EatingWell Taste Test: Barbecue Sauce

By EatingWell Editors, "Slather on the Sauce," July/August 2007

Find your way down a crowded aisle to a healthier barbecue sauce.

"I used to love Sweet Baby Rays but the first ingredient is HFCS. I found Weber real molasses bbq sauce and it's really good. It has all natural ingredients with only 230 mg of sodium, 8 gr of carbs and 6 gr of sugar. I am going to try...

Dino BBQ sauce is the only BBQ I will ever purchase. They don't sell it locally near me anymore, so I order it direct from the makers!

Best BBQ sauceEVER. amazing on ribs, chicken, pulled pork, brisket, etc....

They even have recipes where it's a base for some salmon dishes.

Amazing stuff.

I have the cookbook and make the Mutha Sauce, it's great! As a diabetic, it's one BBQ sauce I can use and it doesn't affect my blood sugar hardly at all. The store bought ones, I can't eat.

This might be the same sause that comes from the restaurant of the same name located in Syracuse NY. We have been there several times and it is the absolute best food going. We drive two hours just to have their BBQ. Goggle their name in Syracuse, NY to fing out where to buy the stuff or purchase directly from them.

I love barbeque. However, it doesn't like me. I finally had to face that I just didn't do too well with tomatoes. I have eaten a lot of barbeque in my life and I know good sauce when I find it. The 365 brand Texas BBQ sauce is a God send. I know it doesn't have that tomato color that people are used to but it is not only a good non-tomato substitute. It is a great BBQ sauce.

Dinosaur BBQ Sauce is indeed the same sauce served in the restaurants (which are amazing, by the way.) You can buy the sauce at the restaurant for $4/ bottle, or for slightly cheaper in the grocery store. If your grocery store doesn't carry it, try looking in a specialty or gourmet foods store. I brought home a case of sauce the last time I went to the restaurant, and I make sure I have at least 2 bottles at home at all times. Their Sensuous Slatherin' Sauce in particular is one of the best things I've ever tasted!

3 Locations, Rochester, and West Harlem, but there is something special about Syracuse. I have driven from Long Island for take out! I will be visiting family upstate in a couple of weeks and taking them for their first ever trip to cuse.
Don't let anyone ever tell you there is anything better then Dinosaur, anywhere!
