If you open my refrigerator, in addition to several half-full sippy cups and some unidentifiable leftovers, you’ll see a door full of barbecue sauces. I love barbecue, and I love trying all different kinds of sauces. My husband prefers the sweet, honey-based sauces; I like anything tangy with a bold flavor. Mustard based, “Carolina style” sauces are my absolute favorite, especially on top of pulled pork.
When my friend Heather of Basilmomma recommended Best Boy and Co. sauces, I couldn’t wait to try them. Best Boy uses all natural ingredients and makes small batches of sauce to ensure that their products are top quality. Plus, Best Boy and Co. donates their profits to organizations that help children and families, like Doctors Without Borders. Their slogan is “Great taste for a greater good.” How could I not love that? I picked up a bottle of Best Boy’s Carolina sauce to try.
Let me just tell you, if you’re still buying your barbecue sauce at the grocery store, you’re shopping in the wrong place. I have never had a sauce that could compare to Best Boy in terms of the flavor. It was spicy and tangy, and the flavors were strong buy not overpowering. It was the perfect compliment to my slow cooker pulled pork. I love any sauce that makes me look like a much better cook than I actually am!
Dessert was a coffee-lover’s dream – vanilla ice cream with Best Boy and Co. Mocha Hot Fudge sauce. Yes, they do chocolate, too! The Mocha Hot Fudge was a great ice cream topper, but I learned that with such flavorful sauces, a little goes a long way. It’s not like the chocolate sauce you squirt out of a bottle. It’s so thick and rich that just a small portion will satisfy your chocolate craving. The blend of espresso and chocolate was a perfect balance.
You can purchase Best Boy products online and at several fine food retailers. I don’t know if I can go back to “regular” barbecue sauce again! They also sell other flavors of sauce and spice rubs to add even more kick to your meal. I am looking forward to trying more of their products and impressing others with all the flavor they’ll find in my cooking. No one has to know it has nothing to do with me and everything to do with Best Boy, right?
