Supermarket barbecue sauces can be so sweet they overwhelm what they're meant to complement. The trick is finding one that's more savory than sweet. Pork Barrel's Original BBQ Sauce does just that; ribs on the grill and chicken wings will love the robust tomato-based recipe and vivid peppercorn kick inspired by Kansas City and Memphis barbecue flavors. Every barbecue region skews the sauce differently; for a taste of South Carolina, try Pork Barrel Mustard BBQ Sauce, with a sweet, smoky bite that's delicious on pork or pretzels. Pork Barrel barbecue sauces, believe it or not, also score high in healthfulness: All are gluten free and contain no high-fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or MSG.
