I don’t know but I think it was timing – he needed help - I was there and I would like to think I did not look or act insane though my wife might disagree.
My point though was I did not see him use Tiger Sauce and his sauce was in unmarked bottles. When I ate the ribs I do not have the vocabulary to tell you how perfectly “balanced” the taste was. Nothing really stood out – it was like it all fit perfect. Savory with no back taste at all. I did not taste any real heat. The other thing that stood out to me was how “wet” his sauce was like it was almost set but not dripping.
I know some comp cooks go for that “impact” bite but not these ribs. Smooth – very smooth taste.
