Truly Texas - Mesquite BBQ Sauce

Truly Texas - Mesquite BBQ Sauce

Let hope that after the wettest April on record in the UK we will now be starting the BBQ season, I have to admit this bottle has been waiting for the better weather for me to c rack it open and try to create some proper BBQ.

This BBQ sauces just smell divine, a light smell of vinegar carries the sweet tomato, molasses and smoke it is hard to stop smelling this,  the taste is just as good if a little more complicated, as you can see from the ingredients list there is a lot in here, but when you take out the ingredients in the components used, it starts to look a bit simpler with tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce, salt,  some smoke, vinegar and  a few herbs and spices.

The mesquite smoke flavour is not overpowering, if you have ever tried using a smoke extract you know how careful you have to be with the quantities unless you want things to taste like you are licking the inside of a chimney, over the past few years I have tried a lot of BBQ sauces and this must rank as one of the best.

Ingredients: Tomato Puree  (Water, Tomato Paste, Citric Acid), Sugar, Vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce (Distilled Vinegar, Molasses, Corn Syrup, Water, Salt, Caramel Colour, Garlic Powder, Sugar, Spices, Anchovies, Tamarind, Natural Flavour), Salt, Natural Mesquite Smoke, Lemon juice, Apple Cider Vinegar, BBQ Spice (Sugar, Ground Spices, Salt, Corn Starch, Garlic, Onion), Onion Powder, Spices, Xanthan Gum, Mustard Powder, Caramel Color.

Now this is not a grill sauce, if you put it on meat that then over the hot coals on your bbq grill, this this will burn and you will lose all that special flavour, this needs to be added at the end of cooking and gently coated over the meat.

We tested this on some BBQ ribs using the method that the outline in a video we published by The British BBQ Society a few days ago, I saves a few ribs to try before and after the sauce was added and the transformation has to be tasted to be believed, the ribs before where good, but after was to die for, and my ribs did not last long as unfortunately the whole family could smell what was cooking.

Now this is not the kind of BBQ sauce your supermarket sells for £1.49 a bottle, this is a not just sugar and caramel with a hint of tomato, this is the real thing coming direct from the home of real BBQ and it is work the £3.99  a bottle, that said the bottle is 340g  or 12oz of sauce, a little bigger that most.
