Too many to list, but I like many for many different reasons. A few I like currently are LC's, Zarda, Cowtown (Ok. Joes), Sweet Baby Rays and Stubbs.

I probably have 10 different bottles of sauces from Dreamland (haven't tried it yet), Big Dutts (scored it for $.99), Longhorn, etc. I have a lot.

I also have about 5 or 6 bottles of sauces I've made that I've been experimenting with in my fridge too.

Many commercial sauces don't contain real sugar. I prefer sauces that do. Stubbs, Head Country are my favorites. All sugar, no HFCS.

Read the labels for sugar and sodium content. SBR is HFCS based, so I try to avoid, even though it tastes good.

It's not easy to find outside central New York, but Dinasour BBQ is fantastic. No HFCS, no oil, and no chemical preservatives My second choice if I run out is to buy based on the ingredients listed. Again, as long as corn syrup and/or oil aren't the first two ingredients I'll give it a try.

For the life of me, I can't figure out why Sweet Baby Rays or Stubbs is so popular with the Bretheren.

As far as sauces that can be had anywhere, I suppose I would have to vote Sweet Baby Ray's. Just about every widely available sauce has liquid smoke in it, but SBR doesn't seem as strong to me.

For locally available, believe it or not this one is actually pretty good.

With the GF being allergic to all forms of msg, I have been using Two Fat Guys, and recently used Big Butz, although their use of high fructose has me unhappy - despite the yummy taste, I prefer natural sugars. Will likely be making my own as there are few good options for us.

If I didn't make my own, Bulls Eye Original. That was my go to sauce before I started making my own. I sometimes mixed in a little Pace Picante (medium or hot) for a little kick.

All these ingredients may be regional thing
Turns out sweet, tangy, a bit spicy. We use it on everything comin off the uds!! If we're doin chicken wings we substitute habenero hot sauce. How much actually depends on how many beers we've speared!!
