BBQ Sauce
« on: March 30, 2021, 02:00:48 PM »

I confess -- I actually like McDonald's barbecue sauce. I go to McD's only VERY rarely these days, but I buy frozen chicken nuggets at the supermarket and I'd like to mix up some sauce to go with them. I have heard that one can make a close replica of the McD's sauce by combining a couple of off-the-shelf brands.

Has anyone tried this? If, so, what are the brands to mix?

I'm looking for a BBQ sauce that's not overly hot or tangy; I don't coexist well with spicy foods.

I absolutely love Kraft's Hickory Smoke Barbecue Sauce. Cheap AF and seems to go well with any meat.

Famous Dave's Apricot Bourbon is my 2nd favorite. It does have a nice pepper bite to it, so you may not like that.

Kraft is good stuff, and Heinz has a lot of good sauces, as well.

It's crazy with all the specialty BBQ sauces one finds at the grocery, that the old cheap mass produced BBQ sauces are better tasting.

The standard by which I still judge everything is KC Masterpiece. Best bottled sauce I've ever had.

The celery seed/salt flavor in it doesn't agree with my taste buds. But I don't like that flavor in anything.

I have become a fan of the Heinz Memphis style and Kansas City style sauce at my local WalMart.  I would also like to try the Texas Bold and Kentucky Bourbon, but those are not available. I thought the Hawaii style was too sweet.

Yes. Those are both excellent.

I've not seen the Hawaiian one for sale, and I've not yet tried the Kentucky Bourbon.

They also have a Carolina mustard one, as well.

We are just old stick in the muds here, we will either use Sweet Baby Ray's for a store bought or I will make my own from a recipe that may be nearly as old as I am that was passed down from my mother.

A quick google search for "copycat mcdonalds bbq sauce" yielded the following site:
https://recipefairy.com/mcdonalds-bbq-sauce/

Looks like it's a combo of sweet baby rays and Kraft, with some extra sweetness added, then heated, stirred to combine and allowed to cool.

Trader Joe's sells a great Sriracha BBQ sauce - and I don't even like Sriracha.

I never cared much for Sweet Baby Ray's. It just doesn't appeal to me.

Have you tried the Garlic Sriracha Seasoning from Weber? Doesn't really taste like the Sriracha Sauce, but it gives a tangy kick to grilled chicken.

I like burmanís Memphis and Texas. Their Carolina style is also excellent but I like my own peach nectar and mustard bbq sauce better. Havenít made it in quite a while.

You should post the recipe for your sauce here in The Puke Palace section.  It sounds interesting.

I would have to make it and then write it down as I go. Assuming I could find the peach nectar agin. But yeah, I like to formulate my own and adjust the ingredients as I go until I get the taste I'm after.

Mom made sauce for Dad when he grilled.  He put it on chicken and pork.  Ketchup base, added brown sugar, Worchester sauce, lemon juice, and Tobasco.  Yeah, the sugar would burn if you weren't careful, but Dad was good on his Weber kettle.

is the Heinz BBQ sauce still available in your area?  My local Walmarts no longer have it on the shelf, and even the SKU shelf tag has been removed.  I looked on Amazon, and a lot of the recent comments are that people can no longer find it at their local grocery stores.

Very similar to the general purpose BBQ sauce I've made for years, only mine has a few more ingredients...

Ketchup, mustard, worcestershire sauce, brown sugar (or molasses), onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, ground thyme, and black pepper.

Best made a day or 2 in advance and left to sit so the flavors can meld and you can make adjustments on the fly.
