Spring Valley Farms Sweet and Spicy Chipotle BBQ Sauce (3/5)

This sauce had an average yet agreeable flavor and a slight back of the mouth heat that intensified with each bite… like a drop of water that keeps working and working and working on a little piece of rock until you have the Grand Canyon… Well, it’s not that hot – but it does get spicier the more you eat. When heated up, I also notice the heat gets activated faster – the magic of grill bringing to life the latent energy within this sauce. A good sweet semi-hot chipotle sauce you might want to check out.

Open Pit Barbecue Sauce Review (2/5)

Tangy and sweet. To me it just doesn’t taste like a BBQ sauce should. It’s got the most bizarre, unnatural smell and the flavor is more like French dressing than BBQ sauce. It goes on anything… meaning that you can add this to just about anything (pork, chicken, ribs, burgers, seafood) and it will be sure to ruin it. Trust me, we went through a lot of this stuff.

Bubble’s Q BBQ Sauce (4/5)

Funny enough, the first ingredient on the bottle is someone else’s BBQ sauce but Buffalo-based Marion “Bubble” Simmons has added enough flavor and flair to make it into a marketable success. Taste Reminiscent of a sauce they might serve in a Clint Eastwood movie.  I’d rename it to Ole West sauce. Or maybe The Good, […]

BBQ Stu’s Gold Barbeque Sauce (4/5)

I liked this strong, sweet-mustard sauce that is enhanced with the kind of fresh peppers that add flavor without the heat.  I’m guessing bell peppers?   The natural ingredients and gluten-free qualities are admirable… and of course the flavor is great but lacks the complexity of some of the other sauces in this category (ie Salt […]

Oregon Dan’s Medium BBQ Sauce (5/5)

This is a sauce that jumps right out at you!  “A taste of Hawaii inside each bottle??”  Hold on, I must have that.  Of course I’m kidding, but with the chunks of pineapple swimming around the bottle, I can see how they could make such bold statements (and back them up).  It’s easily one of […]

Annie’s Smokey Maple BBQ Sauce (3/5)

This is a sauce I wanted to love. It has an incredibly rich aroma that intoxicates you as you prepare to make what you think could be the world’s most incredible BBQ sauce, but then… like some flavored seltzer water products, the smell is only a tease, and your taste-buds are left wanting more. This is an example of an incredibly healthy product that leaned a bit too far in the health direction and forget to make sure the sauce remained flavorful and rich.

The Secret Sauce Smokin Hot BBQ Sauce (4/5)

The hottest in the line-up for The Secret Sauce, the Smokin Hot variety delivers a strong contender for a griller that seeks something a little bit hotter than what he/she is used to. The base flavor is fantastic and only left a couple wants from this reviewer: slightly hotter, and a move to more natural ingredients. This will help the sauce and the consumer in the end.

Uncle Joe’s Honey Mesquite Sauce-in-a-Bag (5/5)

At first, I didn’t really like the BBQ-Sauce-in-a-Bag concept until I realized some of these mixes are in fact some of the tastiest BBQ rubs and seasoning packets I’ve ever come across.   So maybe I should start reviewing some BBQ rubs… The “sauce in the bag” category is a bit of a niche and although […]

Results of my 2011 BBQ Survey

I sent out a survey to about 600 people and got back about 300 replies. My methods were completely unscientific and the questions were: What is your favorite bottled BBQ sauce? What best describes your interest in BBQ sauce? What state are you from? What grill make/model do you use? What cooking fuel do you […]
