Who knew crime and punishment, Hollywood and Kansas City, and people with names like Aunt Pauline and Nana Lena could be combined in one story about BBQ sauce? Well, it’s all true. It could be the most interesting Behind-The-Sauce story I’ve read so far. The flavor, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired…
Of course, taste is highly subjective, but I found the strong vinegar flavor to be overpowering. If you’ve tried a few sauces you know what I mean. The aroma as well as the flavor is just a bit too sour for my taste buds and this takes what is a great sauce execution down a few notches. There are, however, many other great qualities about this sauce including:
- Great story and a great website
- Great ingredients (all-natural, gluten-free)
- Consistency – an almost perfect lava-like flow from bottle to basting bowl and clings to meat
- Dark look of the sauce is near perfect for an all natural sauce and damn, I just wished this tasted a bit better.
