Review: Better Than Bad Sex BBQ Sauce
My 13-year-old daughter takes the pictures for me when I do reviews so you can imagine my astonishment when this sauce arrived in the mail.
Ingredients: Tomato Sauce (water, tomato paste, salt, high fructose corn syrup, citric Acid, garlic powder, spices) Brown Sugar (sugar, molasses) Honey, Vinegar, molasses, Spices and Coloring, Worcestire Sauce (vinegar, Molasses, high fructose corn syrup, anchovies, water, onion, salt, Garlic, tamarind extract, cloves, natural flavorings, Chile pepper extract,Hydrolyzed soy and corn protein) Soy Sauce (water, wheat, soybeans, Salt, sodium benzoate: less than 1/10 of 1% as a preservative) liquid smoke,(Water, natural hickory smoke concentrate) salt, granulated garlic, xanthangum, lime juice (water, lime concentrate) lemon juice (water, lemon juice concentrate)
The list of ingredients is rather long due to in part listing the ingredients that are within ingredients. Notice that the common denominator in all of these ingredients is sugar. Whether its’ called corn syrup, honey or molasses, it’s still sugar and lots of it.
The sauce itself is really not bad. The aroma matches the taste. What I mean is that by smelling the sauce, you just know how it will taste. The thickness and color are good.
Heat: not applicable
Overall: A lot of times I find that keeping things simple is better. I have had some extremely good Barbecue sauces that had very few ingredients. I personally don’t want complex sauces to alter the meats that I am grilling. I liked this sauce, but I think some adjustments to the ingredients could really make this sauce a winner. 6/10
