I just tried KC Masterpiece for the first time ever yesterday, and I've got to say that all you Kraft haters out there must not have ever tried this sauce. It was like smoke flavored candy. I can't imagine it tasting good on anything other than boiled ribs, since putting it on something that was actually smoked would lead to sudden death.
Curious as to suggestions for sauces to try and to avoid. So how about some favs?
My favorite store bought sauce is Stubbs Original, tied with CS Spicy, both for use on brisket or beef ribs.
For chicken, I've really started liking CS Mild, and it's not too bad on ribs either. Another easy DIY chicken sauce is Heinz 57 mixed with garlic powder, rubbed rosemary, and honey.
For pork butt I make my own.
Least favorites are:
By far the worst I've ever tasted is Targets house brand, Archer Farms(I think) whiskey BBQ sauce. It tasted like axle grease.
Second would be my newly discovered KC Masterpiece.
Third might be Stubbs Spicy, which has a metallic taste to me.
Kraft original actually falls in middle ground, because it does make a decent platform that you can build a nice glaze from.
