Jack Daniel’s Original No.7 Recipe Barbecue Sauce (3/5)



This is sauce is OK, but it’s really more of an extension of a huge brand versus a finely-tuned BBQ sauce for barbecue and grilling fanatics like you and me. They put lots of funky stuff in the sauce itself from high fructose corn syrup to modified corn starch to preservatives and artificial flavoring.  They put “essence” of Jack Daniels in the sauce, it’s not even the real stuff.

In terms of aroma and flavor, I get a good smoky, full aroma BBQ sauce scent with vinegar tomato and a slight hint of JD whiskey.  After grilling, the whiskey flavor gets a tad stronger, but the sauce has a strange way of not really sticking to the meat very well considering it’s thickness.


Tomato Concentrate, HFCS, Distilled White Vinegar, Molasses, Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Natural Hickory Smoke Flavor, Mustard Flour, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate (preservatives), Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Flavoring (Natural and Artificial Flavors), Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Spice, Xanthan Gum.

Bottom line

This sauce is OK, nothing special, and if the price is right in your local market (probably pretty cheap) than it could work well for your household.
