Grandville’s Gourmet BBQ Sauce – Tropical (5/5)



I think a lot of companies get the execution of fruit-based BBQ sauces wrong.   The concept of eating barbecue sauce with fruit is a bit odd for some who are used to garden variety (no pun intended) sauces that don’t taste much like typical fruits and vegetables.

I approached this one with skepticism, as the Original Spicy sauce had an overwhelming “eating your veggies” flavor which was a bit much for me.  The taste in this one has a much milder veggie lead flavor, and with the added pineapples, it really evens out the balance of flavors.  As you can see by my rating, I loved this sauce!

Grandville’s nails it with a great smell, flavor, before and after cooking flavor, sticks-to-meat consistency, and great packaging to back it up.  It’s one of the most chunky, most natural sauces that I’ve ever seen in a bottle.

When I grilled up the chicken, it felt like the Caribbean around here – just needed a steel drum or two and some reggae music.  I could also see this going good on top of pork – thinking ham and pineapple is always a nice match.  I’ll have to try that soon.
