One of the things that I noticed on sauces as both a CBJ and competitor is that if something stands out - like say pineapple juice (as I had one time that was really annoying), you will get marked down. So starting with a great sauce like Swamp Boys/Blues Hog/Fine Swine/Granny's/Countryside... Will help you greatly in that nothing stands out and they just have great flavor. They blend well with most rubs (WCO my favorite) and complement the meats. As many have mentioned, tenderness is still the key with nothing else annoying will lead you to higher scores IMHO. After all it is not a sauce contest. Do not be afraid to thin the sauce with water/apple juice to not get a "heavy" sauce flavor.

Thanks for the info on sauces! Thinning was my first thought, with apple juice of course.

Calmdowneight here's what I do try out different sauces. You have to have someone other than yourself to do the comparison. So what are your options? Contests cost too much Family and friends won't normally tell the truth. My solution is to have a group of kids try your different sauces cooked on meat. The main reason why I go this route is kids will give you a honest opinion. Go to your local cub/boy/girl scouts, a big brothers/sisters or maybe your church tell them what you want to do and see if they would accommodate you. Not only will you get honest feedback but you also might get to help a little one.

Bubba, that is a great idea. Children are always honest no matter who's feelings it hurts!

Blues Hog and Swamp Boys do well for me.

Yes, the vinegar is great to use at home especially on yard bird but the original is perfect for competition.

Now that you've reminded me of that, if I had a way to get some in my hands before Saturday without paying overnight shipping I would do it again. For now, I think I am stuck using Blues Hog, Head Country, Sucklebusters, or Texas Pepper Jelly. Those are the only brands that I either have on hand, or have access to locally.



True story. Also, I don't think Smokey Mountain gets enough love. Adding it to the mix has been amazing for us.
Craig's sauce straight out of the bottle works well, especially on chicken assuming the other flavors already on it work well with the sauce. Adding a little rib candy to it and warming it will also help the sauce lay out nice and even.

So the rib candy or the bird bath isn't something you could use by itself on chicken? I have some of those in my refrigerator right now, but none of the bbq sauce itself.

That's what the bird bath is made for. Rib candy can work as well. If you want to try the sauce I know Zinger Hardware in Austin stocks it.
