Buddha Bill’s Tequila Lime Hot Sauce Review

Hey Chili heads!
Do you have the fire starter that you need for the Holidays?
It’s Thanksgiving time and I propose the question, ‘How much fire starter do we need in our lives?” Being that it’s winter here, I spend the first 10 minutes of my return home from work getting a fire started in the fireplace. It seems like I always have big chunks of wood to choose from but I’m always lacking the kindling material to get the fire going. Continue Reading

Choke You Chicken Peri-Peri Hot Sauce Review

Hello Chili heads and fellow BBQers extraordinaire!

It’s that time of year again where we look forward to that special day.  It’s the day that we stuff ourselves (oops, I mean the turkey) to the point of exploding and then we are barbequing, baking, or frying it to perfection. Right now, some weirdoes out there are probably reading this and asking themselves, “What about boiling it?” As for “Atomic Eh?” I’ll say this once…I don’t boil meat! It’s all about the BBQ baby! Mrs. Eh? is reminded by my introduction of her great Grandmother boiling chicken with … Continue Reading

Charlie’s Hard Times Honey Mustard Barbeque Sauce Review

Charlie’s Hard Times Honey Mustard Barbeque Sauce – Every now and then a barbecue sauce comes along that makes the others pale in comparison. A sauce so well crafted that it deserves to be put on a pedestal and admired from afar, then admired right on up close. Charlie’s Hard Times Honey Mustard Barbeque sauce is just such a sauce.

Mustard, mustard seed, vinegar, red wine vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, tomato sauce, honey, apple juice, worcestershire sauce, garlic, onion, and spices make up the flavor personality of this beautiful sauce. If you don’t like mustard, you probably won’t like this sauce. Mustard is the star of the show. I love it. A good mustard-based barbecue sauce can bring any steak, roast, ribs, chicken, and even seafood to life. This one is totally off the map. It explores territory never before charted, bringing with it new discoveries in the world of barbecue. Continue Reading

Hey fellow Chili Heads!
This is “Atomic Eh?” wondering what is spicy in your life? Life is good, but even better when I have a new bottle of the “Hot Stuff” to talk about! Insane Chicken.com hooked me up with a great barbeque sauce. I went to the store and picked up some chicken and a nice prime rib steak. I love being able to go to a store, speak to the butcher and ask for exactly what I want. A lot of people don’t know that you can do that. Some stores will even marinate free of charge…all … Continue Reading

Peach-A-Licious Barbecue Sauce – Tomatoes, peach jelly, lemon juice, apple cider, vinegar, corn syrup, molasses, yellow mustard, brown sugar, liquid smoke, cayenne peppers, black pepper, cinnamon, garlic, and onion make up the delightful, fragrant, fascinating flavor of this beautiful barbecue sauce. Peachy keen goodness all the way through. The flavor of this sauce, with the ripe peach goodness, brings out the best in any meat you throw on the grill. I started with pork steaks, rib eye, and New York Strip. I sizzled those babies to perfection and painted on this sauce, served them up  with buttery corn on the cob and baked beans, and had a barbecue feats with my friends that made me the talk of the night.

The cayenne added to the peach juice perfection of Peach-A-Licious Barbecue Sauce makes it one of the most perfectly balanced sauces I’ve ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Continue Reading

Gringo Jack’s Vermont Maple BBQ Sauce Review

Gringo Jack’s Vermont Maple BBQ Sauce – If this one doesn’t sound like a winner to you, you aren’t paying attention. Right up front, I want to say that this is excellent on anything pork. I also cooked some bacon-wrapped filet mignon and coated it with this sauce at the last minute on the grill — just enough to sizzle the sauce on. The maple flavoring here does everything in the world to bring out a mouth-watering, savory goodness that you won’t be able to get enough of.

The ingredients here include vinegar, lime juice, chilies, garlic, sugar, onions, tomato paste, and you guessed it, maple syrup. Continue Reading

Excellent label, with a set of longhorns and a chili pepper, but labels alone won’t do it.

Everyone repeat after me, “Fear and trepidation!” Jolokia Peppers always make me think twice about using caution. Continue Reading

Buzrub Mild BBQ Rub Review

 alt=Buzrub BBQ Rub (Mild) – This is the perfect companion to Famous Buzrub. There are no ingredients listed here, but my taste buds do detect some of the basic spices, along with some not-so-traditional additions. The exact blend is kept under wraps, so I won’t risk getting it wrong by trying to guess. Let me just say that I taste a hint of something tropical in there, along with a mild peppery flavor. There’s also some very sweet notes. Point is, this is a beautiful, balanced blend of a variety of herbs and spices that will look and taste good on any protean your little heart desires putting it on. It’s a great steak, chicken, pork, rib, or even seafood rub. In fact, this one is especially nice on seafood.

The soulmate to this rub is the “Famous” Buzrub. It’s got a little more fire and a little less tropical. Both of the rubs are useful, each in its own way. Continue Reading
