Pork Barrel Sweet BBQ Sauce (5/5)

The guys from Pork Barrel are living in a shark infested world – and they are thriving.  Like a remora finds a way to coexist with real sharks (they eat parasites and creatures from the shark while the shark provides food, transportation, and protection for the remora) the guys from Pork Barrel are doing very […]

Porky Joes BBQ Sauce (4/5)

A Swicy Sauce from Elk Grove Village So it’s been a long time coming since my last review and I have excuses, but do you really want to hear them? No, I think you want more reviews and more sauce!   This sauce comes to us from Illinois – a little place called Elk Grove Village.   […]

Biggy’s Cranberry BBQ Sauce (5/5)

Cranberries – most of us either love ‘em or hate ‘em, as their strong, sweet, yet tart flavor have such a specific bold taste that it can simply be too much for some folks. Me?   Well I grew up in Massachusetts, with summers at Cape Cod, which means Ocean Spray was not too far down […]

Royal Fireworks Texas Sweet Hickory (5/5)

Royal Fireworks Texas Sweet Hickory is the third sauce in a series of sauces by Royal Fireworks and I’m proud to call a 5 star sauce.  It does a great job providing the right stuff; i.e. the special sauce, on both the outside and inside of the bottle.  On the outside it tells you exactly […]

Royal Fireworks Grand Finale (4/5)

Part of a series…   This sauce (Grand Finale) is pictured at the far right with diced jalapenos, pepper seeds, and more chunks in general. This sauce is just like the original Royal Fireworks sauce and is marketed as a Fiery Sweet Crescendo.    Tangent: I was looking for a music tie-in for the first Royal […]

Royal Fireworks Original BBQ Sauce (4/5)

It was to celebrate the end of the War of the Austrian Succession and the […]

Ruble Family BBQ Sauce (4/5)

This sauce comes to us from the Heartland (specifically the 1474 person town of Holstein Iowa) and has been produced since 2006.  The Ruble Family BBQ sauce is produced by a restaurant that makes a simple, tasty peach flavored BBQ sauce. There’s a lot to like about this sauce from its subtle peach overtone and […]

Zurrell’s BBQ Sauce (4/5)

This is a great before and after story of a guy who took advice and got his label reworked.  Still a 4 at the end of the day, but this is definitely a sauce to watch. BEFORE The name Z BBQ Sauce comes from Todd Zurrell’s last name.  Mr Z has got a spicy bourbon […]

Uncle Kenny’s Spicy BBQ Sauce (3/5)

If I were reviewing blindfolded on a piece of cooked meat with this sauce, the score would be different as it’s pretty tasty.   But as I’ve always done, I try to balance my reviews evenly across the outside of the bottle and the inside of the bottle.   The outside needs to tell me the basics, […]
