Here’s another Southern Illinois competition sauce from our friends at The Sauced Up Smokers of Carbondale/Murphysboro Illinois. This is Macho Mustard, as you might expect a mustard based BBQ sauce but with a little muscle to it.
- MACHO MUSTARD NAILS THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOT STYLE
- SUPERB ON THINLY SLICED BBQ HAM, RIBS, BRATS AND MEAT LOAF
- ADDS A DELICIOUS DARK ORANGE GLAZE
- BASE IS SIMMERED UNTIL IT IS RICH AND THICK
- SMALL BATCH LOCAL SAUCE – NOT EASILY RECOGNIZED BY JUDGES
It’s base is simmered until thick and rich. Brings the atmosphere of a backroads dive with 40 cars pulled up, that tiny place with the killer Q.
Macho Mustard is anything but bland and finishes with a slight pepper spice. Not a burn but you might feel just a pleasant bit of spice on on the sides of your tongue. Just enough to remind you of the great BBQ you just had for lunch. This South Carolina style sauce reminds me of Dixie BBQ in Jonesboro, Mack’s BBQ in Cairo, and Jim ‘Slow Smoke’ Brunner out of Carbondale.
Sauced Up Smokers has so far released three of their Chef developed secret sauces: Macho Mustard, a South Carolina style spicy mustard sauce, Road House BBQ Sauce, a Kansas City Style sweet tomato base sauce with a slight kick at the end, and Fire House BBQ Sauce, a non nuclear hot and spicy habanero variant to the Road House Sauce. In addition we’ve got their Ninja Dust dry rub, a fantastic all purpose seasoning and BBQ dry rub. Adds Pizazz to meat, veggie kabobs, fries, and baked potato. If you want to compete yourself, these sauces are a good base because they are not easily recognized by judges. Small batch, strictly local stuff never been outside Southern Illinois and NW Kentucky until now.
Sauced Up Smokers started in 2007 when friends, Chef Ben Mesiti and Leon Kaufmann entered their first BBQ competition under that team name. This is a local product and we get it straight from Leon without middlemen.
Sauced Up Smokers will rent you a monster grill – They have a Southern Pride Trailer mounted Smoker with a 500 pound capacity that can be dropped anywhere local so you can be BBQ hero. A great ‘get them fed’ solution for commercial, civic and church events. You can have this big dog manned for you. Stoke her up!
