Hi
I'd be happy to get your recommendation for a bbq sauce.
Preferably low on salt and sugar and not spicy hot.
Also if it can be bought on Amazon since that's mostly how I can get stuff delivered.
I've never tired using sauce during a cook. Going through stores here in Israel I found a very small selection of sauces. Mostly heinz and alike. And reading the label I saw a lot of salt and sugar in the ingredients. Also a lot preservatives and other chemicals I didn't recognize.
So if you can recommend a good healthy tasty sauce I'd be one happy guy!

I would strongly recommend experimenting with your own sauces. You can google all sorts of base recipes, and then add or subtract ingredients according to your own taste. It's not difficult to do at all, and it actually can be fun to do. You then have the added benefit of bragging rights over your own recipe. Good luck!

I don't often use sauce, but recently came across some Brownwood Farms products (available on Amazon). I highly recommend them. The Cherry BBQ sauce is outstanding. Slight variation from the norm. Slight cherry hit, slight heat, very flavorful. I've had it on pork and chicken.

I used their Wing Slatherin' Sauce on some grilled chicken wings and was very impressed. You can't find or make another wing sauce with this flavor and calorie/nutrition content.

Good luck hunting.

I agree with @mjpmap! Marking your own sauces gives you control over the ingredients that go into your sauce. It's a lot easier than you may think and less expensive than commercial sauces.

In our house we typically keep two sauces in our fridge at all times:

First is my version of Adam Perry Lang's BBQ sauce: http://www.adamperrylang.com/recipes/apl-bbq-sauce

Second is Alabama White Sauce:

So that's an interesting idea I'll try.
Some of the ingredients are not familiar to me. I'll have to look them up.

Very interesting sauces. Will try to make them. But I'm also not sure I can find all the ingredients here. I don't recognize all of them so I'll Google to see what they are.

Since I got my stick burner NO Need for SAUCE... As others have said make your own then you know what's in it. There is nearly an infinite number of sauce recipes to choose from and adjust to your liking.

Have made the Shack Attack & Griffin's. Both good. Love the Shack Attack, but it needs to sit for at least a week to mellow out before you use it. Also it's not sweet at all, so if you're looking for a sweet sauce, pass this one by.

As mentioned above, making your own sauce is just another facet of BBQ and cooking in general (if you like sauce). You could use some basics from regional sauces here in the states and put your local regional twist on them. That's pretty cool I think. I like the Salt Lick BBQ sauce out of the ones I've had that were store bought. It says it's "all natural and gluten free". I dunno.

OferL, just did a quick look for unique veggies/fruits in Israel. You have something called a black Galaxy tomato, and an Anna Apple. Have never heard of them or seen them here in the States. Either would provide a base for barbecue sauce when cooked down, or live dangerously and mix them. Try a few spices unique to your region, add an Israeli wine and then post it here to make us all jealous!

Here is a list of reviewed sauces if that will help.
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14889

My personal favorites that meet your recommendation request of commercial sauces are "Head Country Original" and Sanderson Foods "Texas-Texas ... Good to the Bone"

But there are many good BBQ sauce recipes that the Brethren will share with you.

.

.


Tailgate BBQ Sauce
Ingredients:

1 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced

Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil in a saucepan. Cook until transparent. Add vinegar and bring to low boil, add salt, pepper, paprika, and mustard, mix well. Add sugar and Worcestershire sauce and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes. Serve warm or baste while warm.

I think the best bet for you being in Israel is to make your own sauce especially if you have a very specific profile you are looking for.

I understand what you're saying. Taking a recipe base and making changes with local ingredients. That's what I normally do with food. Didn't think of sauce that way... Opened my eyes to new directions. Thanks!

Another lover of the Alabama White sauce here.
Its delicious on Lamb and Chicken.
The flavour would carry on meats in wraps etc very well.
I got the recipe here.

Thanks Aussie. I see what you did to the sauce in the chicken thread. Very cool!
Didn't get your reference to pomegranate juice.

Reduce it with cooking drippings or stock and make a sauce out of it:becky:
