AlbuKirky’s Duke City Sweet Barbecue Sauce comes to us from Albuquerque, New Mexico (Albuquerque is sometimes referred to as Duke City). Outside the Bottle This sauce has a streamlined, fluted plastic bottle and a professional appearance with a sun logo and some key attributes called out such as No HFCS and All Natural. “All natural” […]

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 […]

Baltimore Barbecue Company Original 4/5

This sauce has some lofty goals – the owner Adam Rosenblatt wants to put Baltimore BBQ sauce on the map, and why not? Baltimore is a great city with a renovated waterfront area (Inner Harbor) and a diverse population. Outside The Bottle The label is nice and professional. It’s good for locals with a skyline […]

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.   […]

The Picky Pig Barbecue Sauce (4/5)

From Long Island City, New York (a part of Queens) comes this well executed sauce with a sweet approach and a tangy finish, one for those who prefer to rock a stronger vinegar flavor (like Open Pit and Stubbs) as opposed to the classic thick sweet BBQ sauce (such as KC Masterpiece and Bullseye BBQ […]

Sugar Britches BBQ Sauce and Glaze (4/5)

Sugar Britches was sent to me by the owners of Jenks Specialty Foods LLC, a California-based gourmet products producer with an appetite for making high quality, healthy, and tasty products.   I immediately liked the name of the sauce upon first hearing it and couldn’t wait to open the bottle when it arrived. Outside the Bottle […]

Kissimmee Red Spicy Grillin’ & Dippin BBQ Sauce (4/5)

This is the sister sauce to the Kissimmee Red Original Grillin’ & Dippin BBQ sauce.   This sauce is built from the same foundation as their original sauce, with 2 subtle differences: the label has a darker theme (an orange background vs a green background), and it’s spicy (the Spicy variant adds ground red pepper and […]

Puppum’s Three Dogs Spicy Habanero BBQ Sauce (4/5)

It’s a dog-sauce-dog world for the makers of this sauce based in Wakefield, Rhode Island. And although Rhode Island is the smallest state in the country, this sauce packs a big, stately flavor. Outside the Bottle The label is great and clearly the design of a professional.  It’s called Three Dogs and appropriately, we see the three […]

Owen’s BBQ Tatonka Dust (4/5)

I like this North Dakota based rub because they start out saying right away “we’re different.”   Their motto on the front is Stand Out from the Herd.  Be Original.  They use a bulls head on the logo.  And it’s from North Dakota – not exactly the BBQ business capital of the world. So what […]

Smokin’ Guns BBQ Sweet Heat Rub (4/5)

This very popular BBQ rub was recommended to me at a recent trip to the KC BBQ Superstore. The gentleman working the counter that day said that many teams use this in competitions.  And I can see why. The simple “Western Style” label is good and pretty much tells you what it is. They say […]
