Head Country BBQ Sauce
I'm a huge Blues Hog fan.... and I am wondering how Head Country compares? I am thinking about ordering a bottle, but I thought I would check with you all to see if I am just setting myself up for disappointment? :-P

Head Country Hot is my favorite sauce. I got some BH but it was just too sweet for me. So I mixed it with HCH and both taste even better.

Yeah, I agree with Smoothsmoke's assessment. If you like Blues Hog sauces, Head Country probably won't be sweet enough for ya.

The have a gift pack that has 3 of their sauces in it. I may pick it up just to give it a shot... and I can play around with mixing with BH

You've mentioned two of my favorites -- I use Blues Hog very lightly because it is so sweet, but it has a follow-on flavor that is fabulous and stays on the tongue. Head Country has an initial bite with interesting depth of flavor. I couldn't get along without both. I think the secret to sauce use is moderation and lots of it. I love good sauce, but both of these can be over-applied.

I am a big fan of Head Country sauce.

I also do as mentioned above and mix it with BH......great combo.

F Y I: Head Country uses smoke flavorings. For a smoke flavored sauce (of which
I'm not a particular fan) it's very good.

I mix BH, BH TENN RED, and headcountry, might not be great for comps, but the taste is awesome.

Blues Hog is OK, but it's too sweet and a bit too "distinctive" in flavor for my
taste. I'd take Head Country over it any day.

HC is pretty sweet, IMO, though not as sweet as BH. Another sauce that is similar to HC but not quite as sweet to my taste is Big Bob Gibson's red sauce.

You won't go wrong with HC...

It's a staple in my BBQ arsenal that's for it's originally from OKLAHOMA :clap2:

Not a big fan of sweet sauces, Head Country Original is one of my favorite store bought sauces. Stubbs Original is second.

Groundhog66 03-22-2011 01:15 PM

I like HC, and I also like it mixed 50/50 with BH.
