There are very few sauces that I can honestly say, "You can eat from a spoon".
First let me start off by saying, I don't consider myself a critic. When I publish a review on my site I am in actuality promoting the product. If I am not happy with a sampling of an item I have reviewed, I will decline to write about it on "my blog". But that doesn't mean I won't give my opinion when asked here at Dalla Mia Cucina! :) When I write a review with enthusiasm.. it's not that I am being paid to give it high rankings.. it's because I truly liked the product and would purchase it as needed on my own.
So on to Country Bob's... "I loved this sauce", and you can quote me on that!
In general meat sauces are easy to make. Whether you use catsup or tomato paste, molasses, brown sugar or honey, smoke flavoring, apple cider vinegar, pepper, hot sauce, or worcestershire.. there are a myriad of ways to prepare it, but if the quantities are off, it can be too sweet, bitter or fire extinguisher needed hot!
Barbeque sauces are a favorite of my children's as well as my husbands. My husband and I like it a little on the spicy side, but for the sake of the little ones, we usually keep it mild. When I opened the bottle I wasn't sure what I would get but surprisingly it had a fresh taste, no side affect of bitterness from too much spice, the sweetness was not overpowering and the tomato was there but not distinguishably pasty. It all melded wonderfully and the smell.. the distinct flavor of what we love about grilling!
Country Bob's offers a variety of sauces as well as seasonings. I was a proud recipient of two bottles of "Uncle Bob's Original All Purpose Sauce" which also comes in a "Spicy" variety. They also make "Barbecue Sauce", "Seasoning Salts" and just released their very own "Country Bob's Cookbook".
I made a simple chicken recipe with Uncle Bob's Original All Purpose Sauce. I was concerned that the little ones might find it too spicy for them, so I added a can of crushed pineapple to 1 and a 1/2 bottles of the sauce. I browned my chicken on all sides, and then put them in a baking dish and covered them completely with the Pineapple All Purpose Sauce blend. I then baked them in the oven at 350˚ for around 45 minutes. Checking periodically with a meat thermometer till it read 160˚.
I had twelve thumbs up on a fabulous meal thanks to Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce and the commitment to excellence the staff holds too in honor of their
CEO. Congratulations to a wonderful family, I look forward to many more meals and purchases from Country Bob's products!
