A few weeks ago, I participated in BBQ sauce giveaway on BBQ Sauce Reviews, not really expecting to win. Because, you know, that’s just how I roll. Well lo and behold, I actually won! The prize was two different items from Uncle Joe’s BBQ. Today’s review is for their Honey Mesquite Sauce in a Bag.
One of the new up-and-coming stars in the BBQ sauce and rub scene is Shane Draper of Draper’s BBQ. He has embraced social media as a primary platform for marketing his sauce and rub, and it has been a resounding success! After reading several reviews of his products (including reviews done by Kevin Kelly of Kevin’s BBQ Joints and Wilfred Reinke a.k.a. the Oshawa Ogre), I knew this was a product I had to try. Shane was gracious enough to send me a bottle of his Smokin’ Sauce and A.P. Rub to review.
Tonight was a night of unexpected opportunities. My wife had planned on cooking dinner tonight. However, I was unable to get one of the main ingredients for the planned meal, so those grand plans fell through. She finally suggested that I do the Hot-n-Nasty Burgers that I did earlier this week. Turns out this was the perfect opportunity to try out the Spicy BBQ Sauce from Uncle Kenny’s BBQ!
Yesterday, one of my co-workers needed my advice on BBQ places for lunch. She told me that one of our clients would be buying lunch for the office today, and that lunch would be BBQ. Immediately my mind starts thinking “Hey… this will be a perfect opportunity to try out some of my stash!” After much thought, I picked the bottle of Yellow Dog Sauce made by Sam Dog BBQ.
