The best, absolute best grilling sauce is something out of Ohio called 37Brix www.37brix.com. this awesome allpurpose sauce is a touch of sweet, a touch of spice, and tough of savory, and all goodness.
It was developed by Michael George after the long-time and ardent BBQ'er found that his kids didn't like barbecue sauce. So he had to develope a sauce his kids liked, and he found it in 37Brix.
Let me know if you want some, I'll send it along. I've used it in the restaurants I've worked at and several restaurants in the area use it as well.
It's all good!
You missed the absolute best Bbq sauce, Bone Suckin Sauce from NC.
I pick up a bottle of Scott's sauce every time we are in N.C. It is the best vinegar-based NC style sauce of all. I have to agree with Chefcook about Bone Suckin Sauce. It is really really good.
