Steve Burnham of BluesBBQ.net has done it again with yet another great tasting sauce.
From his stable of sauces that include his flagship products, Carolina Pepper Sauce, both Mild and Warm and Blue’s Habanero Reserve Hot Sauce – Steve has recently introduced his newest sauce, Blues BBQ Chipotle Mustard Pepper Sauce.
Wow! Chipotle (shoot me now, because I love Chipotle peppers) and mustard (again, I’m in Heaven) – you now have my full attention.
But wait… it’s not truly a “mustard” based sauce. I’m OK with that, now that I know.
There’s a hint of mustard from the tumeric in the ingredients, hence the “mustard” in the name.
But be aware, this is a “hot sauce” by all intents and purposes. And boy is it flavorful.
Here’s what Steve wrote on TheHotZoneOnline to clear things up about this new sauce:
There is going to be a lot of confusion with this one. It isn’t a mustard at all but is a hot sauce with a mustard taste. Truly unique. Pours like a hot sauce and tastes like a smokey, mustardy cayenne hot sauce. I probably should of named it “Blue’s Unique Majic Hot Sauce that somehow tastes like Mustard”. Once ya’ll try it, you’ll know what I mean. You’re gonna like this one!
You’re right, Steve! I do like this one.
I first tried Blues BBQ Chipotle Mustard Peppers Sauce on wings. Straight up. Folks, in my opinion, this is not a wing sauce.
This is a hot sauce, with a very unique flavor.
We poured some on chips, to get a feel for the flavors, and here’s what we thought:
Marilyn: This has all the earmarks of a great Carolina style Hot Sauce with plenty of vinegar and lots of heat. One of the predominant flavors I’m getting is black pepper and I don’t think there’s enough of the smokey Chipotle in the recipe. This sauce definitely has a depth of flavor not found in traditional Cayenne based hot sauces.
Brian: This sauce has some serious heat. On a scale of 1 – 10, I’d give it a 7. It’s both hot and vinegary. I do get a hint of mustard from the tumeric, but it’s not overwhelming. And while I’d like to have more mustard flavor in the sauce, it still works. I do agree with Marilyn that there’s not enough Chipotle in the mix because I love Chipotle.
Ingredients: water, vinegar, cayenne pepper, chipotle pepper, tumeric, paprika, sugar, salt, onion, garlic, spices and xanthan gum
