I tried about a dozen different summers this summer. I have the seemingly unique trait (at least on /ck/) of finding at least one good quality about anything. It could be price, convenience, taste, maybe I just think the packaging is cool, etc.
Pork chops and ribs are great with sticky, sweet sauces. Pulled pork deserves a watery, spicy, vinegary sauce that gets down into all the nooks and crannies. Chicken can take just about anything. Beef ribs are best when smoked with a dry rub, and then served with the sauce on the side. Same with brisket.
Barbecue is my favorite style of cooking. Bar none.
i'm not sure if they still have this. i think they changed the recipe to make it taste like sweet baby ray's.
true kraft original is incredibly distinct. no other sauce tastes like it. that tastes is very nostalgic, it immediately reminds me of childhood backyard barbecues.
they're not bad. they mostly taste of smoke and sugar so you can't use them for everything though.
stubb's bbq sauce is pretty good, it has less sugar and smoke, tastes more like a spiced tomato sauce.
The Trader Joe's KC Style sauce is actually pretty good. It's not overly sweet which makes it pretty versatile.
>buying a sauce with a label
>not the most artisinal underground Sriracha based sauce, only made if batches of 2.75 unlabeled jars and sold out of art house cafes during bi-monthly lunch special
Buy it. Taste it. Love it.
We wanted to create affordable gourmet food
that was the best in their category. Albertson's supermarkets said that our sauces were all home runs. Walmart senior sauce buyer said that it was the best she has ever tasted in her life. Many great reviews from California butcher shops to New York delis. There is no better. Everything else is just motor oil.
Rudy's bbq sauce. I've tried to reproduce it with cracked pepper and some other spices and vinegar but it never turns out the same.
I actually saw a national taste test a few years back and Stubbs was #1 and Kraft was #2. Kraft actually beat a shit ton of smaller fancier brands. I was surprised. (I think Sweet Baby Ray's was #3)
we got one near me, near the shore mall in jersey. its p good, i like it.
actually its like an hour drive for me since i live in lincolns chest, but its kinda worth it when you crave bbq.
Dunno if this counts but it's really good and was a random find, at a gas station of all places. Sometimes one can find interesting things at those places.
