I stopped using BBQ sauce when I started my diet, it contained an unnecessary amount of carbs that I could be eating elsewhere to contribute towards a balanced meal, and I thought I'd be fine without it. Turns out I was, but today I ordered some hunter's chicken without the almighty BBQ sauce, and it came out with it anyway. Instead of doing the normal thing and correcting them, I decided that today those extra carbs wouldn't be so bad, and tucked right in. Boy, was it worth it, BBQ sauce is great.
I won't delve into specific brands of BBQ sauce in this review, just the idea of it in general. There are many varieties, but I can't say I've found one I haven't liked. Heinz, Tesco, McDonald's (both regular and the amazing one you get with the Chicken Selects), they're all great. It's like ketchup, but kicked up a notch, incorporating some great sweet and smoky flavours to provide a sauce that's great with a lot of stuff. Especially ribs, man it's great on ribs. I used to be a ketchup fiend, but now if you ask me what my favourite sauce is, I'm likely going to say BBQ. No matter what form it's in, I can't say no to a bit of that sauce. Perhaps one day I'll run a dedicated BBQ sauce review week. Well, perhaps not, but that gives an indication of how much I like the stuff.
My rating: 5/5
