Author: Lewis Theakson
All sauces have their own unique twang and can come in many different varieties. Often times it is also a god choice to do some sauce mixing of your own every once in a while.
Barbecue sauce can have any number of different things in it, here is generally ketchup, worcestershire sauce, vinegar, onion, and mustard or mustard powder as a base. Some barbecue sauce creators smoke their sauces or cook them in large covered barbecues for a specific amount of time. Also the type of coals, burquettes, or propane used can be unique to the bbq sauce. This is a minute detail, but those who are loyal to one method swear by it and say that the other ways make a difference in the flavor of the meat. Some barbecue sauces are made specially for one method or another.
Another aspect to keep in mind is the type of cooking methods you will be using for your sauce. Some people prefer to use their sauce as a marinade while other prefer to use it as a sauce they put on after they cook the meat. There are specific sauces for either method, and good ones in that! If you choose to marinade the meat try not to get a sauce with too much sugar because this can caramelize or burn easily on the grill. Assuming you will be grilling the meat. Some people use barbecue sauce in their everyday cooking methods, if this is so a gourmet sauce would be most adequate.
There are many different types of unique BBQ sauces, the most important aspect is of choosing the correct type is to decide what flavor suits you personally best. After this is done you can determine what you will be using the sauce for and what kind of this specific flavor will best suit your cooking trends. BBQ sauces can be purchased at grocery stores, but some of the best sauces can be found online, where they are shipped from a unique little factory, in which all they do is make that specific sauce. This is an advantage because it is a specialty, where as grocery store sauce producers also make many other products.
