  5. I would go for Grumpys Bold XX! The bolder the better for me and my family! Yum Yum Give me some!!!

    If I received a bottle of Grumpy’s Good Loving Texas Style sauce, I would buy a sweet lookin’ brisket and trim it just right. Then, I would massage it with a nice thin layer of oil and rub it with salt, herbs and spices until that fat ugly hunk of meat looked scrumtious.
    I would fill my hopper with hickory pellets and let that brisket cook until it hits 180 degrees, cover it in foil and cook it another hour or so more.
    When the temperature hits about 195, I will open the foil, coat the brisket with 1/2 bottle of Grumpy’s Good Loving Texas Style Sauce until it glowed that orangey/red color and cover it again for another hour.
    Finally, I would slice that juicy brisket and serve it with the remaining sauce to my family, friends and neighbors. If that deliciousness doesn’t make this world a better place, nothing will.

    Summer’s coming soon
    Smoked pork, a cold budweiser

    *a BBQ haiku

  12. Good Loving Texas Style! I would put them on a huge rack of ribs because they do everything big in Texas!

  13. I had a wife once…..i thought she would be sweet and mild like the “Not So Bold’……boy was i wrong, the only way i could get a good nites loving was to try some of this sauce….and talk about grumpyyyyy!

  14. deborah cannon says

    I just got me a new pizza oven/smoker that I’m ready to fire up! Nuttin’ would be better than to throw me on a Boston Butt and cook ‘er low and slow …. I can smell that smoke right now..Mmm mmm. Now to tickle the Butt, I gotsta try me some of that good ol’ Black Label BBQ sauce … a (5 out of 5 for my 5 out of 5 Butt) !! Then to keep up the theme I might try to get me some of that Black Label beer to wash it down with… Sounds like a great way to spend my day. Beer, Butt, and Black Label !!!

  15. Oh while NOT SO BOLD I go to my smoker to make some GOOD LOVING TEXAS STYLE ribs, however I become pleasantly distracted by my neighbor’s BOLD XX walking around in a skimpy BLACK LABEL thong as she demands my neighbor’s attention. So all I could do is smile and enjoy my GRUMPY neighbor at his dismay as I thought of my ribs and the delicious looking BLACK LABEL Boston Butt.

  16. Grumpy has been my middle name as the clock ticks in my barbeque madness. Not sweet enough, too spicy, over done and maybee to perfect. I would use this sauce on some short ribs that may or may not bring Youth to the voices.

  17. Black Label is the sauce for me. I just completed making mods to my smoker (based on the instructions here ) and have been conflicted on what to smoke first: brisket or spare ribs?

    Well, Black Label would answer that question for me. I’d use it as a mopping sauce on the first rack of ribs I cook in my newly modified smoker.

    And as usual I’d post pictures of the entire process to Flickr and Facebook, and tweet the whole way home.

    On the first sunny day after I get my Good Loving Texas BBQ sauce! I will ready my Big Green Egg yet for one more experiment. I think it sounds like a sauce that would delicious on a smoked brisket. So I would rub my brisket in olive oil then add simple flavors so I don’t mess with the fine taste of the new BBQ Sauce, about one hour before completion of my smoking I would start basting the brisket with the new exciting sauce once I have that caramelized effect onto the chopping block. Nice thin slices on top a hoggie bun with onion and pickles and of course more sauce and serve with sides of potato salad and texas pinto beans.

    Next that wonderful sounding North Carolina style. Ahh the memories of an old fashion “Pig Pickin” yum with this one I will buy me a big ole Boston Pork Butt and do the same prep as before for the brisket ater that it all changes. That pork has to fall off the bone for me then I shred it and do a little chop chop, throw it in the fry pan with a little olive oil, then comes that sauce, reduce the heat and let that sauce do it thing on my pork. This one calls for some coleslaw and baked beans and of course a Pig Picking Pineapple cake! yum yum

    Bring that sauce on!!!

  19. I’ve been looking up BBQ’s all week long and everyday your website pops up and I seem to read another entry about BBQ!!! GREAT SITE! Would love to try the Black Label!

    I would probably enjoy a bottle of Bold XX.
    I don’t care too much about the heat, but I crave sweetness is my BBQ sauce.
    I normally get plain honey BBQ.
    I take a few nice sized pieces of pork, dice ’em up thin and throw them in a pot. Then I submerge them in barbecue sauce and boil them till the sauce boils down and the pork is glazed in a delicious condensed layer.
    It goes well thrown in fried rice or on top of a pizza with your choice of other toppings.
    A monthish ago I made such a pizza pepperoni with this pork put on top basically covering the surface area of the pizza and was shortly thereafter inspired to write my “Ode to Barbecue Sauce.”
    That was with generic Honey BBQ. What bold new heights could Bold XX inspire me to?

  21. bold xx for sure! sounds like it would pair quite nicely with my girlfriend. I’d dump it all over her, now thats good eats!

  22. I like to keep an open mind.
    However, an open mind is not an empty mind.
    Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out!

    It is in the spirit of keeping an open mind — that I’d welcome the opportunity to try the Good Lovin’ and the XX.
