Sauced: Cherry Barbecue Sauce

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 7 comments

You can call cherry a "secret" ingredient to this barbecue sauce. It adds a deep fruitiness that gets well embedded in the sauce. It's noticeable, yet a little hard to discern at the same time. The cherries are paired with ancho chili powder, which gives an earthy spice, along with the very distinctive white pepper. More

Lexington Dip

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 20 comments

This isn't a sauce you'd baste on grilled chicken, but rather, as the name implies, it's used as a dip or topping. Tasted alone, it's harsh with a strong bite of vinegar and a heat that starts to border on excessive. Introduce it to pile of pulled pork though, and it's a match made in barbecue heaven. More

Memphis-Style Barbecue Sauce

This "Memphis-style" is my favorite to make at home—it takes the aspects of sweet tomato-based sauces I grew up on, but by dialing back the sugar and amping up the vinegar, creates a sauce where seasonings and spice are more defined and achieves a pleasing balance between the main defining aspects of a barbecue sauce.

Christopher B. 'Stubb' Stubblefield, or Stubbs, a Texas Barbecue and Music Icon

Erin Zimmer 4 comments

Even if you haven't been to Texas, you might be familiar with Mr. Stubblefield. His brand of barbecue sauce, known simply as Stubb's, is stocked at most grocery stores nationwide. And though some might assume it's just a marketing ploy, that face on the package was real. He died in 1995, but his legacy (of making fingers everywhere all sauced-up) extends to the music world. He was as obsessed with music as he was with smoked meats. NPR's Kitchen Sisters has a nice profile on Stubblefield, whose Austin barbecue joint (also, conveniently, called Stubb's) doubles as a concert venue, and was hot this week on the four-day SXSW music fest circuit. From Neko Case to Ben Harper, plenty of... More
