Stubb's Barbecue Sauce - Excellent Sauces for Cooking! [Review]



I had the opportunity to review some barbecue sauce by Stubb's BBQ sauce. Well, you've likely seen this sauce in the store and if you have ever wondered what it was like, well I hope I can convince you to try it. This is good stuff.

Did you know there's a pretty cool story behind the sauce? Well, C.B. Stubblefield (or also known as Stubb's) got his first chance at cooking for other people as a "mess sargeant in the US Army." After the Army, he moved to Lubbock, Texas, where he created the official Stubb's Legendary Bar-B-Q. It wasn't long until his restaurant and food and sauce drew a following. In the 80s, he moved his restaurant to Austin, Texas, and his restaurant became a famous stomping ground for celebrities, singers, and even presidents. When he went to perform on the David Letterman show, he handed out the sauce and told Letterman it was made from "Love and happiness." I paraphrased a lot of this story so I highly recommend you read it in full by checking out their website.

This has always been one of my go to sauces, and only partly because it's gluten-free. It actually tastes really good. In fact, I'm not usually an enormous fan of barbecue sauce (usually it's too sweet and I am SUCH a ketchup fan). But this sauce is one I love having with chicken dinners. It makes it taste...AMAZING. I love it for dipping and it's just so good.

I've tried a couple - Spicy and Sweet Heat. I am such a huge sucker for really spicy foods. I love the spicy flavor of this BBQ sauce. The sweet heat is amazing for cooking up barbecue because it combines the spicy quality and then also the sweetness that you may expect from barbecue sauce. It's just a good combination of flavors.

Not to mention, Stubb's has SO much more than just barbecue sauce! They have marinades, rubs, cookin' sauces and even wing sauce. Also, I have a few great tips for grilling for you provided to me by Stubb’s. I know most us usually for the standard staple of the grill - hot dogs and burgers. But think about adding in Stubb’s to your recipes! Like “Boosted burgers” and coat your patty’s with Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Ruband sprinkle with seasoned salt before cooking. Check out this recipe if you need ideas. 

Do something amazing with your grilling by mixing in your favorite hot sauce with Stubb’s Original or their Sticky Sweet Bar-B-Sauce, heat them both up in a pan and then add the hot sauce. Try out this recipe if you need ideas.

This is the time of year that I think is so fun for cooking and trying recipes (without any heat, I'm so much more motivated to try new things!) and so I'm really encouraging you to try out Stubb's BBQ sauce next time you are in the store. You can like them on Facebook, and Twitter. And make sure you check out their website for recipe ideas. Also, you can purchase their products online  or in a store near you. 

I received the above products in exchange for my honest review.
