margin, my favorite is Head Country. It's a well balanced sauce but with quite a bit
of hickory smoke flavorings in it. I like this on hamburgers when I'm not in the mood
for ketchup and mustard... Otherwise, I really dont need extra smoke flavor.
For a vinegar sauce, so far I haven't found anything over the counter in the league
with Blues Hog Tennessee Red. It is FABULOUS all by itself. We use it straight up
on pork and it is included as part of our competition sauce. It's going to be tough to
find a better vinegar sauce anywhere/anytime. Note: It is spicy!
Lake Dogs is spot on, it really does depend what you are looking for in a sauce, and if you want a sweet, spicy, vinegar-based, thick or thin sauce, with or without smoke flavour.
LakeDogs: I have found another sauce that I would say is a competitor with blues hog red, and it is Smihfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q Grilling & Dipping Sauce (http://www.smithfieldschicken.com
