Favorite BBQ Sauce???

I'm do a bunch of ribs this weekend, and I started to obsess with what BBQ sauce to serve.  The guest list will have several folks that do not like spicy foods, so I'm looking for something with little heat factor.  I'm limited to grocery store brands in the Los Angeles area.  I've been partial to the Original Sweet Baby Rays in the past.  Any other suggestions?  Thanks!

    My favorite BBQ sauce is Bessinger's BBQ Sauce(Thomas, not the other brothers) Second would be Eastern Carolina Mop sauce. Then Blues Hog or Bone Sucking Sauce. I keep Sweet Baby Rays available for guests, just in case.

  • If you're having guests, go with SBR. Pretty much everyone likes it.

    I don't know how regional it is .. but I like Butcherblock Sauce out of Boston .. It can be salty, so I cut it with bone sucking.

    Sweet Baby Rays for most bang for your buck sauce. Sam's and local retailers routinely have it at 99 cents/16oz bottles.  I like Bone Sucking or Desperado (Ohio) when I'm just serving myself or really want to impress.

    Blues Hog! That stuff is dynamite. 

    I also just tried the Bone Suckin' Hot and it's good but Blues Hog is better. 

    I have not yet tried (but fully intend to) a mix of the two, maybe 60/40 or 70/30 BH/BS

    Cheers -

    BBQ Sauce

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Recipe By: Bill Cannon

    Ingredients:

    1 28 oz. bottle Hunt's Ketchup

    1 19 oz. bottle Jack Daniel's Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce

    1 can Rotel, Mexican Lime & Cilantro

    1 medium Onion , chopped

    2 tablespoons Garlic, minced

    2 cups Brown sugar, or 1 c Splenda Brown 

    1/2 cup Texas BBQ Rub

    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

    2 tablespoons Mustard, Yellow prepared

    1/4 cup Chili powder

    1/2 cup Pineapple juice

    2 bottles Water, from Empty ketchup bottle

    1 can Water, from empty Rotel can

    1 bottle Water, from empty BBQ sauce bottle


    Directions:

    1. Mix ketchup, BBQ sauce, Rotel and chili powder in a large pot.  Start cooking on the stove at medium temp.  Add the water (you will get out all of the extra sauce from the bottles this way).  Stir in garlic and brown sugar .  Stir in the rub.  Add the chopped onion, worchestershire sauce, and mustard.  Bring sauce to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.  Add pineapple juice.  Let simmer for at least 1 hour (longer is better).  I usually simmer mine for about 2 hours.

    2. Serve as a side dish for those who ask for it.  Use it in the brisket recipe.

    3. Makes about 4 quarts.  You will use some of it to finish off the brisket and the other to serve.  Keeps for days in the frig.

    4. For BBQ sauce for pork, delete the Rotel and put in 1 can of Peach Nectar.

    @Village Idiot, Ty so much. It ought to be near perfect as it can ever be, commin from you. You do have good taste.

    I am going to downsize that and see if I can fill just a couple of squeeze bottles at a time. Maybe I should just rinse out and reuse my BBQ bottles. Especially the big ass SBRs.
