  1. I just recently tried that.  It was on sale at the store for 99 cents so I was not expecting much but it was pretty good.

    It is not really the taste but the texture or lack of it. If it was thicker I would probally like it. I really like the taste of Bone Sucking Sauce, it is really thin, and I don't care for that.

  3. I like homemade sauces, but does anyone know of a good commercial, thinner sauce? More like a mop?

    I'm new to smoking, but I've been a BBQ sauce fan my whole life.  I just wanted to chime in because a lot of people are saying Sweet Baby Rays, which was my favorite until I tried Rufus Teague. 
     
  5. I copy down everything, every change I copy it all to a note pad just for smoking.  Makes for easy go back and see abilities.

    Well I am brand new to smoking, having done my first ( spare ribs) last Saturday, and have some in the fridge marinating for tomorrow.

    The sauce I used on Saturday, was Sweet Baby Rays' - Sweet and Spicey - and I really liked the taste, the sweetness with a little bit of bite was a neat combo I thought.

    Can't say it is my favorite yet, as I have so many to try yet, but I sure wouldn't mind using it again - which I will tomorrow.

    I'm a big fan of their sweet and spicey! Funny thing is I love to make pretty much everything from scratch, but if I was going to make my own bbq sauce I would want it to taste like the sweet and spicey, so I haven't delved into attempting to make my own.

    If you like sweeter sauce and want to use it like a mop, you might try original Head Country. The only thin I don't like about it is that it is SO thin so it might be what you are looking for
     
  9. For a quickie I mix some Sweet Baby Ray's and Open Pit. Other wise I  add some spices , brown sugar  and beer.

  14. About a month ago, I was doing ribs and realized that I didn't have any sauce and the Mrs. in not into the dry rub only.  I went digging through the pantry and found a bottle of Trader Joe's General Tao's sauce.

    It has a nice, Asian flair that beats most other bottled BBQ sauces.  Kinda like China meats Kansas City.

    Last week, we took a bunch of racks pre cooked/smoked to the Eastern Sierras during a multi family camping trip and every one preferred them over Sweet Baby Rays

    Still haven't tried Jeff's rub/BBQ sauce , but I will soon.  Money isn't there, were still climbing out of a deep hole.  In truth, because of this site, I owe that much to him.

  16. Jeff's rub and sauce for me.

    I was wondering which of the two (rub or sauce) gives more of a lasting taste and does everyone use the same dry ingredients in there rubs and sauces?
     
  17. I use a sauce recipe from Jeff's book, Memphis #1 (without the liquid smoke). People seem to really like it and it gives me something to do (other than drink beer) during the smoke. It also fills the kitchen with a nice aroma when it is cooking.

    For store bought SBR's honey chipotle or his regular is good.  We used Open Pit at a restaurant I worked at years ago & that was good stuff too.  For pulled pork my favorite is on Jeff's site called smokey chipotle or something like that.  For my friends who don't care for heat on their pulled pork I use Jeff's sauce with 1/4 the pepper & cut it with equal amount of diet coke.  As for ribs & brisket I like Jeff's sauce alone but I often tweak it for different flavors.  Its a great base to use & go in many directions.  Sometimes I sub chipotle instead of pepper or add honey or even good jam.  For a Carolina style pulled pork sauce the Scott's stuff is pretty good.  I just buy that for 2 bucks a bottle in case someone wants that kind of flavor.

    Hillsdale Bank BBQ of course from Hillsdale,Ks just outside KC. Simply the best I have ever tasted. Just the right balance of sweet and spice.
