Raspberry Vodka BBQ Sauce & Tequila Lime BBQ Sauce... Oh My!

Mesquite Raspberry Vodka BBQ Sauce
Why keep boring your mouth and embarrassing your food with the same old mass-produced, highly-processed, too-sweet and predictably one-dimensional supermarket barbecue sauces made on huge industrial manufacturing lines by mega-corporations?

Instead, treat your tired tastebuds and dress up your grilled foods with one of these gourmet-quality, supremely flavorful and lovingly small-batch-produced "private reserve" barbecue sauces from an award-winning small business. One taste and you'll discover a whole new horizon of finger-licking-good flavor, whether you try them on ribs and meat or chicken, seafood, or vegetables.

Cajohn's Mesquite Smoked Raspberry Vodka New Mex BBQ Sauce is an intriguing combination of ingredients that usually don't find their way into barbecue sauces--raspberries, vodka, and New Mexico chiles--but when blended into this smoky, savory tomato-based barbeque sauce, they gracefully combine to produce a symphony of harmonious flavors. Complex yet approachable, robustly earthy but with bright berry notes, there's a hint of sweetness from the fruit and just the right touch of smoky depth from natural mesquite. The layers of flavor are quite grown-up and sophisticated so as to please the most experienced BBQ connoisseurs, but with a sufficiently friendly initial presentation and mild enough spice so that even kids and less adventurous diners will enjoy this sauce. Slather it on during the final minutes of grilling or cooking ribs, chicken (especially dark meat), duck, venison, pork, flavorful fish like mackerel or salmon, shrimp, and grilled vegetables. Try it as a dipping sauce with smoked turkey for a sensational sandwich or entree. 

Mesquite Tequila Lime Chile BBQ Sauce
If you enjoy the rich, smoky and tangy flavors of southwestern cuisine, you'll be thrilled with Cajohn's Mesquite Smoked Tequila Lime Chile BBQ Sauce, which is inspired by traditional ingredients found in Mexico, Texas and the American Southwest.  Natural tomato sweetness is enhanced with brown sugar and balanced by the citrus tang of lime and a splash of real tequila. New Mexico chiles and natural mesquite flavor supply enough depth and savory notes to add an intriguingly dark richness that complements the brighter, twangier ingredients. In all, this is a beautifully composed palette of diverse flavors that come together to bring out the best in grilled, roasted or baked chicken, as well as flank steak, pork chops or loin, game hens, quail and other birds, tuna, swordfish and other seafood, plus grilled vegetables and even rice & bean dishes. Try it in your slow-cooker or crock pot, too.

Both of these new barbecue sauces are made with all-natural ingredients, and are on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company.

Zestfully yours,
