Quaker Steak and Lube Buckeye BBQ Review
This is the kind of barbecue sauce that will have even the pickiest barbecue sauce connoisseurs nodding their heads in excited agreement over the quality of what’s inside the bottle. Made by the same folks who make Louisiana Lickers Sauce, Quaker Steak and Lube Buckeye BBQ is a surprising treat straight out of the bottle.
This is another plate-licking delight. Following the same everything-but-the-kitchen-sink style of ingredient combination as it’s Louisiana Lickers Sauce counterpart, Buckeye BBQ includes ketchup, hot sauce, Tabasco Sauce, cayenne pepper sauce, ginger, and corn syrup. The result is a very sweet sauce with an underlying heat that creeps up on you.
Quaker Steak and LubeBuckeye BBQ Wing Sauce is so sweet you can almost imagine candying an apple with it. The heat doesn’t come until you’re well into the tasting marathon, and by the time your forehead breaks out into a sweat, you’re so addicted to the sauce that you continue to eat in spite of the sweaty forehead.
Here’s the beauty of it. The balance of sweet and hot is so perfect that neither of them is too much. If it wasn’t for the hot aspect of Buckeye BBQ, the sweet factor might have been too much, but the genius who put this together took everything into account. Buckeye BBQ is one of those barbecue sauces you could drink from the bottle, and believe me when I say it, I’ve done just that.
Let’s talk about what Buckeye BBQ will go with. First and foremost, this is an excellent hotdog topper and it’s superb on burgers. It tastes great on shrimp on the grill. No-brainer uses for this sauce include ribs, steak, and chicken on the barbecue grill. I also used it as a straight steak sauce. It blows any of the top-name steak sauces off the table. I’ve even used this sauce for French fries and on pizza. Seriously, nothing has been off limits so far. Anything I can find as a canvas to paint this sauce with, I use it. It may be billed as a barbecue sauce, but it’s truly a heavy duty, all-around work sauce. My wife particularly enjoyed it on chicken wings.
Besides the excellent taste factor, the sauce is pretty. It’s blood red and comes in a tall bottle with a metal clasp cork-style top. It pours smooth and has a decent cling factor too.
If you want to experience one of the most unique barbeque sauces around, give Buckeye BBQ a try. I can almost guarantee you will make it a part of the family.
