Back in February, the committee for the 2012 Democratic National Convention (in Charlotte, NC) launched a search for the best BBQ sauces to be named the official BBQ sauces of the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Thirty different submissions were received in three categories: tomato based, mustard based, and vinegar based. Submissions ranged from homemade BBQ sauces to nationally recognized brands. The standard used in judging the various sauces was based on the South Carolina BBQ Society score sheet, scoring on a scale from 1 to 20 in four different criteria: aroma, taste, after taste, and overall impression.
Today’s review will take a look at a pair of sauces from Perris, CA, courtesy of Ira Pupko and Hog Heaven Foods. Let’s take a look at the Smokehouse and Apple-Chipotle flavors. Continue reading “Hog Heaven Sauces Review, Part I”
A month or so back, I was asked by Tim Smallwood (one of my fellow team members on Team Tucker Cooker for Memphis in May) asked me to try out his sauce and give him feedback. Normally I would try it out and give feedback without writing about it on here. Well I tried it out, and quite honestly, this is a sauce you need to know about and try out as well! This is Tiger “Q” BBQ Sauce!
I like to keep up with various BBQ blogs around the Internet. One of those blog is The “Q” Review. Derek is constantly cranking out reviews of various BBQ sauces, rubs, and other items. He will also run the occasional contest. Some time back, he ran a giveaway that I was fortunate enough to win. The prize: Bill’s Best Organic BBQ Sauce.
About 2-3 weeks ago, my wife was out running some errands. While she was out, she called me to let me know that she had some sauce for me to review. It caught me off-guard, but I got excited when she told me who she met. Heather went to The Meat House here in Charlotte to pick up some chicken. That day, Scott from Outta the Park BBQ Sauce was there doing a demo. So now I present to you a review of a sauce that I’ve looked forward to reviewing – Outta the Park BBQ Sauce.
It’s not very often that I get to try a sauce that has not been released to the market yet. Recently I won an online giveaway to be one of the first people to try out their new sauce – Stubb’s Sweet Heat. I want to share with you my initial thoughts and impressions on this new sauce to be on the market soon! Continue reading “Checking Out Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce”
Not too long ago, I did a review of the Cajun Sweet Applewood Jalapeno BBQ Sauce on some burgers. They turned out really well. So I turned my attention to another one of the offerings from Daigle Family Co. — Cajun Sweet Pecan Garlic BBQ Sauce. This sauce placed 2nd in the BBQ Blast Sauce Contest, so it’s bound to be good!
Some time back, I was on the hunt for products to review. Someone mentioned to me that I should check out the line of sauces from Daigle Family Co. I got in touch with Ted, and he was gracious enough to send me his sauces for review. Today I’m reviewing the Cajun Sweet Applewood Jalapeno BBQ Sauce. Continue reading “Review: Daigle Family Co. Cajun Sweet Applewood Jalapeno BBQ Sauce”
When I utter the words “Carolina style BBQ sauce”, what comes to mind? If you said tang, then continue reading…
Whenever I go to judge various KCBS competitions, I like to also go around and check out the various vendors and booths that are set up as well. Back in October during the KCBS competition in Waxhaw, NC (read a review of it here), one of the vendors I came across was a local BBQ sauce maker — Seth Land of Southern Staple Foods. Lucky for me, he was handing out samples of his sauce. One taste, and I knew that this sauce was good stuff. We chatted for a while, and he was kind enough to give me a bottle of his sauce to review. So I present to you Proud Piggy BBQ Sauce!
When I think of Indiana, I think of many things. I think of Larry Bird and the Indy 500. I think of college basketball and Peyton Manning. Up until now, I never thought barbecue sauce when I thought of Indiana. Thanks to winning a giveaway on BBQ Sauce Reviews, I’m learning otherwise. Enter Hoosier Daddy Sweet & Sassy Barbecue Sauce into the picture…
