If you get out to siren WI, look for a jar of big butz bbq sauce. Their cranberry sauce is awesome,  and they have some similar flavors with crazy heat,  too.

I like to try pretty much anything new I see in the store that doesn't look like lame sauce.  I always look for something that isn't half corn syrup, but I'll go with sweet baby rays or whatever if I have to.  I just can't do KC masterpiece anymore, but I'll take it over Heinz.   

My current go to is some stuff called "Stubbs".  I'm making my way through the flavors.   

I got this "hot vinegar" sauce in a sampler pack at Oklahoma Joe's in KC last year.  I had the ribs on the grill, ready for sauce, when I hear the wife's reaction to tasting it.  It was weird, to say the least.  Wife ended up concocting a makeshift sauce by just jamming a brown sugar into ketchup and just about every thing else she had in the kitchen and it tasted like brown sugar in ketchup with just about everything else in the kitchen.  Still, I think it beat that sauce.  I sort of want to try it, but I haven't done it.

After sweet baby rays, it has to be bone suckin' sauce for me. The original is on the sweeter side but they have a variety of different flavorsimage.jpeg

Head Country is my fav. I buy it by the gallon and buy their rub by the gallon. The sauce is cheap but the shipping is bad but to me well worth it. Love there hot sauce on wings.

I have a couple of sauces you can make yourself on my page.   Here is one that is very simple and can be made quickly.  Just take one cup of ketchup and one cup of Western salad dressing and mix them up.  Warm it up on the stove and add a little apple juice to it so it can be used as a mop sauce.  Can use it on pork or chicken.  I do not buy any sauces but some of the one'w mentioned do sound good.  good luck.

John Hardy's here in Rochester has sauce that is good.  Back in the day, he started with Open Pit and doctored it up some.   Now they have woosified it.  Used to be I could hardly eat the medium, and hot was out of the question.  Now they have like 6 levels and medium is the new mild, and mild my wife will eat.

I make some sauces but I also found a sauce that I really like. It is southern spicy sweet from the Shed barbecue and blues joint, I think they are in Mississippi?. Some Cub stores carry it, you can find out those that do on the Shed page. No high fructose corn syrup, if you look at the ingredient list it is all good stuff, it does not read like a chemistry exam as a lot do. They have other varieties but I really like this one. Google the shed and see what you think.

You think that's good?! Tasteless to me. Some heat and that's it. Watery katchup, as Smurf would say. He'd probably like it. 'course, no real bbq places in CAWchester anyway.  They wouldn't know one here if it bit them in the butt. I used to be a Bullseye hickory smoke sauce guy, but it's hard to find now. I like KC and Texas style sauces. Do not care for Carolina style sauces. It's whatever works for ya, I guess.  ;)

It's not sweet.  You probably like the stuff full of sugar and molasses and all that.

Saw those new Heinz sauces at the Walmart last week.  They had a display of sampler packs on an aisle end cap.

    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
