Default Stubbs BBQ Sauce

Where I live, commercial BBQ sauces are limited to brands like KC Masterpiece, Bullseye, Jack Daniels, Stubbs, Sweet Baby Rays...

How does Stubbs sauce compare with smaller companies like Blues Hog, or anyone else's sauce, for that matter?

I tried the regular Stubbs and the hickory bourbon...not a fan of the latter. The bourbon in it just throws it off too much, IMO.

JM, maybe I'll send you mine

Have not used Stubbs sauce but I did use their pork "mopping sauce" which was like using a salt lick mixed with a little water. I've avoided Stubb's other products since...

Just threw out a half of bottle of Stubbs.

becuase I just made & canned a 1/2 gal of my own sause. It's a recipe similar to this...

Most smaller company stuff can be purchased over the internet, so I stay away from the mainstream commercial stuff now.

For most non edumacated bbq enthusiasts, Stubbs Original makes them get moist, if you know what I mean. I think it's OK on ribs, but all my friends say my ribs are better with the Original.

So I put the sauce on after pulling, and keep mine dry.

IMO, Stubbs and KC are the best store bought. Blues Hog offers a sweeter taste that works great with their rub and brisket burnt end tips.

Stubbs has a lot of variety and each sauce is much different than another. The original is a good basic tomato sauce. Not too much of anything stands out to me. Very different than BH as far as sweetness and looks. KC Masterpiece is a complex flavor ride compared to any Stubbs variety. They're all good to someone. Just have to try and see. For those that like bbq spaghetti,I strongly suggest Stubbs original. Now for the best Stubbs products, the marinades are fantastic. Steve.

I like the Stubbs spicy the best. Compared to Blue Hog, it is not nearly as sweet and is much thinner than most BBQ sauces.

Stubbs Original is not as sweet as Blues Hog. It goes better with beef than pork in my opinion.

It is pretty good for an off-the-shelf sauce.

I've bought some Stubbs Original. I can get this at my USA Foods store. I quite like it, but at 9 Bucks a bottle imported, it's a bit of a treat. I just bought some Bull's Eye Memphis! Can't wait to try it!

I find the original a little 'tangy' for my taste. Now the spicy I mop on a pork loin yesterday was freakin excellent. Enough that I took 3 orders for pork loins to be picked up next weekend by 2 different folks that tasted the samples my gf gave out at the resteraunt she works at.
