Jake’s Inferno Barbecue Sauce (5/5)

Whoa, this stuff is smokin hot.  And it’s been hot with the judges too, winning a Golden Chile award and numerous other industry accolades.  It comes in my favorite form-factor the 16 oz wide mouth glass jar, it has a great, professional-looking label, and it tastes great too. It’s got a strong natural vibe with […]

Nephew’s Ghostly Pumpkin BBQ Sauce (5/5)

A 5 for originality, great flavor, use of ingredients, consistency, and packaging. I’d give it a 6 if I could. It’s not going to replace your classic standby BBQ sauce, but it’s worth trying – especially if you like pumpkin pie and grilling!

Pascua’s Spicy BBQ Sauce

This intriguing little 9.7 oz bottle sporting the massive stone heads (moai) of Easter Island definitely stood out from the crowd. The word “pascua” means Easter and in Spanish, Easter Island would be Isla de Pascua. You would think after 6 years of Spanish I would have learned that… nope. The things you learn by writing about BBQ sauce…

Big Nugg Company Southwest Chipotle Q Sauce (4/5)

Decent flavor from a competition barbecue team that wanted to bring “the exact sauces” they use in competition to you.  Like Blender’s this one provides a strong vinegar oomph but not quite as overpowering.  The three pepper blend (Cayenne, Chipotle, Red Chili) provides a great balance of flavor and heat – just enough to heat […]

Miller’s Spicy Bar-B-Q Sauce (5/5)

Miller’s brings to market a traditional KC-style BBQ sauce with a smooth balance of heat and sweet. I liked the strong hickory via liquid smoke and the deep rich flavors provided by the molasses and brown sugar.

Hecky’s Hot Barbecue Sauce (4/5)

This sauce is a little brother to Hecky’s Original, which I gave five stars back in May.   And it does a couple things I really liked but didn’t impress me as much as their original sauce.  The sauce was certainly hotter than the original (expected), but the flavor profile also changed quite a bit.  Don’t […]

Grandville’s Gourmet BBQ Sauce – Tropical (5/5)

I think a lot of companies get the execution of fruit-based BBQ sauces wrong.   The concept of eating barbecue sauce with fruit is a bit odd for some who are used to garden variety (no pun intended) sauces that don’t taste much like typical fruits and vegetables.

Olde Cape Cod Chipotle (1/5)

In a previous BBQ Sauce Review, I’ve tried to advise others to avoid the Christmas Tree Shoppes when purchasing BBQ sauces. I should take my own damn advice. I don’t even know why I bother to review this stuff. I guess it shows a nice balance of the good and the really bad. Not everything can be a 3, 4, or a 5.

Captain Curts Famous Boss Sauce – Hot (4/5)

A great tasting sauce. Not too much variation from the mild sauce in terms of flavor, but I noticed something slightly unusual here – usually on a label for spicy BBQ sauces, you can quickly determine what ingredient is making the sauce hot.  Usually it’s some kind of pepper, either in spice, extract, or natural […]

Fork ‘N Halo BBQ Fire and Brimstone Sauce (3/5)

Like breaking off a little piece of Hell and mixing it with some vinegar and tomato sauce, this stuff will certainly torture you with heat.  If you believe your mouth should deserve the fire and brimstone treatment, then you might like it.  If you’ve been reading me for a little while, you might know that […]
