Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory & Brown Sugar Bbq Sauce

Must Try

I Like Bbq Sauce With A More Smoky Flavor How Can I Achieve That

Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce

The smoked paprika is meant to give this recipe a smoky flavor, and for us, its just the right amount. If you usually prefer a more smoky sauce, you can add 1-3 teaspoons of liquid smoke to the recipe to help boost that smokiness. I would start with 1 teaspoon and build from there based on preference!

Lillie’s Q Carolina Barbeque Sauce

Some of the best barbecue in the world can be found in the Western part of North Carolina. Lillie’s Q Carolina Barbeque Sauce is hands down the best sauce available anywhere if you want to replicate that Western North Carolina taste. Nothing else is even remotely close.

The first flavor that hits you is vinegar, followed closely by a tangy depth created with lime juice and apple juice. If you’re looking for a sweet barbecue sauce or one that has a strong tomato base, this isn’t the sauce for you. But before you dismiss it, give it a chance. Seriously. You don’t want to miss out and it might change everything you thought you knew about barbecue done right.

Lillie’s Q Carolina Barbeque Sauce tastes heavenly on smoked or grilled chicken, beef brisket, and pulled pork. You will be convinced that you’re back at your grandma’s house and you’re once again devouring her secret sauce. A word of warning: this isn’t as thick as other types of barbecue sauce, so pour carefully.

Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce

If you enjoy ingesting a whole lot of sugar, you’ll love Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce. In fact, there’s so much of it in this sauce that it’s the first ingredient listed on the bottle. Yuck! Why would they ruin what used to be a totally acceptable barbecue sauce? Adding a little bit of sweetness to your sauce is one thing, but turning into a bottle of nothing but sugar is just plain gross and not what anyone is looking for in a barbecue sauce.

To make matters even worse, Kraft attempts to cover up the sweetness by adding an obnoxious level of spiciness. Two problems: First, the spiciness isn’t pleasant it tastes like stale black pepper. Secondly, it really doesn’t mix well with all the sugar. This stuff is just a disaster. All that sugar can’t be too great for your health, either. Avoid it, even if it’s the cheapest option on the shelf.

Trader Joe’s Carolina Gold Barbeque Sauce

Give kudos to Trader Joe’s for not being bashful about stepping out of the box to create a one-of-a-kind barbecue sauce. This stuff is really unique and really good. While you can put it on a cheeseburger or a sub sandwich, it really stands out when used with chicken. If you’re searching for a sauce to use for dipping chicken, this is it.

Trader Joe’s Carolina Gold Barbeque Sauce has a strong mustard base but it successfully blends in sweetness from molasses and a subtle hint of smoke. Besides chicken, this is the sauce to use on grilled vegetables. While it’s absolutely fine on pork and beef, you will appreciate what it can do to take your chicken and vegetables to the next level.

Unlike many of the competing barbecue sauces, Trader Joe’s found the optimal balance between being easy enough to pour yet still being thick and creamy enough to use as a dipping sauce.

Rufus Teague Honey Sweet Bbq Sauce

Sweet Baby Ray

According to the label, Rufus Teague made some barbecue sauce, put it in a jar, and shared it with his boys. It was so good, his boys pestered him until he made another batch. And from there, this sauce spread from Kansas City to the rest of the country. Give Rufus Teague Honey Sweet BBQ Sauce a taste and you too will be hankering for more once you run out.

Most barbecue sauces that try to incorporate honey are failures but this one is a home run. It has a sweet taste but the sweetness has depth due to the perfect mix of honey, brown sugar, white sugar, molasses, orange juice concentrate, and raisin paste. It’s like an orchestra of heavenly nectar that everyone with a sweet tooth can enjoy.

The label also says Rufus Teague Honey Sweet BBQ Sauce is “damn good.” If two words were needed to describe this sauce, those were two wisely chosen words. It’s impossible to disagree.

Sticky Fingers Carolina Classic Barbecue Sauce

If you prefer mustard-based barbecue sauces, you’re not alone. What Sticky Fingers Carolina Classic Barbecue Sauce does so right is successfully adding layers to the mustard. The result is a sweet and tangy sauce that manages to stay true to its roots. If you’re grilling and you want to add a tangy flavor profile, this is the stuff.

Forget ranch, Sticky Fingers Carolina Classic Barbecue Sauce is so legitimately tasty that it’s not uncommon to find this sauce used as salad dressing even at restaurants. If you think you hate salad and are quick to pass on your greens, give this sauce a try and you will be changing your mind.

While this version gives you that mustard flavoring that is popular in South Carolina, this company also makes Sticky Fingers Memphis Original Barbecue Sauce that tastes exactly like the best barbecue sauce you can find in Tennessee restaurants. Don’t miss that one either.

Cattlemen’s Carolina Tangy Gold Bbq Sauce

Brought to you by the same company that blesses the world with Frank’s RedHot and French’s Classic Yellow Mustard, Cattlemen’s Carolina Tangy Gold BBQ Sauce will have your taste buds doing somersaults. The common criticism is that this barbecue sauce has too many good ingredients doing too much at the same time.

The first taste you’ll notice is the mustard, which arrives via No. 1 grade mustard seed and is given spiciness by aged red cayenne peppers and depth by paprika, onion, and garlic. Then, you’ll taste the sweetness of the sugar and the molasses. Finally, the smoky aftertaste is due to the natural smoke hickory flavoring.

All in all, Cattlemen’s Carolina Tangy Gold BBQ Sauce is an okay choice as long as you enjoy mustard being the dominant taste. If you prefer sweetness or tomato flavoring, look elsewhere. This sauce has tomato paste in it, but it definitely takes a backseat to the mustard and the rest of the competing flavors.

