View Full Version : Sampler sauces??

03-25-2011, 05:37 PM
I don't sauce a lot of things, but when I do I usually use sweet baby rays original and i'm ready to branch out into different sauces just for the heck of it. I know a lot of people make their own but i'm curious if any companies sell "samplers" with a mix of all different kinds ranging from sweet & thick, hot & spicy, to more vinegar based & runny. I want to try a bunch of different kinds to see what else is out there. Any suggestions???

Don't look for samplers. Most good sauces have one or two that are really worthwhile.

Look at what you see others using and get a bottle or two to give them a fair shot.

If you haven't tried these yet, I highly recommend that you do.

Head Country
Blues Hog
Cimmarron Doc's

You can get all four at www.usbbqsupply.com

We like the AB Rich and Spicy (http://arthurbryantsbbq.com/ab/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=9&zenid=2707a45e4ed02f31db429641394e6b26) , but the original is not one of our favorites.

They have a mixed 3 pack I think I might get

Any other good sauces have a mix package like this?

I first learned about Head Country when somebody sent me a gift box for Christmas a few years ago.


I got the Christmas gift box. Original, Hickory and Spicy along with their outstanding rub.

Sampler #2 I'll be ordering, keep em coming guys! I want to try as many as I can to get a broad range until I find a few I really like

Another thing to try is to take a sauce and put some in a cup and add seasonings, liquids, etc to kinda make your own. I like getting a basic one and then add apple cider vinegar and different spices. Or can add mustard or ketchup to sweet'n it up.

Just an idea.

Let us know what you try and how you like it!

Stubbs has some package deals also. The smoky mesqite is my fav.

Blues hog and Samokin are both great.

WeeWillys (http://www.weewillys.com/) is good stuff. Used to be able to sign up on their website, and they send you a very generous gift package on your birthday. Worth doing, trust me.

Famous Daves has a pretty good variety of sauces, that are all based on flavors from various regions.

Cookies (http://www.cookiesbbq.com/) made in Iowa, still uses real brown sugar, no corn syrup. Several flavors, Western in pretty good.

BigAl that's kinda my idea. Once I find one i like I will either tinker with it or try and find a recipe to make something like it myself

I couldn't find a Stubbs Package deal, nothing that had a variety anyway.

Ill def sign up at weewillys, can't beat free stuff!
Gonna check out famous Daves too, their variety sounds like what I'm looking for. A sauce from all the BBQ regions. Kansas City, North Carolina, south Carolina, Memphis, Texas, Alabama, etc
