This week’s BBQ Sauce comes to us from the ATL Georgia made by the fine folks at Firebud Brands. While cooking a whole hog at an SEC tailgate party Michael McCord was tasked with coming up with a sauce to compliment the succulent pig that had been cooking all night. What he came up with was a cider vinegar mustard sauce that would later be known as Slap Sauce.

Slap Sauce is the signature sauce of Firebud Brands, and it is easy to see why. The sweet tangy sauce is a little sweeter than what most people think of when they think of a mustard sauces. Therefore, this sauce is much more inviting to those outside the mustard region. You get a little black and red pepper on the backend for a nice balanced finish. Overall, I think this sauce would be a great introduction to mustard sauces for most people, and I can see people who have never tried a mustard sauce really enjoying this one.
