Millers Secret Sauce Original BBQ Sauce (4/5)



Paul Miller has been making this sauce for about a year and a half.   Not long ago, he produced his first official batch and shipped me out a few samples.   I suggest you try it out!

From Paul

“Well I started making my own sauce a few years ago and after many, many hours over the stove I finally had something that I loved and wanted to put my name on it. After about 45-50 try’s I finally narrowed down my recipe. For awhile now friends and family kept asking for more and for me to bottle it. So after about a nine month process I finally have my first production run done.”

It’s a classic KC style sauce and I do have a weak spot for classic KC style BBQ sauce – the flavor really packs a punch with a unique but subtle blend of herbs and spices.  The onion is there but not overpowering.  The garlic is there but wouldn’t kill a vampire or ruin your next kiss.  It could be considered a bit on the sweet side, but most folks I know who BBQ don’t mind a little extra sugary substance.

For a couple of negatives, the consistency and the ingredients could use improvement – a bit too much corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup (there are reports on both sides, but I do believe this stuff really is bad for your health).  Also the sauce was a bit on the thin side.

Other than that, the flavor was great both before and after the grilling experience.   After being grilled it tasted just like those KC Masterpiece BBQ chips.  Yum!  And the reddish brown color and specks of actual spices will always – to quote Martha Stewart – be a good thing.

    I was given a couple jars of this sauce (one regular, one spicy) about a year ago and was impressed. I’d like to buy some, but I have no idea where to look.
