Howdy folks, and welcome back to the Eat More Heat Skinny Dip and Chunky Dunkaroo. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, there hasn’t been a post in a few weeks. In keeping with the tradition of football (and because a few manufacturers were unable to participate), I instituted a few Bye weeks! I know, I know, terrible excuse. But I’m back, and here’s Mr. Cago’s Jalapeno Popper Dip, courtesy of the folks at Maxwell Mesquite & Co.
It may be December, but that doesn’t stop Texans from barbecuing. A quick walk around my apartment complex on practically any night guarantees a whiff of one of the greatest Texas traditions, as a hot juicy brisket or chicken is the perfect complement to a cool winter night. Of course, this being Texas, there are endless hordes of companies seeking to do some barbecue-related business, which means marketing sauces and other products designed to enhance the whole experience. ‘Cue Sauce claims to be “A Texas Family Tradition,” which suggests that this is quite the established line of sauces. I’m hoping that this sauce can join the upper echelons of the great barbecue sauces, so let’s take a look.
At iBurn we have in stock Urban Accents Gourmet Gobbler Complete Turkey Brine and Rub Kit. All Natural Gluten Free. This brine and rub kit is over the top!
Now lets get on with the review!
The world of spicy foods and hot sauces grows every day. It seems like each time I take a trip to the grocery store, the shelves are replete with more and more bottles of hot sauces, spicy barbecue sauces, and “gourmet” grilling sauces. The downside to this proliferation of products, though, is that for every legitimately good stand-out sauce, there’s a dozen pretenders and “me too” items clogging the shelf space. Too often, manufacturers take the safe road, which is why we wind up with dozens of identical sauces. Carolina Joe’s, at least, is willing to take a risk. Packaged in a 26-ounce wine bottle (complete with screw-top cork!), the company’s Grillin’ Sauce seeks to stand out from the competition. Hopefully it succeeds in more than just presentation.
