    Blues Hog Original

    I have very much enjoyed BH Tennessee Red, so I was excited to finally try the BH Original with the BB ribs I did today. Whoa Nellie, that original is WAY too sweet for my tastes. I'll cut the rest of the bottle with some NC vinegar sauce and see if that makes it tolerable.

    I agree. What's interesting though is on a spoon it's not quite so sweet, to me anyway, at least I taste a lot more of he actual spices in it and not just sugar. On meat though wowzer it's straight sugar jelly. It's also great mixed 50/50-ish with their Mustard sauce or any other mustard sauce. Good for chicken especially methinks.

      Hmmm... 50/50 with mustard. Sounds amazing. I vary on my tastes for sweet. I love BH. I also have a love affair with mustard. Why didn’t I think of that!

    I still love it as a final glaze on pork ribs. Helps cut the richness of the pork fat.

    I think it pairs nice as a finish glaze on top of a spicy or savory rub, but I agree... Solo it's too sweet

      I also thought it was way too sweet. I do think there are a few other sauces available though.

        True Dat, Thom Emery! Head Country is purty decent stuff, imo...

        BH Original is also quite tasty, mixed 50/50 with their Tennessee Red...

        Or, jus buy their Competition Blend, which is jus that.

        Too sweet is definitely a buzzkill, fer me...I vastly prefer savory, umami, an even spicy profiles, but to each their own.

          • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
            1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
            2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
            3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
            4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
            5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
            6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
            7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
            8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
            9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
            10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
            11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
            12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
            12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

            Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

            I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.

            I cooked 5 butts for a neighbor's shindig yesterday. He went to buy the meat and came back with Tyson butts, much to my dismay. I have had their ribs, and their stuff is way too salty. I'll make sure I have a batch of MMD handy if I have to use Tyson again. Stick ta chicken, ya'll. But that Blues Hog Original sauce was just what the doctor ordered to cut that saltiness Otherwise I agree, too sweet.

              I always mix Blues hog original with the Tennessee Red about 50/50 makes the best sauce out there IMHO.

                It is pretty sweet. I cut it with worcestshire, onion and garlic powder and hot sauce. Just mess with it til it tastes right. Funny thing, I have to go to north georgia to buy it.

                I too think it's too sweet. I bought a bottle of Tennessee Red and a bottle of original last summer. The red didn't last long at all. Most of the original is still in the fridge.

                  Yep. The Red is fine; the original, not so much. Troutman suggested above using the original as a finishing glaze which just might be A-OK.

                  Anyhoo, I am gonna try and fix the original by diluting with NC vinegar sauce...and then not buy it again.

                I think it's perfect. To top a sundae or just some ice cream.

                It also glazes nicely, but a thin thin coat.

                  Bingo... As a 1 coat thin glaze... it isn't a sauce you want to keep layering on... gives a pretty finished color on ribs.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill

                The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                masterbuilt gas smoker

                Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
