Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce Review
Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce label proclaims this to be from Paw’s private stash. I’m here to tell you, this is some good stuff. it’s beyond good, quite frankly. It takes me back to Pappy’s Moonshine Madness, which is one of the best sauces I’ve tasted, period, barbecue or otherwise. This Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce is right on par with Moonshine Madness. In fact, I’d say Pappy and Paw have been cookin’ it up together, probably sippin’ away at the booze they use to flavor their barbecue sauces with while they’re at it.
Here’s the deal, folks. I don’t know what hillbillies know about barbecue sauce that a lot of other sauce makers don’t, but whatever it is, the sauces come out at the top of the heap. It’s no wonder granny’s always got a smile on her face.
Old Grand Paw’s Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce is lip smackin’ good. I eat it by the spoonfuls. Who needs food anyway, right? This sauce is rich with ingredients that include tomato paste, cane vinegar, sugar. tamarind pulp, scallions pulp, brown sugar, green Tabasco peppers, honey, onions, liquid hardwood smoke, and a few other choice items that deliver down-home goodness. Top that all off with a big dose of fire water (whiskey) and you’ve got yourself a barbecue sauce that you can use for more than barbecue.
Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce has a beautiful dark brown color, a nice pour, and the pulp gives it a texture that pleases the tongue. The addition of the green Tabasco peppers is obvious, giving this sauce a good portion of its character.
Besides grilled meats, I found Hillbilly Home Brew BBQ Sauce to be a grand addition to baked beans.
There’s no strong heat factor here, but a nice warm fuzzy feeling in the belly does accompany large portions of it. It tastes good enough to make a meal by itself, and that’s no exaggeration. This, like Pappy’s Moonshine Madness, is a sauce worth keeping on the kitchen table. When you have something this good, who wants to hide it away in a cabinet?
