BBQ season is upon us and I have already enjoyed several. As much fun as a BBQ is, there is only so many burgers and hot dogs smothered in brown sauce, ketchup or mustard a girl can eat so I have been a little experimental with the sauces this year. These are just three of the ones I have tried recently.
Brought to the attention of spicy sauce lovers everywhere when creator Levi Roots appeared on Dragons’ Den, Reggae Reggae sauce is a Jamaican Jerk Spice and is spicier than regular BBQ sauce. There is no denying the sauce has a kick to it. That is because it is made from Scotch Bonnets combined with Caribbean spices and Caribbean food is never bland.
If you want more than just the sauce, there are now many more products to choose from including ready meals and cooking sauces. You can also find recipes online at http://www.leviroots.com/
Not actual BBQ sauce but I had to try it. Tequila seems to be finding its way into everything now days. First beer, now hot sauce but it has not beaten BBQ sauces. It is very sweet and sticky, so much so that the chilli does not come through as much.
Never dismiss a supermarket’s own brand sauce. My boyfriend and I were both blown away by this sauce and we have bought several bottles since. So cheap and yet so tasty. Unlike Reggae Reggae sauce it is a lot smokier but it is just as fiery.
And just for you, here is Levi Roots singing the Reggae Reggae song…
