BBQ SAUCE OF THE WEEK: Dimples
Mic check one two...is this thing on? OK, so it's been awhile since I've darkened the doorway here at the Ulika Food Blog. Like, a long while. I wish I had a good excuse for why I've been away so long, but I don't. I still love barbecue as much as ever; I guess I've just been selfishly keeping the good stuff to myself (or retreating further and further into my own isolation...take your pick).
Anyway, I got my hands on some new barbecue sauces and thought, "Why not? If nothing else, just for old time's sake." So without further ado, here we go.
Dimples comes from North Carolina, but this ain't no vinegar-based mop sauce. In fact, if I had to guess at its origin, I would have thought Kansas City. It's dark in color, thick, sweet and smoky. There is some vinegar tang and some Worcestershire savoriness that plays nicely with the sweet and the smoke. No matter where it come from, it's tasty - a great middle of the road barbecue sauce that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
