What is your go-to store bought BBQ sauce?
Until recently, I’ve always thought BBQ sauce was BBQ sauce, other than the three different types, KC, Memphis, and Carolina. We bought what ever was on sale, KC Masterpiece, Kraft, etc.
A couple weeks ago, I smoked a couple Boston Butts, and decided to make some pulled pork sandwiches. When I was at the store, I decided to splurge and get a more expensive BBQ sauce. We went with “The Shed” sauce (the restaurant from Biloxi). It was damn good.
Tonight, I decided to try another sauce when we made pulled pork baked potatoes (like Rax use to make), we went with another sauce, “Sticky Fingers”. It was awesome as well.

I am sold on the smaller batch sauces.

What other brands should I try?

re: What is your go-to store bought BBQ sauce?
If it’s for pulled pork specifically, I honestly don’t like any store bought sauce. I love the taste of smoked pork and I think all the store bought sauces just completely drown out the flavor I just worked 12 hours to create. I like to make Aaron Franklin’s vinegar sauce and just put a little bit on the pork after it’s on my sandwich.

I do like Rufus Teague Touch of Heat for beef, etc. you can get it on amazon and I’ve seen it at Bucee’s if you have one near you.

Sweet Baby Ray’s is kind of middle of the road. It’s not quite a mass produced sauce, but not quite a small batch sauce. My favorite Carolina sauce is made by SBR’s.
I don’t like spicy sauce. I’d rather add the heat myself.

Pulled pork should get a homemade vinegar sauce. I like stubb’s spicy for store bought dip for something like burgers or chicken tenders.

Blues Hog original is 1st and it’s not close for me. I also enjoy Head Country.

You can find Blues Hog at Goodwood and sometimes calandros.

KC Masterpiece is likely my favorite OTC sauce.

I dont like overly thick/sweet sauces. So most of the time I buy Stubbs. My Rouses also carries Big Mikes BBQ sauce and I use that one as well.

Blue's Hog original or Champion Blend. Prices around here when it was at Alexander's were ridiculous though. Order from BBQ superstore, $25-26 for a gallon of it. Sometimes Amazon will have it for that price, but they will also have the half gallon for a dollar cheaper so watch what you are buying.

I mix Sweet Baby Ray's & Williamson Brothers in a 1-1, 2-3, or 3-4 ratio depending on what being cooked.

SBR's is too sweet & WB is too acidic. When mixed together, they provide a nice balanced sauce.

Trader Joe's Sriracha and Roasted Garlic

Kroger actually makes a pretty good Texas style sauce.

I usually just make my own though. It's too easy.