If you’re addicted to sweets, go with Sweet Baby Ray’s. It’s not particularly good, mind you, but at least it doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not. Instead of attempting to mask or balance the sweetness, this sauce doubles down on it by combining high fructose corn syrup, molasses, regular corn syrup, white sugar, and pineapple juice concentrate. Honestly, the pineapple flavoring is a quite interesting addition that makes this barbecue sauce unique. If you like your barbecue sauce really, really sweet, you won’t be too disappointed by this brand.

However, not only is Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce incredibly sweet, it also uses sodium benzoate as a preservative. Sodium benzoate may be linked to everything from ADHD, to obesity, allergies, and even cancer. So, if you’re not concerned with that additive , and you’re looking to add some exceedingly sweet barbecue sauce to your dinner plate, you’ve found the holy grail.

Kinder’s Exxxtra Hot Bbq Sauce

As the XXX hints, Kinder’s EXXXtra Hot BBQ Sauce has hardcore heat. It can’t be stressed enough that this sauce is very, very hot. After your first bite, you’ll be pleading for mercy within seconds.

Ingredients For Homemade Sweet Baby Rays Bbq Sauce:

  • Ketchup: is the base of this recipe. Keep in mind, you want to use a ketchup that isnt too sweet here otherwise the bbq sauce will end up being extremely sweet with the addition of brown sugar and molasses. There are several brands that have no sugar added, I suggest using something like that
  • Brown sugar: adds sweetness to the sauce
  • Molasses: add both sweetness and a deep rich flavor to the sauce
  • Pineapple juice: adds a unique fruity flavor profile
  • Worcestershire sauce: adds an umami flavor to the sauce. Keep in mind that Worcestershire does make this sauce not suitable for my vegan friends. So if thats you, you might want to swap the Worcestershire for one that is vegan friendly
  • Apple cider vinegar: adds the tang that you find in bbq sauce
  • Seasonings: Theres a few select seasonings I like to use that make the best sauce! Smoked paprika is the most important one of them all. It adds so much depth of flavor. Youll also need dry mustard powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Keep in mind that the cayenne is optional, if you want to make this not spicy, leave the cayenne out!
  • Hot sauce: adds a bit of a kick!
  • Cornstarch: helps thicken the sauce

How To Make Just Like Sweet Baby Rays Bbq Sauce:

  • Combine the ingredients: I like to add all the ingredients in a medium saucepan along with a big splash of water and whisk until smooth.
  • Bring to a boil: Place the saucepan over the stove and allow the sauce to start bubbling before you lower the heat and continue to let it simmer for 5-7 minutes. The longer you simmer, the thicker the sauce will be. Dont panic if it isnt super thickened by the end of the cooking time. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Serve: Brush the prepared sauce on meats or poultry while youre grilling. Use as a sauce on my bbq chicken pizza or in dips and dressings!

    Heinz Classic Sweet & Thick Bbq Sauce

    Heinz has been in business since 1869 and has been making its famous ketchup since 1876. Today’s Heinz ketchup is by far the most popular brand of ketchup in the United States. Recently, Heinz expanded to offering a new line of barbecue sauces and so far the results have been impressive for being the new kid on the block.

    Heinz Classic Sweet & Thick BBQ Sauce hit shelves in 2017 and it’s doing a lot right. As the name suggests, this barbecue sauce is sweet and it has a thickness that works especially well when used as a dipping sauce. It’s made with cane sugar and a variety of spices including onion and garlic, plus tamarind concentrate.

    Give Heinz a few more years and these ketchup experts will probably be climbing this list. As it stands, this barbecue sauce is slightly heavy on the vinegar taste. Heinz Classic Sweet & Thick BBQ Sauce is good enough to buy, but it’s still a work in progress as they continue to work on balancing all the flavors.

    Kc Masterpiece Original Bbq Sauce

    Another of the budget options on your grocer’s shelves is KC Masterpiece Original BBQ Sauce. And just like Kraft’s concoction, this stuff is absolutely awful. KC Masterpiece attempts to use hickory smoke flavor to balance its sickly sweetness, and the result is an overpowering taste of mediocrity. If you make the mistake of adding it to meat of any kind, this sauce is all you will taste. However, some people do make cookies with it how’s that for a testament to how sweet it is?

    Additionally, KC Masterpiece Original BBQ sauce has a chemical aftertaste, which is definitely not the taste you want in your mouth after an evening spent slaving over a hot grill.

    Don’t be fooled by the Hickory Brown Sugar version that KC Masterpiece also markets. It tastes almost exactly the same as their original sauce with just a tiny hint of the existence of brown sugar.

    Nour’s Keto Corner – Sweet Baby Ray’s – No Sugar Added – Original BBQ, Hickory BBQ & Honey Mustard

    Barbecue sauce is as American as baseball and apple pie, particularly in the South. This condiment is not only a ketchup substitute, it can also be used as a marinade, sauce, or topping when barbecuing. From pulled pork to beef ribs and from smoked chicken to grilled vegetables, you can find this sauce on just about anything.

    Perhaps the most fascinating aspect about barbecue sauce is the variety. Depending on where you are in the South, the recipe for the local barbecue sauce will vary wildly.

    In Memphis, it’s the molasses that takes center stage. In parts of the Carolinas, it’s a “mopping” sauce that can be used for dipping or as a baste for the meat. Other parts of the Carolinas are famous for adding mustard, Kansas City is known for its expert use of tomatoes, while Texas adds peppers to the mix to create spiciness.

    This list of barbecue sauces takes a look at the store-bought varieties and ranks them, from worst to best. Fire up your grill, take out your meat, and be ready to select the best barbecue sauce for the job after reading this handy guide.
