Before buying BBQ sauce for Labor Day, listern to what The Foodies have to say. Alabama Goods recently hosted a BBQ sauce taste test for a group of hard-core southerners with discriminating palates who call themselves the Foodies. With this group, the art of tasting sauce was elevated to connoisseur's experience. They tested commercially available barbeque sauces made in Alabama. Concealing the brand name, each participant was asked to dip a bit of pork roast in each sauce, and then clear their palate with a bite of white bread before trying the next. Each taster was asked to describe each sauce. As this group knows food and subtle nuances, their comments were colorful and imaginative. If you like a little spice, a little sweet or a traditional multi-purpose sauce, this handy guide can help create the ultimate Alabama BBQ experience.
