Just in time for the Memphis in May BBQ Championship Cook-off next weekend, Saveur gives us the tools to become our own pit master at home.
As any good BBQ expert will tell you, success comes from two things: how you smoke your meat, and how you sauce it.
My favorite part just happens to be the sauce. There are so many different variations, and while we all have our favorites, sometimes it’s fun to mix it up a bit, try something new.
So Saveur provides us with these four styles. Try them out this weekend so you’ll be the expert come next weekend when it’s your turn to judge. And even if you’re not in the Memphis area, you can have your own contest with these sauces. Have some friends over, a heap full of pork, and these sauces.
Or host a BBQ progressive dinner at local restaurants in your town to see who is reigning king of the ‘Q in your city.
And, Saveur has endless more varieties. Let us know which you like best!
