Default Best bottle bbq sauce?

Of course home made bbq sauce is going to be better, but I've never made it myself.

I will one day.

But tonight, I'm cooking beef ribs and need some bbq sauce, what's the best / your favourite brand of BBQ sauce to splash on some ribs over heat beats once it's cooked?

Don't know if you are near this place (http://www.usafoods.com.au/Contact-Us) but almost anything here will be better than what you can get from Coles / Woolies!

I picked up a bottle from a USA candy store (of all places!) and used it on ribs - was AMAZING!

I make my own but if I need to buy something quick I get some of the sweet baby rays stuff (I think they sell it at most reject shops and the like now).

Awesome..

There's a reject shop on the road on the way home.

Actually I'll have a crack of home made next time, looks to be super simple.

USA Food is too far from me, plus I need it tonight.

USA Foods are awesome. Costco also sell some nice bottled sauces.

I've also tried duplicating the JD sauce from TGI Fridays but I can't get it right.


I did come up with this myself as a tomato-based sauce which I quite like:

chop a small onion finely and start frying gently in some olive oil or butter. when the onion is just about soft, add a couple of teaspoons of chopped garlic. cook gently but don't colour them.

add 1 cup of bourbon. I used home brew. cook gently until the alcohol smell has gone and you just have the taste.

add 2 cups tomato sauce, and half a cup of tomato paste. I prefer the Fountain sauce, if you use something else you might need to tweak the vinegar a bit later..

add Ĺ cup of brown sugar and Ĺ cup of maple syrup.

add Ĺ cup of vinegar (white or malt, whatever you have kicking about.) adjust based on the acid of the tomato base.

add as much Tabasco as you feel like, thereís a lot of tomato to season so donít be afraid to give it some.

season with salt and pepper, again donít be afraid to go in fairly hard. a couple of teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce is also nice for some tang. if you have some liquid smoke about half a cap goes well in here too, but no more than that or all you will taste is smoke.

cook gently for about Ĺ hour with the lid on the saucepan, then toss the lid and cook further until itís a little reduced Ė I like it moderately thick.

warning - this stuff is like napalm once cooked down - it sticks and burns.

Not the best by a long shot but the one I cook ribs in all the time is marathon smokey. Straight out of the bottle it's mediocre, but mixed in with a little orange juice, it makes for an great rib marinate. My family and I find it comes out better than the typically better bbq sauces we've tried.

I like the HP spicy bbq, not stupidly sweet, got a good tang and depth of flavour - http://www2.woolworthsonline.com.au/...barbecue-sauce


Not strictly a bbq sauce, but my all time favourite is the HP guinness sauce, this is just made for bacon and eggs after a big night. Harder to find, usually get it at British type shops.

have you tried Glasseye Creek? Bit different to the lot and cost about $15 a pop but I reckon worth it.
