What BBQ sauce to buy this Memorial Day Season?

Updated: May 25, 2023

Let's face it...

everybody has different taste buds and different preferences for BBQ sauce. Some people don't like BBQ sauce, some people like just a little during the cooking process, some people like to slather the meat down in BBQ sauce.

At the end of the day it's all about what each individual person prefers. However, if you are grilling this summer, I highly recommend using bbq sauce during the cooking process. It really enhances the flavor profile and the taste of the meat. Most people who say they don't like BBQ sauce will not even notice that you used sauce during the cooking process. The trick is to lightly baste the meat in the last 15 mins of the cooking process. The sauce will set, meaning firm up, and enhance the color of your meat and make it more desirable.

If you are still using Kraft BBQ sauce or Sweet Baby Ray's, it's time to step your game up. My rule of thumb when trying new sauces is....if it don't come in a glass bottle, I ain't buying it.

Here is my top 5 list of BBQ sauce that you can find in local stores or order online.

#1 Blues Hog original BBQ sauce. Best sauce on the planet. Can be bought at any Ace Hardware or Academy Sports.

#2 Rufus Teague BBQ Sauce

Can be bought at Kroger or Walmart.

#3 Trader Joes Organic Sriracha & Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce. Can be bought at Trader Joes.

#4 Bone Suckin Sauce. Can be bought at Lowes or Ace Hardware.

#5 My personal favorite...Poodah Sauce made by Smoking Cade. Can be bought at
