Rubs, Marinades, Grilling Sauces & Glazes

Gourmet Barbecue Sauce, Reduction Sauce, Simmer Sauce & Other Flavor-Enhancers


It seems that we taste a hundred barbecue sauces, marinades, and rubs a year.  Now, we’re in the process of translating our written tasting notes into online reviews. We’ve started this section off with one of our gold medal favorites. If you’d like to tell us about your favorites, click here.

How do you spell BBQ? People often ask about the correct spelling: Is it barbecue, barbeque bar-b-que or BBQ? The answer is that barbecue and barbeque are alternative spellings, and BBQ is the abbreviation. We chose to use “barbecue” in THE NIBBLE because more of the professional barbecue groups use that spelling—although frankly, barbeque, which has the “q” in BBQ, makes more sense to us!

Barbecue Trivia: The word “barbecue” comes from the Haitian Arawakan word “barbakoa,” meaning “framework of sticks.” It refers to a raised wooden structure used to either sleep on or cure meat.
