Review: This sauce arrived to me with the coveted gold medal for first place in the Mr Chilli Awards BBQ sauce category 2017 and from the first taste it is easy to see why. This sauce is good enough to drink. It’s that good I feel like I’m doing something illegal trying it. Its such a silky smooth sauce whenever i eat it i hear Dean Martin singing “South of the Border”. Perfectly balanced with the right amount of core ingredients and slight spice from the chipotle. The flavour combinations reminds me of the US barbecue scene where this style of sauce would commonly be found on those grill and slow cooked Texas smoked meats to a tee. On my heat scale it’s a 1 out of 10.
Verdict: Melbourne Hot Sauce has established itself as one of the premium sauce makers on the Australian scene and this Chipotle BBQ is impressive to say the least. One of the best BBQ sauces you will ever have the pleasure of trying. Perfect as a condiment to your favourite meats from the farm(beef, pork, chicken or lamb) no matter how they are cooked. I found this sauce worked extremely well with some Texas smoked BBQ pork ribs I had prepared with a dry rub. Normally i would make from scratch a BBQ sauce to brush onto the ribs for guests but I decided to offer up this sauce instead as i wanted something a little spicy. An absolute diamond of a sauce, worthy of the first placing and of my final score. A PERFECT 10 out of 10.
