Deaf Man’s BBQ Sauce: Blend and Mango Blend

May is National Bike Month, National Pregnancy Awareness Month (wha?), and in some circles it’s also National Shoe Month.

But what we’re really into this month is National Barbecue Month! Oh yeah.

That means it’s also BBQ Sauce Reviews Month at HotSauceDaily.com. First up is…

Deaf Man’s BBQ Sauce

Deaf Man’s BBQ Sauce is the brainchild of Rasool Raheem of Los Angeles, CA. Rasool is indeed deaf, a chef, and a bbq sauce crafter.

Deaf Man’s BLEND BBQ Sauce, and MANGO BLEND BBQ Sauce are just two of the seven (7) flavors of BBQ sauces he’s crafted so far.

Deaf Man’s BLEND BBQ Sauce

On their website, they call this Honey Mustard Blend. “A combination of sweet and spicy accents with a hint of mustard makes a mouth-watering blend so versatile you’ll want to put it on everything!”

Marilyn: This is not a mild BBQ sauce at all. The texture is nice and silky and the first impression is of sweetness from the honey. The vinegar is in the background, which I like, but the habanero gives it too much sting for my taste.

My overall rating would be Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – I love the texture, but the flavor is not too different from other BBQ sauces I’ve had, and the habanero just bites too hard, even after cooking.

Brian: This is a thick sauce that clings nicely. It’s indeed peppery and pretty spicy… if this is indeed Deaf Man’s “mild” sauce… it has a kick. I think it would work better as a wing sauce.

My overall rating would also be Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – Two stars for a good start. Pretty spicy for the bottom of the line up. But not a bad start.

Deaf Man’s MANGO BLEND BBQ Sauce

“Mango with a hint of mustard makes this sauce unique. The flavor of fresh mango in each bottle and a little extra heat to add to your plate. Use it on everything. The longer the sauce sits, the hotter it gets!!!”

Deaf Man's Mango Blend BBQ Sauce

Deaf Man’s Mango Blend BBQ Sauce

Ingredients: tomato concentrate, mango nectar (water mango puree, citric acid, natural flavor, ascorbic acid), honey, brown sugar, molasses, vinegar, hfc, corn syrup, soy sauce (water, rice, soy bean, salt), contains 2% of garlic, onion, habanero, salt, spices including: mustard, turmeric), water, anchovies, natural hickory.

Marilyn: I think this sauce coats very well on the skewers. The extra sweetness from the Mango adds a welcome flavor and stickiness to the chicken, and it’s perfect on the pineapple slices.

Overall rating: Rated 3 out of 5 Stars – A step up from the “Blend” sauce. My favorite of the two.

Brian: Great cling factor on the skewers with a nice added sweetness from the mango. A step up from the “Blend” – I agree.

My overall rating: Rated 3 out of 5 Stars – I agree with Marilyn. (Don’t tell her.) Wonderful sauce that does its job well.

There are actually a few reasons why the sauce was named Deaf Man’s BBQ—the most obvious of which we’ve already covered. Though by that same logic, it could have been called “Snappy Dresser’s BBQ Sauce” or “Excellent Bowler’s BBQ Sauce.” The other thing that convinced Rasool to name it Deaf Man’s BBQ Sauce was because he knew that anyone serving the sauce to family or friends would know what it’s like to be deaf: In those moments between the first bites and the roars of delight, there is absolute silence.
The sauce is that good.
