Default Go to BBQ sauce?

What is your "go to" sauce?

Homemade Recipe? Dressed up name brand? Special order? Straight unaltered store bought? BARGAIN BRAND ?!?

Me? I go with the store bought! I stick to the Saint Louis staple, Maul's Original most of the time. Straight from the bottle, occasionally adding a splash of my choice of A.B. brand beverage. Maul's is my #1 "go to".

However not being my "go to", I do create a concoction of 50/50 Maul's and Sweet Baby Ray's, doctored up with some secret () ingredients. That sauce potion almost always gets mixed up to go on my ribs.

Still make a hot one but not the sweet one since I found out Sweet Baby Ray's tastes the same.

> What is your "go to" sauce?

Depends on the purpose...

Home/Personal/Family Use:

Hotdogs, Hamburgers -> Head Country Original or Pot Luck*
Brunswick Stew -> Head Country Original
BBQ Pork (whether picnic, butt, whole shoulder, ham, etc.) -> Our competition pork sauce published many times here, or Blues Hog Tennessee Red straight up
BBQ Pork Ribs -> Our competition rib sauce published many times here
BBQ Beef (whether brisket or chuckie) -> Our competition beef sauce [dare I say it] published many times here

When entertaining:

I usually have an assortment of sauces, starting with the 3 competition sauces above, plus I'll usually have some Blues Hog Tennessee Red, and some Blues Hog Original, and some Scotts, and some Maurices' Piggy Park, our Pot Luck*, plus 2 or 3 others like Head's Red or Big Ron's, etc.

*Pot Luck -> this is what I do with leftover BBQ sauce, I mix them all together and they're stored in a gallon jug in the fridge. It's about 1/2 of my competition sauces and the other 1/2 everything else. Frankly it's VERY good and is my daughters favorite.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Montgomery Inn. Great stuff on its own or as a base. Very simple, natural ingredients.

Head Country Original is my family's overall favorite. WalMart has the best price for it around here.

This group here taught me about mixing the Blues Hog Original with Blues Hog TN Red which is my favorite.
