Grumpy’s Black Label BBQ Sauce (5/5)



In 2007, Jeff Greenberg from Grumpy’s food set out to make a spicy sauce with a real smoky cumin taste. The result was Black Label. Excellent ingredients, label, taste, smell, consistency.  A great balance of sweet, spice, and tang that won’t burn your mouth off.  The addition of natural hot sauce, habanero powder, cayenne peppers, and oriental hot mustard heat up your mouth to a slow simmer, but don’t take it to the level of scoville novelty like some spicy BBQ sauces.  After grilling the flavor remains strong and some of subtle spices come out. The ingredients stay all natural – using tomato paste and vinegar instead of ketchup and using dark brown sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.    Simple yet elegant website and label.  Clearly, Grumpy/Jeff is a guy who knows what he is doing.
