Saint A’s BAR-B-Q Sauce (3/5)



St. Augustine is a city in the northeast section of Florida that was founded in 1565 by Spanish explorer and admiral, Pedro Menéndez de Avilés.  It is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city and port in the United States.  St. Augustine lies in a region of Florida known as “The First Coast”, which extends from Amelia Island in the north, and in the south to Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Palm Coast. According to the 2000 census, the city population was 11,592; in 2004, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that its population had reached 12,157.  St. Augustine is the headquarters for the Florida National Guard and the home of Saint A’s barbecue sauce.

This is for BBQ enthusiasts who really like onions and aren’t afraid to try something different.   A little bit like Crazy Uncle Jester’s Brush Fire BBQ Sauce, this one seemed a bit more like a relish than a sauce, but  didn’t have quite the flavor of Brush Fire and had only a trace of heat.

Some quotes from the other three judges, not including me:

“Thick, yuck – not spicy, not smokey”

“Chunky, sweet, crunchy, some heat”

“Jelly consistency, chunky, no heat, oniony”


Very strong onion/garlic-scented vinegary BBQ sauce aroma.

Taste Before Cooking

Onion mixed with red wine vinegar.  Expected more spice.  Just a hint of heat.


Thick, almost onion-relish/jelly-like consistency.  Could be considered chunky.

Taste After Cooking

Good, doesn’t really change – retains chunky consistency throughout cooking.


Nothing stand-out.  Average.  HFCS and additional corn syrup added.


Below average, looks like designed in Microsoft Paint.  I would play up the city of St Augustine a bit more and maybe throw in an iconic building.
