HSW 045 – BBQ Sauce Roundtable

It’s all about the Barbecue Sauce in this episode. We’ve assembled a roundtable discussion with some of the biggest names in BBQ sauce reviews to talk about styles, flavors, ingredients and favorites in the world of BBQ sauce.

We begin with a general discussion of regional styles of sauces, what our guest like and don’t like in a BBQ sauce. Then we move onto specific ingredients, how they conduct their reviews, and finally, what are some of their favorite BBQ sauces.

You’ll want to write down the recommendations – a veritable gold mine of great BBQ sauces – as suggested by these seasoned BBQ sauce reviewers. Here’s the list of our guests and some of the many sauces they mention on the show:

Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce – Hot Sauce Review

New Premium Hot Sauces from Louisiana Brand

We all know the familiar bottle with the Red Dot saying “One Drop Does It”® on the Original Louisiana Brand Hot Sauce – your basic cayenne pepper, vinegar and salt hot sauce.

They’ve recently launched a line of premium sauces called “Louisiana Gold“. And the big news is they’ve blended their peppers with Tabasco peppers and “spirit vinegar” to create a bold new taste. The term ‘spirit vinegar’ is sometimes reserved for the stronger variety (5% to 20% acetic acid) made from sugar cane or from chemically produced acetic acid – source: Wikipedia There is a sweetness in the Red Pepper Sauce that I feel makes it much better than the original.

I ordered the 4 pack gift set

This set consists of the Red Pepper Sauce, and a Green Pepper sauce both blended with Tabasco peppers, as well as their new Wasabi Pepper Sauce and their Horseradish Pepper Sauce. More on those flavors in another post. But this 4 pack comes in a beautiful, award-winning box. I went straight for the Red Pepper Sauce first.

I’ve never been a big fan of Louisiana style sauces. To me they all taste about the same – salty with mild heat. But this new Gold Pepper Sauce is so much richer tasting that I’ve become a fan of it after the first taste. It’s still a bit salty, and the heat level is slightly higher (than Original) with the addition of the Tabasco peppers, but there’s a hint of sweetness to it. Probably from the spirit vinegar.

We made some hot wings using the Louisiana Gold Red Pepper Sauce with a little butter, and they turned out very tasty!
While I can’t honestly say this would be my go-to-everyday hot sauce… I will use it whenever I want an authentic Louisiana-style sauce. I can’t wait to crack open the other 3 bottles and tell you all about them as well.

Wickles Pickles Review

Wickles – “A wickedly delicious pickle”

Wickles Pickles

Wickles Pickles

These pickles are the tastiest I’ve ever had. With nice spicy heat, and sweetness and crunch, they’re a big winner with me!

Wickles (short for “Wickedly delicious pickles!”) are a unique blend of dill, garlic, and sweetness with just enough heat to keep you reaching for more. Wickles Pickles are the most exciting new pickle product in years. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Ingredients: cucumbers, sugar, vinegar, cider vinegar, dehydrated garlic, dehydrated pepper, calcium chloride, alum, natural flavors, garlic oil, polysorbate 80, yellow 5

Weekend of Fire 2009 Review By Shawn Mundell

Jungle Jim’s 3rd Annual Weekend of Fire – A First Timer’s View

This was my friend Shawn’s first hot sauce show, and you can tell, like many of us, he was a “kid in a candy store”. Read on to see how his day went… Brian

The Weekend of Fire.

This was my first hot sauce event and I felt like a kid at Christmas. The first word that comes to mind is WOW. I was just in wonderment of it all.
There were a lot of nice people and good hot sauces, too many to remember. I apologize to everyone I missed.
