I Love MeatHouse!

Disclaimer: Earlier in the summer, the MeatHouse offered me a gift certificate to get some free food and write up my experience of their franchised butcher chop… and I’m finally getting around to it now. The Meathouse is a lot like your local butcher – loaded with knowledge, experience, attention, and of course MEAT – […]

Blurring of the BBQ Sauce Borders

A note to sauce makers: The world is flat (as Thomas Friedman says) and the US is too.  And just as the world is brought closer together via online mechanisms like blogs and facebook, so is the world of BBQ sauce.  Unless we’re talking about the restaurants located in the specific regions of the US […]

J Dogg Phair Red Hot Mama BBQ Sauce (4/5)

This is J Dogg Phair’s original, traditional BBQ sauce (compared to the eclectic bacon, port wine, chipotle symphony of Thought Yo Knew!) with a lot of positives for me: great packaging, bottle, cooked flavor, and high quality ingredients. The aroma and taste of the sauce were tangy tomato (like Stubbs or even Open Pit) – […]

GMG S.O.S.S Review (4/5)

GMG (aka Green Mountain Grills) makes a few nice looking pellet grills and happens to also have a line of sauces and rubs. Personally, I’m not against appliance/hardware providers getting into the sauce business, but based on the relatively uncommon occurrence, I usually tread carefully when I see food products from folks like Charbroil or […]

Free Sauce Friday: Farm 2 Market Foods

Free Sauce Friday is back and this week’s giveaway is Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce by Farm 2 Market Foods. It’s a different one with a deep rich flavor and a little bit of heat.  I gave it 5 stars not very long ago.  They use fire roasted tomatoes which is unique, and really flavorful. We […]

J Dogg Phair Thought You Knew BBQ Sauce (5/5)

This sauce was created in 1988 by Jim Phair in Denver, Colorado at the prodding of his friends who he wanted to show friends what a BBQ sauce could be.   He got the nickname J Dogg because he was always “dogging” other BBQ sauce makers for their lack of originality and quality. The packaging was […]

Slow Poke Spicy Apple (5/5)

I opened the box and immediately liked this bottle.  Although it may be a little over-designed with stylized fonts that are a little tough to read, the combination turtle/smoker is fantastic.  Where can I buy a walking turtle smoker right now?! When I opened the bottle, it hit my nose with two of my favorite […]

Free Sauce Friday: Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce

It’s that special day of the week my friends and this time it’s a robust, tangy, vinegar based BBQ sauce for all of you eastern NC style lovers out there.  I gave the product 4/5 stars in January and I just love the vintage label of this. Today we’re going to have 5 WINNERS!   Yes, […]

Big Butz Original BBQ Sauce (5/5)

What can I say.   I’m a sucker for smooth, simple, balanced flavors.  And that’s what Big Butz provides. Big Butz Original BBQ Sauce is one of these sauces that could literally replace ketchup in a household if you had enough of it.  It provides a nice smooth mild, sweet KC style sauce with nothing disagreeable.  […]

Farm2Market Foods Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce (5/5)

I am pleased to review Arizona-based Farm2Market Foods’ Sonoran Style BBQ Sauce. First off, what is Sonoran style?    Sonoran-style indicates it is related to a region in Mexico that borders Arizona to the South.  Sonoran-style generally indicates “Mexican food” but one can find a lot of references to uniqueness of the region in terms […]
