UPDATE: And the Winner IS- Carl, aka “Smokin Willy”. Carl gave us some great tips on how to use Stubbs with an actual recipe and directions on how to use the sauce for competition cooking. Thank you Carl for the great insight! Now this book and sauce is yours! See Carl’s comment below:
“Stubb’s is what’s happening in pro-competition barbecue. I will say, pulled pork is my favorite use of Stubbs original BBQ sauce. I use Stubbs mustard sauce as a base for my pork rub. It works really well and compliments the Stubbs original really well. I’m giving away one of my competition tips here, but mixing 1/2 cup of Stubbs Original with 1/2 cup of Stubbs sweet heat with 1 tablespoon of balasmic vinegar, 4 oz dark brown sugar, 2 oz honey, 2 oz maple syrup and 1 stick unsalted butter makes the perfect sweet/tangy taste a lot of the judges love. As for the Stubbs Marinades, I’ve only used his Beef marinade and it enhances the flavor of the Brisket aujus really well.”
Even before the days of GrillGrrrl.com, I have always been a Stubb’s BBQ sauce fan. Now, I get awesome -brand-spanking-new-on-the-market-sauce sent to my house on a regular basis, but there was a time that I would go to the store to buy sauce (when not making my own). And when I buy sauce at the store I always buy Stubb’s.
The Stubb’s Chipotle BBQ sauce has always been my favorite, though I’ve liked any of their sauces that I’ve tried. They now have a slew of new rubs, injectable marinades and sauces, and I gave the newly released “Sweet Heat” a test run with dinner last night. I used this sauce in my sliders, on the burger and as a dip and I couldn’t get enough. There is a good, slow burning heat in the sauce with heavy overtones of cumin and brown sugar. It is a highly addictive sauce!
Now, you can try this sauce and see what you think for yourself. I’m giving away a Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bottle in conjunction with the Stubbs Bar-B-Que Cookbook to the person who tells me their favorite use of BBQ sauce. That’s right, just leave a comment on my blog with your favorite use of BBQ sauce and why and this cookbook and sauce could be yours.
Giveaway runs until Wed, March 15th, 8am. Tweets, and facebook sharing will be given consideration for this giveaway.
