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 making my own when this is gone though.

I love love love Dinosaur!!! I grew up in Syracuse area, eating it there, and at the State Fair, and really missed it when I moved to NYC, but they opened a location in Harlem, and I send everyone I know there. And this week at my work, they are here in the cafeteria for the week with the pulled pork and beef brisket, and their barbeque beans, coleslaw and cucumber salad. So anyone I work with that wouldn't normally be going to Harlem, Syracuse or Rochestor can try the amazing Dinosaur sauce.

I live in Boston now, but grew up in Rochester, NY. Every time I travel home I make sure to bring back a rack of ribs with me. Absolutely the best. Can't find anything around here that compares. Thankfully they sell the sauce at the Shaw's grocery stores here. Even if they say the wait is 2 hours to be seated, order take out and it is usually ready in about 5 to 10 minutes so you can take it home or wherever you want. Just remember to grab some extra sauce and wet naps.

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!

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!

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.

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.
