Summer is just around the corner, which means it's time to break out the BBQ grill and get cooking! And what's a BBQ without the perfect sauce to complement your meat? In this ultimate guide to BBQ sauces, we'll explore the different styles of BBQ sauces and review some of the top products available on Some Like It Hot. Shop.

Styles of BBQ Sauce:

There are four main styles of BBQ sauce: tomato-based, vinegar-based, mustard-based, and mayonnaise-based. Each style has its own unique flavor profile and is best paired with different types of meats.

Tomato-based BBQ sauces are sweet and tangy with a tomato base, usually paired with beef or pork. Vinegar-based BBQ sauces are thinner and have a tart flavor, often used on pulled pork or chicken. Mustard-based BBQ sauces are a little bit spicy and sweet, perfect for pairing with chicken or sausages. Finally, mayonnaise-based BBQ sauces are creamy and tangy, often used for dipping chicken or shrimp.
