Default Barbeque Sauce??

Just some thoughts on BBQ sauce..
1) Has anybody handed in off the shelf brands like (Masterpiece, Jack Daniels, Stubbs etc) with very good results??

2) has anybody tried to make a home version of Blues Hog??
(what is so unique about this sauce?)

I havent seen anyone do particularly well with an off the shelf brand
in either a sauce portion of a contest or on the meat (straight up sauce
without thinning or mixing, etc), as long as you dont count something
like Head Country or Blues Hog as off the shelf. I'm sure someone
somewhere has a time or two...

I think Saiko was working on a Blues Hog knock-off a while back. I
never heard how that went.

I use Jack Daniels Original BBQ Sauce as a base for one of our comp sauces. It does well enough that we keep doing it...

Do you add heat at all?

I know of a few teams that use Sweet Baby Rays almost straight up and do pretty well with it.

I know quite a few teams that use off the shelf stuff for a base. Remember that most judges are used to a certain "taste" of a sauce from backyard bbq's and picnics. They are used to the major label sauces. Don't overlook that folks were raised on Open Pit, KC Masterpiece, et al.

I've used an off the shelf sauce as a base. I didn't see much difference between starting with that or starting with ketchup.

No lie. I know someone that went to McDonald's and bought some McRib sauce. (Actually manager gave them some in a soda cup.) They scored a top 5 for ribs that weekend. I went the next day to buy a gallon and they wouldn't sell me one!

I met a team that uses Kraft BBQ sauce for their base and added almost nothing, just a little heat, and they seemed to do okay. No huge GC finishes, but, plenty of calls from what they showed me.

There is something to Blues Hog, in terms of how it is made that gives the meat an unbelievable sheen, I have messed around with how to get a sauce to have that shine and have had no success. I have found a similar sauce, whose flavor I prefer, and talked with the maker, he assures me it is in the processing and cooking methods.
