown cylinder-jar of sauce in the hip neighborhood of Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, PA – setting me back $8.99 for 18 ounces. Worth […]

Miracle Whip + Chipotle Tabasco = Fish BBQ Heaven

You can call me names, and slap me silly, but you won’t change my mind. I love Miracle Whip. On sandwiches, as a burger condiment, with cake and ice cream.

Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Chipotle Barbecue Sauce (4/5)

Positives: Awesome flavor, recommended replacement for the good ole big cookout standby that you use today. Negatives: Mass market ingredients, might be considered too sweet, squeeze bottle. Sometimes the stories behind the sauces are as tasty as their sauces. Here’s the Sweet Baby Ray’s story (from SBR website): “It all began back in 1985 when […]

Caribbean Calypso Island Hoppin’ BBQ Sauce & Dip (5/5)

By now, only on my third review for BBQ Sauce Reviews, I’m startin’ to notice a lot of g’s missin’ in the packagin’. I guess it’s how most of these sauces are marketed – as kinda casual and fun – as the process of grilling and eating BBQ’d foods is inherently fun. Although this Caribbean […]

Charley Biggs’ All Naturals Sweet Bourbon Barbeque Grilling and Dipping Sauce (3/5)

Positive: High scores due to creative use of natural ingredients and flavor. Negative: Similar taste can probably be achieved by adding a little Worcestershire Sauce to a giant national brand. Marketed as natural, gluten-free BBQ Sauces, Charley Biggs’ has several flavors to choose from, including Hot Pepper, Sweet Bourbon, and Maine Apple, which pays respect […]
