One of the things about being a BBQ afficionado (addict) is that every trip away from home is a search for new BBQ rubs and sauces. This past week, I was visiting family in Northern California and took the opportunity to locate some new flavors, as well as an old favorite. I have been hearing about the new BBQ place in a town that is a little too far off the beaten path, even if I am on vacation, but, I found that they have started marketing their sauce locally in grocery stores, hence, two bottle of Shamus T. Bones BBQ sauce found it's way into my possession. I also found some jars of Larrupin Cafe Red Sauce which is an excellent version of a BBQ red sauce and is easily converted into a glaze. Here is an image of some examples of the haul.
Along with these two sauces, I found some lime powder and more chile powder to add to my excessively well stocked cabinet of pepper powders. I am not sure how these products will figure into my cooking just yet. But, vacation is over soon and I will be back at the kettle.
