I think we’ve covered hot sauces pretty well in a thread here. Now I’m wondering about people’s favorite barbecue sauces.
Head Country is a supermarket sauce here. I’m fond of the Original and Hickory Smoke varieties.
With Sweet Baby Rays, I prefer Hickory & Brown Sugar and Honey Chipotle (slight heat, I’m not a fan of very hot bbq sauces.)
Kinder’s Mild is a new find for me. It’s smoky and very thick. It’s serious competition with the Head Country sauces for my favorite supermarket sauce. I have a bottle of Kinder’s Hot but i haven’t opened it yet.
A few more supermarket sauces I’ve liked are Lillie’s Smoky (Memphis style), Heinz Memphis, Bull’s-Eye Original, and Bull’s Eye Hickory.
There’s a BBQ specialty store here that carries some harder to find sauces. I’ve tried several Blues Hog sauces and like the Championship Blend best of those. Another contender for my favorite sauce is Killer Hogs The BBQ Sauce.
I’ve been on a barbecue binge lately and have several sauces in the cabinet to try. I hadn’t thought to look there before, but Cabela’s and Sportsman’s Warehouse have some sauces not likely to be found in the supermarket. I tend not to mail-order products like bbq sauce–too many reports of breakages and leaking bottles in the Amazon reviews, and the prices are often ridiculous.
