this a 2 part question please.

1. Have you won with using a sauce sold at an average store say like Krogers or Walmart.

2. I am wanting to try some new sauces for a base to build on for Comps and instead of me going out buying to much. Could you give me some good sauces that you may like that I can use as a good base to build up on.

Current sauces I have used or use are;
head county - original
blues hog - original and Red
smokin guns
the slabbs
cow town

Sweet Baby Rays is a pretty common sauce to use as a base...

Your list is good enough. I don't know what part of town in Kentucky you're in, but Mark's Feed Store BBQ Sauce (red one) is pretty good stuff.

+1 on the Big Ron's, it's got a nice kick to it.

Shameless plug worning, but we use Rooftop BBQ Sauce as base and work off that for different categories. Anyone else?:grin:

KY? Really? I would think the Methyl Cellulose would give an off taste...:D

How much consideration is given for your sauces in competitions? It seems to me it would be difficult because some may like sweet, hot, vinegar or salty.

Thanks,

Big fan of N Carolina Vinegar, but it seems like all I see around the midwest is sweet tomato sauces, However, I did get a second in Ribs once with a bit of "shine" in it. I have judged before, to me ribs start tasting like sugar candy on a bone with all that sweet sauce.

Not me, but, I have seen quite a few teams using Cattlemen's as a base, then doctoring from there. It is a pretty common food service sauce, and not too bad, not distinctive either, which is why I think it is popular.

SBR is the only sauce we can get from a local grocery that we use in comps. But it's never used 100%. Always a blend.

One time, two years ago, a local Kroger carried Blues Hog. But once it was gone they didn't restock. :sad:
