Perfect 10 (aka Carnivore Que)

OK Todd, I have to give some honest feedback on this stuff. After hearing a lot of people rave about it I want to chime in as well. I have had this jar on the shelf for a month waiting for the perfect opportunity. What better chance to test a new BBQ sauce than on some fresh pulled pork?

I put a pretty generous amount on a pulled pork sandwich, added a few pickles, and sat down to give it an honest taste test.

My friend, you nailed it. The color is nice, the consistency is perfect for a finishing sauce, and the flavor is very well rounded. The first thing I noticed is the garlic flavor - which is balanced with a touch of sweetness and then a peppery finish.

This sauce is terrific with pulled pork. I am going to try it next on chicken and ribs, and will give more feedback at that time. But for now - I am impressed. And now I am off to build another sammie!

Thanks for the jar, it really is everything that everyone has said so far.

    :woohoo:

    i'm still waiting for the best occasion
  • How does it fare to other top ranked sauces like Blues Hog. The look seems to be much thinner.

    That wasn't green or flower...and I have fluorescent overheads to deal with.

    It is much thinner than Blues Hog. I would compare to consistency of it to original Arthur Bryant's, maybe even a little thinner.

    This is not a sweet sauce by any stretch, but it has a much more robust and well rounded flavor than Gate's or Bryant's.

    I agree on the pulled pork when I tried it. I think it would be great with some smoked sausage like we had at Jacks.
    Guess what is on the egg? :whistle:

    Scampi?

    lol

    I'm guessing sausages. That was a good lunch.

    You try that honey yet?

    No. Some of that is going in my next batch of beans. LOL Yep a few sausages. How about those beans though at Jacks? Mine are really close to that.

    Thanks for the kind words Fidel. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

    So why don't you put it in bigger jars???

    I'll be out by Monday at this pace.

    Buster Dog BBQ,

    It is thinner than most but the flavour stays with you a long time. As Fidel says, it's not particularly sweet,
    it has tang and heat but it just stays on the palette.

  • Can you share the recipe? or link?
  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    I wish I could. It is a recipe that Big'Un has developed and is taking to market.

    A few of us have been lucky enough to be a test market for him prior to the official bottling. With any luck it will be on store shelves in a few months.
