OP here pic related is a good bbq sauce
Can we have a serious talk about barbecue sauce for once?
High fructose corn syrup is just not okay. It is the pitfall of mass-production, being the cheapest sweetener. Very few brands use sugar as their sweetener, but it's worth it to just get the real stuff. Any organic/local barbecue sauce will likely not have HFCS, and it's worth the extra few bucks.
Why is it worth it to pay the extra few bucks. You're slathering and dousing meat in this shit. You are willing to splurge on a good cut of meat but essentially cheapen it with a corn-syrup based sauce? For shame.
>not making your own barbecue sauce
I spent 40 bucks on all organic ingredients to make a batch of basic barbecue sauce (tomato sauce, tomato paste, brown sugar, molasses, apple cider vinegar, dates/raisins, garlic powder and cayenne). I made 96 ounces, or 5.3 bottles of sweet baby rays. A marginal increase in cost for an exponential increase in quality.
People online say its really good, but to me it just tasted like pretty much any other store bought sauce. I didn't get the hype. The best store bought kind is the Jack Daniels sauce with the blue label. Works well with BBQ as well as steak. The green label is terrible on steak but good with BBQ.
Yeah I guess that was a bit over the top, srry.
I just get mad when bbq betas sperg out about good sauce saying "wahhhhh I don't like this sauce I only use sweet baby rayyyyysss. Wahhhhhhhh
i think its the best of the cheaper bbq sauces, better than kc masterpiece or bullseye. it is sweeter than most other sauces but uh it does have sweet in the name, so it kind of goes with the territory.
