Busha Browne’s Jamaican Jerk Smokey Barbeque Sauce

Busha Browne’s Jamaican Jerk Smokey Barbeque Sauce

Busha Browne Jerk Barbecue Sauce

I love Busha Browne’s products from Jamaica. I especially love jerk seasonings and rubs and sauces.

So when Busha Browne sent me a bottle of their Jamaican Jerk Smokey Barbeque Sauce, I couldn’t wait to try it.

We were doing ribs this weekend, and so jerk ribs it was. And if you’ve ever had ribs done jerk style, you know it’s like no other rib.

(We also made some Jerk Chicken Quesadillas…)

We’re talking baby back ribs with the heat, spice and intense flavor that only jerk has. These are NOT your father’s ribs. 🙂

Jerk BBQ Sauce from Busha Browne

Ingredients: tomato paste, water, jerk seasoning (escallions, scotch bonnet peppers, sea salt, pimento, black pepper, thyme leaves, cane vinegar, assorted spices), cane vinegar, cane sugar, natural hickory smoke flavor, spices, sea salt, modified food starch, caramel (colour), grapefruit seed extract (preservative).

Busha Browne Jerk BBQ texture

Texture & Appearance: Very thick. Really nice to brush onto or paste onto foods on the grill.

Taste Straight Up: The jerk seasoning flavor is strong and up front, but you can tell you are still tasting a BBQ sauce. So in that vein, this is a light-hearted jerk flavor… with the BBQ sauce being more predominant. Satisfying and comforting.

Heat Level: Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – Not as hot as a straight up jerk paste or rub. More of a kicked up BBQ sauce, jerk style. True to form.

The Ribs

busha browne jerk bbq ribs

The sauce was thick and gloppy, which allowed to really cling well to the ribs.

But the heat in the sauce was a bit overpowering for the delicate pork flavor of the baby backs.

Chicken Quesadillas

As good as it was on the ribs, it really lit up and shined on some chicken Quesadillas.

busha browne jerk bbq chicken quesadilla

Just some simple roasted chicken from the deli, cut up and heated in a pan with the sauce. Delicious. No cheese, nothing extra, just the chicken and sauce. (Oh, I did add a few sprinkles of dry jerk seasoning that I had on hand).

Final Thoughts

I prefer my jerk to be an authentic paste or rub or a combination of both… but if you want all of the great jerk flavor in a milder BBQ sauce, Busha Browne’s Jamaican Jerk Smokey Barbeque Sauce is a winner – you can’t go wrong with this one.

Overall rating: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars – Authentic jerk flavors combined with a versatile BBQ sauce make this one a winner! Highly recommended!

High River Sauces launches new Rattler Barbeque Sauce

High River Sauces Launches New Rattler BBQ Sauce

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 18th, 2014

Chef Chris Santos, judge on Food Network’s popular “Chopped” series and chef and partner of Beauty & Essex and Stanton Social, collaborates with Steve Seabury of High River Sauces to launch Rattler Barbeque Sauce – the barbeque sauce with a bite!

Showcasing the bold, fresh flavors that the award-winning hot sauce company High River Sauces is known for, Santos and Seabury have created a custom-made barbeque sauce with the perfect amount of sweet heat. Rattler Barbeque Sauce features spicy Cascabel Chile Peppers, which, like the rattlesnake, are known for their distinctive bite – the name Cascabel actually translates to rattle.

Rattler Barbeque Sauce

The intrinsic smokiness of this complex pepper is paired with vine-ripened tomatoes, rich molasses, robust coffee, as well as organic honey and raisins for sweetness. This unique combination creates a dynamic, well-rounded barbeque sauce that pairs well with anything from pulled pork and burgers to glazed grilled salmon or as any addition to your favorite foods.

The sauce debuted at the Fancy Food Show on Sunday, June 29th and will be available online and through retailers in the coming weeks. Please visit www.santoscooks.com or www.highriversauces.com for more information.

Sugar Hill Smokehouse Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce

“Sugar Hill Smokehouse Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce is just the right mix to make you a pit master at your next BBQ. It’s all natural with pure cane sugar and molasses for the sweet; we’ve added tomatoes, mustard and vinegar for the tangy.”

Sugar Hill Smokehouse Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce

sugarhill sweet and tangy bbq sauce

Ingredients: tomato paste, water, vinegar, sugar, prepared mustard, molasses, salt, liquid smoke, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, spices, serrano pepper mash, cayenne pepper mash, tamarind extract.

We’ve not made any secrets that our favorite BBQ sauces have a sweet component. Sugar Hill brings that sweetness to the plate, with a mild level of tang and a good bit of spice. Let’s see how Sugar Hill fared…

Ribs, ribs, ribs

We smoked 4 racks of baby back ribs to test out three BBQ sauces and a dry rubbed rack.

How did Sugar Hill Smokehouse Sweet and Tangy turn out on the ribs? Well… we think pretty darn good. Read on.

sugarhill sweet and tangy closeup

Texture and Appearance: The color is dark red, and the consistency is almost like a tomato sauce, or tomato puree – a fairly thick texture. The fine grind of ingredients presents a nice sauce that has a good body that is flecked with tiny bits of pepper and spices. Classic.

Taste Straight Up: A sweet, tomato-y flavor is up front with just a hint of vinegar. It’s not overly sweet, but does impart a homemade flavor. Surprisingly, the vinegar flavor is mild – not overbearing.

Considering the ingredient list includes serrano and cayenne pepper mashes, I was surprised that the spiciness of this sauce is subdued. The more you eat, the more the chile pepper tingle shows up – but only slightly. Aptly named – it’s more sweet than tangy. Sweetly simple.

Our baby back ribs were started in the oven at 275º for about 90 – 120 minutes – then we moved them onto the smoker to finish cooking and get layered with sauces. (Smoking at 230 – 250º for another 2 hours.) This is a great time-saver for the backyard cook, as no one will ever know you started the ribs in the kitchen!

sugarhill sweet and tangy rib rack

Taste on Ribs: Great sweet flavor. The sweetness held up nicely, but in the end, the tang was lost on us. As for smokiness – we did pick up on our own peach wood smoke, but the liquid smoke was a tad overbearing.
Lesson learned: If there is any liquid smoke in a sauce, we do not need to add more to that by using wood chunks.

Sugar Hill Smokehouse Sweet and Tangy caramelized nicely, held its body, and ultimately had a dull, matte finish. Very appealing.

Final Thoughts: Rated 3.5 out of 5 Stars – We’re so close to a 4 star rating, but have to deduct for the strong liquid smoke flavor.
Normally, I don’t mind a little bit of liquid smoke, but in this case I’d like to see Sugar Hill cut back on the smoke, and kick up the “tang” factor.

This BBQ sauce is worthy of keeping on hand anytime – it’s remarkably useful with an authentic BBQ taste. And we can assume it tastes just as good on chicken and pulled pork.

You can find Sugar Hill Smokehouse Sweet and Tangy on Facebook and Twitter and you can order online from them at http://sugarhillsmokehouse.com.
