BBQ SAUCE OF THE WEEK: Three Little Pigs Huff and Puff Competition BBQ Sauce

I always expect a little more when a sauce comes from a competition team. And especially so when that competition team has had as much success as Three Little Pigs Barbecue.

From the start, it's easy to see why this sauce has brought so much success. It's essentially a slightly thinner Kansas City-style sauce - dark burgundy, with a flavor profile that is rich and smoky and sweet. Strong worcestershire and garlic flavors produce a savory richness that is complemented by just enough hearty molasses sweetness. And it has quite a bit of heat for a competition sauce, but hey...I'm not complaining.

Rob and I tried this sauce on some smoked chicken wings last weekend and it was dynamite. And I have no doubt that it would be equally great on a rack of ribs. All in all, this is a great-tasting multi-purpose sauce that is truly competition worthy.

Grade: A
