It’s been a while since I’ve done a sauce review, so let’s fix that. This is a sauce I’ve had for quite some time now that I’ve been itching to try out. From my home state of Mississippi, here’s Ubon’s Sauce!
I’ve had Wink’s on my “must check out” list for quite some time now, but for some reason or another I’ve never made it there until recently. One weekend I finally bit the bullet and made the drive (approximately 45 minutes from my house) up for lunch. Was it worth it? Let’s find out!
I seriously considered publishing this blog on Valentine’s Day and leading off with some line referencing a Crazy Bitch. But then I thought better of it, realizing that may not be the best move in my book. So instead I will wax poetic on trying out a trio of sauces from Crazy Bitch Gourmet Sauces – Sassy, Hott, and Chicken Shit.
Before embarking on my current trip to Montana for work, I thought of the state as pretty much BBQ barren. I’m proud to say that I’m wrong. On my way back to Bozeman from the Little Bighorn Battle Site, I made a stop in Billings at Blue’s BBQ after consulting Yelp. A lot of times, the reviews on there can be hit or miss, so it was a bit of a risk. Nothing would ruin my 2 hour trip back than some terrible BBQ. But don’t let its modest location within a gas station fool you… it’s got some serious food!
One thing I’ve learned about BBQ is that you meet people fast. Everybody that you meet either knows somebody or knows a person that knows somebody. Connections are a wonderful thing! One of the people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting on the competition circuit is Jerry from Redneck Scientific. I have him to thank for getting me connected to the guy who makes the sauce that is the topic of this review – Smokin’ Skullies “Just Leave the Bones” BBQ Sauce.
When I was at Memphis in May last year, a group of us had lunch at Memphis Barbecue Co. in Horn Lake, MS just before I had to fly back to NC. I was very impressed with the quality of food there. Imagine my excitement when I find out that world champion BBQ pitmasters Melissa Cookston and John Wheeler decide to open a location here in North Carolina. There was one slight problem – the new location is in Fayetteville, about 2 hours and 40 minutes away from me. This past weekend, my wife bribed me with a trip to Memphis Barbecue Co. in Fayetteville if I tagged along with her to some yarn & fiber shops. Lesson here: feed me, and I’ll do pretty much anything you want. So let’s check out Memphis Barbecue Co.!
This review is long overdue. I’ve had this sauce for quite a while and have been using the heck out of it. Sweet and heat is the name of this sauce. From southern California, here is Rooftop BBQ Competition Style Sauce.
I’m waaaaaaaay behind on evaluating and reviewing sauces. Now that I’m a few months into my new job, I’m getting back into the swing of things with reviews. To get started, let’s take a look at this sauce from Graettinger, Iowa. This is Sin Bin BBQ’s House BBQ Sauce.
