Thick and spicy or sweet and tangy, everyone has a favourite BBQ sauce. Most contain the core ingredients of vinegar, tomato, and sugar, but other ingredients like mustard, ginger, and lemon can transform a standard ‘cue into something spectacular. This summer, we’re taking our grilling seriously, and we’ve got the essential guide to every BBQ sauce on our shelves.
Flavour: Sweet like a teriyaki sauce with the addition of aromatics like garlic and ginger. Familiar in flavour and versatile in use, it’s a must-have for the grill or stir-fry.
Use: Baste items like Farm Boy™ Organic Chicken Drumsticks, Chef-Prepped Plain Flattened Chicken, or fresh veggies with this thick sauce prior to cooking, and then give another generous coating right before serving.
Flavour: Refreshing and pungent thanks to ingredients like cilantro, lemon, and garlic. Herbaceous with a slight kick of chili.
Use: Traditionally used as a steak sauce (like with our Beef Tenderloin), try it with our Chef-Prepped Chimichurri Flattened Chicken or roasted potatoes! It’s also delicious as a marinade to tenderize beef.
Flavour: Spicy (“peri-peri” means “pepper-pepper” in Swahili) and lemony, with a zip of garlic.
Use: Marinate our Farm Boy™ Raw Argentinian Shrimp, Chicken Kebabs, or crispy tofu with this pungent sauce, use it for basting, and serve a little on the side for extra heat!
Flavour: Sweet and sour, with a thicky, sticky texture that lends well to caramelization.
Use: Marinate Farm Boy™ Organic Chicken Wings before slapping them on the grill, and then baste with a fresh coat before serving. Delicious as a burger topping on Farm Boy™ Signature Gourmet Burgers or tossed with Farm Boy™ Vegan Beef-Less Tenders!
Flavour: Tangy from vinegar, spicy from chili and cayenne, and sweet from sugar and ketchup with a kick of Kentucky bourbon.
Use: Baste it over Farm Boy™ Organic Chicken Breast, Pork Back Ribs, or Farm Boy™ Pork Spiedini for Cajun-inspired cuisine.
Flavour: Sweet, salty, spicy, and smokey with an island kick! Scotch bonnet peppers bring the heat while warming spices like cinnamon and allspice round things out.
Use: Use it to marinate Farm Boy™ Black Cod, Shrimp Kebabs, or grilled eggplant for a pop of flavour! Baste them and serve a little extra on your table as a dip.
Flavour: Sweet and sticky with a molasses-and-tomato base, it has a touch of heat thanks to chili flakes and chipotle pepper. A Memphis-style BBQ sauce.
Use: Try it as a marinade on our Beef Grilling Ribs, Farm Boy™ Pork Spiedini, or Farm Boy™ Fresh Sausages, and then slather some more on before serving.
Flavour: Vinegar-forward with some sweetness thanks to maple syrup and ketchup, with a nicely spiced aftertaste.
Use: Try it smeared on our Farm Boy™ Organic Split Chicken Breast or Pork Loin. Optional use is as a dipping sauce or condiment for any of our Farm Boy™ Plant-Based Burgers.
Flavour: Sweet and thick, this Kansas City-style BBQ sauce is the most recognizable of the bunch as a traditional sauce for the grill. A touch of heat and a hint of smoke remind us of open coals or a classic smoker.
Use: Delicious on everything, from Farm Boy™ Smoked Sausages to pulled jackfruit to Farm Boy™ Wild Sockeye Salmon Fillets! Use it after cooking to avoid the sugars burning.
Origin: Kansas City.
Flavour: Tart and sweet with a sourness from the vinegar. A St. Louis-style BBQ sauce with a little kick of heat at the end.
Use: Ideal as a marinade or basting liquid for Pork Chops, Farm Boy™ Plant-Based Sausages, or Farm Boy™ Organic Chicken Thighs. Less sweet so it can be used to cook on the grill without fear of burning.
Origin: St. Louis.
