Gary Glen Reviews: Big Butz BBQ Sauce Cranberry and Hot!

The National Barbecue Association held it’s annual conference for 2014 in San Marco, TX and as the BBQ Pro Shop does every year, we like to recognize the Product, Rub and Sauce partners who placed in the Top 5 this year and  use this as an opportunity to find new products that we should add to our All Star Line-up! BBQ Pro Shop has always made a commitment to find the best products from the professional pitmasters and family recipes that make the products so unique that you cannot find them in your local specialty shops.

One stand out this year was Famous Dave, I have had the

opportunity to get to know Dave Anderson just a little bit better through my association with the Illinois BBQ Alliance and he is a true BBQ man, through and through. The success of Famous Dave’s and it’s ability to stay true to BBQ through all of the expansion and success is something I appreciate. My family was in Hayward, WI this past summer and had the chance to visit the Original Famous Dave’s on the lake and all of the sauces and food was just great, highly 2014 you stop by if you are in the neighborhood!

Big Butz BBQ Sauce: Gary Glen Review

The Gary Glen Experience

Gary Glen Reviews: Big Butz BBQ Sauce Cranberry and Hot!

We just love Gary Glen’s Blog The Gary Glen Experience, first of all he is from Chicago and anyone who can BBQ and grill year round in Chicago is a friend of ours. His site is very extensive in what he offers his extensive passion for BBQ and applies it to his reviews, recipes and product recommendations.   The Gary Glen Experience is a first class BBQ blog. We discovered Gary Glen on Twitter, and you can follow @GaryGlen on Twitter as a respected member of the BBQ community. BBQ Pro Shop just started to carry Yah Butz Big Butz BBQ Sauce and Gary recently reviewed Big Butz BBQ Sauce and here is an excerpt from what we would consider a professional review:

Apply the Meat Taste Test

On a batch of grilled chicken thighs and smoked pulled pork, I ran the sauces through some paces. The original hot performed quite well on the meat. The sauce’s consistency held to the chicken and didn’t drip all over the place on the pork sandwiches. The heat level toned down a bit once on both meats as did the smoke flavor on the smoked pork.

The Cranberry sauce seemed a bit thinner and required one more application on the chicken before serving, yet blended nicely into the shreds of the pulled pork. With less smoke flavor than the original sauce, it left my hickory smoke on the pork alone yet gave the chicken a mild smokey taste.

Please read the rest of Gary Glen’s review HERE. Thank you Gary Glen for a great review. We are going to make some wings for the Super Bowl this weekend and apply Big Butz to the final product, my kids love sweet sauce and so we are excited to see how they come out.

You can buy Big Butz BBQ Sauce in all flavors at BBQ Pro Shop in the Sauces section.
